Jesse and crew have a very nice operation. Professional, but laid back at the same time. Very personable, and they take you into a different part of the canyon than you'll see in the state park. Well-mannered horses, good for any level of experience. Would definitely ride with them again.

We were staying in Palo Duro Canyon for Spring Break, and prior to the trip I contacted the riding stables in the state park and PDRS down the road from the park. The phone contact with Kristin had me sold before I even got a call back from the other riding stable. She was personable, patient, and kind and did... More

I would recommend stopping in for a ride. The people are so kind and knowledgable about the canyon. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. They are located a mile before the state park on the right-hand side!

This was our third time visiting and due to a scheduling snafu on my part, which was no fault of Jessie and crew BTW, what I thought was our original time was booked solid. But Jessie did us right and worked us in at the end of the day. He and Noah are so good with our little 4 year... More

My husband and I took our son and his girlfriend for his 22nd birthday. Everyone in the party had different levels of experience with riding. My son had never even sat on a horse. Jessie and his family hooked us up with a horse perfect for each of us. Very well mannered and tempered. We had a wonderful time and... More

If you happen to be in this part of our BEAUTIFUL country, this is a MUST! Camping in the State Park is one thing but if you want the "real feel" Go see Jesse and Kristin Sorenson at the Palo Duro Riding Stables. Family owned for YEARS and they treat you like FAMILY! Their knowledge and expertise is nothing but... More

The Sorensons's own a different piece of the canyon than the state park. This fact makes it a great idea to chose them over the stables inside the park itself. Jesse and his wife were very helpful, as were the other young men who rode in our group. The ride was an hour into the canyon and back up to... More

My family of five had a wonderful time. The horses are so well behaved that even my five year old was able to ride solo. Jesse, Noah, Dallas, and Kristen were beyond kind and accommodating! I can't see why anyone would have something negative to say! You just cant make some people happy I guess.

My husband, son and I were fortunate to spend time with Jesse and his family horseback riding in the beautiful Palo Duro Canyon! Jesse, Kristin and the trail guides made us feel welcome and comfortable on their family land. We will definitely go back this fall! I highly recommend anyone visiting Palo Duro Canyon to add a hosreback riding trip... More

My husband and two daughters, ages 17 and 13 decided to do this on a one day trip to Amarillo and it was the highlght for sure! We are total novices on horses having only limited riding experience. The horses were just right for our ability level. The canyon is amazing and Jesse made it great. He is personable and... More
