One Hour, Two Hour & Three Hour Horseback Rides…
“15 Minutes From Durango– Far From the Highway”

Views of the Snow Covered La Plata Mountains on the 2-hour Ranch Ride.

Over the Hill Outfitters offers 1-hour,  2-hour and 3-hour horseback rides in Durango, Colorado on the 1000 acres of the Palmer Quarter Horse Ranch on the Florida River just 7 miles 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 pinyon and Ponderosa pine foothills and (if the weather permits) reaches Rincon Ridge Saddle, which has magnificent views of the gorgeous San Juan Mountains and La Plata Mountains and views into the Florida River Valley.

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, the Florida River valley and the La Plata mountains.  You’ll ride very pretty tree covered swales and ridges as we crest geologic layers making up the northern end of the San Juan Basin.

If you want a longer ride, our three-hour horseback ride covers some of the longer and slightly more adventurous trails on the ranch and climaxes with a 360 degree view at the 8135 feet high Vista Grande Point. From there you’ll appreciate a gorgeous view of the Durango area, the San Juan and La Plata Mountains and to the south you can see into New Mexico.

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.
