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...

We just went for an amazing ride at Andy's Trail Rides. Becca took us out on Sunday morning, Sept. 28th 2014 Best trail ride I've been on EVER. Amazing scenery, we got to see some wild life .hear some coyotes and it is not just a flat trail. Up and down some amazing trails. I would suggest going to Andy's... More

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

I have been riding for a long time but my parents have very little experience except when they were younger. The reason I chose Andy's in the first place was because you are allowed to gallop which I was super pumped about! Our guide was super cool and let my dad and I gallop while my mom was able to...

My daughter and I went. I am heavy (300 lbs). He had a big horse for me, a smaller one for her, and Andy took us on the most amazing 4 hour trail ride I have ever been on. Daughter is experienced and I am not. We both had fun and he was super helpful in leading us, showing us... More
