I finally found a barn that is great for me and my horse! The care is phenomenal and the facilities are organized, neat and clean. The best feature however is Diane Little. If you are looking for a trainer that works to understand your horse and you, as a rider you have come to the best place. I have ridden at other facilities and the lessons are boring and routine and most of the time the trainers are talking to someone else and/or glued to their cell phones. Not Diane. You have 100% of her attention in a lesson. She asks you what you want to accomplish with your riding and she gets you there. I have accomplished things that I never thought possible with other trainers.
I bought my first horse four years ago right before going to college. We started as a pair that was completely unbalanced and without specific goals. Working with Diane helped me first to build a foundation of the basics and then to build confidence so that we were both more comfortable pushing ourselves and expanding our skills. Diane has helped me to create a partnership with my horse and always has my best interest in mind. I love the challenge of my lessons each week and I am constantly amazed at the improvements I see in my riding and in my horse’s abilities. I am so lucky that I found Diane – it has truly transformed me and my horse.

Diane and Cheryl are such a tremendous team, each and every day, they create a supportive learning environment that is embraced with happiness and fun, always ensuring that we have all we need to succeed both as riders and in overall care of our horses. Their dedication to our horses and to us as riders is the best of the best, consistently going above and beyond with their guidance, insight and patience. Diane's 1x1 lessons are exceptional. She provides us with the best opportunities to achieve our goals. She is always fully focused/committed on her riders achieving success, as well as finding the valuable learnings within our challenges/mistakes, which leads to even greater success/growth. I couldn't think of a better environment for my daughter to develop both as a rider and a person. - Susan L
