We've been on a lot of trail rides, primarily in Colorado, but Andy's was the best we've ever been on by far! The horses weren't as sluggish and boring as normal trail ride horses, and they all listened so well. Andy himself is hilarious, and makes you very comfortable then entire time.He tells you the history of the trail and... More

Just got back from a trip to the Black Hills during an unseasonably warm spell. I phoned 3 places for trail rides - one number was disconnected, another answered and said they only start in May but Andy was willing and eager to accommodate me. He was kind enough to take me solo even though he usually prefers at least... More

Andy's Trail Rides is definitely worth your time. The experience MADE our honeymoon, we went on the 2-hour ride and the scenery was beautiful. It is definitely not the typical head to tail trail ride and that's why we loved it. Also, my husband is not very experienced in riding and Andy gave him plenty of direction and advice so... More

We are experienced riders who have done trail rides all over the U.S., and this was by far the best trail ride we have ever been on. We did the 4 hour back country ride last Tuesday, October 7, and it was amazing. The scenery was beautiful, the guide Emma was very personable and knowledgeable, and the horses extremely well...

I have been on several Trail Horse rides; aside of a wonderful Memory visiting 'ThunderBird' riding stables in Norman Oklahoma, a horrible memory of being suited with a 'Fatigued' horse having asthma in Hilo, Hawaii, 'Andy's Trail Rides' was seriously so memorable, a two hour unstructured ride -No Nose to Tail here folks!!! He even allows galloping?? You bet-cha.... He... More

My friend and I wanted a trail ride experience during our Black Hills visit. My friend is a seasoned rider but I haven't been on a horse in 40 years. Andy matched a horse to each rider perfectly. Our group was small, 4 people, and not only did we ride the trails but for a while it seemed like we... More

Our 1-hour ride at Andy's was a highlight of our long weekend in the Black Hills. Since there weren't any other riders, my husband and I enjoyed the luxury of a private guided ride up the mountain, led by Andy himself. I had ridden several times before but my husband had not, so Andy chose horses that matched our experience.... More

We visited the Black Hills for a few days, and the one thing my husband really wanted to do was go horseback riding. On the other hand, I am not an adventurer by nature, and really did not want to go. I found Andy's on Trip Advisor, and even though the ratings were great, I still wasn't sold, and was... More

We had a variety of skill levels, but were all oftentimes bored with regular trail rides where the horses are lined up and walk the whole way. We chose Andy's because we wanted a more personalized, advanced trail ride. Our guide, Cody, helped us to choose horses for our skill levels and we went off on our scenic two-hour ride.... More
