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

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
