Santolina Stables offers riding lessons and is a fully licensed family run horse riding stables situated on the outskirts of Wokingham. Established in 1990, Santolina has been built up over the last 25 years into a fun, friendly and busy stables with a unique atmosphere. All of our business has come via recommendation (we are the only riding stables currently entered into the Directory of Excellence) and we have seen many riders come through our ranks from the local area and further a field. We attract customers from all over Wokingham District, Reading & Bracknell as well as from Sandhurst, Yateley, Eversley, Camberley, Twyford, Hook, Fleet, Ascot, Sunningdale, Farnborough, Frimley, Bagshot, Maidenhead, Windsor, Thatcham, & even London! Many riders from Santolina have accomplished outstanding achievements within the industry. One pupil won a BHS award as one of the top five student riders in the country. Other riders have competed and won at local shows on both our horses and their own horses and ponies. Many riders have also pursued a career in the equine industry.
Santolina Stables has a friendly and encouraging approach to teaching people to ride. We specialise in teaching children and our instructors are skilled in developing riding technique whilst working on the basis that children will learn more quickly and effectively if they are enjoying a lesson or activity. Part of our ethos is to encourage children to have contact with the horses and develop knowledge of horse care as they progress with their riding.
Santolina Stables has a wide range of horses suitable for all types of rider, from beginner to advanced, and from child to adult. All horses used for lessons are carefully selected for their temperament and personality. Our ponies are famous for being ‘cracking little ponies’ and are ideal for children learning to ride.
We teach a wide range of ages and abilities currently and anyone is welcome. With two outdoor arenas (one floodlit) we can offer a variety of lessons weekdays, weekday evenings and weekends. These include group and private lessons, as well as activities such as stable management lessons and Mounted Games. Customers also have freedom and flexibility to ride as often or as little as they like with our unique group lesson structure. We also offer a variety of activities for children to enjoy especially in school holidays where as well as lessons we offer our renowned pony days and pony weeks, show jumping competitions exclusively for Santolina riders and Mounted Games tournaments.
