Your Ranch Hosts

The animals at Big Bar Ranch are our reason for everything. We pride ourselves in providing them with a healthy home to live and grow. The ranch is home to roughly 40 horses, two dozen Jersey steers, chickens, pigs and Boer goats; and of course, you cannot forget the ranch dogs. All together they make up a wonderfully large family of characters. There is never a dull moment on the farm. We would be delighted if you joined in on all the fun.

Our Horses

The horses at Big Bar Guest Ranch are the heart of the ranch community. With a happy and healthy herd of roughly forty members, we feel confident that we can match each rider with a horse that will suite their skillset and provide the equestrian experience they are seeking.

 

Our Trails

Our trail rides take us over gradual hillsides and wide open meadows of diverse wild flowers. We traverse historic cattle country and ponder majestic views of vast untouched wilderness. The “old west” still lives in the shadows of the valleys in this countryside, its richness almost tangible as your heels touch the tall grass from the back of your horse.

Our riding

Your all inclusive package includes the option of up to five hours in the saddle each day. Our knowledgeable Wranglers will match each horse to rider and all experience levels are welcome. Big Bar Guest Ranch has over 200,000 acres of countryside to explore and a few options for how to do that to create your ideal horseback riding adventure.

Big Bar Guest Ranch also provides the opportunity for an abundance of different activities to keep you unplugged, active and out in nature. Hit the trails on foot for an outstanding array of hiking trails from intermediate to advanced all day hikes. Head out on our private lake with one of the ranch canoes or paddle boats. Try a hand at trout fishing or see if you can hit the target with a bow and arrow.

The opportunities to create adventure are endless. Come and join the ride.
