This was one thing i wanted to do when we went to deadwood for my 21st birthday and it was amazing! Barbara did an amazing job with matching everybody up with the right horse for them! Yes it is a narrow path and you go up hill a lot, but there are breathe taking views and her and the younger... More

Barbara Jean was friendly, informative and the horses were good as gold. A bit of a steep climb in places up the hill, but the views at the top were lovely and Barbara Jean was well-informed and attentive. We are relatively novice riders (and did have the opportunity to 'push away' from the trees) but none of us succumbed to... More

My sister and I (we are experienced riders) and our inexperienced husbands booked a ride with Barbara. To be honest, according to the pictures posted by other travelers (including the one above next to this post) it showed areas of horseback riding on level ground and along trails that were not so congested with trees. We would not have minded... More

We wish to thank Barbara Jean for her efforts and subsequent trail ride. It was comforting to know we were in good hands as the 7 of us were not experienced horse people. The weather was a factor but Barbara Jean worked diligently with us to make sure our ride was memorable & did happen. Our grandgirls (8, 12, 13,... More

This is a truly great experience. I took my 5 year old grand-daughter on this tour and she really loved it. Barbara Jean was a great and informative guide on this most scenic tour through the Black Hills forest. The horses were well trained and did all the work. Barbara was very knowledgeable about the Black Hills and gave me... More

My hubby and I went with out three boys, 6,8, and 14 and had a great time. Barbara Jean is awesome and I would recommend her horseback rides to anyone. It was our first time on a horse and we all felt comfortable.

My husband and I had a lot of fun on our ride! The horses were well trained but still had personality and Barbra Jean was a lot of fun to talk to. She was full of knowledge on the area. Will definitely go back next time we're in the Black Hills.
