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.

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...
