Equestrian Centre

Standlake Ranch

Standlake Equestrian Centre is one of Oxfordshire's long standing riding schools, with over 20 years of successful teaching.  

The riding school offers horse riding lessons and nature trail rides.  Our school is well situated near Witney and Oxford.  Children's riding lessons are our speciality.



Standlake Equestrian Centre has a purpose built indoor riding school and specialises in teaching children.  We have 8 stables, 40 x 20 INDOOR SCHOOL, A 60 x 25 outdoor arena and 20 acres of beautiful nature trail rides, totally off road.



The horses and ponies are well schooled and ideal for teaching riding lessons with friendly qualified instructors, and normally a maximum of 6 people per class. The Chief instructor is Suzanne Pillans (A.B.R.S. Prins dip & BHSAI) and freelance instructors Angela Jackson (A.B.R.S. IT),  Emily Murphy (A.B.R.S. IT), and Carly Harris (A.B.R.S. IT). The riding school is B.H.S & A.B.R.S. approved.

The A.B.R.S. Equitation and Stable Management Tests are available to all horse riding students twice a year and all students are trained through the riding lessons to prepare for each test.



Pony days are held every holiday and every half term where riders can also be trained in horse care and prepare for their upcoming tests along with riding lessons, games and loads of fun. The children are also able to experience other activities other than what is offered in their regular lessons.
