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.

So happy to have found my love of horse riding back at this stables. Sandrine is a fantastic instructor who challenges me each week in my riding making it fun and exciting. I love her lessons. I would 100% recommend this stables to new and experienced riders. The horses are well looked after by the grooms also.

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.

The children had lessons each week and even swam with their horses. Staff were friendly and accommodating and really went the extra mile to provide a first class experience.

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.
