The Lazy H Ranch Colorado, located in Douglas County is one of the finest equestrian ranches in the Front Range of Colorado. Everything on the ranch, from its 1400 acres of rolling mountain grasslands to its 39,000-square-foot indoor riding arena, points to a property custom made for horses and horse lovers. Almost never does a large ranch come onto the market which is within a 40-minute drive of either Denver or Colorado Springs, and one with the exceptional improvements of the Lazy H is rarer yet. Those looking for a quality horse and recreational property in a scenic Front Range location should put the Lazy H Ranch at the top of their “must-see” list.
The 7300-foot highlands at the northern edge of the Black Forest create an idyllic setting for the ranch. Throughout the ranch, spectacular views of Pikes Peak and the Rampart Range are as common as days of Colorado-blue skies. Large expanses of grasslands flanked by ponderosa pine forests are perfect for raising and riding horses and are favored by wildlife as well. Elk, deer, mountain lion and black bear regularly wander through the property, and smaller species of animals and birds are abundant. A conservation easement protects the wildlife and open space values on the ranch. Water is plentiful on the ranch, including the seasonal flow of Iron Gulch, the spring-fed Crowfoot Creek and three windmills, four wells and ten stock ponds.
