........Where Quality Counts, Results Matter, and Hard Work Pays Off, to Promote Mountain Horses With the Highest Quality Rocky Mountain Horses and Gaited Horse breed in the industry...   Ride with Comfort, Glide with Confidence!

Welcome to Lazy K Ranch, home of high quality Rocky Mountain Horses, where our purpose is to promote the highest quality of Rocky Mountain and Kentucky Mountain Horse. We  strive to preserve heritage and ancestry of the RMH,KMSHA Mountain Horse breeds with the Gaited Mountain Horses. Lazy K Ranch works to accomplish this through careful professional breeding and the training of our rockies for show arena and trail.

 Lazy K Ranch is located in Southern Campbell County Kentucky, just 20 miles south of Cincinnati, OH and 62 miles north of Lexington, KY. The 80 plus acre ranch was purchased by Howard and Terry Kleier in 1999.  Over a ten year period Lazy K Ranch has grown into a “one of a kind” state-of-the-art equine facility. The facility offers an in-door riding arena, outside riding arenas, horse trails, pristine pastures and stalls for the gaited Rocky Mountain horses of all ages and colors, for trail, show, sale and breeding.

The Ranch has 5 miles of horse trails that connect directly to AJ Jolly Park for an additional 14 miles of trails. Lazy K Ranch works with Northern KY Horse Network and the Park, to maintain these beautiful horse trails. With a guided trail ride a person can enjoy from 2 hours to a full day’s ride.  On your ride, you will be instructed in safety for yourself, other people, your horse, plus instruction on trail and environmental etiquette.

Lazy K Ranch also offers “Top Of The Barn” rentals in our banquet hall for up to 125 people, overnight accommodations for up to 8 people for a weekend getaway.  The “TOB facility offers 4,000 square feet with 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, kitchen, heating and air and a game room available for all to enjoy. Enjoy a getaway that includes horse back riding, hiking, picnics, camp fires and more.  A great place for a company retreat or a executive weekend training day mixed with the great outdoors and horses. Rent the “TOB” for an evening or day for family reunions, class reunions, weddings, rehearsal dinners, family holidays or birthday parties.

We are also proud members of a group of over 300 horse enthusiasts from the Northern Kentucky area that hold clinics on everything from trailer driving to horse shoeing. We have trail rides and horse shows. We also get together just to socialize and share stories. We are involved in educating on abuse and neglect and supporting Large Animal Emergency Rescue.


We also build and maintain trails and promote trail riding. We are a collaborative effort among the UK Cooperative Extension, the Conservation Service, horse owners, riders, trainers, educators and equine businesses from all breeds and disciplines and are an “all volunteer” group.

The Lazy K Ranch offers a large riding arena, 14 miles of trails,and a place to hold clinics or over-night trail riding weekends. We have a horse available FOR THE EXPERIENCED ANDIN-EXPERIENCED RIDER to enjoy. ......COME TAKE AROCKY MOUNTAIN HORSE TEST DRIVE!!
