Wonderful day at a great place. Great horses, great wranglers, nice owners and NO nose to tail riding. Open range, beautiful Fall colors, reasonable priced 2 hour ride ($65), including brats and beans for lunch. We had a GREAT time.

This place is awesome! I enjoyed the two hours of open mountain horseback riding for such a great price! I had called the other stables in town and found American Safari had the best deals in the area. It was great customer service too. I would definitely recommend this place!

American Safari offers non-trail rides, so you better know how to ride a horse. This location offers large group rides, though, personally, I like smaller ones. Horses were clean, but variety of stirrups for shorter people can be improved. If forests an plains are good enough for you, this is the place. If you need something more, like ruins, cemeteries,...

I have ridden at many stables across the states. Literally from one end of the country to the other. From my experience, this is hands down the best ride. As you look at other reviews, you'll see that most (if not all) negative reviews are just about the initial phone call, not about the actual ride. I didn't get it... More

This was the best horseback ride our family has ever had. The staff was great, and the ride in the open range is SOOOOO much better than the in-line nose to butt rides you see other places. We had 8 people and one was on his first ride. The staff was great with everyone.

My friend Dennis and I had a great time riding the horses and the ATV. WHAT A BLAST! Our guide was excellent! Can't wait to go back again next summer. My friend is from California and I'm from Tennessee so Denver is the perfect meeting place to enjoy the outdoors. Thanks again American Safari for making our vacation a GREAT... More

I have to say, I cannot get enough of American Safari Ranch, Stan, Jay and the entire crew. Every time I visit the ranch I am in awe of the peacefulness and beauty of the open spaces. Not to mention, they keep my days full with ATV and Horseback rides. Plus, they have great food! As a Coloradan, I can... More

The staff at American Safari Ranch did a first rate job in providing a memorable trail ride. Stan and his wife provide an excellent experience for the novice to skilled rider. Aaron was a wonderfully entertaining guide. He knew a lot about each horse and was very knowledgable in giving guidance. The Aspens are starting to turn and it was... More

A dream come true horseback ride in the mountains! I went on this ride in the fall so the leaves were changing. It was a 360 degree picturesque backdrop. The staff provided safety instruction and tips on guiding your horse. We had experienced to beginner riders in our group and it was fun for all. Aaron was a great guide!... More

A beautiful drive from Breckenridge. Took my 12 year old granddaughter who had only been on a horse once and that was a boring "nose to tail" trail ride. The first day a storm rolled in after about 20 minutes on the horses. We had to return to the stables but we were told to come back the following morning.... More
