Dressage stays

Dressage and Instructional Riding Holidays

On an Instructional riding holiday a good instructor and well-schooled horse can help you to improve your riding skills. Whether your interest lies in classical dressage or western riding; endurance or natural horsemanship; learning to play polo or simply improving your basic riding skills, there's a riding holiday to suit you. Classical dressage holidays are usually arena based, but learning to ride Western or experiencing your first endurance ride are generally done out on the riding trail. Improve your natural horsemanship skills on a ranch holiday in USA, practice piaffe and passage on a dressage holiday in Spain or experience the thrill of jumping cross country fences on a riding holiday in Ireland.

    Epona Equestrian Centre was just fabulous. Vivy, Fernando, Jane and Paz couldn't have made it more special. What a lovely friendly team, what fantastic horses and amazing tuition. I loved every minute of it and will definitely be returning.

    Once again Epona was a fantastic place to be. Fantastic stallions to ride, superb coaching from Vivi and Rafael Soto and a warm welcome from all the family and staff at Epona. It really is 'home from home' for me and have already booked my next trip
