Our group of 2 adults and 3 kids enjoyed our horse-riding experience with Rockin R Rides. The guides are a huge part of this experience, and we were very impressed with our guide (Caitlyn). She did an excellent job explaining the dos and don'ts before mounting as well as explaining and intervening as needed during the ride. Also, her level... More

We are 2 moms that took our 7 and 8 year old daughters riding the 1 hour ride. We all are in-experienced riders and Kat did a great job teaching and leading our ride. The horses were well trained and easy to ride. Hard working people who strive to do a good job with their business. Highly recommend for that... More

My daughter loves horses and horseback riding so she really wanted to go horseback riding while visiting South Dakota. We had a great time with beautiful views. The people there were so kind and so friendly. ( the horses were kind and friendly too!!) So glad we made time to do this while on our road trip.

I am an experienced rider with 10+ years owning and competing horses. I love trail riding in new places and adored Rockin' R Trail Rides in Custer. My guide Walter and Peggy were extraordinarily kind and knowledgeable, and my little horse Lucky was the best. This company is very accommodating of all levels and ages of riders, and the horses...

Great Experience!! We did the two hour ride and it was a great time. The guide, Katelyn, was very informative and did an awesome job of making sure all riders were ok and comfortable throughout the ride. Loved the sights!

Every vacation we take we go horseback riding. The crew was great, love my horse Red Cloud, view was beautiful, awesome ride. We took a 2 hour ride with a huge group with a total of 15 of us. Would have enjoyed a smaller group to go a little slower to enjoy the surroundings. Would have enjoyed more woodzy feel... More

I really liked riding horses along this valley of gently -rolling hills. They treat the horses really well here and are very knowledgeable. We chose a quick hour ride only, so I realize we can't go too far in that time but following the highway for 1/3 of the ride was somewhat disappointing. Also, this is a single-file ride. We... More

On our last day of our SD trip we stopped here in the morning to make reservations for that evening. They are located off Hwy 385 near theCrazy Horse Memorial. Turn onto Echo Valley Rd just south of the Memorial, then right on Village Ave. They'll be on your right. Child rates apply for kids under 12. Cash, Visa, MC,... More

Set in the black hills of SD with spectacular rocks in view at every turn, meandering through bucolic meadows this automatically gets 3 stars. Unfortunately the whole 90 minute ride was within earshot of the very busy hwy 16A: the sense of adventure of exploring through peaceful ravines and trees was spoiled by the constant din of trucks changing gears,...

Oh what a wonderful place to trail ride. Katie, the young lady who signed us up, was friendly, helpful and very kind. They accommodated us although we had no reservation. Great introduction to riding (we were all new at this) and a very sweet guide to lead us on our trail ride. The horses looked well taken care off, the... More
