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

Amazing place and such friendly staff. We booked a morning ride just last week and, had the best time! Stan, the owner, gave great instructions - three things to remember! We had three adults (40s and a 20+) and two children: 12 and 11. All of us had a great time. Our 12-year-old who had only ridden two or three... More

We went on a great 2 hour horse ride in breathtaking fall mountain scenery. Just perfect timing for catching the aspen's turning bright red and yellow! I rode Dallas, who was an absolute gentle giant and made wondering though aspen forests very enjoyable. The entire time we were treated great by the staff. It has a great rustic cowboy feel... More

My best friend and I wanted to go horseback riding in CO, so I called this stable. We wanted to ride that day. The man who answered said he had a ride at 10 am, it was 8 am when I called and he was an hour away. When I asked if he had anything later, he said it would... More

This was by far one of the highlights of our trip to Colorado. The workers were extremely friendly and totally put my kids at ease (ages 6 and 10) Seeing my 6 year old on his own horse riding through the beautiful scenery and seeing the sheer joy on my wife and daughter's faces was priceless. The owner was very... More

DO NOT CALL this place. this owner is rude and will not answer your questions. He will yell at you and degrade you. At the end he will tell you to go book elsewhere. call at your own risk!

After reading many reviews, I choose this place because I was an avid rider, and I wanted my wife of 10 years to experience what it is like to ride if you were riding your own horse. Our guide Nick made that happen. He let us lead the way, as he followed, and he seemed to enjoy the ride as... More
