Guided Horseback Trail Riding

Headquartered in the Little Missouri State Park just off Highway 22 north
of Killdeer, we are ready to guide you through 6000 acres of rugged badlands
on a western adventure. 



At Badlands Trail Rides we have been "living the dream" for over 45 years. But unfortunately this dream has come to an end. We are no longer offering guided horseback riding through the majestic southwestern North Dakota badlands at Little Missouri State Park.

To all our loyal customers over these past many years we want to say thank you for your business. We appreciated the oppotunity to get to know you. To the many of you that brought your children and then your grandchildren over the years, we feel honored to have watched your families grow, and be a part of that. To all the military, church, youth and adult groups that have come time and again, please know it also has been our pleasure to share the experience with you. We are so grateful to all of you. You enriched our lives and we hope we enriched yours.

The memories we have will hopefully fill the void we are now experiencing. We hope in the future to put together our memories of this "amazing ride" we've been on for so many years. So if you are compelled to share a story or a photo with us that would be amazing. Anything you wish to share can be sent via e-mail or snail mail.

Again, thank you for allowing us to "live our dream".
