What Our Clients Say

“Durango Horse Boarding delivers excellent service.  For over 20 years I’ve had peace of mind when boarding my horses with Denney Schilthuis and his family.  They have great facilities and deliver cowboy hospitality.   They have earned my highest recommendation!”

-  Jason – Waterloo, IL


“Boarding your horses with Denney Schilthuis at his Mesa-top ranch is a treat for both you and your animals! For the horse owner the ranch has easy to access from either highway 172 or 550 just a few miles from Durango, and the relaxing rural atmosphere and breathtaking views of the La Plata Mountains make you know you are in one of Colorado’s special places!  Pens for the horses are spacious and partially sheltered, and there is a large pasture available for more exercise. Plenty of parking is also available for trailers.

Denney has been a horseman all his life and he will care for your horses as if they were his own.  You will know that your horse is being provided outstanding care, excellent feed and hay, and that his knowledge gained over many years in the business will benefit both you and your horse. And you should be sure to take some time to relax and chat – you are guaranteed to hear some great stories!”

–  John – Durango CO


“I have used Denny’s facilities for over 20 years – sometimes for just a few hours to stretch the legs and sometimes for days to explore the country.  Over the years Denny has helped us with horse issues, trailer issues and always knows a great trail to go for a ride.  His place is close to Durango and the Durango airport, and the views from his ranch are beautiful day and night. ”
