If you want to experience Hawaii as a Paniolo (Hawaiian Cowboy), then Gunstock Ranch is the right place for you. We have horseback rides suitable for folks of all skill levels. If you are looking for a true Hawaiian experience, join us for a beautiful tour of Hawaii’s natural elegance and peace. From our Pony Rides for Kids to our Advanced Rides, the beauty of Hawaii is for everyone to experience.
For over 40 years, Gunstock Ranch has been a family owned and operated working ranch at the base of the majestic Ko’olau Mountain Range on Oahu’s North Shore. We offer some of Hawaii’s finest horseback riding trails. Our trails provide you with breathtaking views that allow you to see from Kanoehe Bay to the North Shore. Our owners, Greg and Kyndra Smith, still run Gunstock Ranch with the understanding that a personal touch makes for a memorable experience. Because of this, our trail rides are led by experienced and friendly Wranglers, in small group sizes, allowing you to visit and experience the peace and beauty that Hawaii has to offer. Our goal is to give you an experience you won’t forget.
Gunstock Ranch offers horse boarding here on the North Shore. One of the few ranches left with mountain horseback riding trails, our boarders have access to ride and enjoy our mountain trails. We offer pasture or stall horse boarding. We also have a large arena that is open for boarders to rope, practice barrel or poles, and other rodeo activities.
