If you want to experience what it feels like to ride soft, sensitive, well trained, and stunning PRE horses and learn from great teachers, go to Epona! Accommodation takes place in the nearby village, and the hotel is very comfortable. In the evenings you can have tapas dinner in any of the restaurants at the piazza. Fernando pics you up... More

I wasn't sure what to expect from my trip to Epona, having not ridden regularly since I was a child (20 years ago) and being a vegetarian (everyone says it's impossible to eat vegetarian food in Spain :-)). On both counts, I had nothing to fear from my stay at Epona. I was matched with two lovely horses, Caramelo (for... More

My booking and decision to attend the Epona Riding School was fairly last minute after another trip I had planned for the time fell through, and everyone was more than accommodating to fit me in on short notice (I booked direct through the Epona website). I was part of the last group to stay at the hacienda on site so... More

We just finished a great week of dressage lessons at this riders paradise. For someone from Indonesia it was quite embarrassing to get heat exhaustion when your Finnish friend withstands the heat just fine! But nonetheless it was a lovely lovely time with great horses, people and dogs! Linnea my instructor was super patient and the hosts from Jane the... More

In a warm family atmosphere in an old hacienda, Epona offered us a week of dressage with excellent instruction (thank you Vivi), well trained horses and the ability to reach some dressage level I was not expecting to reach. The complete team is continuously making their best to make this week a success, and our time in Epona very pleasant... More

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.
