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

Our Trip to Colorado started out with a Mid 40's couple just looking to enjoy each others company...and pretty much ended with this awesome 2 hour ride in the snow-covered mountains. Stan, our original contact with the Ranch, was very inviting, provided lots of information and tips for riding, especially for those of us that are less experienced. Stan put... More

American Safari Ranch is a real dude ranch. My wife and I were enjoying a beautiful Autumn Color visit in Breckenridge in late September, 2014. While neither of us have much experience riding horses, because of the beauty of the season we decided that it might be fun to give it a try. After Googling 'dude ranches' in the area... More

2 friends and I decided to go to brekenridge in late October. We were about 2 weeks too early for skiing and what seemed to be a few weeks too late for horseback riding. However, an employee at our hotel did some research and found out we could ride at American Safari ranch. Our wrangler, Matt, was awesome. He chatted... More
