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

Andy's Trail Rides is one of the best trail ride experiences we ever had. He offers several packages and each likely uses a different set of trails. I can tell you about the 4-hour ride: First off, Andy is not a summer student, leading pony rides in a huge operation. Although we only met for the first time, he strikes... More

Great tour guides, who were able to get us in at the last minute. The horses are beautiful and so is the scenery. My 12 year old daughter wants to run away and work/live here the rest of her life.

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
