Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

We’ve collected some questions that are asked here:


Can I ride a horse on the beach?

It is illegal to ride a horse on Oahu’s beaches.  There is no private beach on Oahu, so there is no option for a private estate riding either.  The closest you will be able to ride a horse on Oahu beach will be Hawaii Polo Oceanfront.  Turtle Bay is another close option to the beach.  Some additional info here:

No horse riding or manure allowed on public beaches

How old does my child have to be?

There are some places that will take a 3-year old rider.  Kualoa Ranch offers a very short ride, so if you want your child to have longer ride with you, then we recommend other places.


How much do you have to weigh?

If you are under 220lbs (100kg), most options are available for you.  If you are under 240lbs (108kg) there are still a lot of options, but if you weigh over 240lbs, then you will have to call and check if there is a bigger stronger horse that they are willing to accommodate you.
