First ever ride today, and Jodie had me trotting (although badly!!). Cannot recommend their stables enough, but such a friendly bunch of people. Can't wait for the next lesson, although I will need a few more on the nursery slope!!
Brilliant personal service. Accommodated our two little kids with very short notice. It was so good we went back again for further lessons. The horses they use are mostly rescued ones, which gives some reassurance of how well Jodie runs the school. Our kids really enjoyed themselves and they were total beginners. She has great patience with both riders and horses. Will go back again if we visit Javea next year. Thank you Jodie.
We are complete begineers at horse riding, we have never been before. We filled on a questionnaire got allocated a horse went round the training ring a couple of times and then went out round the back roads and through the fields nearby. we had a great time our horses were very placid and well behaved and the team at Hipica made us feel very welcome and the morning a lot of fun, we would go again.Type your paragraph here.
My husband and I visited for a carriage ride. The ride itself was wonderful and it was great to see how well the horses are looked after and what good condition they are all in. Many of the horses are rescued- well done Jodie and David. Thoroughly recommended.
We are regulars and Jodie never, ever, ever disappoints. Great hipica - great horses, great tack, great setting. Thanks as always.
I found Hipica Ondara online and just turned up early in the morning, Jodie asked me what I could do and had a bit of a chat and a lesson/play about in the sand school, had a good trot and canter around and even saw some of the tricks Jacobo could do! We arranged a hack for the next day which was just Jodie and I. Jodie asked how my jumping was, I replied with "never tried it" and she taught me quickly out on the hack which was incredibly exciting and fun! The third day we went for another early morning hack with more fun and tackling any problems that stood in our way and Oscar was more than happy to jump a little higher than he needed to, but I was always in safe hands! Jodie took me for a cross country lesson in the afternoon and it was fantastic. Never jumped before but now I'm pretty confident and I'm even booking my next holiday to go out to see Jodie, David and all the horses (and the donkey) again!
I also went for a ride in Barcelona but that was really disappointing AND expensive compared to the amount of fun and the amount I learnt over at Hipica Ondara.
Personally, I would 100% recommend this place to anyone who can already ride at an intermediate or higher level or would like to learn how to ride! The surrounding areas are beautiful and I honestly cannot say a single bad word about any of it.
It's touching to see how well they look after all the horses and hearing about the backgrounds. Their hearts are truly in this and I can see the passion behind it all.
Thank you guys so much for absolutely everything and for making my time there so memorable. I'll definitely be back to come and see you soon!!
Yesterday I went on a fantastic hack through orange groves and the beautiful countryside surrounding the Hipico Ondara. Jodie and David are very friendly and lovely people. I spent about 15 minutes in the sand at the Stable getting used to the horse before we set out and as I had done these types of hacks a few times before, I was given freedom on the ride to just enjoy it. I'm sure Jodie would have been closer at hand for more nervous riders. I cannot recommend this family run stables highly enough. The horses are loved and cared for to an impeccable standard. Jodie offers a fantastic range of lessons and services for the whole family no matter what your ability. For the rest of the family, the mall is 2 minutes away and the beach is 15 minutes away (recommend Las Marinas).
We were in Denia for a weekend with my boyfriend and looked for a place to do horse riding. I am an experienced rider and he is a very beginner. So we went to Hipica Ondara ( which was easily found thanks to Google Maps) to see a small yet well-maintained stable. The horses are all rescued and you can see how happy they are now, which is a pleasant sight. Jodi was caring, thinking what would be the greatest fit for us but also for the horses. We did a 2-hour trek, followed by a bit of canter/trot once we came back, because of the restricted possibilities in the short 2-hour trek. However, if you choose a longer trek then you can go to the mountain and galop. She explained the basics to my boyfriend and I believe he got much more confident being on a horse after this session! Jodi and her father are extremely lovable people, we will definitely come back when we return for the summer!Type your paragraph here.
Super buitenrit gehad net Jodie! Lieve paarden die allemaal uit het rescue programma komen. Ze worden goed verzorgt. De ervaring zelf is heel compleet. Het borstelen, zelf opzadelen etc. Onwijs goede tips gehad waar ik echt iets mee kan! Hele leuke dag gehad. Een echte aanrader :)
Hipica Ondara Riding School Equines (H.O.R.S.E)
We rode with Jodi and Amanda last week. It was fun and we'd do it again. We got there eventually (with our broken Spanish asking random old guys where it was). And we met Jodi's dad, who is hilarious! He's informative and fun. Then we got fitted for helmets, and they even have my husband some boots because he had only brought toe shoes in vacation. Afterwards, we got a riding lesson which was great. And finally we went on a 2-hour ride with the ladies. It went through a little trail, orange & almond trees, and roads. It was super hot out, but very relaxing too. All three of us (teen horse-living daughter included) enjoyed it very much.
My wife & daughter have been coming here for about a year now & my daughter Sophie always looks forward to seeing/riding her favourite horse Beau. They have done Hacking out & Lessons. This is a very well kept yard with lovely well mannered horses. My wife hasnt ridden for quite a few years & last summer Jodie managed to persuade her to get back into riding which she is really enjoying again A great place to come lovely people & horses
My daughter has been having weekly lessons at Hipica Ondara for nearly 6 years and loves it, she was a complete beginner when we first discovered horses, and she has gained such a high level that when she rides at other stables while on holiday in the uk, she receives compliments, which are all down to Jodie and her very high standards which she has for both riding and stable management. The stables have horses for all different levels of experience and can cater for most needs. If you have ridden once and suddenly think you are John Wayne, Jodie will ultimately decide on your true level, and probably save your life, so unless you can take true critisim dont bother going to Hipica Ondara and save everyones time, the saftey of the riders and horses always come first.
Absolutely loved my experience at Hipica Ondara. Lovely staff and beautiful horses. Amazing lessons for the everyone!
En fantastisk upplevelse - att rida bland apelsinodlingar och mandelträd på fina hästar. Detta är ett måste om man befinner sig i Ondara/regionen och lätt det bästa jag gjorde på hela min semester. Rekommenderar speciellt att ta en långritt upp i bergen. Hästarna är räddningshästar och välutbildade (prova en spansk skritt eller lite fiesta tricks för den som vågar :-). Det är smidigt att boka och Jodie är en underbar värdinna - du känner dig väl omhändertagen på denna hipica. Tack för en fantastisk upplevelse!
Lessons and a hike for my oldest and my wife. While the were away nice chat and good company. Jodi is super dedicated to her horses and wants everybody to ride well, very responsible.
