Private Advanced Trail Ride – Oahu, Hawaii
$135 per person
If you’re an experienced rider looking for some “giddy-up!” on your ride, our Advanced Trail Ride combines the beauty of the Hawaiian country in Oahu with the adventure of skilled riding.
The Private Advanced Horseback experience is a 90 min. guided ride that provides the opportunity for controlled trotting and cantering within the ride. The ride time includes a 30 min safety briefing and assessment. Riders must have previous riding experience and need to be comfortable at a trot and canter. Wranglers will assess riding skills and will base the pace of the ride on the “least skilled ability” of the riders in the group. Wranglers are responsible for keeping the ride safe and all riders on their horses so they will make the judgment call on how fast the ride moves out. If you have not ridden more than 5 times, this ride is not for you. Guests who ride often will enjoy this ride.
Riders must be at least nine years old and no pregnant riders allowed. Our weight limit for any rider is 240lbs. Minimum 1 rider per booking however ride must have a minimum of 2 riders. If the guest is the only rider, they will be contacted and can reschedule or pay an additional $25 for a private ride.
Ride Time – 8:30 am
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.
Gunstock Ranch is located 2 miles North of the Polynesian Cultural Center, between the towns of Laie and Kahuku, Oahu. We are a 10-minute drive from Turtle Bay Resort.
We recommend that you wear long pants and covered shoes for this ride. Cowboy boots are not required. Wear sunscreen and bring a bottle of water. Small cameras are welcome.

We do have a small pack on the saddle that can fit a water bottle or small camera.
