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

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!

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
