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

We had a small group of adults of varying riding experience and all had a wonderful time on our ride into the canyon. The horses are well cared for and were well chosen for each rider and we had three guides with us. The owner came along with us and was a delightful guide as he shared stories of his... More

The guides were super friendly and knowledgeable. The horses were very gentle. The landscape was incredible. The owners put their hearts into this business and it shows. I highly recommend you take a ride and meet Jesse and horses.

We try to ride just about every where we go, and Palo Duro canyon was no exception ! What a treat ! Great horses, and the sweetest little "wrangler" who is a student at WTAMU in Canyon. We were all treated very well by the entire staff, and it was obvious that this outfit took great care of their animals.... More

What a great time! The owners treat you like family, in fact they brought along their 1 year old for the ride. She was precious. The trail stories were down to earth, and funny too. Much prefer this stable to the other in the park. Gotta go if your in the area

Wow. I am a Canadian ranch owner and rider myself. I could really appreciate the quality of the outfit. I was very impressed with the love of the land, the knowledge of the animals and the care for the environment that Jesse, the owner had. I wanted to see the landscape from the back of a horse so decided what... More
