Views of the Snow Covered La Plata Mountains on the 2-hour Ranch Ride.
Over the Hill Outfitters offers 1-hour and 2-hour horseback rides near Durango, Colorado on the 1000 acres of the Palmer Quarter Horse Ranch which saddles the Florida River east of town. We have a ride that is perfect for you.
If you’re looking for the ultimate western experience, join us on our two hour horseback ride which travels through the Gambel Oak and Ponderosa Pine foothills and (if the weather permits) climaxes with a 360 degree view at 8135 feet. From there you’ll appreciate a gorgeous view of the Durango area and the La Plata Mountains.
Our one hour horseback ride is for those with less time who still want to experience the magnificent forest land of Durango. There are incredible views of the Palmer Quarter Horse ranch as we crest the ridge that is composed of the geologic layers making up the northern end of the San Juan Basin.
Our rides are not flat! We ride through valleys, up mountains, over ridges and all of our rides end up in the riparian area of the Florida River, which passes through the ranch. If the river is not too high, we ride across the Florida, allowing the horses to drink and cool off.
