I holidayed at Epona in early April and was part of the first group to stay at the Hotel Alcazar de la Reina in Carmona as part of the holiday. I was there for a week of High School and Classical Dressage training. It was an amazing week. The opportunity to learn on horses that have been so well schooled... More

My expectations were far exceeded in both the quality of the horses and the instruction. They do a great job of matching horse and rider personalities and ability levels. A great place for all ability levels. Everyone there is great at their job and at making you feel welcome. The techniques were a bit different than I was used to,... More

I spent a magical week at Epona in April 2015. Everything about the week far exceeded my expectations. The horses were stunning (A+), the instruction superb (A+), the hotel lovely (B+) and the entire Epona family the most delightful, kindest people ever (A+). From the moment I arrived at the airport to a warm, generous welcome by Fernando I knew... More

Dream come true for me. Have never had the chance to ride such quality horses. Fantastic temperaments , highly schooled schoolmasters performing all dressage moves, in a forward going way (with breaks)! The teaching is constructive, insightful and helpful. Our trail rides were through gorgeous countryside. The spring is filled with wild flowers and rolling green fields in Andalusia. I'm... More

If your are seeking to be able to accommodate half-pass in the canter, counter- canter as well as passages and piaffe on school master Andalusian which are both calm and forward this place is for you.

Superior riding instruction on quality, well-trained horses was just the beginning of my dream trip come true. The food served at the center was a wide variety of tasty healthy food with Spanish flare. The countryside trail rides were relaxing and filled with beauty. The staff, owners and instructors were friendly and created an atmosphere of home away from home.... More

First of all, I think this place is perfect for riders, especially dressage riders, or those who likes trail riding! I had an intensive dressage program. And I've learned a lot from those perfect andalusian horses and of course from trainer - Vivi! Some people who been same week as I did, had a few lessons with Soto, but I... More

I just returned from a week at Epona, in the middle of a 3 week trip to Spain. This was a spectacular experience. The facility is excellent. We stayed in the hacienda, which was charming. The food for lunch and dinner was some of the best we have had in Spain. The Garcia family was very hospitable and friendly. Fernando... More

November, 2014 was my second visit to Epona. My first week was in 2012, when I did the Train and Trail program, which was a dream come true and exceeded all my expectations. I did the Intensive program this trip, with the addition of the trail ride in Huelva on the beach of the Atlantic Ocean. This time, the Epona... More

Spent an amazing three days at this beautiful centre - and i am already trying to plan how I am going to get back :) As a serious and very enthusiastic dressage rider I was desperate to try and find some experience riding more advanced horses - something that is almost impossible to find in Australia. When I stumbled across... More
