We were recommended Rockin R's for a pony ride for our daughter who wanted to ride but was nervous of the horses. Turns out the pony was a full size horse and Peggy (the owner) put our daughter through her paces in the paddock for about 15 minutes teaching her the basics of riding a horse...all at no charge. After... More

Peggy did such a great job with our family's first horse riding experience. Our 7 year old was slightly scared at the beginning but Peggy made her feel so comfortable. She was knowledgeable about the local history, personable and we thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon at Rockin Rides.

We had a great time at the Rockin R. We took the 2 hour trail ride. Our guides, Kat and Sierra were awesome! They took into account whether people had riding experience and paired us up with the best horses. The ride was nice and slow and we got to see some wildlife. It was really nice to get out... More

Just got back from vacation in the Black Hills with my fiancé and horseback riding was the highlight of the trip for me! We called Peggy the day before to make last minute reservations. I am an experienced rider but it would be a first time ride for my fiancé. I called around a bit and could not find a... More

If you reserve a two hour ride you get to go up into the woods on the mountainside. It feels like an adventure as the horses weave through the the trees up and down the rocky path. But it is also quiet and relaxing. The scenery approaching the hills is so beautiful. Deer stopped to watch us as we rode... More

Staff is very welcoming and friendly. Horses are very well trained. Children must wear helmets, adults have a choice. Price is great for the experience

There were 19 of us total from our family reunion. We all had a wonderful experience. We had three experienced riders guiding us along the way, they were knowledgeable, friendly and courteous to every rider in our group. The children wore helmets with no issues and the rest of us signed a waiver for no helmets, not a problem! We... More

Daughters are not really horseback riders since they only get to go once a year but the staff carefully picks horses appropriate to the rider. Two trail guides for a party of 6. Because of summer thundershowers they could only do a 1 hour ride but I'd recommend the 1.5 hour so that they can take you higher and you... More

Our trip was an hour ride with Maya as our guide. She was tremendous! My two teenage kids have a bit of experience riding horses while my husband and I have very little recent experience. She was great with all of us. The trail was scenic in the Black Hills National Forest and I got to bring along my camera... More
