Gunstock Ranch is a 400 acre working ranch located near Turtle Bay on Oahu’s North Shore at the base of the beautiful Ko’olau Mountain Range. The Ranch offers a variety of horseback riding tours, as well as pony rides for kids that allow a young child the opportunity to ride a horse in a safe and controlled setting. This “horse experience” is ideal for children between the ages of 2-7 years old. Older children or even adults are welcome to enjoy one of these experiences too if they want to ride a horse alongside their child. Children may pet and brush their horse before they are put in the saddle and taken on a 20-minute walk out on the ranch. Parents can walk along to take pictures.
