This was a great experience. It was a slow, comfortable ride and the staff was warm and friendly. Our guide for the day was Gabby, she interacted with us and was well informed.

Nalia and Sirenne were great wranglers - competent, engaging, inclusive. Highly recommend for any beginner rider. Horses were mild. Views were great! Ranch staff was equally great!

Not worth it - spend your money on something else.

It was fun *enough* IF horses are really your thing. The guides were really nice. My horse kept trying to pass the other horses so I had to pull on the reigns A LOT. My sister’s horse did not want to go at all. My mom’s horse tried to bite her. It required more work on our end - in my opinion. Also, I’ve been around horses a lot but these guys were especially dirty. I don’t know, it might be someone else’s thing but just not ours.

Aloha, We appreciate the feedback. We are so sorry that you didn’t have as relaxing of a ride as anticipated. We do a safety and riding demonstration prior to each ride so that our guests have all of the information needed for a safe and successful ride. Horses are living animals and do have minds of their own. Because of this, they all act a bit differently out on the trails. We hope that you all had a great rest of your vacation. Mahalo

Incredible first time experience!

This was our first time riding a horse. Gunstock ranch is not as popular as some of the other more crowded ranches. However, it was very authentic and we had a great time. The ranch owners and guides love their job and their ranch and provided us with awesome experience. Hanna who was our main guide ensured our safety while giving us the tour of the ranch and explaining everything. Incredible views, a bit of adventure and thrill sums up our experience!
