OAHU: Kuoloa Ranch and Horseback Riding questions

I am interested in the 2 hour ride at Kuoloa Ranch. (the scenery and "Lost" filming sites are especially appealing.) Part of our party is allergic to horses, so I though they might enjoy the ATV ride?
Has anyone enjoyed (or not enjoyed?) either of these Kuoloa Ranch activities recently?

Also, my DH wants a ride that isn't nose-to-tail "boring". He thought he's heard somewhere on the north shore there's a place you can be more free with riding the horses. I have not come across such a place, but please let me know if you have!!

Also open to other great horseback riding experience recommendatins on Oahu. (We've already done the one at Turtle Bay Resort.)

Thank so much,
Dina

I was there about a year ago. We just did the ranch tour in the old bus; it was a beautiful and intersting ride. The folks on the atv's looked like they were having fun. Next time I want to do their boat trip on the windward side.

I took my granddaughter & her friend (I didn't go on the tour) to Kualoa Ranch one hour horseback tour. They liked it, but it was nose to tail.

Thanks for the input. It sounds like a beautiful place.

I wonder if anyone knows of a "free-er" place to horseback ride?

thanks!

We drove by this place outside Laie several times:

www.gunstockranch.com

They have options for more experienced riders. I don't have any direct experience, however.
