Horseback Riding and Goat Activities with Vail Stables
Goat yoga is an amazing experience for those who want to unwind, laugh, and relax while attempting to do the downward dog with a young goat or several winding around and between your limbs.
Enjoy a scenic ride on mountainous terrain, through a leafy-green Aspen forest with wide open viewpoints of the Gore Range, Vail’s ski slopes on down to Beaver Creek. Join us on a ride, and get in touch with nature!
This technical horseback ride travels through endless Aspen trees, Lodgepole pines, thick foliage and wildflowers, while offering two amazing, wide open viewpoints of the mountains from the Gore Range down to Beaver Creek.
Goats? Wine? What? Yes! It’s incredibly fun to enter a pen with 5 or more goats and a glass of wine. Their goat-like behavior entertains and delights. They’ll pose for your selfie.. If you’re bringing children, they can enjoy Goats & Soda.
Our Rocky Point Trail ride is perfect for all ages! This scenic ride gives amazing views of Vail Valley Gore Range & more. There is an abundance of sunshine and a scarcity of cliffs and mountain lions on this multi-dimensional ride.

Treat Yourself to the Ultimate Adventure
Visited twice in 3 days- so much fun!
“We booked a family trail ride our first day of vacation in Vail- it was so great- horses were very sweet and gentle, scenery was gorgeous, ride was very relaxing. Then we found out they have Goga (Goat yoga), and the girls HAD to come back for that, so day 3 of our trip we were back at Vail Stables for a really fun session of goat yoga with the sweetest goats and great yogi leading the session. Highly recommend both experiences!!”
Goat Yoga so much fun!
“My daughter convinced me to sign her up for goat yoga. We got there and all decided to join her as a family. It was so much fun. Amy was the instructor and was awesome. She gave us a nice workout and gave us plenty of time to interact with the goats. The goats were sweet and fun. Highly recommend. We may try to do it again before our vacation ends.”
Excellent Beginner Ride
“Having almost no horseback riding experience, 2 hour Vail Stables tour was perfect for our family with 2 tweens/teens. Climb into forest was manageable, not scary at all, and views were amazing. Horses in beautiful condition and very well trained. On our ride we hardly did any directing, in fact, we could have actually handled going faster.”
Best ride we’ve been on. Great route and overall great experience.
“Great experience from the minute we checked in. Our guide was Ellen and she was terrific. Got us ready and off we went on a fantastic 2-hour ride. Great pics along the way. Never considered about the horses or trails and we got up and down the mountain with incredible views and great memories. Highly recommended! Do the 2-hr ride. well worth it!”
“We decided to go for a horseback riding after my kids (10 and 12 years old) insisted… my husband didn’t want to come but somehow we convinced him. We all loved it!!! The horses are so perfectly train that you literally don’t need to do anything… it was a great experience and a great way to see Vail from a new perspective! Will definitely be back.”
