Horseback riding.

My wife and I love coming out to Medora, and every time we do we try to go horseback riding. We had a great guide and the trails were in great shape.

They do not qualify their riders, and their tack is old - belly cinch would not even stay tight on the rider in front. Never once asked if afraid of heights.

We rode with our girls, ages 9 and 12. None of us have much riding experience but that wasn't a problem. We arrived 15 min early and each of us was fitted for a horse. The girls had to wear a helmet, required for 12 and under. The guides took us out on a 1 hour ride and we enjoyed... More

We had a wonderful leader named Chelsea. She was very friendly and very good to the horses. I would recommend this activity as a great way to really understand the roughness of the park.

Took my 9-year old grandson for his first riding experience. The staff was friendly and helpful and helped him overcome his anxiety. His mount was a stolid as could be wished and he had a great time. We live in Missouri and I'm trying to figure out how to bring the rest of my grandkids here.

Friendly and helpful staff, beautiful scenery. A great activity if you are in the area. We are not experienced riders and felt comfortable because of the staff. Our 7 year old was nervous about it but now wants to ride horses-- all the time.

We went on Saturday 9AM June 13, 2015 a two hour trail ride. Matt was one of the two guides and he was fantastic! The scenery is beautiful above Medora and Matt's stories were wonderful and to hear about the horses and ride them and see some of the same ones in the Musical the previous night is awesome. Next...

I thoroughly enjoyed my hour trail ride with fantastic views! The horses were beautiful and well cared for. Wish I would have gone for the 2 hour ride. I didn't want to get off!

It was my first time on a horse and it was a great experience. We did the one hour ride and it was the perfect amount of time.
