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

We went on an 1 1/2 hr horseback ride and wish we would have booked for longer! Great horses and beautiful scenery. Adam rode with us -- super nice guy and great with our kids (ages 11, 13, 14). Well worth the time and money. We will be back and will bring visitors here too!!

We were in the Breckenridge area in what appeared to be the off-season for a lot of area businesses, and wanted to include a horseback ride in our trip - we were so pleased to find that American Safari ranch was open for riding year-round! We went out for a two hour ride in the morning before any bad weather... More
