Highlights of South Dakota's Black Hills and Badlands
Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary
Explore the southern part of South Dakota's Black Hills on guided tours of the 11,000-acre Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary, home to more than 500 mustangs and other horses (14 miles south of Hot Springs). Tours are pricey but help support expenses for the nonprofit group. Even non-horsey types should enjoy the panoramic views as well as information about native plants, petroglyphs and ranch life. Check the website for information on different tours available; we enjoyed the three-hour tour with a private guide (and air-conditioned vehicle!) (800/252-6652; wildmustangs.com).
