We booked Bar Lazy J through our travel agent and it was an excellent choice. We are two adults with children aged 7 and 5 with little riding experience beyond a similar type of holiday at Ant's Hill in South Africa last year. The ranch is an easy two hour drive from Denver Airport (one of our criteria was to... More

In Fort Collins after the week-long vacation at Bar Lazy J. The place is stunning, staff is awesome, and the programs are excellent. Great time for all of us; good riders and not so good riders. Awesome programs for all ages; riding, archery, riding lessons, fishing, target shooting, line dancing, you name it. They are great with the kids and... More

We just got back from a family reunion at the bar lazy j and I think each of us left impressed. From those who had never been on a horse to the "retired" wranglers in our group, everyone loved the riding program. The fishing was good and the staff was amazing. Cherri and Jerry went out of their way to... More

Near the road , so some road traffic noise... The food is not gourmet, but very tasty and nicely diverse.....I thought the horse program was really excellent with a lot of instruction and groups broken down into... More

We just got home from the Bar Lazy J and what a vacation. This is the second year in a row we have come to the ranch. This is hands down the best vacation my family has taken. From the owners down to the wranglers and staff, they are the nicest people. My kids didn't miss tv or the internet... More

My husband and I just returned from a week at the Bar Lazy J. Our first time there. It was one of the best vacations we've ever taken and have already signed up to return next year. Both of us are experienced riders but there were plenty of people who weren't. The ranch does a terrific job of satisfying riders... More

I just returned from my third summer trip to Bar Lazy J. Even though I have always owned my own horses, the Bar Lazy J has horses to meet any rider's level of experience. Bar Lazy J is a wonderful experience for individuals, couples and families.

As I was rapidly approaching 60 my friend and I (both with 55 years of riding experience) decided to go on a holiday of a lifetime, something we had both wanted to do for some time. And boy of boy we were not disappointed. September 2011 during adults only week was our time, a fantastic experience, nothing could be faulted.... More

I have been a guest at Bar Lazy J for five visits and every time, my visit gets better and better! Never the same from year to year. The owners of the ranch property continue to add activities and maintain the ranch property like a national treasure. Words can't describe the awesomeness of this mystical, magical place. Give it a... More

Traveled to The Bar Lazy J the first week in September for adults week. I've only been on a horse once in my life and that was too many years ago. I must say all of the staff at the Bar Lazy J were extremely encouraging, helpful and competent making my riding experience something I will never forget. We had... More
