Equestrian Centre

Standlake Ranch

From March 29th we are delighted to be open again and welcome existing clients back to their regular lessons.  Social distancing measures are still in place and safe covid practices are in operation.  For this point in time we are only able to offer new clients riding lessons if they are experienced riders who can ride safely and independently, or if, in the case of a new child joining they have an experienced parent or member of their family bubble who can assist them with mounting, adjusting tack and leading.  Please call to discuss the feasibility of starting or being added to our waiting list.



Standlake Equestrian Centre is one of Oxfordshire's long standing riding schools, with 24 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 covered arena, 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 instructor Angela Jackson (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.
