The Horses

"There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man."
Winston Churchill

Three Bars Guest Ranch is home to over 110 head of horses that live on the ranch year round. Three Bars Guest Ranch owns all its horses and does not lease outside horses for the protection of the herd and of the riders. The herd consists of approximately 80 guest horses as well as 20 performance horses, brood mares and new foals each spring.

The Dude String

The horse-to-guest ratio at Three Bars Guest Ranch is over 2-to-1, allowing our wranglers to find you the perfect horse.

During your stay at the ranch, your horse will be just that - YOUR horse. Once the wranglers have found your perfect horse, you will keep the same horse and tack for the duration of your stay.

Horses range from kids’ horses that wranglers refer to as "bomb proof", to younger horses that are suitable for more experienced riders. Whether you are a beginner or an accomplished rider, your perfect horse is waiting for you at Three Bars Guest Ranch.

"I own a lot of horses. But the most valuable horses I own are the kids horses. It takes a special horse for me to put a young person on. And I am fortunate to have some of these great horses."
- Jeff Beckley
