My husband and I took our 10 year old daughter and her 10 year old cousin for the one hour trail ride. One of them had ridden before and the other had not. Everyone at Rockin R were so friendly and helpful that the girls were in in love with the horses before they even left for the trail. They... More

I go on trail rides twice a year and I feel this was hands down the best stable I've seen. Peggy was very flexible with our schedule. And followed up to let us know of a delay. Once there she was very detailed in our instructions, very personable on the ride, and concerned not only about our safety but the... More

My 10-year-old son and I did the 1.5 hour ride on a beautiful sunny day in late September. We were the only 2 on the ride. We have gone on riding trips on many vacations, and this was hands down the best we have ever done due to our wonderful guide, Walter, and the very well behaved horses. The guide... More

My husband and I were keen to find somewhere to take our daughter horse riding whilst in South Dakota. Coming from Australia we didn't know what to expect. On our day trips around Custer we had passed Rockin R Rides many times and decided to take a look. After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor we decided to give it a... More

My husband and I did the hour and half ride. We enjoyed it. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were able to book the ride early in the morning for the same day, (we were there late in the season and this may NOT work during peak summer months) The weather was cold that day and they even...

After seeing reviews we went for an hour and a half and it was perfect. Unless you ride all the time I wouldn't recommend going past the 2 hour mark. We could hardly walk even after the hour and a half ride. Outside of that it was a great ride and beautiful scenery!

My husband and I rode with Rockin R Rides in September 2013 and we both loved it. Peggy was our guide, she was great to be around. The horses are well-treated and well-behaved, and the nature around the stables is just beautful. I would recommend this experience to anyone!

We took a 1.5 hour ride and it was wonderful! We had Maddie as our guide and she was great. We have a 9 year old and 7 year old. They gave instructions before getting on the horses and we felt very comfortable with the whole experience. The scenery was great, especially once you got back into the forest. We... More

We loved Rockin R Rides 2 hour horse trip. We have a 7 and 10 year old and they loved it and we felt very safe. The staff were friendly and the horses were well cared for. The 2 hour trip is just long enough to take the horses up the side of the hill through beautiful terrain and back.... More
