We had a wonderful morning on our 2 hour trail ride at Medora Riding Stables. I was impressed with how easily they worked to get us all saddled up and ready. We had two guides who kept us and our horses moving along. The scenery was amazing and we had a variety of it during the ride, including the National... More

Things started slow, I thought the ride would end up only a half hour or so but it was 60 minutes. I got a tall horse and as I was getting on the saddle slipped over a third way down side and it had to be tightened. Don't know if my horse was a bloater or not. I said my... More

Very good trail ride with great views and gentle horses. Sydney was our guide and she was interesting and informative. I thought this was a great way to see the Badlands. Exciting descent into the valley was especially memorable.

My niece & I did the 2 hour ride and had a great time. The horses were great and we saw some beautiful scenery. Our wranglers were both awesome also. I would definitely ride here again.

This is one of my favorite things to do in Medora. The horses are very calm, which makes for a great experience. The guides are excellent and friendly. I recommend going in the morning when it is cooler out. Very fun for the family!

My sister and I did the hour long trail ride and had the best time! We were paired with older horses which I was very happy about because we haven't been on a horse in like 26 years! Our horses were so good and stayed on the path. If I had to stop my horse he always listened to my... More

Our original ride was canceled due to rain the night before. They rescheduled us for the next morning. Pro- The horses knew their route well. They could be brought back to trail easily if they vear off (and they do). The people worked with us to find another time because we drove a long way. Cons- 1. They give you... More

We came from a long way away and were called about an hour before our trail ride that it was cancelled because it rained the night before. We drove by around an hour after the time our trail ride was scheduled and saw numerous people riding horse. I have no idea why the ride was really cancelled.

We visited the Medora area in July, 2016. We had been doing a lot of driving and needed a physical activity to do with the kids. This was a great experience. The employees were friendly and explained things well. They were able to match the horses together properly so they were friendly towards each other, to give the riders the... More

What a get experience we had riding horses with the Medora Riding Stables!! Everyone was very patient and helpful. My boyfriend and I are both inexperienced riders and are slightly overweight. The people made us feel very comfortable and confident in our abilities. We did the 2 hour ride and it was worth every penny. We rode through the Badlands... More
