Amazing horse ride - eccentric owner - fantastic experience

You'll see a number of reviews mentioning the eccentric owner and they are all more or less true. But who cares! The important things are, the horses are well cared for, the ride... read more

The owner can care less if you have a good ride or not! They stolen two of are horses after leaving them for a better job...you can support them if you want... not this cowboy!

You'll see a number of reviews mentioning the eccentric owner and they are all more or less true. But who cares! The important things are, the horses are well cared for, the ride is amazing and the chief wrangler Devon is the nicest man on the planet. My wife had so much fun riding across the range in more or... More

My husband and I went ATV riding today, we both had never been ATV riding before. So we were not sure what to expect. Wow, what fun! Our guide Devon was a gem, told us a lot about the area and was experienced and helpful. My only complaint we were told to arrive 30 minutes before our ride time. We... More

If you are looking for the best horsebackriding in the world thats a right place. Wranglers are really proffesional and informative about area and horses at all. You can ride horses your own way. You can ride side by side not nose to tail. All horses are really nice and gentle. Wranglers watch you all the time during the ride... More

Stan seems to have the market on ATV rentals, called SouthPark ATV's and after a short conversation - he hung up on me! Then called American Safari and got the same man (however much nicer the second call). Once, we got there, our first impression disappeared. The setting is beautiful, right in a valley between the mountains. Both husband and... More

We did a one hour ATV experience at American Safari and had a great time. We have been on more challenging courses in the past and with more modern equipment, but this was still fun and enjoyed by all. After a lap on an open field, we ventured across the road into slightly more challenging terrain (rocks, hills). Overall, it... More

We enjoyed our ride, but witnessed Stan(owner), speaking to an employee asking a question in a very harsh manner. He is condescending, extremely rude and doesn't care in the least if you had a good experience. What a shame.

When you arrive at this place please don't let your first impressions scare you. The owner and some of the workers are from Eastern Europe and their accent makes them a bit difficult to understand but don't let that bother you. We were both very nervous about riding horses as we hadn't in over three decades! The young man that... More

Family of five (total novices!!) went horseback riding. Our three children have never rode before and the experience didn't disappoint. Upon arrival the owner was very invested in ensuring our safety and talking to the kids (ages 12, 10 and 8) about having confidence, and control of their horse. Asked them questions to ensure they understood how to use the... More

Not a typical trail ride... We had so much fun! Devon was our guide and he connected with our kids and made sure to really include them in the fun. Would definitely recommend this place and ask for Devon!
