Three Bars Guest Ranch is the year-round home of the Beckley family. Jeff and April, Tyler and Jenna, and Jesse and Dee share their western cowboy lifestyle of wide, open spaces and good friends with guests from around the world. The Beckley family is directly involved in all day-to-day operations of the ranch; we are in the dining room at meal times and around the ranch all throughout the day.
With a degree in Agriculture and a rodeo background, Jeff has always been part of the cowboy lifestyle. Jeff trains reining horses for Beckley Reining, where you will find him most mornings. Guests are welcome to watch as he and his horses prepare for the international show circuit.
Jeff and Jesse give an evening reining demonstration once a week. You will be amazed what the horses are capable of.
Jeff's newest interest is training gun dogs and with this new interest comes a new opportunity for our guests. Jeff has expanded the fall ranch activities to include pheasant hunting with he and his dogs.
April was raised on a combination cattle and guest ranch in a family where learning to ride is as natural as learning to walk. Cows, cowboys, and horses have always been a part of her life. While April spends much of her day in the Three Bars Guest Ranch office, her heart remains outside with the horses, gardens, and sunshine. Most afternoons you will find April in the arena, preparing for competitive reining.
Tyler is a third generation cattle and guest rancher. Having been born and raised in the industry, he is as much at home on horseback as guiding a rafting trip. Tyler returned to Three Bars Guest Ranch after being away at Business school. He now heads up ranch activities as our head wrangler.
Tyler will assist with your travel plans before your trip as well as help with your daily activities while you are here. He is an avid golfer and sneaks away for a round whenever time allows. If you are interested in the local courses, Tyler is a great resource for you.
Tyler, Jenna and their two kids, Chase and Mya, all live here on the ranch year round. Jenna is the lodge manager overseing the kitchen oparation and guest services.
Jesse started showing reining horses at the age of 12. Later, he continued his education in the horse industry, working a total of five years in Oklahoma and California for two of the top five reining horse trainers in the world.
He then returned to Three Bars Guest Ranch to run Beckley Reining Horses with his dad. Jesse is now a professional reining horse trainer across Western Canada and the United States.
Jesse and Dee were married in the fall of 2012 and now live here on the ranch. When not on the road he coaches non-professional horse reining competitors and competitive reining horses here at Three Bars Guest Ranch. A favorite pastime of guests is to stop by the reining arena to watch Jesse at work with these amazing horses. For more information on the Beckley Reining Horse, visit www.BeckleyReining.com
