My kids and I had scheduled a horseback riding trip. While waiting for instructions my daughter got sick so her and I were unable to go on the ride. The owner was very nice and immediately returned our money. My son did go and enjoyed his ride. The next day all three of us returned and rode horses. My son... More

Nicely run operation three miles outside town off the highway. We signed up for a 90 minute expedition to take advantage of some of the additional switchbacks not available to those choosing the short duration tours. Horse mounting, dismounting, and handling instructions were well done, and slow pace of the actual rides made helmets pretty much unnecessary. The ride itself... More

Beautiful scenery, the two hour ride offered a nice perspective of the surrounding Black Hills. The ride itself is nose to tail but we expected nothing more actually. Seems that in the area there are no places where you can have anything else than a factorized stable where people are continuously loaded on and off horses. So if you can... More

Spectacular views mixed with some historical information. A great ride for youth and adults. Katie was a great Trailmaster.

Rode a 1.5 hour ride on a hot day. We got to see all the horses and all seemed well fed, shod and cared for. Staff were friendly and professional. We all enjoyed the view on the ride including Crazy Horse. My 9 year old is not a fan of horses and was happy to be riding Kitty the Equine... More

The staff were fantastic and very knowledgeable. My 11 year old and 7 year old daughters did the pony ride which was a horse than a pony. The staff took time with the girls, explaining to them on a mount, dismount, move the horse forward, left, right and reverse. They also provided "cowgirl" certificates at the end. Highly recommended.

My 11yo son and I did a one-hour ride. This was his first time on a horse, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The guides here are excellent. They know their horses very well and do a great job at matching horses with riders as well as determining the ordering of horses on the trail. This is a single-file... More

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
