Family owned and operated since its beginning, C Lazy U is an inclusive, luxury guest ranch that has been dedicated to providing memorable family vacations since 1919 and has been renowned as a 5-star, 5-diamond ranch for years. C Lazy U Ranch boasts picturesque views of the Continental Divide and the Indian Peaks Wilderness, while maintaining a secluded feel, being nestled in a quaint valley, on over 9,000 acres.
During a typical stay, kids and adults have the opportunity to ride twice a day, every day, improving their riding skills on horses that are anything but nose-to-tail animals at this Colorado dude ranch. C Lazy U’s wranglers take pride in the natural horsemanship techniques they use to train independent, fun to ride horses; and at the end of a week’s stay, guests participate in a shodeo to show off the skills they have acquired over their Colorado ranch vacation.
The luxury of C Lazy U Ranch is best seen in its full service spa, which overhangs the Willow Creek, it’s cuisine, and it’s charming cabins- the model of ranch elegance, built using wood from the forests on property. Whether you are looking for a summer vacation, or a new way to spend the fall and winter holidays, the C Lazy U Ranch is the Premier Guest Ranch.

C Lazy U- 3-night Women’s Retreat with Cowgirl Yogini Cathy Woods May 11- 14, 2017
RATE: $385 per person per night plus tax and service charge.
What do you get when you combine a Yogini, horses and a world class ranch? You get a renewing, fun, awareness journey through yoga and horses.
Body, Mind, Equine™ is not really about “doing yoga postures on the back of your horse,” though we do a few stretches in the saddle. The program is about how to use yoga & yogic principles to improve your horsemanship from ground to saddle. Note:Cathy Woods does not claim to be a horse trainer or riding instructor; her goal is to assist students in becoming more aware, conscious riders.
This all-inclusive fun and educational program combines “body and breathing awareness” with “energy and present moment awareness”. Much of these skills can be applied to all areas of life! In this retreat you will greet the day with a gentle morning yoga class including good stretches for riders, followed by workshops on meditation, breath-work and exploring the parallels of yoga and horsemanship. Time is spent on the mat, ground work and energy exercises in the arena with horses, saddle time and of course trail rides!
All levels of yogis and riders welcome, including beginners.
