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

I had really an excellent week at Epona, I came mainly to improve my riding skills and was not dissapointed, towards the end of the week, I've improved so much. Vivi was excellent in the manner she taught, profesional, super qualified, it was reallly an honor to have gotten such a high quality training. The horses were amazing, calm, well... More

I am a better rider because of my time at Epona... I just got back from a 6 day intensive riding course at Epona. I am a beginner rider (hunter jumper) and I can honestly say that my riding has made a 360 degree turn. I am a so much better rider...and, as a result, I have decided to continue... More

My husband and I spend a week at Epona Equestrian centre and happy to recommend the quality of the horses and instruction provided. The horses were well cared for, forward moving, and well schooled. While the instructor, ViVi (trainer) both knowledgeable and patient. My husband had little riding experience and was not particularly interested in dressage prior to our stay.... More

Highly Schooled The horses at Epona are expertly schooled and can genuinely be matched to a wide spectrum of riding levels from beginners to highly advanced dressage enthusiasts, as well as everything else in between. The horses are innately giving backed by a continuous nurturing environment propelled by the handlers who prioritise their welfare, both physically and emotionally. The way... More

Amazing dressage horses, excellent teachers, best cooking I've had in my life, beautiful hacienda, kind people! Just go there! As a serious dressage rider, before trying it, I thought all horse-related holidays were tourists-traps which would never fit my level. I was wrong! :)

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
