My friend and I did a 2-hour guided trail ride and had a wonderful time. The ladies running the facility were very friendly and helpful, especially our tour group's leader, Dana, who had to take charge of my horse for a bit when he decided he wanted to just munch on grass rather than stay on the path :) We...

This was a great beginning to our South Dakota vacation. The guide was great and very patient with my two boys. This was their first time on a horse by themselves and they did great. Not a ton of stuff to see on the trail ride but overall the experience was perfect for my family.

We had the 2hours ride with a guide. The staff is super cool and friendly. The trail was nice in the forest and hills. The price is good compared with other places in the sector.

We did the 3.5 hour ride. The staff was great. The horses where well behaved and taken care of. The scenery is really good after we passed thru and past the highway. Viewed some nice bucks, lots of doe.

My wife and I took our 3 boys (13-8 years old) on this ride and they loved it. The path was plenty adventurous and had a good mix of terrain. We did the early ride and it was cool enough for two layers in the shade. The views from the horse in the black hills will be a great memory... More

We were recommended Rockin R's for a pony ride for our daughter who wanted to ride but was nervous of the horses. Turns out the pony was a full size horse and Peggy (the owner) put our daughter through her paces in the paddock for about 15 minutes teaching her the basics of riding a horse...all at no charge. After... More

Peggy did such a great job with our family's first horse riding experience. Our 7 year old was slightly scared at the beginning but Peggy made her feel so comfortable. She was knowledgeable about the local history, personable and we thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon at Rockin Rides.

We had a great time at the Rockin R. We took the 2 hour trail ride. Our guides, Kat and Sierra were awesome! They took into account whether people had riding experience and paired us up with the best horses. The ride was nice and slow and we got to see some wildlife. It was really nice to get out... More

Just got back from vacation in the Black Hills with my fiancé and horseback riding was the highlight of the trip for me! We called Peggy the day before to make last minute reservations. I am an experienced rider but it would be a first time ride for my fiancé. I called around a bit and could not find a... More
