Advanced Sweetheart Horseback Ride – Oahu, Hawaii
$149 per person
If you’re an experienced rider looking for some “giddy-up!” on your ride, our Advanced Sweetheart Horseback Ride combines the beauty of the Hawaiian country with the adventure of skilled riding, plus a private picnic added for good measure.
This 90-minute guided ride give the two of you the opportunity for controlled trotting and cantering through our 600-acre ranch and up the mountainside. Upon arriving at our scenic lookout point, you will be able to enjoy a picnic lunch while taking in the beauty of the Hawaiian country. Your wrangler will leave you alone for 30 minutes of private time to truly relax. The picnic includes homemade cold cut sandwiches, fruit, chips, homemade cookies, chocolate mints, water, and Hawaiian fruit drinks and a bottle of sparkling cider.
You must have previous riding experience and need to be comfortable at a trot and canter. Wranglers will do an assessment of riding skills to determine the pace of the ride. Wranglers are responsible for keeping the ride safe and will make the judgment call on how fast the ride moves out. If you have not ridden more than 30 times this ride is not for you. Please, experienced riders only! Guests who ride often really enjoy this ride. Riders must be at least 10-years old and no pregnant riders allowed. Our weight limit for any rider is 220lbs.
Ride Times – 11:00 am, 1:00 pm
Please check in 30-minute before your ride time. There will be a 15-minute safety briefing prior to the ride. Our goal is to leave on time so we provide you the full experience. Please plan ahead so you are not late.
