What you'll do

Only a few October opportunities left! Keti is fully booked till February 2022, & Rose has limited openings for private experiences so message her a date range and group total with your request. Train with a certified miniature therapy horse, & two other miniature horses! Weather depending you may also meet other miniature farm animals. This hands-on horse whisperer class gives back to our island community at the same time! Your visit provides valuable exposure to new people & busy groups that these horses need to continue serving those in need. This is the only opportunity on Oahu to experience the world of miniature horses!

This amazing lesson will cover basic horsemanship, along with horse cues & signals that will guide you to feel more relaxed in the presence of any size horse. Discover secrets from the magical world of horses, & interact with the horses personally! Learn how horses communicate when they choose to be our friends & want to work with us. You will have many opportunities to capture photos and selfies with the horses.
This is a working farm, we are vaccinated and we sanitize our equipment as well as is possible, but, you will be outside in a large open area with live animals that respond better when they can see your face. Please book a private session if you prefer to be isolated from other guests during you encounter with a masked trainer.

Keti & Rose were raised to understand the dynamics, cues, & signals of horses. We both have dedicated thousands of hours working with horses using a light touch & soft-spoken words. With a devotion to our horses, we guide children & adults in learning to connect with them. Our miniature horses live on our biodynamic organic chocolate farm! All our animals, chickens, geese, sheep, cats, and horses enjoy time in open pastures to run & play with their animal friends. Biodynamic means healthy farming for everyone, the soil, the animals & the people who benefit from everything grown. All of our farm animals are truly loved & we take pride in their well being! We work with our miniature therapy horses to participate in everything we do! Our animals are LOVED!

The description doesn't do it justice. There is so much more to this experience than just working with horses in an amazing location. It was educational and still fun, something my family won't forget.

I loved this One-of-a-kind, magical and heartfelt experience! Keti and her family welcome you to their organic chocolate and mini horse farm which is located on sacred Hawaiin grounds and looks like a slice of heaven in this tropical paradise. Learning about the origin of the land and the history of its importance in Hawaiian culture really connects you to the land on a deep level. The mini horses are just the cutest and will bring a smile to your face! I am excited to go back in the Spring to volunteer with these special horses. I live here locally and can't wait to bring my friends and family here when they come to visit. Mahalo Keti, for this heartwarming experience that you have you have so beautifully filled with the true Aloha spirit. 🌺

Aunt Keti shared an experience like no other. Engaging mini horse training and horse whispering. Our group included my 10 yr old daughter, myself and my mom. We all enjoyed this experience with hearts full. My daughter said this was the highlight of her year. We enjoyed learning, conversation, and magical homestead. Even got to meet a rare Hawaiian ram. This felt like a personal experience. Mahalo

Our family had a truly unforgettable time at Native Hawaiian Organic Farm. The drive from Honolulu was beautiful, but the farm itself was absolutely breathtaking! Everyone in our group of 4 adults loved spending time with the miniature horses with Keti, even the skeptics! After explaining how they communicate and what they need to feel relaxed, each person got the opportunity to work with the horses, who were super sweet. It was a truly magical experience, and a real joy to be able to connect with such special creatures! After learning about the horses, Keti also shared a bit about the history of Hawaii and the farm itself, and we got to check out some cacao trees! Would highly recommend this to kids and adults alike looking for a unique and memorable family adventure!

Keti is awesome! She got some issues on our way, but she kindly wait for us and give us the best experience. The experience with horses are so unique and we enjoyed our personal time with the horses. We definitely want to do again if we have time. Highly recommended!

We booked a private tour with Auntie Kati for our daughter’s 4th birthday to learn about horses. She is obsessed with unicorns and all of the miniature horses we met were wearing horns! She was thrilled. Auntie Kati made her feel safe and comfortable around them and was great at explaining horsemanship to a four year old. They also sang some lovely songs and told a beautiful story at the end. It was so sweet and a perfect experience for our little one (we had fun, too). She was also very communicative leading up to the experience about directions, what happens in inclement weather, etc.
