What a great experience in an amazing setting. The rainbows and ocean views are amazing. The ride is a typical nose to tail ride, but so worth the trip. The staff is extreamly friendly and inviting. My daughter is an accomplished western and english rider, but she still enjoyed her experience and the serenitiy. You need to be aware that it is illegal to trot or canter on the beach so knowing this you will not be disappointed with your ride. We chose the advanced ride so she was able to trot and canter on the beautiful polo field. The pictures with the rainbow, ocean and mountains are breathtaking and a wonderful memory for a lifetime. I highly recommend Hawaii Polo for the experience of true Hawaiian friendliness and kindness. As I stated, my daughter is an accomplishe rider and horse trainer, these animals are taken care of and very healthy. For a peaceful day on the island with all that the northshore offers, I highly suggest going early to enjoy the towns and beaches along the way. It was a great day for 2 teens and 3 adults. Thank you Hawaii Polo for making one of my daughter's equestrian dreams come true, riding on the beach. Oh if you go in December, you will see whales on enjoying the warm ocean currents!
