Enjoy the mountains as we near the peak of the fall colors in the Colorado Rockies. The already spectacular scenery at the Ranch unveils more glory in the Autumn. Aspens crown the mountainside in golden grandeur. Fall is exclusively for adults at our Colorado dude ranch. The tranquility and stillness are uninterrupted, whether you’re riding through the aspen forests…or curling up with a favorite book by an crackling fireplace.

Elk Mountain Ranch offers many of the same activities as summer, but takes a maximum 20 guests. With a focus on riding and relaxation…the adult-only weeks have proven to be quite popular.

Please Note: Rafting is not guaranteed during our adult-only weeks as it is dependent upon the water level on the Arkansas River. In lieu of the raft trip, a van trip to Cripple Creek is offered. Cripple Creek is an historic mining town that now allows limited stakes gambling. Let us treat you to a mine tour, which takes you 1,000 feet under ground, and the narrow-gauge train ride. Lunch will be provided with some time to tour the town on your own or try your luck at the casinos.

This type of riding consists of cattle work and trail riding at a faster pace. Participants do have to be tested at the beginning of their stay and show that they are able to control their horse in all gates and over various terrains. These programs are guided by some of our more experienced cowboys and wranglers. No matter the level of riding we do at The Hideout, we adopt a Natural Horsemanship Culture respecting our horses under all circumstances.

We adapt the speed and riding to the challenging terrain in this area. Experienced equestrians will notice immediately where one can go fast or not. They know that even the best horse will run out of breath faster at high elevations.

It was there he found a Dutch Oven and began experimenting with traditional recipes. It wasn’t long before Dave was catering Western Events as a featured cook, and today his friends will tell you “There’s nothing he can’t make in a Dutch Oven…”

Our Dutch Oven Cooking workshop leaves plenty of time to relax and enjoy the amenities of the ranch. Horseback riding, though not included in this workshop, may be purchased a la carte.

C Lazy U yoga retreat

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.

Learn more! Call 970-887-3344. Visit C Lazy U's website. Email C Lazy U.
