Choose from Three Options

Veteran trail guides lead riders along a scenic mountain trail during the day or dusk. Breaks through the tree line reveal glimpses of Kaneohe Bay, the north shore, and other portions of Oahu’s shoreline. Riders often encounter wild pigs, cattle, and unbridled horses along the way. Customers also have the option to upgrade their trail ride for an additional fee, see here for a list of upgrade options.

For parties, kids divide their time between several activities, including a one-hour horse rental for rides, one hour of an aboveground-pool rental, and two hours of a playground and pavilion rental. Although the number of guests at the party is not limited, additional fees are required for adding on an extra horse for rides, having more than 15 riders, a campfire, a petting-zoo visit, or a hike.

Gunstock Ranch

The Gunstock Ranch has been a part of Greg Smith's family since 1973. Born and raised in Kailua, Greg grew up helping his father on the ranch, and today, he helps his five children with rodeo practice and 4-H studies. The local rancher leads a staff of experienced wranglers who share intimate knowledge of the land on a variety of scenic trail rides through the 650-acre property. Visitors explore winding paths through the Koolau Mountain Range like traditional paniolos, Hawaiian cowboys, and catch stunning views of Oahu and the ocean in the bright light of day or the warm glow of the setting sun.

Expanding beyond equine excursions and care, Greg's wife, Kyndra, brought swimming lessons and aquatics to the ranch as a way to help children in the community and disprove the myth that you can bring a horse to water, but can't make it swim the breaststroke. The ranch's gentle horses and aboveground pool also make the Gunstock Ranch an all-encompassing destination for children's parties and special events.
