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.

From the Horse's Mouth

“Giddyup!”

An incredible ranch experience for our group of nine people - 5 adults and 4 children ages 6 - 11. We had never been on horses, but by the end of the week, the kids were loping and participating in the "showdeo". The attention to detail, the amazing food, the variety of activities for all ages, the lovely tented spa experience and the beautiful scenery all added up to the best vacation we have ever had!
