Let them tell you!
The family is the best and you will never find more honest, well trained horses!
I cannot recommend them highly enough. This is the second time I have been to Epona (and I will make sure I go at least once a year to brush up on my riding). They have recently moved to a new location around 700 meters from the old location and it is FANTASTIC!!!
It is situated on a hill so even in August, when it was 40 degrees centigrade, it did not feel too hot in the covered arena as there always seems to be nice breeze blowing. The horses are of superb quality and highly schooled which makes it such a great opportunity to get to ride horses of this high calibre. They also have horses suitable for novices as well as trail horses.
The tuition by Vivi is excellent as she manages to get the best out of each rider to make improvements and send them away with tools to use when back at home. Another bonus is that you stay in a beautiful hotel in the oldest town in Europe namely Carmona, this means that you can combine the riding with some culture in the evenings by walking around in this gem of a town. The hotel has a saltwater swimming pool, restaurant, bar etc
It is only 15min away from EPONA and they collect you every morning and drop you back after the riding has concluded for the day. The lunch at Epona which is prepared daily by the cook is delicious, a home cooked 3 course lunch with wine (if you wish) every day!
Oh and finally, its only 30min from Seville’s airport to Carmona and Epona is in the middle of the two. You should really visit to check it out.
Dear Fernando, Jane, Vivi and Caty. It was indeed and honor for me to write my story Vivi and my history about Andalucia. My time with you at Epona has changed my life since the first time in 2002 (and every time I return it is better!). Thank you for being my spanish family. Lucky me to have you in my life. Love, Diane.
Had a wonderfull week at Epona! Lovely horses whom are a pleasure and a virtue to ride with. I learned a lot thanks to Vivi and Sherree who are great instructors and had a lots of laughs thanks to Fernando and the other guests! It was a great honour to be able to meet Rafael Soto and having a lesson from him. Big thanks to Delfin and Albeitar for being such great horses, I will miss them big time in Belgium! Can’t wait to go back again and learn much much much more from everyone 🙂
FAB-U-LOUS !!!! Loved Epona, loved Spain, wish I could live there!
Would I recommend Epona Spain? Absolutely! 5 out of 5 for Jayne and Fernando’s so well trained horses, great instructors, hospitality, train and trail itinerary, food, accommodation in Carmona, etc. I WILL BE BACK!
Hola, I came to Epona in January for the Intensive Dressage Clinic with Rafael. I learnt so much from both him and Caty, and I feel that my riding at home has improved so much. I would be very interested in coming back for your new programme – the week’s dressage and work-in-hand.
An absolutely professional equestrian experience for fun or development of your riding skills in a relaxing environment with the chance of making new friends throughout the world.
The horses are so well trained and magestic.The instruction is kind and forward thinking.I have met other riders who share the same passion and drive and are very supportive.
If you want to improve your riding skills or just enjoy hacking out amongst olive groves or cantering along miles of beautiful beach, you should book with Epona. This is the only BHS registered riding school in Spain, the professionalism and hospitality of the team is second to none when it comes to making sure that your holiday is taylored to suit your riding skills and expectations. I could not recommend it enough, so much so I have booked again for 2017.
Best dressage boot camp ever. For me going from showjumping to dressage Epona gave me the best jump start. The coaches are knowledgeable and top notch. The Andelusians are just my favourite. Food, scenery everything about it is special. Hope to go next year again.
What a wonderful experience. Beautiful horses, well schooled, in fabulous condition and happy. And wonderful patient and supportive instruction. Thank you Vivi, Catia, Pas, Jane and Fernando! We will be back soon!
