My daughter and her teenaged daughters had a blast on this beautiful trail ride. One experienced, one novice, and one first time rider, all had the same amount of fun. They matched horses to riders well. Staff nice and helpful and safety minded! Would definitely recommend and do again.

With a first time rider (8 years old) and a couple adults who hadn't rode since childhood, we had a BLAST!!! The leaders were great and made us feel comfortable and prepared. The horses were well mannered and beautiful! The hour went so fast and we wished we would have done the 2 hour ride. Next time for sure!!! Highly... More

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 thought we were going on a nice trail ride - flat, not climbing a mountain on the edge of it. My husband is afraid of heights and this... More

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.

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.
