Riding Lessons

We offer lessons for all ages and riding abilities, in both western and English riding. We have experience in gaming, barrel racing, dressage, jumping, pleasure, and general horsemanship. We schedule our lessons for one hour. Lessons are typically done in a 2-4 rider group format with other riders of similar age and riding ability.

Riding Lesson: $40

Horse Camps

We are very proud to offer a fabulous horse camp program that offers a safe, fun, and friendly learning environment for young riders in a group setting. We offer half-day (3 hour) camps, full day camps (5-6 hour) camps, and little kid camps as well. Our camps are very limited in group size and typically fill weeks, if not months, in advance!

Not only will each camper get the opportunity to ride, learn, and have fun, but they will also be able to simply enjoy spending a fun day on a farm that is home to many horses, ponies, goats, chickens, ducks, a ferret, and a potbelly pig!

If you have a group of at least 4 riders that would like to set up a private half- or full-day camp, please feel free to reach out to us at enchantedhollowstables@gmail.com to get something set up.

You MUST secure payment in order to reserve your spot in a camp. 

Mentoring Days

We offer the full horse and ranch experience in a very fun and cost efficient package. You assist in running the ranch and will get to ride as well. Students ranging from kindergarten-aged children to adults can come to the farm and help with daily chores, maintenance, care of animals (including chickens, bunnies, pot belly pigs, goats, horses, etc.), grooming, and receive a riding lesson (which occasionally includes a trail ride, weather permitting!). Mentoring days usually include an arts and crafts activity. Hours vary.

This is a great option for kids during summertime or on school holidays where they cannot be left at home alone while the parents are at work.

Driving Lessons

With around 100 National Championships won by the Sansevere family over the last dozen years, we are happy to help you get started with your driving career. With award winning experience in pleasure, country pleasure, western pleasure, roadster, park harness, fine harness, and chariot.

Our lesson includes the use of a cart, harness, and experienced pony. You will learn by driving one of the Sansevere’s National Champion miniature horses or ponies.

We offer pasture and stall board at our 75-acre facility located in Buffalo, Minnesota. We provide shelter, automatic waterers, 24/7 access to hay, and daily hands-on checks to be sure that all the horses are in good shape. For stall boarders, grain and shavings are provided. We offer single and double width stalls.

Double Stall Board: $550

Training

 

Bob and Mary’s daughter, Samantha, offers training services to a limited amount of horses or ponies per month. Sam has had a lot of success in taking in horses that have had limited handling and no formal training, and training them into kind, trustworthy, honest mounts. Her passion is training small ponies to be safe for very young children to handle and ride, but she works with horses or ponies of all sizes. We can provide references upon request.

Training Fee: $650/month

The above training fee includes board ($300 value) and 5 rides/training sessions (approx. 1 hour+ long) per week.

Trail Rides

We will saddle up one of our trustworthy and experienced trail horses for you, and take you out on a 30-minute guided trail ride on our private, on-site trails.

Trail rides are done at a walk only. We suggest taking at least one riding lesson prior to going on a trail ride if you have no prior riding experience. You will have much more fun if you are comfortable on the horse!

Rate Per Person: $45
