Summer Packing List

  • Jeans or traditional riding pants.
  • Pull-on boots with a heel for riding (adults may wear lace-ups, but we prefer that they wear the pull-on variety if possible).
    • While we do have a small selection of boots for you to borrow from we can’t guarantee boots for every guest. You can find great inexpensive boots at Sheplers.com (we suggest: Old West, Justin, Ariat and Roper).
  • Helmets – if you have your own and prefer to use it you sure can, but we do provide helmets and require all guests 17 and younger to wear helmets.
  • Cowboy hats or ball caps are appropriate headwear for adult horseback rides.
    • We ask that a hat clip, or stampede string be worn with cowboy hats. Both of these items can be purchased at our store if needed.
  • Chaps or half-chaps (optional)
  • Riding gloves (required)
  • FOR THE LADIES – a sports bra for riding.
  • Swimsuits for the pool and hot tub, and for the reservoir rides that your kids’ counselors might take your kids on.
  • Flip-flops/sandals
  • Tennis shoes
    • The kids’ evening activities often involve running around the ranch (counselor hunt and capture the flag, for example)
    • The C Lazy U offers a myriad of non-equine related activities such as tennis, basketball, etc.
  • Shorts
    • It gets fairly warm in the summer and we have a lot of non-horse related activities for you to enjoy at your leisure.
  • Rain jackets or long slickers
    • These can be placed into your saddle bags or tied to your saddle while riding.
  • Dinner Attire for Adults
    • Dressing up at the ranch doesn’t require a sport coat, although you may see one or two.  It does typically require a blouse, a collared shirt and your best cowboy boots.   Our guests have fun with western fashion and may often be seen in a fancy western shirt, crisp blue jeans and a handsome belt and cowboy boots. Adult dinner attire has been described as “Cowboy Chic” – men usually wear jeans (or slacks) and a nice button down, and women wear ranch/western dressy skirts and tops, or dress jeans and dressy western tops. Have a little fun with it– “cowboy-up” your cocktail attire! For more detailed info on the C Lazy U dress code, please see our Guest Policies page.
  • Dinner Attire for Kids
    • Dinner is typically served outside on the Patio House deck, and their after-dinner evening activities are usually outdoors as well, so light layers are a must when you drop them off in the evenings.
  • Layers
    • The evenings do tend to cool down, so a heavier coat or sweater would be appropriate for those evenings spent around the camp fire.
  • Sunscreen and bug spray if you have a preferred brand.
We provide the following:
  • Sunscreen
  • Bug spray
  • Helmets
  • Small selection of riding boots
  • Refillable water bottles

From the Horse's Mouth

“Peace and Relaxation in a beautiful setting!”

We took our kids and my mother here for a Summer vacation in July of 2015. What a beautiful entrance...as we pulled up there were Cowboys greeting us at check in. Lodging, staff, food, scenery is 5 stars. I know we'll be back one day...and we can't wait to plan it!
