ND Badlands at its best.

We're not experienced riders so I was pleased to see how careful the wranglers were in selecting just the right horse for the rider. If you have experience riding and want the freedom of going where you want this isn't for you but if you're looking for a relaxing ride through the rugged terrain around Medora, I would recommend you...

My son and I took a 1 hr ride. This was the first time riding horses for both of us. The horses were gentle, always walked and were a delight to ride. Our guide, Wendy was awesome. She made sure we were all comfortable and coming along ok. She told us about the things we were seeing. She was personable... More

We booked the day before and they were very organized when we got there. The person leading the trail ride was very knowledgable and personable. The were very accomodating when we asked if they would take pictures of us on our horses. The cost was reasonable.

This trail is a lot more rough than others I have been on. Lots of hills; however, gorgeous scenery. The horses are great and the guides superb. I am very sore though 2 day later. Just keep that in mind before you go. The guides were wonderful because after I got off my horse, due to the heat, I got... More

we ride at the stables everytime we visit Medora, The horses are well trained, and the guides are very friendly, the trails are nice and the views are beautiful. the only thing I would suggest they do differently is to get a mounting block, it would be so much easier on the horses back and guests too! I have rheumatoid... More

I am not a horse person. The last time I was on a horse was 30 years and 100 pounds (less) ago. The staff was awesome, helping hoist me up on a very gentle and agreeable horse. This was the one of the best hours spent in Medora in a long time. Friendly, helpful staff. Great horses. FUN!!!

We went on a 2 hour trail ride. The horses are very calm and fun to ride. The scenery was breath taking and we even rode amongst the black angus cattle that were grazing in the grasslands. The young trail guide from Minneapolis was very friendly and informative about Medora.

We did not ride the horses this go 'round, but we did approximately 5 years ago with our kids, and it was a blast! The guide was great in making sure we were humbly confident and that we stuck together. The path we took was serene! My daughter and I plan on doing this again next time we visit.
