My family group of 11 (ages 15 to 60+) had a fun 2 hour ride with wranglers Viola, Ella & Ryan, followed by lunch! Most of us were beginner riders and all felt very comfortable. Beautiful scenery, nice ride, friendly & helpful staff. Definitely recommend!

What a great authentic ride. Our guide, Ella, did a great job at leading us on an anazing 2hr tour. If you are staying in the Breckenridge/Frisco/Keystone area, this is worth the trip. It’s only 40 min away and so worth it to have a...More

Colorado/Denver Horse ranches (5 Replies)
I am trying to find information on a number of horse ranches around the Denver area (1-2.5hour ride) for my daughter and I. Some have a lot of info others not so much. Many are part of the Dude Ranch Association and in July require a 7 night stay but I'm limited to 3 days/nights. I have seen some information on American Safari Ranch in Fairplay and I understand you can book a shorter stay there unfortunately there is very limited internet info on them. I am looking for info on this ranch or...More

Look at ranchweb.com. There are many ranches that offer a 3 day option.
