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

I took my two young children for their first horseback riding experience and they loved it! Most importantly though, they were safe! The staff did a wonderful job teaching the kids and talking to them before and during the ride to ensure safety. We also had a private ride with just our family which is so nice since most trail...

This was a very fun experience. We were a little disappointed at first because we didn't know it was a guided trip. We are pretty experienced and wanted to go off on our own but it turned out to be fun anyway. Our guide, didn't catch her name but she had an English accent (I think), was very friendly and... More

It is so hard to find a place to ride horses that isn't a "nose to tail" trail ride!! This place was so worth it!!!! Beautiful scenery, friendly staff, and amazingly well trained horses! We had a large group of 11 and the majority of the riders were beginners. The staff was very good about matching the riders with the... More

We would definitely recommend the horseback riding at American Safari Ranch. We are experienced riders but currently only have 1 horse at home so we cannot ride together. We went here for our daughters 13th birthday because for her birthday she wanted our family to all be able to ride together on a trail. We were assigned our own guide... More

We have been to several riding places in Park County. This is a nice comprehensive place. The owner is a bit of a curmudgeon but other than that it's a beautiful place and the guides were very nice. It was a fun ride but not for anyone who is a good rider- great for beginners. Kids had fun!

This was my second time to go to American Safari Ranch and horseback ride on their ranch! GREAT place, fabulous Horse Guide, Lottie, made our ride interesting and fun. The horses are all well taken care of and easy going. Thanks Stan (owner) for another great ride on your ranch!

We just visited this private ranch for a fun morning of ATV riding for the whole family. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful guide that took us all over the ranch. Our boys ages range from 12-19 and everyone loved it. The scenery was beautiful and peaceful. We were even fed lunch afterwards. I highly... More

So off the beaten path, and off CO 285 about one mile, you will find one of the best places to take your friends and family if you are ever in Fairplay Colorado. The owners and staff are as friendly as can be, and take you on as excursion you won't soon forget. My small group of people rode horses... More

Me and my family we had a ride on horseback and ATV. It was a great experience. The staff were very helpful and we had lots of fun! Ranch environment is really beautiful and in style. ATV ride was more adrenaline, but not to worry. Weather was great and the kids are talking about repeat it again as soon as... More
