Kids Horseback Riding Program

C Lazy U makes horseback riding accessible for kids of all ages during your family horseback riding vacation. We divide kids into groups based on age: teens, Mustangs (ages 6-12), and Cowpokes (ages 3-5).

Teens (Ages 13-17)

Teens have an action packed week filled with great adventures when they’re part of a Colorado vacation at C Lazy U ranch. From whitewater rafting trips to riding to the reservoir and going swimming, the teens get to enjoy the best of riding and camp-like activities at the same time.

Mustangs (Ages 6-12)

Mustangs are assigned their own personal horse for the week. Throughout the week the kids will develop their riding skills with great leadership from their experienced counselors. Horseback rides are filled with adventure as they visit the ranch outlaw’s hideaway, Shorty’s Cabin, and make the myth of Blue Dot Forest come to life.

Cowpokes (Ages 3-5)

The cowpokes don’t get their own horse yet but are able to be led by our ranch pony named Katie. A unique treat is getting pulled in a carriage behind our Sicilian Donkey, Petey. These experiences will make them fall in love your annual family vacation in Colorado’s Wild West.

“Amazing Getaway”

I recently went to C Lazy U with my husband, sister and son (age 7). We were there for 4 nights and it was truly one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had. All of us had a blast doing things we've never done before: horseback riding, trap shooting, hatchet throwing, archery, bb gun shooting, feeding horses. Oh - and the zip lining was a blast.
