A Little bit about the area..............

Lazy K Ranch is an exciting horse boarding facility located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. We are a full service equine boarding facility just 20 minutes North of Asheville. We are just across the county line from both Madison County home of Mars Hill College and Yancey County home of Mt. Mitchell the highest point East of the Mississippi River.

We are located at the base of the Coleman Boundary where there are miles of trails to enjoy. The Coleman Boundary is also known as the Big Ivy area of the Pisgah National Forest. The Coleman Boundary has beautiful waterfalls including Walker Falls and Douglas Falls a 75' waterfall!

Enjoy year round riding conditions here in Barnardsville. The Big Ivy changes with the seasons and each season is beautiful. In the Winter while the trees are bare the scenery and long term views are breathtaking. In the Spring wild flowers are abundant. As you enter the forest the shade from the trees offers a relief from the heat of the Summer sun and in the Fall the colors are amazing to see. It is truly a peaceful place with lots of history

The Coleman Boundary was used in the filming of the Last of the Mohicans. With scenes being filmed on Elk Pen trail and at Corner Rock. Come ride your horse on the same trails that were in the movie!

A little bit about the facility................

Boarders have full use of our indoor lighted riding arena, and outdoor round pen so that horseback riding can be a year round activity.


Our two barns are clean and safe. They were constructed by Kenneth Jarrett the owner of Lazy K Ranch. Together these barns offer fifteen 12x12 stalls with mats and bedding, restroom and two tack room facilities. Lazy K Ranch provides grain and hay and daily turnout for our full time boarders. Our horses are fed three times daily and stalls are picked with each feeding. Our staff is respected by the Asheville Humane Society and local veterinarians and is used as both a foster home for horses and an equine medical layover facility.



Full board price is $500.00 per month.

Temporary board is available for $25 per day.


Animal Care and Control of Buncombe county has approved Lazy K Ranch as a foster home for horses.


We offer medical layover boarding. If you are in need of post operative care and do not have the time because of your work schedule, contact us. We have over 20 years experience in the animal medical field. We will provide prescribed treatment for your horse to help them heal after having a medical procedure.
