Sunday Horseback Riding

In order to ensure the safety of our guests and horses we do not offer horseback riding on Sundays. There are a few exceptions to this rule/policy during certain holidays. Please contact the reservations department to inquire about a specific date.

Horseback Riding Weight Restrictions:

The C Lazy U Ranch considers safety as one of our most important responsibilities. This obligation includes horseback riding operations and requires us to ensure the safety of both rider and horse. As such, the C Lazy U will exercise caution with regard to allowing horseback riding for individuals of heavier weights. The weight limit for horseback riding at C Lazy U Ranch is restricted to 250 pounds. C Lazy U Ranch considers several factors in determining whether or not an individual is too heavy or too big to ride, including: rider’s physical fitness, riding experience and ability, size of the horse, type of terrain, speed of ride, and other factors. As a general rule, horses can safely carry loads of up to 20% of their body weight including rider, saddle and tack. The C Lazy U ranch will exercise discretion when addressing these issues and reserves the right to prohibit riding or restrict riding to level terrain, or walk-only rides. Please do not hesitate to contact our Barn Manager to discretely discuss specific circumstances.


The C Lazy U Ranch is a non-smoking property. A deep cleaning fee will be charged for smoking in rooms.

Controlled Substance Policy

C Lazy U Ranch does not permit within the property unlawful possession or use of controlled substances as defined under either federal or state law. C Lazy U Ranch is committed to providing a safe, healthy and memorable experience for all its guests. We therefore ask all guests to respect our policy in maintaining a drug free property, which includes the prohibition of marijuana as required by federal law. Please feel free to contact C Lazy U Ranch with any questions or concerns.

From the Horse's Mouth

“Best Family Trip”

We have been wanting to go to C Lazy U for quite a few years now and finally made the trip happen. All I could think was why did we wait so long. Our kids were so enthralled with the whole experience. The counselors were great, the horses and whole ranch experience was great, food was amazing, lodging was awesome.
