This unassuming looking business put on one great trail ride! 78, 63 (the only non tenderfoot), 42, 8, and 5. They had the perfect mount for each of us. The guides were all friendly, engaging, knowlegable, and informative. The trail had many steep spots, but the horses were surefooted and well behaved. Not unlively or worn out, they were all...

They went above and beyond helping us schedule a ride during our trip! Twice our ride was cancelled due to severe thunderstorms at night which made riding the trails dangerous! They were booked for the next 2 days, and just when we thought riding wasn't going to be a part of our trip, they scheduled us on Sunday so that... More

This is a family owned business who make you feel like family! They told many interesting stories about their business and their land. I had very little experience with horseback riding but they made me feel comfortable and confident. I rode Lilly...she's a fun horse with lots of personality and didn't mind a novice. We would do this again

These stables were great. It's a small, family run operation and the owners treat you like friends, the horses are well taken care of, the trails are beautiful and somewhat shaded, and they really try to match rider to horse. They explained so much of the history and made the ride interesting. They even stopped in a picturesque area and... More

From the moment my grandson and I were greeted at the stables, we felt welcomed and confident we were in for a memorable experience, but we had no idea just how memorable the ride would prove to be. The horses were in excellent condition, and Jesse and the two lovely wranglers took great care in matching horses with riders. The... More

Great ride! We could tell they cared about the guests and the animals. The guide was friendly and shared about his family's history. It was neat hearing how the love passed from one generation to the next. Just hearing the stories while we rode horseback made it such a rich authentic experience. Worth checking it out!

Can't speak highly enough of our experience at Palo Duro Riding Stables - the staff were warm and friendly when we booked over the phone, and were absolutely wonderful on the day. Friendly, chatty, and great with the horses, who were all clearly very well taken care of. We don't have much riding experience but felt comfortable the whole way... More

Found this gem 20 years ago as we drove past on the way to Palo Duro Canyon. My wife and two small boys had a great time- most enjoyable trail ride I've experienced, guided by an older gentleman. Now we have a daughter and wanted to show her the canyon. I was pleasantly surprised to find this place still in... More
