We stayed here for the last week of their season, end of September. It was a shortened week and we had worried that we might not be offered all the activities available during a regular week, We needn't have worried. They crammed everything in to the 5 days. Jerry, Cheri and their staff were as professional, helpful, upbeat and enthusiastic...

The staff, the food, the horses, and the accommodations were all fantastic. I stayed at Bar Lazy J during adults only week in September. I had never ridden a horse before, but with their excellent choice of horse, and the horsemanship clinic, I was able to ride every day and thoroughly enjoy it. The horses are very well cared for...

Wonderful vacation! Outstanding service, excellent food, quaint comfortable cabins, beautiful setting right on the Colorado River! The equestrian program is excellent and this coming from a horse owner. The horses are well trained, well cared for and the wranglers make safety their first priority. They also own their horses which makes an enormous difference in their ability to match horse...

We just visited Bar Lazy J this past July. The past reviews are spot on but I'll add a few notes. We have visited 4 ranches in the past 4 years - this ranch has by far the best riding program - especially for an advanced rider (equally as fantastic for beginner or novice riders). I own a horse and...

Just got back from a great week at this wonderful ranch. The whole week was great: great weather, great riding, good food and amazing staff. Wonderful kids program for those with kids under 12. The riding was so much fun and they really want you to be happy with everything. We have been to other ranches and the riding program...

We just spent a week with Jerry and Cherri and their team of wranglers (July 2016) at this lovely ranch. It was a "first" for us City Slickers. We went b/c friends recommended it.

It was time for me and my grandson to get some time together. By chance we got to chatting with some friends at Thanksgiving. "I've gotta find a place for me and my grandson to get some time together. He's almost fifteen, and I'm stuck." The fellow I was chatting with spoke up immediately, "O, you gotta go the the...

Wonderful Accommodations. Phenomenal Food. Fabulous Staff. Beautiful Location. Great family vacation. And lots of things for the kids to do with the new friends they made at the ranch. Truly a high quality experience from the minute we arrived until the minute we left.
