Gunstock Ranch - Sweetheart Ride
Gunstock Ranch offers some of Hawaii's best horseback riding trails. Gunstock Ranch is a 400 acre working ranch located on Oahu's North Shore at the base of the Koolau Mountain Range. Meandering through the spectacular Koolau mountains you will come to viewpoints that overlook miles of Oahu's finest coastline.
The Sweetheart ride is a 2 hour guided ride into the mountains to a quiet picnic spot. Our Wrangler will take a picnic blanket and refreshments by saddlebag to a beautiful rest point. You and your sweetheart will be left to enjoy the serenity of nature for 30 minutes. Your Wrangler will return to help you re-mount your horses and guide you home. Great for anniversaries honeymoons!
This ride is suitable for all skill levels. It is a walking-only ride, no trotting or cantering will be allowed. Experienced riders can choose an advanced ride to add advanced features to the ride. All riders in the party must be experienced in order to do an advanced ride.
