Hatchet throwing a fun activity that is offered at the ranch two times each day during the summer and is safe for ages 6 and up. The Director of Activities oversees this activity and ensures it is safe in a controlled environment, so channel your inner lumberjack and throw some hatchets!
Hatchet throwing is offered year-round and in the winter months you can enjoy this activity in the Ranch’s heated indoor riding arena.
The Horsemanship Clinic is a groundwork session in the indoor arena. The clinic provides basic groundwork instruction and allows riders to get more comfortable with their horses through a variety of leadership exercises. The clinic is available to adults only with a maximum of 6 people per session and it can be suited to any skill level.
This activity is available upon request and is not offered daily. Please check with the Outfitters Cabin to schedule a Horsemanship Clinic during your stay.
Lazy You Spa

Winter services are in a different location with a cozy sitting room and crackling fire.

One of C Lazy U Ranch’s most exciting events is the Daily Jingle. The Jingle is when the horses go out to pasture in the afternoon and come back in the morning to get ready for the daily horseback rides. It is called the Jingle because in the past bells were tied on the mischievous horses who liked to hide from being rounded up by wranglers in the dark, early mornings.
This event happens almost every day of the year and goes out and comes in from different directions on ranch depending on the selected pasture location. You can expect to see this in the afternoon from 4-5pm and in the morning from 6:30am to 8:30am depending on the season (it’s always earlier in the summer). In the afternoons we ring the “jingle bell” to alert guests so they can come out to experience this unique spectacle.
