The seasoned trainers at Diamond View Farm teach beginner through advanced lessons, imparting the fundamentals of horse care to equestrians of all ages. During each 60-minute lesson, students learn varied skills such as tacking up their steeds, grooming, and proper riding technique. Riders also walk, trot, or canter across 130 acres of pastureland that house outdoor galloping grounds, a heated indoor riding area, and a runway to launch Pegasus. After their lessons, riders may want to visit Diamond View Farm’s stable of show horses, home to the renowned sire Master Class.
