American Safari Ranch Reviews
What better way to enjoy the landscape than on horseback? Very well behaved horses and a super guide (thanks Ryan) made this a really memorable experience. more »

I took my fiance to American safari ranch as a surprise birthday gift. The staff was very helpful and friendly. They answered my questions over the phone with no problem and even answered when I called outside of normal business hours. Our guide Jay was extremely friendly and made our two hour horseback ride very memorable. He is very knowledgeable and answers any questions a person may have. He went above and beyond to pair us with the proper horses and instructed us in a very kind way. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to go horseback riding.
I called to make reservations for my birthday and the person who answered the phone was extremely rude when answering some questions I had. I asked him more about the type of ride (trail/open pasture) and he decided to respond by asking if I could read because the website clearly states it isn't a nose to tail horse ride (which it doesn't btw). After that he then demanded to know if I had been horseback riding before and wanted to know where and when. The person on the phone wouldn't let me get a word in and every time I tried he would just cut me off. I ended up having to hang up on him because of how rude and condescending he was. He then felt it was necessary to call me 4 times. I will absolutely NEVER book a reservation at this place due to the customer service experience I received.
American Safari Ranch used to be a great place for riders of all experience levels. My last trip up there left a sour taste in my mouth. First let me be postive by saying the wranglers were fantastic! They were very knowledgeable and allowed me to ride based on my experience level. If you go please enjoy the experience they give you. Stay away from the owners if possible! I've never been treated so condescendingly by ranch owners in my life. They were rude and nasty to the wranglers, (one of which was my friend) and the wife was nasty to me, getting in my face, because I was spending time with my friend after the ride. She is also verbally abusive to her staff (which I witnessed) and son. I really hope they change their ways of hospitality, because there are too many good people (and animals) working there to lose their job because the owners are that way...just sayin...
I’m a combination of a summer and a city type. That means I prefer a comfortable hotel on the beach when I’m seeking the perfect place for holidays. When I was going to the American Safari Ranch I had one thought on my mind: “I hope I survive”. But when I was leaving I already knew how much I’m gonna miss the place and the people. A great horseback ride in the mountains, cute animals on the ranch, diverse trips around and fantastic meals. Thanks Jarka and Stan for your wonderful care and unforgettable experiences. I’m looking forward to next time!
We did the 2 hour horse back riding and it was an amazing time!! (Reasonably priced too) Our guides, Ryan and Preston, were great. Very knowledgeable and helpful along the way as we are still novices. Learned a lot about not only riding, but training the horses. Highlight of our trip, and we would definitely come back!!
