This was our second time riding the 1 hour trail. It is very fun! The scenery is beautiful. It is pricey, though. Our only complaint was that I had the horse they call "Moped". Moped seemed tense and maybe inexperienced. When my guide came next to her with his horse she became upset & kicked his horse. Then later she... More

I took a 2 hour trail ride and it was brilliant. The horses are friendly and responsive, were well matched to the riders and the wranglers were fantastic. There were 6 people in our group and we were accompanied by 2 wranglers who were really friendly and interacted with us all the time. However the best part is the beautiful... More

Our 2nd trip to So Dakota & 2nd time horseback riding at Blue Bells. Super friendly staff & guided guides, amazing trails & friendly horses. They do a great job of matching rider to horse whether your experienced or a 1st time rider. Can't wait to go again & HIGHLY recommend Blue Bells to everyone!!!!

We went on a one hour horseback ride and it was excellent! The staff is superb and our two guides loved their job. They were so friendly. The scenery is breathtaking! You must call Blue Bell Stables! We are going to do a half day trip with them later this summer.

The horses and the staff are great. Certainly worth a trip through the woods. Lots to see and very relaxing

Wife and I did a couple hour horse back ride. Saw some beautiful scenery and had big horn sheep walk right up to us on horse back.

Guided horseback riding packages are available. We chose the half-day experience. The staff are helpful about helping you mount your horse, if you need that, and adjust the saddle and stirrups. They will tell you to use your horse's name, and some tips about the character of it. There is an upper weight limit. Children between certain ages may ride... More

My sister had made reservations for her family (her, her husband and and two eight year old sons) and I decided I'd like to tag along. So I just simply made a call to the staples and boom I was added. When we got there to check in I will admit that the two women that were there were a... More

Made a reservation a month in advance by email. They failed to give us directions in advance, instead requesting us to "call when you reach the park" to find we had no cell phone coverage ( well known in the park). When they did return our call to our cell ( the voice mail only picked up by email when... More

Our family of four (two adults, 12 year old and 10 year old) had a great time on our one hour horseback ride. My kids had never ridden before so we were a little unsure about how it would go. The guides were patient, encouraging, friendly and gave good instructions. We crossed a stream and went up and down a... More
