We visited the stables with 2 children, ages 8 & 12. It doesn't look like much when you drive up but don't be fooled, it is awesome. Jesse told us a little history of himself and the stables and it didn't take long to figure out that it is his life. He grew up on the land with the canyon... More

We did a road trip from Chicago to LA and despite everything we did along our travels, when people as us what our favourite part was we tell them it was this! It really was an unforgettable experience. Neither of us have even been on a horse before but we were made to feel safe by Jesse and all the... More

I haven't done something so meaningful in a long time. The man that owns this land is rich in knowledge and has a heart of gold. If you're looking to catch an escape to a new world of worldliness this is perfect for you. Great event for anything meaningful!! Had such a great time!!

Enjoyable ride in a great setting. Jesse, Joey & Katie were friendly and helpful. Great to see Jesse keep up the tradition his father established. Highly recommended.

We took our Granddaughter to Palo Duro in June and we had a reservation for the stables in the canyon. We were 5 minutes late and they left us. We found this stable and they were so nice and worked us in. The horses were slow but in good shape. The ride was pretty and very informative. The guild Jesse... More

Reasonable rates and great folks who really know how to match rider to horse. Interesting trails with a gentle breeze and blooming cacti. Recommend this for the novice or more experienced riders. Will be coming back of a longer ride later. Hope to hear more about the canyon history.

We took our 5 year old grandson on his first horse back ride in Palo Duro Canyon. We had a great time. I highly recommend Jesse and the Palo Duro Riding Stables.

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.
