Skilled riding adventure

If you are looking for some “giddy-up!” on your ride, our Private Advanced Trail Ride combines the beauty of the Hawaiian country in Oahu with the adventure of skilled riding. Perfect for those who have ridden a minimum of 5 rides through the advanced rider.

The Private Advanced Horseback experience at Gunstock Ranch is a 90-minute guided experience that provides the opportunity for controlled trotting and cantering within the ride. This experience is for those who have ridden a minimum of five times to those who are experienced riders. Wranglers do a safety briefing and assessment with each rider. Wranglers assess riding skills and 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 make the judgment call on how fast the ride moves out. This ride does not guarantee that riders will get out to trot or canter as it is based on wrangler assessment of riders’ ability to stay safe in the saddle. In the event a ride isn’t safe at a trot or a canter, you’re still taken out on an awesome private riding experience at a safe pace.

Riders must be at least 12 years old and no pregnant riders allowed. Our weight limit for the Advanced Ride is 220 lbs. Minimum two riders per booking. A $25 single rider fee will be assessed if only one rider is booking.
