Rocky Mountains on horseback

Riding through snow and the aspens. Your tour wasn't nose to nose trail ride, it was free and relaxing, the horses were wonderful (especially Denver)

Boyfriend and I wanted to go horseback riding in the snow. Found American Safari Ranch online and headed out from Denver. Easy to get to and a beautiful drive. The ranchers were wonderful and we had such a great time. The horses and scenery were beautiful and the best part is that rather than having to ride in a straight... More

The ATV Ride at the Ranch was awesome. A lot better than having to hike the mountains on foot. We drove over Hoosier pass and observed the open panoramic views of South Park. Upon our arrival we were amazed at all the open mountain land that was seen for miles.

My husband and I had a fabulous time horseback riding with Kevin. We were novices but Kevin made it so easy to adjust to riding. It was such beautiful scenery. The horses were so easy to ride. It was so nice to be able to ride in the open spaces. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a relaxing... More

I took my daughter and her friends riding for her 10th birthday. It was a wonderful experience. The horses were well mannered and appropriate levels, the girls loved them. Our guide was fun and the scenery was gorgeous! We will definitely go back again.

This was my first time riding and I was nervous. Kevin, our guide was amazing. He made me feel so comfortable and at ease. He gave us a ton of great information. I don't think my experience would be so good if it wasn't for him. The scenery was beautiful and it ended up being the highlight of my trip.... More

My son, husband and I decided to get the full Colorado experience and decided to go horseback riding on a ranch. American Safari was the perfect place. We rode into the beautiful mountains on a somewhat gloomy day. I was a bit nervous because I have not been on a horse in years. The staff could not have been kinder... More

Very nice guides, horses were great, scenery was awesome and we loved the whole experience. Kevin and Ryan were knowledgeable and I liked riding in the open, etc. We had Panda, Mustang, Dallas, Gypsy, Trigger, Heidi, and midnight and all were well behaved and easy to ride. Owner was nice to us.

First off, this is the first review I have EVER written. My 16 yr old son and I stayed in Breck for a week in the 3rd week of September and what a beautifull time of year that we chose - unbelievable! Aside from all the hiking we had done and planned to do, we couldn't wait to ride horses... More

We arrived with another couple and was greeted at the front. We got to meet our wrangler, Kevin and he was fantastic. My girlfriend has never rode before and he made her feel very comfortable from the start. We also got to ride abreast not nose to tail and it was awesome. I tend to push the envelope more and...
