Meet our Trainer: Dione Casey

Not only does Dione oversee the daily care of our horses, she also provides horse & rider training and instruction. Dione utilizes her keen eye and comprehensive approach to assess each horse and rider on an individual basis. Understanding that there is no cookie-cutter approach to learning of any kind, Dione applies her vast skill set to tailor training and instruction to meet the needs of each horse and rider combination. The horses always come first. Dione believes that keeping our horses happy in mind, body, and spirit also keeps them healthy, sound, and successful in their work.

Riding Instruction

Dione offers lessons in Balanced Seat Equitation for ages 7 +

With an understanding of child development, Dione prefers to start students at an age where their cognition, attention, and muscle coordination will allow them to get the most out of their lessons. The first lesson is always done on the ground and will go over proper grooming and tacking. Please arrive at least 25 minutes ahead of your scheduled ride time to ensure plenty of time for grooming and tacking. A waiver must be signed prior to any lessons.
