My husband and I were staying in Breckenridge over Memorial Day weekend with his parents, brother and cousin. We've all been riding before, although our individual skill levels were a bit different. When we arrived we were greeted by very encouraging and friendly staff and set up on horses to match each of our skill levels. We had a private... More

We had a wonderful morning of riding with American Safari Ranch! We had made reservations this morning for our kids only, but when we got there, we changed our mind. The ranch is set up like an old western town, so it was really cute, and the staff as extremely friendly and encouraging. Adam was our guide and he did... More

After spending a couple of days on the ski slopes in Breckenridge, my family decided to do something different. We ended up going on a 2 hour horseback ride at the American Safari Ranch in Fairplay, CO. Adam was our guide and thanks to him and his wonderful cowboy personality we had an absolutely fantastic time. The ranch is just... More

Five of us girls went to the Ranch in mid January to ride! Adam our guide was so much fun! They matched our riding abilities to our horses and they did a perfect match for all of us. My sister Betsy was the least experienced, so they put her on Babe. Well, Babe decided she would be calm for Betsy...... More

Horseback riding was at American Safari Ranch was excellent. Unlike other horseback riding trips you actually get to ride your horse and not just have your horse follow the guide's horse, so you are actually riding side by side instead of a line. Views were amazing also and Adam was a great guide.

Horseback riding at American Safari Ranch is awesome experience. I can really recommend to everyone. Nice views, calm horses and helpful guide Adam who made our ride really amusing. I tried also ATVs and it is great fun too.

Went horseback riding on Thanksgiving day and it could not have been better. The landscape is incredible, and Adam was a lovely and charming host. Highly recommend.

We visited Denver from Minnesota and thought the mountains looked amazing when we visited them in Boulder, CO but the drive to Safari Ranch was by far the most beautiful drive ever. You drive through the mountains for about an hour and it is unbelievable. Once we got to the Ranch it was so quiet and peaceful. I was a... More
