Welcome to North Star Stables

North Star Stables is a teaching and leasing stable located 35 minutes from Mpls/St Paul in Stacy, MN. We do NOT offer trail rides to the public. We welcome the mature rider! We offer horseback riding lessons for all ages, horse leasing, along with adult and children’s activities throughout the year. Our goal is to offer a variety of opportunities to learn the fundamentals of becoming a confident rider, with qualified instructors and hands-on teaching that encourages riders to accomplish individual goals, build confidence and have fun while promoting all-around safety, horse care, and horsemanship.


We welcome riders of all ages and experience levels from novice to experienced.  North Star Stable is a family friendly, non-judgmental, no drama teaching and leasing stable that strives to give you the best horse experience possible!


Kid's MEA Horse Clinic!  


It’s that time of year to register for North Star Stables Kid’s MEA Horse Clinic!

Need a break from the kids?  Kids need a break?  It’s been a rough year for parents and kids, here’s a perfect outdoor activity that will make everyone happy! 

This 2 day clinic is for children ages 6-17.  No experience is necessary to attend. Activities suited to all levels of riding ability. 

Each child will be assigned a horse or pony matched to their riding ability for clinic. During the 2 days children will learn to groom a horse, saddle and bridle, mount and dismount, learn what riding aides are, ride at the walk and trot and learn basic arena exercises. Riding and working with horses empowers children and helps them to gain confidence and build core strength. Here at North Star Stables, we emphasize safety! All children should wear boots or footwear with a heel. Helmets will be provided unless you wish to bring your own. Each day your child should dress for the weather and bring a lunch and beverage.
North Star Stable has been teaching children horsemanship for over 13 years!
