Take Advantage of Horseback Riding 

C Lazy U is home to a herd of 200 horses and a robust horseback riding program. With trail rides suitable for kids, beginners, and advanced riders, every guest can have an experience they can enjoy. Best of all, our equestrian team will pair you with a horse that matches your ability and personality for the week so you can be even more comfortable on horseback. 

Definitely do the all-day ride if your tailbone can stand it!” – Lyndsey 

If you’ve never been on a horse, this will be the most fun you’ve ever had!” -Joanie

Soak Up The Authentic Western Experiences 

At C Lazy U, we pair modern luxury with the adventure of the West. As a real working dude ranch, we follow many of the same patterns as the cowboys of old – including the fan-favorite daily Jingle. If you’ve never seen a herd of horses (and 3 spunky miniature donkeys) running to and from pasture, the Jingle will amaze you! 

Watch the Jingle as much as possible!” – Kati

From the Horse's Mouth

Words cannot express our gratitude for the incredible experience we had at the ranch for Amanda and Ben's wedding this last weekend. Aside from the beauty of the ranch, fabulous accommodations, activities, delicious food and beverages, the ability of your staff to shift from the long-arranged Spring wedding plans to a Winter wonderland affair in a matter of hours was simply amazing. While we were appreciative of the warmth, friendliness and assistance provided by all of your staff, in particular I would like to give a shout out to both Henderson and Julia, who both went the extra mile to make our stay comfortable and fun. I literally cannot wait for another opportunity to visit the ranch, and as a wedding professional myself, will recommend it to all my customers seeking a truly unique, joyful, fun-filled destination wedding.
