Reviews of Epona Stable at Yelp:
“I must admit that I have travelled all over Europe and many states in America and always stopped in the riding stables as sort of a sport being horseback riding that I enjoy and so it seemed the same when I came to Vancouver in Canada to explore what was the best in the riding field. At the hotel that I was staying at I asked the concierge if they had any recommendations and they said a riding stable called Epona Stable was very popular and the tourists had good reports from the stable. I called and asked if they could fit some riding lessons in for me and they were extremely polite and accommodating. I have ridden so much particularly in Europe so I must have sounded like someone grilling the staff and they answered every question almost gladly. I noticed that I could try an introductory lesson and that they also offered other packages so I wanted the five lesson to start because the head instructor and trainer is also a natural horsemanship expert which I found really special. I made my payment and the same day was contacted and the same day the five lesson dates were set! It just could not have been easier. I was met by Felicia at the gate and it was obvious pretty quickly that this woman lives for horses. I noticed all kinds of drawings of horses so the children must love the place too. Felicia brought a beautiful horse to me named Star and this horse looked like some of the German horses I have ridden, extremely gorgeous. I was impressed by the excellent shape of all the horses and she has enough room that they can interact and run in the huge grass areas. I was taken aback by the nature everywhere - mountains as the backdrop and various different bushes with the stable and a huge riding ring also on the stable's premises. Felicia began with the basics such as grooming and saddling and I found her knowledge simply fascinating. She knows Everything that she teaches - the why, where, and how. Literally. She is detailed and funny at times too. It was great to escape to a natural place fairly close to Vancouver and have this amazing individual share her love of the animals and the sport. When Star was saddled we went into a smaller riding ring and immediately Felicia was correcting the small things that I quite frankly had never learnt. Like I said, Felicia is so knowledgeable that I found she wasn't charging high enough for her lessons compared to what I have paid in some very nice riding stables for her professionalism and knowledge. I could write for an hour about her expertise and the wonderful lessons I continued with.
The one thing that struck me was how much Felicia cares and understands. We joked quite a bit and laughed with the horse and the horse's cute expressions.
As much as she is serious and reminds that safety is the most important - I laughed when she said "Safety is the bible here".
I thought that was funny but she is into safety big time like the many professional stables”
