BAR W Guest Ranch Kids Program

If you are thinking about a great summer vacation for kids, think horseback riding, there is no better place than The Bar W Ranch! We are developing a great program for the younger cowpokes this year. For the small fries under four we will be offering limited babysitting upon request. At the Bar W, our trail riding age limit is seven years old. Cowboys and cowgirls under seven can take pony rides and work on their skills in the arena.


Seven to elevens will have their own special rides on certain days, with trail rides and games in the arena. With their own counselor they will have great adventures, swimming, fishing and taking trips to the Big Mountain Ski and Summer Resort. Parents will have the opportunity to participate with their kids in some of these activities, as well as enjoying adults’ only rides and activities.

Out here in the West, ranch life starts at a young age, so teenagers are welcome to join the older cowboys in all rides and activities. We also encourage young cowboys to help the wranglers work the horses in the mornings to get them ready for the day. We start early with feeding, grooming and saddling.


In our rec-hall there are games, pool table, and darts. We can have great fun here, working on Cowboy and Indian crafts.

What ever your age, The Bar W has a great vacation waiting for you.
