We went on a 2 hour ride through beautiful meadows, wooded areas and across babbling brooks. The staff that helped us get onto the horses and give instructions were very friendly and put us at ease with the animals. Our 2 guides, Addie and Ben, were awesome! The were very informative along the ride, patiently answering questions from some of... More

The staff is very friendly. Would have given more stars but we had to wait 1.5 hours for a 10 minute pony ride for my 4 year old. They were very busy but didn't tell us when we checked in that there would be a wait.

My family and I took a trip to Bluebell Stables. I rode a great horse name Jelly Bean, and my 10 year old daughter a wonderful horse named Blaze. She loved the ride so much, she wants a horse now! That was her first time, and the guides were excellent, as were the horses. We had a wonderful time, and... More

We had a wonderful time on a 2 hour horseback riding trip in the Black Hills with me and my 9 year old daughter. I have minimal horseback riding experience, whereas my child has more and was more comfortable riding. The staff was VERY friendly and everything seemed very organized. The price was very reasonable when compared to what we... More

My husband and I did the 2 hour ride. Thoroughly enjoyed it. The scenery was beautiful. Got to see parts of the park we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Would have booked a second ride if we'd had time. Will definitely book again when we're in the area.

Did a 2-hour late afternoon ride with my two sons, 10 and 13, 16 year old nephew and myself and my hubby. The scenery was fantastic and we even saw some wildlife - couple different groups of deer plus turtles in the creek - which we crossed about 6x. The guides were friendly and fun to talk too.

This was not a planned stop for us. We were driving through Custer State Park and came upon people on horse back. Then further down the road we decided to stop. The cost was very reasonable, the horses where very well maintained and the guides where awesome. The tour was suppose to be an 2 hour but ours was about... More

This is a must on your Black Hills trip! The whole family enjoyed the hour ride. The kids loved crossing the creek and seeing the wild life along the way. It was very scenic and relaxing. We can't wait to do it again.

We had the best time ever. Took a half day ride and loved every minute of it. My only regret was that I hadn't booked for a full day. You can't ask for better scenery and our horses, Cherokee and Whiskey, were a pleasure to ride. Thank you to our guide, Mark, for a great day. We enjoyed your company... More

Family really enjoyed the Chuckwagon Dinner experience. Wished we had more time to check out trail ride or that the Resort would have had vacancies. Recommended family activity.
