Horseback Riding in Hawaii

Some people claim that there is no more beautiful view of the world than from a horse’s saddle. And there’s something to that. Horseback riding in Hawaii, one of the most beautiful places you can be, will give you a whole new experience. You’ll see a lot more in a two-hour tour than you would on foot. Moreover, you’ll make a new friend with whom you’ll be in harmony throughout the journey. And it’s sure to be one of those memories you’ll never forget.

Among the most popular horseback riding tours across the Hawaiian Islands are those on Maui. Here you can discover all the beauty of nature on horseback. And that includes the valley of the Maui Mountains, waterfalls and rides along the Pacific coast. You’ll also find horseback riding tours in Hawaii on Maui with real ‘paniolos.’ The Hawaiian cowboys who make their living by ranching, roping, and riding will show you what real Hawaiian countryside life is like.

Tour for everyone on Oahu

There is a horseback riding tour for everyone on Oahu. The youngest and least experienced riders will have the opportunity to try pony riding at the North Shore Ranch. But even experienced horseback riders will find an Advanced Trail Ride on Gunstock Ranch just for them. And if you want to take your horseback riding experience in Hawaii to an even higher level, take a special ride. Like during sunset. You’ll find that on Oahu too. Or explore Kualoa Ranch from horseback – the location where movies like Jurassic World, Jumanji and Godzilla were filmed.

Experience Big Island from horseback

An absolutely breathtaking horseback riding experience is also available on Hawaii’s Big Island. Take a two-and-a-half-hour scenic ride on Wailea through open cattle pastures while enjoying scenic views of Mauna Kea and the Pacific Ocean on the Hamakua Coast.  You will be surrounded by tropical landscape, botanical flowers, native plants, and coconut trees, as you ride across open pastures with happy cows that graze on our trails. Horseback riding in Hawaii is great fun for everyone. For family, couples, and even if you are traveling solo!
