Bar W Guest Ranch Montana

Ranch Facilities

The Bar W is a top notch facility for various activities: an equestrian facility with the ability to support riders of all capabilities and riding events of all kinds; an event facility for all occasions of any size (weddings, company parties, reunions, square dancing, or a good old fashioned Country get-together) (Dave's Hoe-down.)




The Indoor arena (60X100)
 is heated and can be utilized all year round to improve riding skills, take lessons, take part in scheduled clinics or watch a trainer work with the horses - or have a party with a live band and kick-it in with some dancing, hooting and hollering.

The outdoor arena (136 X 232) is a true western style arena where we conduct clinics, give lessons, and do ranch sorting and team penning with cattle. The arena is a great place to improve on your horsemanship and to try out barrel racing and other fun activities.
