Our Team


We are professionals in equestrian sports with a perfect balance of expertise. The common theme among us? A love for horses, equestrian sport and attention to detail when working with our guests and riders. Meet our team below.

Dagmar - Owner

Dagmar is the founder of a globally successful solar energy company. She is no longer involved in the day-to-day management of the business and now devotes her time to her passion: Iberian horses. In 2017, Dagmar bought her Lusitano stallion, Ulysses, and embarked upon her dressage education with our Maestro instructor, Ismael Arroyo. Thanks to the help of her excellent teacher, Dagmar now rides several of the higher dressage lessons, as well as the lessons of freedom dressage.

"For me, it's ideal if you can do all the lessons with your horse in three different ways: on the the saddle, with and without bridles and in freedom from the ground."
Ismael Romero Arroyo

Ismael - Partner

Many of the show world’s most extraordinary horses were educated at Ismael’s stable.


Indeed, none other than Antonio Bautista, one of the true greats to have come out of Andalusia in the world of dressage and Alta Escuela,  encouraged Ismael’s interest in riding and training these beautiful animals. Over the years, Ismael has mastered the dressage and freedom dressage training skills and today there is no lesson that he can’t teach a horse.

Wiebke - Riding Instructor

In 2019, Wiebke joined the team at Yeguada La Pasión as a trainer and instructor.


Speaking upon her appointment, Dagmar said: “We are so happy to welcome Wiebke on board. In her, we have a great trainer and riding instructor who can professional train our stallions and help our riding student progress.”


Wiebke discovered her passion for professional equestrian sports at an early age. She made her professional education to become Pferdewirt and passed her Trainer C license with honors.


Today, under her tutelage and guidance, ambitious riders can progress rapidly at Yeguada La Pasión.

Edda - Event Manager

Prior to joining the team, Edda organized conferences for the automotive industry in Berlin. At the stud farm “Yeguada la Pasión” she is fortunate enough to combine her passion for event management with her love for the equestrian world.


Edda is responsible for looking after our guests and planning our wide range of courses and is looking forward to welcome many horse lovers on the property. Edda will make sure that your stay with us is as comfortable as possible.
