My daughters joined JA equestrian seven months ago after having ridden at several different stables in Dubai. This is undoubtedly the loveliest riding establishment we have found. The stables itself is small, immaculate, the horses are very well cared for and the staff are very friendly. Our instructor, Sandrine, has been fantastic! Under her teaching, they have learned so much in such a short space of time. Not only has their competence improved enormously, their confidence has grown so much too. She an excellent teacher and her manner with the children is wonderful. She is friendly, patient and very good at explaining different techniques. She also has a wonderful bond with the horses, and leads by example, showing how to handle, care for and love for these wonderful creatures. Furthermore, I have also been taking lessons with Sandrine. She has been an excellent adult teacher as well and I can’t recommend her more highly. We have developed a great friendship as she is very easy to chat to and I enjoy her company. If you are looking to learn to ride as a beginner or improve existing skills, Sandrine is undoubtedly the best person for the job! JA Equestrian is a wonderful place to ride.

We have just left the JA Resort after a wonderful family holiday there . One of the absolute highlights for my 10 year old daughter was the horse riding centre . She has not ridden for a while but under the expert supervision of Sandrine she achieved some of her best rides . Sandrine built my daughters trust and confidence in riding in a fun , engaging yet professional way. She absolutely knows how to get the best out of riders …. And was fantastic with a young client ! Thank you for some wonderful holiday moments - we will be back !

Unforgettable experience for those loving horses. Michele welcomed us in the very nice equestrian center. The beach is just next to the center and children really enjoyed the experience. Also, the photographer of the hotel was present to catch this incredible moment.

My daughter (age 10) went swimming this morning on Ruby. Sandrine was the instructor. It was a fabulous experience for a keen young rider and also for her younger sister who was allowed to sit on Ruby whilst we took some fabulous photographs. For anyone who loves horses this is a truly memorable experience. I can’t recommend Sandrine more highly - she is a lovely lady and so knowledgeable; brilliant with both the horse and our children. They felt totally safe and we all had such an amazing time. Thank you so much Sandrine x

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!

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

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!💯👍🏽

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.
