Saddle up for a horseback ride on the beach at Happy Trails Hawaii.
This family-friendly company is the only licensed horse ranch on the island permitted to take children as young as six years old out on their own horse. All of the horses here are healthy, retired polo ponies and well-suited for riders of all skill sets.
Chose from a 90-minute or two-hour tour, during which you’ll trot around lush ranch land and make your way past wild, multicolored tropical orchards, epic green mountain scenery, and gorgeous views of the crystalline blue ocean. Routes loop out of the forest onto a ridge top where riders will be treated to a stunning view of the Waimea Valley.
The stable is located a few miles away from the surf-centric town of Haleiwa and is adjacent to one of the island’s largest temple ruins.
Happy Trails offers several rides daily, reservations required
