Welcome to Diettrich Farm, where dreams and opportunities meet. Our focus on the evolution of horsemanship is what sets us apart from other barns. We value the horse's perception, and we treat each horse as an ambassador for education and self awareness. With those values in mind, we provide a comfortable environment where the horse and rider can feel safe and stress-free. It is in this environment that you are able to truly develop a deep bond with the horse that leads to increased comfort, self-confidence, and enjoyment.
At Diettrich Farm, we pride ourselves on providing a top-notch riding environment to support our year-round programming for children and adults. Our 15-acre farm features a 160-by-60 indoor arena, large round pen, and direct access to 13 miles of groomed trails in the adjacent state park. We also have a very comfortable indoor retreat, event, and educational space with a kitchen and washroom—a great place to gather when weather is bad. We provide a heated wash rack, locked tack room, and plenty of grazing areas where you can sit and relax with your horse after a nice trail ride. Come join us!
To me, what matters most is the relationship between horse and rider. As an equine instructor, my goal is to help you find balance in the saddle, attune yourself to the horse’s rhythm, and learn how to communicate with your horse while riding.
"The Diettrich Farm is so much more than horsemanship but uses that as its platform to connect humans and animals (horses, frogs, chickens, dogs, cats, birds and more!). During her time at the Farm, our daughter became more confident, self-aware and independent, deepened her appreciation of nature, and developed new friendships from all over the country that endure."
"In the summer of 2020 I signed my daughter up for a week of camp. With COVID & lock down I was witnessing her spark diminish & her spirit start to crack. The first day of camp was literally a saving grace for her, each day I picked her up she didn’t even want to leave. She had so much to share about her activities & what she learned. I felt like she really had a connection to this & we signed her up for weekly lessons."
