The Swisher Package allows you to not only enjoy the trails and arena activities provided in the Spencer package, but it takes you off-site to some spectacular rides.
This package was named after our Swisher Lake ride. We will take you up to Eureka, MT where you will pass iconic lakes and mountain views. You will ride along the U.S. Canadian border and beautiful Lake Koocanusa.
We also have the nearby Cliff Lake Ride. This ride goes through the forest and meadows with views of a small pond and Cliff Lake. It covers a variety of terrain, from wide logging roads to narrow mountain trails, as well as a climb up to a scenic viewpoint.
This season we are adding the Grave Creek Ride for Family Weeks. Guests will ride along hay fields and cattle pastures and wind through Montana forests with views of the mountains, crossing over and riding alongside Grave Creek.
For the Adult Only weeks we have the Grave Creek Cattle Drive where you will have the opportunity to sort and move cattle for the day on the same terrain as the Grave Creek Ride…always a guest favorite!
All skill levels may participate in this package – beginner, beginner/intermediate, and intermediate. There is more riding time in comparison to the Spencer package and includes all rides leaving from the ranch, arena activities (lessons, team penning, etc.), and one ride on each of the off-site rides. Horses will vary, giving you the opportunity to ride and love more than just one horse.
A very important requirement to participate in the Swisher package is that you MUST be able to mount the horse by yourself from the ground.
NOTE: Bar W's weight limit for horseback riding is 225 pounds.
