    Trail, Wagon Rides & Horse Camps

    Gentle horses. Expert guides. Great scenery.

Gentle horses. Expert guides and wranglers. Great scenery. They add up to Trail Ride, a great way for amateur (even never-ever) horsemen to enjoy being a cowboy in the great outdoors.

In the Black Hills and Badlands, there are a number of outfits that offer horseback excursions. You can choose from rides that last one-half-hour, one hour, two hours, half-day or full day. A one-hour ride is generally plenty for a greenhorn with a tender butt, and you can expect to pay around $30 to $45 for your hour-long adventure.

All riding skill levels are welcome. and you'll get a quick briefing and instructions on how to start, stop and steer your mount.
