When visiting South Dakota, going on a horseback ride was on our "must do" list. This is just what we wanted. They knew exactly which horse would be a good fit for each rider. This made the experience much more pleasurable. At first, the trail leads you right next to the highway, but no less than 5-10 minutes into the... More

Called at 10 in the morning and were able to get a 1:00 ride. It was a surprise for our 9 year old daughter who had never been riding. Linda and her husband were very kind and accommodating. Heather, our wrangler, was wonderful. Our daughter ended up having an anxiety attack when she got on the horse. Everyone there was... More

We called Spirit Horse around 8:00 AM looking to make a same-day reservation for horseback riding. We spoke with the owner by telephone and he said " sure, just come on in and we'll get you set-up for a ride. He explained it will be hot day (95+), so the horses can't go on a long ride because of the... More

There was to be a larger group in a few hours, but we didn't want to have to return, so we were thrilled. The helped us "seniors" on the horses and Buster... More

This was the first time my husband and I went horseback riding at one of these types of places, so there really isn't much to compare to. However, the staff was very nice and eager to help out when needed. There were 22 horses in the stable. It was our wrangler's first day on the job, but she did great.... More

We loved our ride. This trip was well organized; the horses were paired well with our varying rider abilities/weight. Two of us are heavy and we were "up front" about this when making our reservation, not wanting to injure a horse. Linda (the owner) and her crew had people on hand to assist with the mounting and dis-mounting of my... More

We did not stay here. Based on our horseback riding experience, we would. We were surprised to learn that SHE can accommodate a wide variety of people. The weight limit is 400 lbs. My 7 year old was excited to be able to ride a real horse. Horses are beautiful and are trained well. They didn't take off on us... More
