Much more then what I expected. The road on the way in is worth the trip. There is a large group of horses on your way in.

Glad we took the 3 hour private tour. Learned so much about how the place started, got close to so many horses, and learn alot about the property. To know that they are still saving horses from both slaughter and being kept in feed lots was gratifying.

We have visited the Sanctuary years ago and decided to come back to see any changes.. The horse I sponsor is ow 22 years old and looks years younger. People from all over the world travel to South Dakota to see these herds rescued from the wild west. I am always amazed at how healthy they are living wild on over 11,000 acres. The tour is well worth the fee of $50 and lasts over 2 hours. You will not only go out onto the prairie searching for the different herds but get a lesson in the many other plants and animals that reside there. There are old movie sets and cliffs with petroglyphs carved over the ages. The gift shop offers many souvenirs and sponsorship packages for many of the horses you will see on the tour. This is a non profit organization and does not receive any government funds for support.

Our tour guide, Mike, a former history teacher, was top-notch! We saw plenty of horses. At one point we exited the bus and a whole herd of paints came up to check us out. We not only learned about the sanctuary and the horses, but a history of the land as well. All of the staff was very friendly. It was a bit of a drive from our base in Rapid City but well worth the time and money. Highly recommended.

My twelve year old daughter wanted to stop here while in the Black Hills. Thankfully I read some reviews and knew about the cost of tours and didn't show up with all seven of us which would have put it out of our budget! I booked the regular two hour tour for the two of us and we had a great time. Our tour guide Mike was very informative and we learned a lot of history about the area and the horses. I was surprised that my daughter was just as fascinated with the history of the petroglyphs and Sun Dance site and when the pintos walked over to check us out and one sniffed her hair. The journey was complete.
