We had a wonderful 2-week stay at Bridle Ridge! Sheri and Dave, and the camp hosts, were so friendly and helpful. We had no trouble getting our Class A in there. The trails were great right out of the campground. We enjoyed the stalls and all the wonderful hospitality. Thanks so much! We’ll see you again next time!

I love Bridle Ridge! Not only is it a clean friendly horse camp but it’s secluded in the ponderosa pines away from civilization, but only 15 min from Custer. I love the high country setting and privacy here. Definitely will be back and the riding is amazing!
