This ranch far exceeded my expectations. I spent a week at the ranch with my family in the summer of 2011 and we were all impressed with the facilities, horses, meals and activities. I came to the ranch expecting that there would be some 'bored' moments for our teenage children, and was thrilled when at the end of the week they asked if we could for a second. Some of the perks I feel I should share...
The Staff: Polite, friendly, willing to help, answered all of our questions, helped to improve our riding ability, and made us feel like we belonged. The Beckley's often joined us for dinner and made us feel as though their home truly was our home. The showed the care and concern for each of us as individuals.
The Horses: WOW!!! We have been to other ranches before, and some of my family ride regularily at home - they had a horse (and many more) that were suited to us perfectly. There aren't any ol' nags at Three Bars - nor are there any unco-operative, rude or ignorant horses either. The staff suits you to the horse that not only matches your riding ability, but personality as well. We never rode the same trail twice!
The Food: You can expect incredible meals, home cooked, fresh, nothing deep fried and above all there is lots of food! Don't expected fine dining - they don't advertise it - but you can expect to eat VERY well all week long!
The Cabins: Clean, comfortable, cool during the day and a great night sleep!
The Activities: I can't say enough - volleyball, tennis, campfires, hikes to the waterfalls, roping lessons, golf, fly fishing, indoor pool, hot tub, Fireengine games, Casino Night... the list goes on and on. Our favorite (besides the riding) was the ATV tour that leaves from the ranch and heads into the purcell mountains! A MUST!!
We love Three Bars, and will be returning in the summer of 2012!!! This place flts like a glove!
