The finest and the friendliest since 1962, Palo Duro Riding Stables is the longest running riding stable established in and around Palo Duro Canyon. One of the canyon's best kept secrets, come ride under some of the oldest and largest cottonwoods in the panhandle, water your horse from spring water coming right out of the canyon wall. Family owned and operated for over 50 years, our wranglers are knowledgeable and friendly, upholding true southern hospitality. The perfect opportunity to get together in the great outdoors, enhance your family vacation with a trail ride. No age limit! (Smaller children can ride with a parent. Some restrictions apply.) Don't forget to bring your camera!

Great personalized ride in a part of the canyon that is less-traveled than the state park and doesn't have all the hikers.

Awesome couple, awesome horses, awesome day. My kids (7,8,12) all had a blast. They were super helpful and accommodating, and the horses weren't all mindless drones. Highly recommend for families.
