This is the best ride in all of the hills. This is not your usual horseback ride. Andy does a great job getting you placed in the heart of the hills were everything in the southern hills is very much a trial ride.

Took my mother for 82nd birthday. We had a blast, sang some songs with Andy along the trail, and learned some history along the way. Sleigh bells and scenery. Good times......thanks Andy

I've been on several trail rides in both Canada and the US. Andy's is hands down the best experience I have had. On our trip home from the west coast I decided to break up the trip with a few "tourist" stops - including a trail ride. My 16-year-old son did NOT want to go (his last ride was not... More

What a wonderful way to start the New Year..with a winter wonderland sleighride!. The most gorgeous horses we have ever seen. Well trained and gentle. Andy, our driver was very interesting and informative regarding history of the area. The ride including warm blankets and jingle bells was awesome. Hope to bring all the Grandkids out for a sleighride next winter... More

I could not imagine a more perfect winter excursion than a sleigh ride at Andy's a Trail Rides. Located just outside Lead, SD, Andy took us on a one-hour excursion through the woods. His sleighs were decorated for the season, and equipped with soft blankets to sit on (we brought extra to sit under). The views of the hills under... More

This was the best trail ride that my family has been on yet! Andy was our personal guide and was very patient with the kids and gave great riding tips while on the rugged trails!!! We were allowed to run the horses and were encouraged to let them jump over logs! Not your typical horses in a line trail ride!... More

My son and I did a two-hour ride with Andy. The horses were easy-going, the scenery was breathtaking and Andy was a great guide. If we are ever in the area again we are sure to come back.

My family and I (wife, 5 daughters ages 10-20, a boy friend and sister-in-law) had a wonderful ride. Thank you Andy, Melissa and Alex! Not the typical "nose to butt" trail ride. An adventure with many bridge and water crossings with Andy pointing out points of historical interest on the way. We had a ball !!! You don't have to... More

We enjoyed our ride....guides were super nice and helpful. Barn boss needs to dial down the attitude....grumpasaurous. Trail needed to have some trees trimmed and rocks thrown off and weeds treated.

My family and I made our first visit to South Dakota this past August. We knew we wanted to horse back ride as one of our activities but didn't know where until we researched online and found Andy. As soon as I read about Andy I knew that was the place. We arrived at Andy's Trail Rides the day of... More
