Family Owned since 1962 Family owned and operated since 1962, PDRS is not your average horse tour and trail ride, it's an experience. Observe a completely different part of Palo Duro Canyon that is only offered to the public on the back of a horse. Whether you're an experienced rider or a "tender foot", PDRS is sure to show you a great time as they open their backyard to you and your family.
Weather permitting, we are OPEN YEAR ROUND!!! Especially in the off season, we are only open by reservation. If there are not any rides on the books, maintenance is generally planned for the day, so same day reservations are hard to come by. All reservations are made by phone.
MILES OF SHADED TRAILS IN THE CANYON Ride into the old west with cowboys and cowgirls, underneath some of the oldest and largest cottonwood trees in the panhandle, pass by spring water coming right out of the canyon wall providing a creek almost all year round. With more trees per acre than just about anywhere in the entire canyon, late morning and, occasionally, midday rides can be quite comfortable. Backpacks and bags are discouraged as we ride in a very wooded area. Saddle bags for water, cameras, and phones are provided at no extra cost to you, the guest.
MEET THE OWNER: Jesse Sorenson is 3rd generation here at PDRS. Growing up in the saddle with a gun on his hip, Jesse spent his childhood entertaining folks from all over the world. Many of the horses in the PDRS herd are direct descendants from the horses that Jesse rode as a kid. Jesse is married to Kristin (you'll probably talk to her when you call for a reservation), and 40 feet from where he grew up, they are raising their daughter, Kodi Jo.
