A wonderful, unique experience
Jun 2021 • Family
An amazing treat for the two girls who love horse riding - swimming with horses at JA Equestrian Center. Dodger was a super horse, calm and steady - he clearly enjoyed it too. The instructor, Sandrine, made the experience that much more enjoyable with her friendly, caring manner. I feel that a separate word on the stables themselves is needed. There is a very special atmosphere around the place. The animals look happy and cared for, whilst the grooms are genuinely gentle with the horses. Smiles and kindness all around!

Amazing riding lessons in a wonderful nature
Apr 2021
We spent 2 weeks in JA Palm Tree Court, very close to the riding stable and booked everyday really amazing and exciting riding lessons.

It was really a pleasure and a lot of fun improving our skills.

All the stuff is friendly and helpful, always with a smile on their face.

Sadrine, the German riding teacher deserves an extra "Thanks"!!

She pushed our riding skills in only some days to canter in circles. It was really amazing!!!!

She explains everything in a friendly and proper way and we couldn´t have succeeded without her patience and teaching skills.

We really regret to leave today! But we will come again in Autumn for sure.

Thanks al lot to the whole team,

Simone and Norbert

Most Amazing Equestrian Experience in Dubai
Apr 2021 • Family
Definitely WORTH IT (especially for beginners!) I loved every second of it. And I promise to go back again not only because of the experience but also the staff who are the most amazing!

Thank you so much to Ditto for being with me and giving me a really really fun time Swimming with horses especially to dodger. It was really nice doing stunts like standing at the back of Dodger. That was really one for the books! 😁 I will definitely come back because of this.

Thank you Vikash for touring us around the resort by a pony ride and helping my mom have a good time because she's a bit scared at first and got comfortable afterwards.😊

and lastly to a very friendly and accommodating receptionist of the stable, Melanie, thank you for assisting us during our stay. 🤗

RECOMMENDED!💯👍🏽

Best stables in Dubai
Apr 2021
I have been riding for several months now with Sandrine, I came to her with some confidence issues after I had a bad accident a few years ago. I had taken some classes at other stables but have never been able to gain back my full confidence until I came to Sandrine. She is outstanding as a instructor and additionally a lovely lady to be around. I have never seen any instructor as enthusiastic and determined as she is, she paces up and down the huge arena in any weather conditions and I can truthfully say that I never leave her lessons without learning something new. She challenges me but also allows me to feel safe and trusting of the horse and my capabilities. I have made big improvements in the short time I have been with her, and hope I can continue this. She has a great focus on proper technique which can be difficult to find here in Dubai.

Generally the whole stable is very friendly and take wonderful care of the horses, everyone working there is passionate about what they are doing which is great to see. I am excited every time I am there! Best stable in Dubai by far.

Top quality teaching, lovely atmosphere
Apr 2021 • Solo
I have been coming to JA Equestrian for a couple of years now and really love the place. Exceptionally friendly staff, professionally run with lovely horses which are very well cared for.
I have weekly lessons with Sandrine, who is an amazing instructor. I can really feel my riding improving, and she always challenges me, while making sure I have fun at the same time. She has helped me to be a lot more conscious of the small things I am doing (or not doing) and what impact that has on my riding. This has really improved my seat, my connection with the horse and my overall confidence. During the cooler months we have been doing a lot of jumping lessons, and I am becoming confident with planning strides, landing on the correct leg and various other exercises. I can't speak highly enough of the training I am getting.
Overall an excellent riding centre with a lovely atmosphere, highly recommended for absolute beginners up to experienced riders.

A Piece of Horsy Paradise!!!
Apr 2020
Paula Young, I am originally from Australia and lived in Dubai for 3 years. Early January my husband and I moved to London.
I attended the JA Resort Equestrian Centre twice a week over a period of almost 2 and 1/2 years learning dressage and improving my riding skills.
This morning, with heartfelt, I viewed some photos and videos from my experiences riding and being at the centre. I miss the horses, staff and the surrounds greatly!!
It is one of my more memorable, enriching and valuable times in my life. A little paradise nestled in the Resort. I greatly appreciated the care, knowledge, meticulously kept stables and professionalism of all the staff.
From the competent instructor I learnt about stable management, general knowledge of horses and the vast techniques and skills of dressage.
I have no hesitation in recommending the facility to friends and anyone who might query an excellent place in Dubai to learn how to ride.

Amazing!
Mar 2021 • Solo
I have been riding at JA equestrian centre for a year now and every week I still look forward to going. The horses are amazing and so well looked after. My instructor Sandrine has the patience of saint and is an incredible instructor! Explains everything so well and knows every single horse inside out, knows exactly what tips and tricks works for each of them, which shows how much she’s got to know them and cares for them! Explains everything perfectly and pays so much attention to detail which is a must when riding, she is so supportive and encouraging! Couldn’t ask for a better instructor or stables! Would definitely recommend!
