the art of riding

Actually, there’s a little more to riding than keeping a horse between you and the ground. Effective communication is key to good riding. Whether you’re moseying down the trail or coaxing maximum performance from a top equine athlete, the way you communicate with your horse defines you as a rider. At Woodloch Stable, we pride ourselves on teaching a solid foundation of communication and understanding that will translate to any riding discipline.

A Great Place to Ride!

Conveniently located less than 30 minutes from downtown St. Paul, Woodloch Stable is one of the largest boarding facilities in the Twin Cities metro area. We welcome all breeds and disciplines! With our two indoor arenas, outdoor arenas, jumping arena, one-mile track, and trails, we have plenty of space for most any equine activity. We're situated on 180 acres of fields, woods, and trails.

Woodloch Stable was founded by lifelong horseman Dan Ramberg. It's been a family-run business for over 25 years, with three generations of Rambergs living on site. That means you can count on consistent, quality care from experienced professionals—with a family touch.

Here at Woodloch, we pride ourselves on maintaining a relaxed, comfortable, and supportive learning environment. We have customers of all ages and experience levels. Everyone is welcome, from casual trail riders to serious competitors. Our experienced, friendly staff is available to make sure you get the help you need.

Youth Daycamp

We have one of the most fun and educational programs around! Our comprehensive week-long camp covers many different riding disciplines, including western, huntseat, bareback, and trick riding. Each student is responsible for a horse throughout the week, with structured lessons and supervised practice rides daily.

Tiny Tots Lessons

Lessons are now available for children ages 3-7! If you're looking for something more structured than just a pony ride, our Tiny Tots lessons are a fun and inexpensive way to introduce young children to horses. Your child will work one-on-one with our instructor to learn basic grooming, leading, and riding skills on appropriately-sized ponies.

A Handfull of Good Horses

In 1980 Dan and Elaine Ramberg opened Woodloch stables with the intent of putting "some food on the table." We started with 22 stalls, a hand full of good horses and a truck and a trailer.

Over a 32 year period Woodloch has grown to 98 stalls for boarding, training and lessons. We currently have 2 indoor arenas, 2 outdoor arenas, a one mile track for exercising and leisure riding one larger outdoor arena that has many horse shows and the annual Minnesota high school rodeo Finals. We have held the MN Special Olympics for 15 years. Our arena has hosted national celebrities for clinics and symposiums.
