Saddle Up! Women’s Leadership™, for professionals and business leaders, involves an amazing program of personal growth, networking, and learning, steeped in the Western lifestyle.

Led by Julie Goodnight & Barbra Schulte, both renown cowgirls, horse trainers, and thought leaders, this program gives you the experience of learning the empowering and success-building leadership lessons they learned from the back of the horse.

The program includes daily leadership seminars, equine psychology and the horse-human connection, and hands-on workshops with horses. You’ll learn, have fun, and cultivate dynamic leadership skills as you build confidence.

And, it’s the horses who will be your guides!

They are the ones who make this program powerful, transformative, and unforgettable. They will help you experience the insights, skills, and tools for communicating with others, building teams, honoring boundaries, facing your fears, having clear expectations, managing your energy, shaping behavior, and creating a culture of belonging.

You’ll enjoy the Ranch’s famous Horses and Happy Hour during our first evening together. We’ll get to know each other in a mountain meadow, surrounded by 200 head of horses.

Join Julie and Barbra, in the spirit of the cowgirl, on a spectacular Rocky Mountain ranch, as you learn transformative and inspirational leadership principles, with horses as your guide.

Fall in the Rocky Mountains is the perfect time to enjoy warm days riding on the ranch, the shimmering glow of the yellow aspen leaves, and crisp cool evenings by the fire. Engaging leadership seminars, hands-on workshops, and trail riding in the Rockies, will leave you inspired, refreshed, and armed with new tools to lead!

As always, you’ll enjoy three gourmet meals daily, luxurious accommodations, and the five-star service that C Lazy U is renowned for.

“A favorite place to return to again and again”

I just had the delightful experience of celebrating my birthday with 30 friends and family at C Lazy U ranch. Once again the service, food, activities and ambiance were exceptional. My husband and I said to each other that we could not imagine NOT returning every year. It truly is a treasured place for us.
