Diettrich Farm Lessons


Our horseback riding lessons will make you hungry to learn more, thanks to Diettrich Farm's unique learning environment and approach. After you have proper horse safety and riding basics down, the real fun begins. A horse's feet are the portal to the next dimension of horsemanship. Learning how the rhythm and life in your body can influence the movement of a horse is extremely empowering.

Practice horsemanship while having fun developing riding skills and self-confidence. In a learning frame of mind, we focus on concepts, skills, and awareness, which are then applied to trail riding, playing games, and more. This higher dimension of horsemanship allows you to develop a new level of harmony with the horse, almost as if you were dancing.

Youth Foundation Class

Our Foundations Class is designed for beginners, ages 5-12. Students will learn to ride and take care of horses in weekly group lessons. During each lesson, students will learn about horse behavior and care, groundwork, and riding.

The focus will be on safety and understanding the horse’s perspective. We listen to our horses; they are the best teachers. The skills learned in the Foundations Class will apply to every aspect of students’ lives: communication, problem-solving, empathy, confidence, and leadership.

The class runs every Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. or 12:45 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. Please come dressed in comfortable long pants, weather-appropriate attire, and closed-toe shoes. If you have smooth-soled boots with a heel, such as Western or paddock boots, please wear those. Helmets will be provided.

Diettrich Farm Community

"My 7 year old son Klyde was very excited to go and sad when it ended a week later. Very good place to send your child."

Clyde Prince

"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."

Cindy Dooley

"It's really an amazing place to be. You can tell Lynn really loves what she does and she loves to share the wonderful world that is horses with her visitors. I highly recommend! Also, there is a BnB on the premises. It's so immaculate &charming. I can't rave enough!"

Ruby Rorschach

"There are so many great things I can say about Diettrich Farm. Such a beautiful place. LYNN IS THE OWNER, such a wonderful woman. Such a tranquil escape. The houses, trees, the whole package. I will for sure return."

Tina Norris

"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."

Brittany Peterson

"Our family of 5 (9, 7 and 5) had an amazing experience at Lynn’s farm. My children enjoyed helping and learned so much during their lessons with Lynn. She is so patient with a loving firmness that the kids responded so well to. We felt like family after our short stay!"
