My daughter (11) and I went riding with Barbara Jean and had a wonderful time. We have limited riding experience and she matched us to the perfect horses for each of us. She had us up and riding through her beautiful property and even gave us historical and current facts and information on the area. We especially enjoyed the view... More

I wish to comment on the person who stated in July his/her concern re the trespass signs etc on the road to Barbara Jean's place. I appreciate where a person might be nervous, however she is totally above board - owns the land where the ride is - she has a crazy neighbor who posts this stuff. Pls pls go... More

So, i'm not comfortable going by all these 'no trespassing' signs...and riding on other people's property. Is the insurance any good also? Interesting that all of these reviews have the same language used with the same sort of comments

We had an amazing time with Barbara Jean horseback riding through the Black Hills! She carefully chose each horse based on our experience, or lack of experience... lol, to make sure we all had a great time. We loved her down to earth attitude, the history she shared, and the stories based on us! What fun! I would highly recommend... More

We were traveling with children ages 6 and 9. Barbara Jean was so wonderful with the children. We chose the children's experience instead of the trail. The kids were able to brush the horses, learn about safety/general facts, and ride around the flat land. I would recommend this experience for young riders interested in animals.

We took our children, ages 7,9,11, and12 , on their first ever ride with Barbara Jean and I have to say it was a wonderful experience. From our first phone call she asked our riding level so she could pair us with the right horse. My younger 2 children were lead by someone on foot which made me feel a... More

This was the most fun we had on our entire trip. I cannot say enough good things about the entire experience. Barbara Jean runs a top notch business and it is evident she enjoys this very much. Her enthusiasm is infectious. My 12 year old grand son and I went together. He had never ridden before and I had not... More

This was one of the best times of our stay in South Dakota. Barbara Jean, and her help were so patient with us. Took their time with us. Lucky we were the only one's that showed up for the tour. Just beautiful, a great experience, and a must do and see. Lester and Diana Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Had a great time riding with BarbaraJean ! My son age 10 had never ridden before and she had him paired up with the perfect horse, Shadow. He loved it and now wants to ride again. The trail seemed steep at times, but the horses were at home, so we felt comfortable. BarbaraJean is a genuine, down to earth kind... More
