Description:
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 Keiki Rides to our Advanced Rides, the beauty of Hawaii is for everyone to experience. We work to keep our ride sizes small because we want you to feel like you have experienced a true Paniolo (Hawaiian Cowboy) horseback ride. On this ride, you are likely to see wild pigs, cattle, and other horses roaming through our mountain trails.

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. For chilly days it is a good idea to bring a light sweater or jacket. Backpacks, bags, and bulky camera equipment will not be allowed on the horse for the ride. We do have a small pack on the saddle that can fit a water bottle or small camera.

RIDE OPTIONS:

Scenic Ride
One of the best ways to enjoy the beauty of the Hawaiian country is on horseback. You and your horse will wind through mountain trails with sneak peaks of the ocean below. The highlight spot is our scenic lookout which provides a majestic view of the Windward side of Oahu. This is a great picture-taking spot, so bring your camera. The Scenic Horseback Ride is a 90-minute guided ride and is a walking-only ride, no trotting or cantering will be allowed. 

Optional Surf & Turf Package: For $60 more per person enjoy a picnic on the ranch & add on a Kayak tour, Surf Lesson or SUP Boarding Lesson for a full day of fun (Normally $90 per person) 

Sunset Ride
 

Hawaii is famous for its sunsets, and Gunstock Ranch is famous for their great trail rides. Get the best of both on our Sunset Ride in Oahu. Start out in the cooler portion of the day and experience the Hawaiian sunset skies while on horseback. You and your horse will wind through mountain trails with sneak peaks of the ocean below. The highlight spot is our scenic lookout which provides a majestic view of the Windward side of Oahu. This is a great picture-taking spot, so bring your camera. The Sunset Ride is a 90-minute guided ride and is a walking-only ride, no trotting or cantering will be allowed.

Advanced Trail Horseback Ride 

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. This 60-minute guided ride gives you the opportunity for controlled trotting and cantering within the ride. You must have previous riding experience and need to be comfortable at a trot and canter. Wranglers will do an assessment of riding skills and will base the pace of the ride on the “least skilled ability” riders in the group. Wranglers are responsible for keeping the ride safe and will make the judgement 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. This ride typically has fewer guests due to the experience level needed.

Sweetheart Horseback Ride

Sometimes the best way to get closer is to get away. Get away from the groups with this guided horseback ride for just the two of you, paired with a perfect, private picnic. Begin by winding through mountain trails with sneak peaks of the ocean below. On this ride, you are likely to see wild pigs, cattle, and other horses roaming through our countryside. The highlight spot is our scenic lookout which provides a majestic view of the Windward side of Oahu. 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 a half-hour of private time to truly relax. The picnic includes croissant sandwiches, local fruit, chocolate covered macadamia nuts, water, and Hawaiian Sun fruit drinks. The Sweetheart Ride is a 2-hour guided ride and is a walking-only ride, no trotting or cantering will be allowed. Suitable for all skill levels.

Frequently Asked Questions
Click on the red "Book It" button and you will see live availability. Keep in mind availability changes constantly, so make sure to book in advance!
H Tours Hawaii is a "one stop shop" for all the best activities in the Hawaiian Islands. Since we work with many providers, reservations are necessary. WE HIGHLY recommend making reservations, as many activities are at a discount when you reserve in advance. Some providers even charge higher for those "walking in" because they know chances are you're not going to walk away. Finally, a reservation ensures you have a space on the tour. Trust us you don't want to spend so much time and money to come to Hawaii and then miss out on an activity because they were booked out!
Choose the tour you are interested in, click the red “Book It” button adjacent to the tour information, and complete the booking form.
Most companies, if not all, require you to call them if you're trying to book something 2-3 days in advance. Do you really want to be spending your valuable time in Hawaii calling around to desperately find something that is available to do? While we can usually accommodate most last-minute bookings, we highly encourage those that are checking out our website far in advance to book 2-3 weeks prior to desired date. You never know if there's a convention, special event, or an increase in overall visitors in town, and it would be a shame if the activities that you want to do are sold out because you waited until the last minute. Basically, if you know you want to do it, just book it!
Gratuity is never required but if you enjoyed your experience, a tip is always greatly appreciated!

We've just had the most beautiful morning ride with the delightfully warm and intelligent, Lorrie Ann. The route winds its way through the ranch, taking in several landscapes and a stunning view of the coast and the mountains. Thanks for the great ride, Lorrie Ann. Anna and Laura from Australia.

Had the chance to go horse-back riding on the newly opened 1hr trail..It was great.. the trail was beautiful (especially the ride through the trees.. and the guide was very helpful and pleasant. I haven't been around horses a lot so I was nervous, but the horses were amazing, they made the ride that much more fun and I felt safe. After the ride I felt like an experienced rider- not letting it get ... moreto my head cos I'm really not- BUT it was fun and would recommend it.. thank you gunstock ranch

Went with the family. Children loved it! My youngest is a little timid. She did the keiki ride with Mike. She can't wait to go again, loved Sarge! It was great for a first ride. The 11 yr old and 14 yr old went on the scenic ride with Mike. Again, they are already planning their next trip! Couldnt wait to share their experience with their friends. Thanks Mike! Staff very friendly... we'll be back!

If I could rate our experience accurately, I would give it a 10. It was better than I could have ever dreamed of! It was our 1st anniversary and I wanted to do something special for my husband, so the staff worked with me and made our night unforgettable! It was a moment that I wish could have lasted forever! Every single person that I encountered at this ranch was amazing and full of the Aloha spirit! ... moreThey went above and beyond my expectations and the requests that I had for them to do for us! Thank you so much Gunstock Ranch for making our night wonderful!!!! We will never forget you guys!

My son loved his 20 min ride with Cammie and the horse, Barbie. He got to pet, feed and unsaddled the horse. He felt very proud and helpful. The price and the view of the land is unbeatable along with kindness of the staff. We will definitely be coming back.

Best place on Oahu for a "real ride". Went out twice on the advanced ride during my vacation, once with Kara and the other time with Chris, both were fantastic! Stunning views, diverse trails, and of course super fun horses :) I would highly recommend Gunstock for a friendly and less "touristy" experience.

Went with my daughter for the 90 minute ride. Kualoa Ranch was our first choice, a friend recommended them but they were pretty much booked for the rest of July, so we went with Gunstock. I'm a novice rider but my daughter does jumping and dressage and has been riding for nine years. There were only four customers during our ride and the wrangler, Chris, was a great guide. He let Mia ride at her own ... morepace, trotting and cantering while the rest of us would catch up at a leisurely pace. We had a great ride and I would definitely do it again if we are back on Oahu. Excellent staff and professional service.

Thoroughly enjoyed our ride today. I am an experienced rider and go riding almost everywhere I go and Gunstock Ranch is the only place I have found (to include the Mainland) that actually lets you ride to your experience level. This is my families fourth or fifth visit to Gunstock and we will return many more times. Jaden was our guide today and she was the best. We will definitely be requesting her ... morefor all future rides. Thank you for the great afternoon Jayden!!
