For the small fries, under three, we offer limited babysitting upon request so the adults can enjoy the trails together. At the Bar W, our trail riding age limit is seven years old. Cowboys and cowgirls under seven can become official Bar W Cowpokes. Our Cowpoke program allows kids to enjoy horseback riding and experience a variety of Montana oriented activities. Cowpokes will enjoy pony rides, arena games on horseback, horsemanship lessons, scavenger hunts, Montana bingo, arts & crafts, and even can become a “Montana Picasso” as they paint a horse!
Junior Cowpokes, age seven to eleven, will enjoy rides with adults as well as special Junior Cowpokes Rides for any child that does not want to do longer rides with their parents. Junior Cowpokes will enjoy miles of trail rides and games in the arena. Lead by counselors, each cowpoke team will experience great adventures including horseback riding, swimming, fishing, and exploring Montana country. Parents will have the opportunity to participate with their kids in some of these activities, as well as enjoying adults only rides and activities.
