     Horesback riding is one of the most popular pastimes in the Black Hills. Throughout the hills there are more than a dozen riding outfitters where you can rent horses or join riding tours. Organized rides are generally of one or two hours, half days, or all days. Prices tend to land in the the $20 per hour range. Or $140 for an all-day ride. (2006 rates)

     The Keystone Stables, on Highway 16A about three miles north of the Roosevelt Inn is the closest riding stable. Holy Smoke stables are nearby. There are numerous others near Custer and Hill City. Black Hills Horseback Riding

     Many of the trails operated maintained by the US Forest Service are open to horseback riding. In fact, nearly all of the trails near Keystone (Cathedral Spires, Sunday Gulch and Harney Peak are the exceptions) are open for horses.  Also, most Black Hills Forest service roads are open for horseback riders as well as the Buffalo Gap National Grasslands.

     Additionally, virtually all of the Forest Service roads are suitable for riding.

     The National Forest Service has two campgrounds set aside for campers with horses. They are administered by a private company, Forest Recreation Management which handles bookings.

     More information about trails and horses can be found at travelinghorses.com and
from the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department.
