Ranch Riding Adventure Daily Schedule

Join us for an amazing Ranch Riding Adventure with Julie Goodnight and her assistant trainers! Take advantage of discounted rates for world-class accommodations with programming and riding included. Some participants will bring their own horses and others will use one of the great horses at the ranch.

This amazing weekend kicks off with Horses and Happy Hour – your opportunity to get to know Julie Goodnight and her crew, to socialize with other like-minded participants and to meet the magnificent herd of 200 horses.

Each day starts off with Cowgirl Coffee followed by a hearty ranch breakfast to fuel you for your adventurous day! After meeting up with your riding group you will begin your rotation through four daily riding sessions:  a clinic with Julie, trail obstacles, cattle sorting, and guided trail riding.

Lessons learned:

  • Improved riding skills
  • The principles of working with cattle from horseback, with an emphasis on safety
  • Balancing in the saddle, effective cueing with light aids
  • A deeper understanding of horse behavior

By the end of the weekend, your horsemanship skills and confidence will be sharply honed, you will have met and made new friends for a lifetime, and you will be re-energized in a way that can only happen in the presence of horses and the majestic Rocky Mountains! On Monday morning you will enjoy your final ride before saying goodbye until next year.

This program is for all ability levels and offers plenty of saddle time for those who cannot get enough, and plenty of alternative activities when you need a break. Enjoy the incredible Fall weather—warm days and cool nights. Be prepared to ride a lot, soak in the incredible mountain vistas, enjoy socializing with like-minded souls, and have many great adventures on the back of a horse!

A limited number of spots are available. Reserve today!

Words cannot describe the awesomeness of the C Lazy U riding adventure last week. Top-notch accommodations, incredible staff, breathtaking views, and the Julie Goodnight instruction and information sharing was unmatched. Oh – and Rich and the cows were a blast! The whole trip was incredibly restorative for me in my personal journey. I thank you Julie from the bottom of my heart.
