Get your downward goat on and get over to Vail Stables for some goat yoga. Friendly instructor guides you through yoga poses, while adorable goats surround you. Fun for all ages.

The ride and view was gorgeous. I felt bad that my horse would slip on the muddy trails going up and down. These were not just trail horses, I had to guide him the whole way.
