Having never taken dressage lessons before, I was looking forward to a week of training and trail riding on the magical Andalusians. I was not disappointed. Fernando's hospitality and Jane's cooking were great and the staff fantastic. I was impressed by the knowledge and patience of Kristina. Not only did I get a basic understanding of dressage, I learned a... More

All my riding life (some 50+ years) I've dreamed of a riding vacation. Epona completely fulfilled this dream. I cannot recommend it strongly enough, except to say: If you want a riding experience like no other GO TO EPONA! From the time Fernando picked me up at the Seville airport through the remainder of my stay - too short at... More

This is actually very first time I am writing a review on any website. My aim is to make people aware what can happen to them after they have been in Epona Riding Center. I hope that they learn something from my terrible experience. I had good time during my stay and I was happy with that place when I... More

I visited this wonderful location for a riding holiday with the intent to receive high quality, intensive dressage instruction. I was not disappointed! I was greeted at the airport by owner, Fernando, and enjoyed a short ride by car to the Hacienda. The training was excellent and I enjoyed Vivi's style of teaching. Ever patient and yet, appropriately demanding. The... More

If you want a plush, luxury hotel experience then stay in Seville. If you want to learn to ride (at any level from beginner to top class dressage), to stay in an historical hacienda and eat fabulous food for a week then try this out. I am unfit, middle aged and haven't been on a horse for many years and... More

I spent an absolutely amazing week at Epona and would go so far as to say that it was the best holiday experience I have ever had (and I've had a lot of holidays over the years). Earlier this year I started to learn how to ride (fairly late in life) and wanted to learn more complicated dressage techniques. Epona... More

My week at Epona exceeded all of my expectations. It was a total emersion experience. We participated in the Train and Trail program. Our typical day was Breakfast 900, 3 hour trail ride 10-1, lunch 230, then siesta/ rest/ pool, lesson 530, wine till dinner at 830. Somehow, we managed to fit in a trip to THE Spanish Riding School... More

Spent a relaxing time on the Train and Trail holiday at Epona in Early April, after several years away from riding. Both my trail horse and school horse were beautiful, responsive, forward-going and had lovely temperaments. Caty was an excellent teacher, with very clear explanations and lots of patience. Fernando was full of stories on the trail rides through fresh... More

It was a WONDERFUL holiday. The Garcia family are the perfect hosts. The accommodation, food and horse riding - the best. I would never have thought I could learn so much in one week in dressage................ The horses were patient, kind and lovely and it was hard to leave, but hope to return again. Thank you Sara
