Durango Colorado Horse Boarding, Ranch Horses, Performance Horses, and Trail Horses

PERFORMANCE and RELIABILITY is what we breed our ranch raised performance and trail Quarter Horses for. Our goal is to produce the best all around, performing horse you can have. We also provide safe, reliable, and convenient overnight and long term horse boarding in the Durango, Colorado area. We are a small, family run business dedicated to horses. We are father and son, Terry Palmer and Randy Palmer. Our base of operation is the Palmer Quarter Horse Ranch on the Florida River which has been in our family since 1952. Three generations of Palmers work together to keep the herd of over 100 horses thriving. We pride ourselves on having the finest horses anywhere. What this means to you is an equine experience that is unequaled in both reliability and pleasure, and one that you will never forget.

Palmer Quarter Horses breeds, raises, uses and sells foundation bred performance and trail Quarter Horses and provides overnight and long term horse boarding near Durango, Colorado.

There are some who can live without wild things, and some who cannot.

Aldo Leopold

You can see what man made from the seat of an automobile.
But the best way to see what God made is from the back of a horse.

C.M. Russell

Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.

John Muir
