“Amazing ranch experience, direct from the history books!!”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

A very rustic place. Amazing scenery, great horse back riding - very basic cabin stay but quite adequate for your needs. Private cabin, shower, toilet, sink and air con. What more do you need? The owners Dee Dee and Frank are quite hospitable and Amber the wrangler is simply amazing, nothing too much trouble. We rode when we wanted and for how long we wanted. Was great to have the opportunity to trail ride where we wanted, even coming across a bull to round up, great fun! Sightings of Armadillo, Deer,Buffalo, Prairie dogs, Jack Rabbits all in time to come back for a great steak supper courtesy of Frank. Delicious!! Would highly recommend

Had a great stay at bar h, the rooms are simple but tidy, clean and comfortable and they are like you would expect for a ranch. The food was great, but you dont seem to get a choice in what food, but there's lots of it. The wrangler, Amber, was lovely, we could do what we wanted when we wanted. There were little to no restrictions on how much riding we could do. Don't expect a hotel.. It's a little rustic looking and the pool isn't great, but it's a great ranch and amazing value for money.

Just got back from the May cattle drive, amazing experience. Lots of long exciting rides and it was great getting to work the cattle with the cowboys. This is about as authentic as you can get. Wonderful place and plenty of good food and great people. Everyone goes out of their way to make sure you have a great time. We were made to feel a part of everything that was going on and there was lots. Early morning rise to round up the herds, branding and tagging cattle most of the day then back for a superb lunch with the biggest steaks I've ever seen. Good company and long lazy evenings around the camp fire. Some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen. A big thank you to everyone at the Bar H and look forward to doing it all again.

We were disappointed upon arriving to find the ranch a very messy place (animal bones, old furniture, trash, etc. all over the place). The hospitality was rather perfunctory and you should like steak (a lot). If you are a good horseback-rider you will appreciate the relaxed attitude towards safety and minimum age for kids otherwise you may encounter situations that could put you or your kids in danger (horses start trotting unexpectedly).

This is really not a 'working' ranch. There is cattle but you don't actually get to do anything with them but look at them as you ride by-unless you come to the spring roundup. Your days at the ranch consist of breakfast at a leisurely hour, trail ride through the beautiful landscape till lunch, lunch is sandwiches or soup, then head back out for another nice trail ride till supper, which is a variety of very tasty meals including steak (amazing!), buffalo, chicken, fish, shrimp or vegetarian selections if you want. DeeDee's biscuits are great! After supper, you can hang out in the dining hall and watch tv or use the WiFi and just relax.
The wrangler Melissa is the star of the ranch, helping you with the horses, entertaining on the rides, and running you around to wherever you would like to go in town or shopping in Amarillo.
The accommodations are rustic, basic, but certainly sufficient for a horseback riding vacation. Yeah, there's gonna be a few bugs, it is the country.
So if you're looking to be in a saddle for long hours enjoying the beautiful Texas landscape, good food, and simple accommodations, this is the place for you. There's not much else to do but ride so be prepared for that. The horses are older but steady rides. Some of them look a little rough because they are old.

It is very obvious thy the owners stopped caring. The rooms are dirty, the ranch messy and the horses in less than good condition. The website is almost a scam as this ranch is not a working cow ranch at all- no cowboys what so ever. Instead of a three course meal we got salad for lunch and a hard steak for dinner. The area and the ranch could be vey nice if kept up, but this way it is definitely not worth the money.

My husband and I spent a weekend here during our honeymoon. The horses were pretty and we enjoying riding however we were a little put off by the junk piles laying around. We understand it is a working ranch but thought they could tidy the place up a bit. The cabins are very basic and small. The food was good and Frank cooked some nice ribeyes over the open fire. The hosts Frank and Deedee were cordial but not overly hospitable. Probably won't be back.
