Palo Duro Riding Stables was a first horseback riding experience for our 7 year old daughter and her best friend. I wasn't sure how they'd do riding down into the canyon, but everything was perfect. Everyone we interacted with was kind, knowledgeable, and patient. The ride was beautiful and peaceful, and the girls left their hearts with their horses. I... More

There were 6 adults in our party with different levels of riding experience (and the 3 guides that went on the ride with us). It seemed like they put some thought into pairing each horse with each rider. The horses they picked for us were all very gentle and sweet, but not old and worn out like some trail-riding places...

As you read all the reviews, you must start to wonder, "can they really please all those people?" The answer is decidedly YES! When you have the combination of the Sorenson's rich family heritage and love of their canyon, wonderful scenery, well cared for and clearly happy, healthy and loved horses that are trained for all levels of riders, and...

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!!

They interact with you while you're riding. Well mannered horses and the scenery is Beautiful! This is trail walking at it's Best! Enjoy this before or after touring the canyon. Very,... More

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
