Cattle & Colts Clinic - Sorry, no clinics scheduled at this time.
Raising stock horses is a way of life at the Lazy K, and in our humble opinion there is no greater joy than working cattle from the back of a good horse.
As a way of saying "thank you" to our loyal customers, we would like to invite Lazy K horse owners to bring their mounts back to the ranch for our Cattle & Colts Clinic. This unique clinic will be divided into three elements, each with a different clinician focusing on a particular aspect of working and moving cattle on horseback. Midday, all the riders will assemble and drive the cows east along the Chowchilla River to where lunch will be provided at the end of the trail.
The riding fee is $45/person and each rider must bring their own Lazy K horse. Horses must have a Lazy K freeze mark on the left hip and/or have been bred here on the ranch. If you wish to come the night before, we have an open area where you can park and there are portable panels for your horse. A water source will be accessible near by so please bring your own water bucket & hay. You are also welcome to stay in your rig or set up a tent but please understand there are no hookups. Please no stallions or pets.
As always, spectators are welcome. The spectator fee is $20 for adults (16 years and up) and $10 for children (6 to 15 years). Children under 6 are free. After watching the herd work at the headquarters, spectators will climb aboard a flatbed trailer and join the cattle drive up to the lunch spot but there is no seating so be sure to bring a folding chair for each member of your party.
Tickets need to be purchase in advance.

Sorry, no clinics schedule at this time.
A young horse is naturally inquisitive. As soon as they are strong enough to stand, a newborn foal is using their nose to smell and touch the world around them. Tapping into this natural instinct is a great way to bond with your horse and reassure them in scary situations. We call this "shaking hands".
