We had the four hour ride with Andy. Because of the rain the creek was too high for us to take the usual ride down by the river. Andy took us up in the forest and we thoroughly enjoyed the ride. Could have ridden another four hours. Loved Babe and Baby (the horses)!

We had a great trail ride with our guide Carolyn! The horses were clean and well cared for. Even with the rain and mist of the day, we thoroughly enjoyed it. If you can get a glimpse of Andy's crystal blues -- all the better! Thank you for a fun adventure! We totally recommend!

This was a fabulous trail ride. This was my husband's first ride ever and he did great. Becka and Carolyn were great guides and gave us a lot of information along the trail. The scenery along the hills was beautiful, and we even saw three deer and a wild turkey with her babies. What a great way to experience the... More

We did the two hour trail ride with our two younger daughters. By far the best trail ride we have ever ridden! Andy made the ride interesting and so enjoyable! This is not your average trail ride where you are ponied along a trail with no control of your horse. We were able to really ride up the mountain with... More

My wife and I first rode with Andy in 1998. His enthusiasm and fun attitude is contagious. We are experienced riders but this ride challenged us (which is what we wanted). Andy and his wranglers attend to your every need with safety in mind. The most beautiful views of the Black Hills. We cannot wait to take the four hour... More

A truly amazing experience!! First time ever in South Dakota and as far as our 9 year old son was concerned, we couldn't go home without going horseback riding. My husband found Andy's site and before we knew it we were on our way. Soon as we arrived Andy himself was there to greet us and getting everything ready for... More

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
