We were making our first trip to Texas. Full of vacation expectation we landed in Austin from Ireland and drove straight away to Bar M Ranch stopping on the way to buy a pair of western riding boots. Anne had them on in no time and we were down in the Corral with Trisha explaining carefully the difference between European... More

Great place to stay. Spacious accommodation, clean and well appointed. Nice scenery, deer watching, pretty cattle. They offer trail rides I've heard are great. Just 3 miles from the cowboy capital of Texas, Bandera. We will be going back!

We had a wonderful time at the Bar M. Trisha was a very patient and experienced horsewoman. She spent a lot of time explaining everything about the horses and making sure that we were comfortable. As I am a newbie, I appreciated her very thoughtful instructions. The 3 hour ride went by in a flash! The accommodations were very comfortable,... More

Just made my 3rd visit to Bar M Ranch. I now go every year, & try to go twice a year. I will return this weekend, with friends. Here's what you get: Dark skies at night, filled with stars. Extraordinary sunsets from the deck of the new cabin, where you can sip tea, & let your mind rest, & watch... More

We spent 3 nights in the bunk house at the Bar M Ranch and didn't want to leave! The bunk house itself is really lovely, clean and cozy and has brilliant amenities. We even did our clothes washing there because we were on a 3wk road-trip and there was plenty of laundry detergent etc for us to use. They also... More

Trisha is also a brilliant riding instructor, very patient and explains things clearly. The horses are real characters and a joy to ride. The trails are beautiful... More

Spent two perfect days in the new cabin. Perfectly clean, furnished and designed. Many wild deers around. Trisha is a experienced and caring instructor for horse riding. It is way more authentic than a dude. The location is scenic and quiet, hidden in a valley close to Bandera. For families with kids, it has a tremendous home cinema device with... More

My group was one of the first group to stay in the bunkhouse over 15yrs ago, the Bar-M has been our only vacation destination since then. We love Trish and Mike for not only the wonderful people they are but also for their dedication to always making the ranch a true working ranch, not a commercial gimic. The riding trails... More

This is our second visit to Trisha & Mike's ranch. We came looking for a ranch without frenetic activities, but with peaceful trail rides, gentle horses, great views, dark night skies, & comfortable accommodations where we could make our own healthy meals, & take long walks, & where a pet would be welcome, & we were delighted to find Bar...

I can't say enough about the truly awesome experience my family and I had at the BAR M RANCH this month. The cabins were set up as if we were staying with family. The private trail rides were the best and most rewarding horseback riding I have ever experienced. The wildlife, peacefulness, quietness, lack of light pollution at night so... More
