From the horses, owners and wrangler this is the place to go. Most horseback experiences I have done are that you are all bunched up in single file and unable to hear the guide ahead of you. Not here you can ride side by side or mostly all alone in a large open meadow. This ranch with its owners and... More

We rode horses for 2 hours through the mountain. It was awesome and a cool experience. I don't know what these other reviews are talking about when they say they had a bad time?! The people there were extremely nice and it was organized. It is also authentic cowboy so if your scared to "chip a nail" then go back... More

Wow! Not sure where to begin. This is the way horseback riding should always be. No long lines, no processing licenses, no nose-to-tail walking at all!! I've been riding for decades (with little skill mind you); and, my friend had never been on a horse. Kevin picked out the sweetest horses in the barn for us (he picked out two... More

We came with a group of 8 and did the two hour ride. We had Kevin as our wrangler/tour guide. He was awesome. So kind, funny and knew his stuff. We liked that this place is more of a free ride style opposed to just riding in a line back to back. We went at 10 am and that was... More

Just got back from a great wintertime 2 hour ride! Horses were awesome, and not your typical follow the leader trail horses. We were able to spread out, and go off the beaten path. Kevin was our guide and was very entertaining and Stan the owner was there to great us. Over all great experience we are going to definitely... More

We visited Breckenridge in the "shoulder" season...although all information said Nov. 13, 2015, was the opening day of the ski season, and we thought there would be a lot to do even though we don't ski. Concierge at Valdoro Mtn Lodge told us nothing was going on as far as snowmobiles or ATV tours. We were very disappointed, but luckily... More

Horseback riding at the American Safari Ranch was overall a great experience. The ranch is not marked as well as it could be, but there isn't much else around so it's not hard to figure out where to go. Our family of seven road with Sarah and Doug. They were great guides and made the experience very fun. It was... More

My two daughters and I and went on a 2 hour guided horseback ride and were incredibly lucky to have Sara as our wrangler. The farm and the riding was awesome! Sara made sure we were comfortable and educated so we could enjoy this ride. We spread out and were able to experience the beauty of Colorado! Trotting, cantering and... More

One I the best rides I've had yet. Our wrangler Kevin was very experienced and great. The ride was beautiful. We did a 2 hour ride with free lunch. Highly recommend it. We were a party of three and got to go with us and Kevin. Next time might try the atv tour. Will definitely go again. The views were... More

We went for the 2hr ride a couple days ago. The ranch reminded me of an old western town. Our cowboy, I wish I could remember his name was awesome! He's from Lousiana I know. He made my family feel like real Cowboys/girls! It was way better than the nose to tail trails, relaxing yet exciting. When we got back... More
