Ranch Activities: A Little Something For Everyone
Whether you are here for the day or for the whole week or two, M Lazy C has lots to do. Check out the horses and livestock or enjoy the surrounding forests. The M Lazy C has a lot to offer.
We welcome riding clubs for those that love to get together and ride on a regular basis. The M Lazy C sits nestled in Pike National Forest and there are many trails for cowboys and cowgirls to explore.
Saddle up for one of our beautiful horseback rides through Pike National forest. Join us for one hour, 2 hour, or half day rides. See the majestic views of Pikes Peak and the Rocky Mountains. See historic mining claims and the place where the Hayman Fire started in 2002. Travel western style, astride one of our beautiful and majestic steeds.

Put your boots and chaps on, this is one cattle drive you won’t want to miss. Taking care of the cattle on this working ranch takes work! We check, move, and work cattle on a daily basis. You can join a cowboy crew as they doctor, brand, rope, and drive.

Showdown at the OK corral! Our cowboy action shooting range will put you in the middle of it all. Store fronts, bad guys, guns and ammunition, we’ve got what it takes for you to shoot ‘em up. Our instructors will show you the ins and outs of the pistol, rifle and shotgun. We also handle Cowboy Action Shooting (CAS) events, Single Action Shooting (SASS) functions, and Cowboy Mounted Shooting (CMSA). You can use your own guns or use our single action pistols and lever action rifles.

Team Building Activities
Let a little cowboy competition or cooperation bring your team all together. Whether you want to rope and ride or sort and brand cattle, we have team building activities like you’ve never done before. Play a little pen the cow/calf pair tic-tac-toe or a friendly quick draw competition. You’ll see who’s the fastest gun in the west, and the cowboys and cowgirls you want on your side when the going gets tough.
Chuck Wagon Dinner
We put on a real cowboy spread every Friday and Saturday night here at the M Lazy C. Join us for a hay ride at 6:00 and stay for a buckle bustin’ chuck wagon dinner at 6:30. Better still, come at 4:30 and join us for a horseback ride first! Choose from one of our mouth-watering entrées: flat iron steak, ½ chicken, or BBQ pork ribs made with our delicious homemade sauce. Served with all the cowboy fixin’s and sweet apple crisp for dessert, you’ll be ready for a hard day’s work come morning. And for your enjoyment, we have cowboy entertainment to bring you an hour of family friendly fun and entertainment.
