I don't think we could've found a better place to ride in the Black Hills! Holly and her horses were absolutely wonderful. She takes great care of them and it shows in the horse's calm and content mannerisms. Each horse had their own personality which made for a fun and memorable ride. The trails take you through lovely South Dakota... More

This is one of the best horseback riding experiences I have ever had. It is not your typical nose-to-tail ride. Holly is wonderful, and the scenery is spectacular. The horses are fun, and matched to your riding ability. Would definitely do it again!! Paul and Jean, Minnesota

I am on a 3 week road trip around four corners and was looking to do a trail ride through the Black Hills. I founds Sage Meadow Ranch through trip advisor and emailed Holly to see if I could ride on the day that I wished before leaving the UK. Holly was very accommodating and despite being the only rider... More

My wife and I were very excited to go horseback riding in the Black Hills. This was an awesome experience. My horse Pedro and my wife's horse Amarillo were great. Holly was very friendly and gave us a personalized ride. The scenery was beautiful even if it was a little chilly out. Thank you

My 13 and 14 year old daughters absolutely LOVED this ride! The independence that Holly and Dave offer is perfect for their age! I would recommend this amazing ride to everyone. Holly and Dave's property is home to hundreds of raw acreage and the personal attention is second to none. Unlike most nose to tail trail rides, we were allowed... More

Holly is a natural guide and her horses are well-trained to give you a great Black Hills experience. It is obvious that the horses are loved and nurtured. This is a great southern hills destination for awe inspiring vistas and canyons. Holly keeps it personal so you won't share the experience with a large group. We had a beautiful ride... More

I had the pleasure of riding with a close friend, who owns a neighbouring ranch, on Holly's reliable and footsure quarter horses over two days at the end of October 2014. As a change from the normal hacking I do regularly in the U.K. it was a relaxing way to view the very dramatic scenery, whilst exploring deep canyons and... More

My husband and I took a wonderful, privately guided 3 hour horseback ride through hundreds of acres of beautiful South Dakota land! We traversed trails, dry creek beds, woods and open plains with views as far as Wyoming and Nebraska! The owner and guide, Holly, was very knowledgeable, safe and fun to ride with, and her sweet horses were very... More

This place is about 1 1/2 hours away from Rapid City, 30 minutes from either Custer or Hot Springs. If you follow Holly's directions on the website, you will not get lost. Take notice of your surroundings though. Once you turn at the Firehouse, the road to Sage Meadow is all gravel. My Husband and I took 79 south from... More

Visiting Custer State Park I could not do the nose to tail trail ride. My friend had only been on a horse once and I am a rider. We had a fantastic ride. My friend had a great "riding lesson" while enjoying the ride and I just rode like a trail ride I have always done. It was like being... More
