INICIO, EPONA - Equestrian Center

Classical Dressage & High School Training

This is a six night, six day holiday designed for riders with a good level of ability. It's for those who have a great passion for Dressage and are ready to work hard for a week to really get a "push on" with their riding. As well as this, it is aimed for people who are not only interested in the Classical Dressage ways of riding, but also in the procedures used for training these magnificent horses. This is a unique opportunity, not easily found at other establishments. Guests will be immersed in the day to day riding and training that goes on at Epona. It's a great chance to get a real good feeling of the sensitive Andalusians and Iberian horses, trained to High School level, and to enjoy some of the advanced movements, such as Passage, Piaffe and Spanish Walk, which even very good riders don't often get a chance to experience. This programme includes many private lessons, one of which will be with Olympic medallist Rafael Soto, semi private lessons, ground work sessions (working on training piaffe, passage and Spanish walk) and lunge sessions, working on improving the classical seat. Most of the lessons will take place in the morning leaving most aftemoons free for guests to enjoy some shopping or sight seeing in the nearby towns, if they wish, or, altematively, to stay at our facilities just relaxing or watching the afternoon lessons and other riding that might be taking place. (In fact, some guest often opt to join these lessons as an extra if places are available).
