Horseback Trail Rides in the Black Hills

Categories // Connections

Looking for a great way to see the beautiful Black Hills? How about from the saddle?

Horseback Trail Rides in the Black Hills

The Black Hills of South Dakota are not only known for their pristine beauty, but also their history. In the late 1800s, pioneers and prospectors from the eastern U.S. settled in the Black Hills, with high hopes of striking it rich in the gold rush of 1876-77. This lead to clashes with the native Sioux tribes, who consider the land sacred to this day. Towns like Deadwood, Hill City and Custer are chock-full of all sorts of Old West history and landmarks.

Although times have obviously changed, you can still experience the same trails they did in the old west…on horseback! This week, we’re going to give you some of the best horseback trail ride barns in the Black Hills, so you can experience this unique adventure with the whole family. Most all the Forest Service roads and trails in the Black Hills are open to horses, but some require a user fee. For the purpose of this post, we’re recommending guided tours.
