Trail Riding at the Bar W

Most of our daily horseback rides cater to our weeklong dude ranch guests, where all rides are included as part of the all-inclusive experience.

Horseback Riding For Weeklong Guests

A stay at a dude ranch wouldn’t be complete without all-you-can-ride horseback outings. We form the whole ranch experience around putting you in the saddle as often as you want.

Not only that but since we’re sited just outside Glacier National Park minutes from Whitefish, Montana, you’ll find yourself swaying through some of the most incredible views in the United States. You’ll even get to peer into Canada on some of your rides.


Rides For Weekly Guests Include:

  • Canadian border ride: Hoof it to the border for iconic views of two nations’ natural treasures. Ride along the shores of Lake Koocanusa, a beautiful aqua blue-green lake with wide, sandy beaches where you can recuperate from your saddle time. Getting to the trailhead is almost as pretty as being on the trail!
  • Timberline trails: Head into the Montana mountains on horseback for rides that will stick with you for a lifetime. You ride through open prairies surrounded by rugged peaks, fragrant wildflower meadows, and even soar above timberline to see what Mountain Life is all about. The ridgelines are calling. Will, you answer?

Horseback Riding For Day And Local Guests

Not everyone can spend a whole week at the ranch, which is why we provide trail rides as often as possible based on availability and trail conditions.

Within 7 days of your desired outing, contact us to check availability of trail rides.

We currently offer two-hour rides and half-day rides on trails through the woods and into the mountains.

Your trail ride adventure begins as our wranglers match you to one of our sure-footed horses, followed by an orientation designed to help you feel confident on your horse.

Your safety comes first along with the welfare of the horse.

Emphasis is always placed on your safety and the welfare of the horse.

Children must be at least seven years old for our day-trip horseback rides.

Please call our office to book your trail ride at 406-863-9099.
