In the summer of 2015, my husband,12 year old son, and I planned a ride while vacationing in the area. Unfortunately, due to slight altitude sickness (flew in from Ohio), our son didn't feel up to going. Thankfully, a few of the younger ranch hands offered to hang out and show him how to lasso while keeping in contact with... More

Extremely well cared for ranch and horses. Holly and Dave are caring owners who really offer a riding experience, not just a few laps around the yard. Educational ride and a gorgeous trail

My boyfriend and I drove from South Carolina to Souh Dakota to visit some friends and we both decided to find a place to ride horses sometime during our stay. We obviously chose Sage Meadow and it was the best choice we made! Holly was so friendly and helpful. I have some riding experience but my boyfriend did not. She... More

Call and schedule a ride with Holly. First thing to notice is that this is a first class operation. It's not a volume tourist destination,and it's a place for personable personal service. Holly is first class, safe and caring for her horses. We've done vacation rides and found ourselves more than once riding around old ponies in someone's back yard.... More

We did the three hour ride and were the first ones out this year. It was an amazing experience! Holly and Dave were great with instructing us and telling us how to improve our riding.

Holly was great and the horses were wonderful. We opted for the 3-hour ride and we really enjoyed ourselves. The horses are sweet and well-trained and we enjoyed having the chance to ride in such a beautiful place.

Sage Meadow Ranch is a very special place. Holly and Dave are amazing! The horses were so gentle and full of personality. We are beginners and Holly made us feel so comfortable. My son said it was an experience that he will remember for the rest of his life (This was his first time on a horse) The scenery was... More

This is not your typical tourist horseback ride. This is an authentic horse riding experience that will remind you of any old western TV show you've watched (minus the outlaws). Holly does a great job of instructing and preparing you for the ride. The adventure takes you through beautiful meadows, trees, peaks and valleys. If you want the real deal,... More

I will be back here again for sure. I would strongly recommend this if you like creating lasting memories. This is no run of the mill tourist operation, you are in your own group and that's it! Holly took care of us and was flexible on times to accommodate weather. We had a couple of hours riding though stunning countryside,... More
