The April/May 2016 issue of Cowgirl Magazine includes a feature on C Lazy U Ranch for girlfriend getaways. Our Women in the Rockies event is listed as a “resort-style wellness retreat with an adventure twist.” We couldn’t have summarized it better ourselves!
Also mentioned are the famous Julie Goodnight clinics we host here three times a year. Some focus on ranch riding, and some focus on yoga instruction to enhance riding ability.
Any of these events at C Lazy U are perfect for women who want to de-stress and rejuvenate their spirits among other like-minded women.

This much anticipated space allows for the ranch to host multiple events simultaneously throughout the year.
“The new lodge meeting room is the next step in the ranch’s evolution to meet the needs of modern groups with just the right touch of western influence and history to stay in line with the ranch traditions,” General manager David Craig said. “It’s going to be a wonderful addition that we are all truly excited about.”
