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.

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
