Standlake Ranch

Due to recent Government Directive The School is able to reopen with safe social distancing measures  in place, instructors will maintain a safe distance of 2m from clients.  While these measures are in place private and semi private lessons are being offered to experienced or existing clients, or in the case of a novice child assistance from a knowledgeable family member will be required during  mounting, adjusting tack and leading if needed.   Sadly pony days are not being run this holiday.   Stay safe and well.  



Standlake Equestrian Centre is one of Oxfordshire's long standing riding schools, with 23 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. Minimum age for pupils to join the school is age 4.  The Chief instructor is Suzanne Pillans (A.B.R.S. Prins dip & BHSAI) and freelance instructors Angela Jackson (A.B.R.S. IT), and Carly Harris (A.B.R.S. IT) and Amber Morris (BHS). 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.
