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.

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.
