The world is a different place when you see it from the saddle. 

The Triple J Ranch is home to over 60 head of well- loved horses and mules. Guests consistently comment on the high quality of our quarter horses and riding program. The horses, riding program and safety are our focus, and care is taken to match ability and personality. Your horse is your friend for the week. Our high Wrangler-to-Guest ratio ensures plenty of individual attention with many different options for beginners to the experienced rider. Horseback riding is a physical activity and anyone in average shape can learn to ride. Our goal is to build confidence in you as a rider so you will comfortably enjoy the beauty of the area.


The Ranch is located in the mountains, close to the Bob Marshall Wilderness area and the terrain varies greatly. Riding activities throughout the week are designed to your level and interests. Morning and afternoon rides, as well as all day adventures take you from flower-strewn meadows to the mountain high country. This unspoiled location has dramatic changes in scenery. There are more trails surrounding this Montana dude ranch than you can experience in one visit. You may want to admire the scenery from a walk, or feel more adventurous to lope, where terrain allows. Advanced riders are easily accommodated. Many guests enjoy time in the arena with a Wrangler to perfect riding skills, or assisting with tacking their horse. 

We believe that quality is more important than quantity so rides are smaller, and time is given to focus on individual interests and ability. We encourage riding abreast instead of "nose to tail" whenever possible. This takes some effort on the part of the rider to properly cue the horse and to be a participant, not just a passenger. Every rider can improve skills through the week as you become more comfortable and our skilled Wranglers will keep a watchful eye and offer tips. The ranch is Horse Safety Certified through the Dude Ranchers Association - your safety is our concern. Weight limit for riding is 250#.
