Great trail ride in the Black HIlls. Scenery and view was spectacular. Horses were well tempered...even Pedro the mule! This was a very nice end to our stay in the Black Hills. Highly recommended.

Our inter-generational group was looking forward to this ride since it is the only place we found that would let kids younger than 6 ride (on lap). We had reservations scheduled for 9:00 and showed up a little early. There was no sign so we were not sure we were in the right place since no one was around. We... More

Had a beautiful day/ride yesterday! Went out with four of our grids, ages 2-7. The two trail guides Becky & Jill were absolutely fantastic with our group of 10. Well behaved horses and marvelous scenery made for a great time. Pricing was just right!! Sorry to hear others did not have a good experience. Sounds like the common denominator is... More

My husband and I made a reservation with Andy to do an evening 2 hour trail ride in Lead, SD and not only did he not show up but he did not answer numerous phone call attempts. The road we had to drive down to reach the supposed place for the ride was so rough and full of holes, we... More

Two young friends from China said that they wanted to ride horses while visiting South Dakota. I decided to give Andy's a try. Our trail guide was Becca. She was very patient with the girls. I was surprised the ride went over some rugged terrain but the horses handled it great. Despite her guests' obvious inexperience, Becca was calm, reassuring... More

Andy seemed like a jerk so we were so thankful that two summer employees led our ride for our family. We booked last November and had paid for half of the ride but he had no record of it when we showed up. I had emails and receipts to show we paid. Luckily I called for directions and he lined...

My friend and I have no riding experience and our two guides were excellent! Very helpful and very patient. The scenery was beautiful. The horses are well trained. We went on a two hour ride and when we come back we will definitely choose Andys

The two guides were great on our one hour ride. It was a bit muddy from the late June rains but still great. Lots of deer to see on the ride. You get to the top of a mountain with great views, ride through old gold mine area, and old rail roads. We had two daughters 8-9 and the guides... More

Planned a trip to South Dakota and looked online for a place that provides private trail rides so we could avoid a group experience where some riders are inexperienced and do not want to run. Scheduled the four-hour ride with Any directly for my boyfriend and me, asked if there would be an opportunity to run, and also told him... More

Do NOT waste your time! Set up a ride for my family of 6. Confirmed the time, all of the kids were waiting all week for the opportunity to ride in SD. After reading several reviews decided we would go with Andy's. Note to all of you, Lead is not a town that is easy to get to; we planned... More
