  • Took the 3 hour tour yesterday and my driver was Rick. Very knowledgeable regarding the horses, sanctuary and history of the area. Would definitely do this again if I have the chance to return to the area. Wish my daughter and granddaughter could have been there as well. The animals are beautiful and obviously loved and cared for. Thanks for a great time
  • i don't give many 5 stars. this place is AWESOME, AMAZING and FANTASTIC. skip the desecrated heads on "rushmore" and head here. take a few hours out and see some real history, integrity and sacred treatment of the horses and land. do NOT miss this place. really. SKIP rushmore and head HERE!!!
  • WOW is all i can say. What a great experience. My family bought 2 mustangs from here. What a wonderful origination.
  • If you love horse, this is the most incredible place I have ever visited. God bless all those who operate it and also Dayton O. Hyde it's creator.
  • A must visit in South Dakota! Fantastic group of devoted horse lovers working really hard to protect one of America's most important treasures. My eyes were opened to not just the beauty of wild horses but also to the sad truth they are disappearing very quickly in the wild. This sanctuary is so important for education about and protection for these amazing animals.
