  • 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 ch...  read 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 exp...  read 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 ...  read more »
  • I have never in my life been treated so poorly by management (Stan). I had called the morning of our reservation to see if we could come later since I had a sick child and we were trying to figure out how to take our other kids and leave our sick one behind. When I nicely inquired about coming later, only then was I informed of having to arrive 20 minutes early and was then told by Stan that he is from Eastern Europe and has respect for reservations and that I did not and that I was ignorant and a liar. I was in tears after being on the phone with him. My family was so excited for this excursion and the kids were heartbroken to not be able to go. Do NOT give this place your business. There is another place very similar down the street, Platte River Ranch and they are kind, accommodating, understanding and sensitive. They even said we could bring our sick kiddo to let horses if we thought it would help him. That is how AMERICANS run a business.
  • Visiting ASR was the perfect addition to our vacation! The service was genuine ranch style as in friendly but, without the over done buttering up. Our ranch hand paired us with the appropriate horse for our level of riding. They have a strict no nose to tail policy! Meaning you actually get to ride your horse! We made it in time for Colorado's first snow! The view was gorgeous, I have never ridden while it was snowing, such a wonderful experience. After our 2 mile ride, we were welcomed back to the cabin with hot apple cider! This was a worthwhile experience that I definitely recommend and will be back for!!
  • This Place is a Joke! There is nothing American about this PLACE The kitchen has not been used in years, or cleaned! They are living in their Past Glory Days, when they might have had a business. The 75 years old Father runs the place and the mother does what ever.The JOKE of a Son highs but the old man fires. Do not Waste your Time Going to this place. Safari do enter at your own RISK. The horses are the around the same age as the FATHER. Both ready for the Glue factory.
  • American Safari Ranch's horseback riding is phenomenal and an absolute must if you are planning a visit to one of Colorado's mountain towns. My family and I have been doing a yearly trip to Breckenridge for over 15 years now, and I can't believe we just now discovered this gem. ASR has a massive, breathtaking property full of picturesque views. ASR allowed just the three of us to head out on a 2-hour ride on personally matched horses. Our guide, Devon, was AMAZING. He made riding comfortable, fun, and easy. Devon was super friendly, knowledgeable about the horses, property and near-by towns, and just made the ride that much better. He ensured that we never were tail-to-nose with our horses, and we stayed off the trails. WE rode our horses, the horses did not ride us. Our group was fairly comfortable on top of the horse, so we were able to trot our horses at our pleasure, and were offered the 3-hour ride over the mountain. This was incredible and totally recommended for the extra $30! I've been on many horseback rides and none have even come close to the experience at ASR! It is such a great value and you will not regret making the trip! Ask for Devon too -- and enjoy the ride!
  • My experience with the outfit was terrible. All the help did was fight and bicker amongst each other. It is not recommended. Good luck.
