Happy riders

Had never ridden a horse before, was in fact frightened by them. Sarah got me up to a trot, and I even got a canter on my first lesson. She was amazing, and I've been going every week now for about 12 weeks. I love her teaching, and she is a pro at what she does. I would recommend her to anyone. It's in a beautiful location, and you really feel great when out at her lodge. She's never made me feel uneasy, safety is always first, but she will push you to improve. Love it. I'm now a weekly rider!

I love riding at Diamond Lodge Equestrian! I have been riding one year. When I started I did not know anything about how to handle care or even how to ride a horse. Having Sarah as a teacher is an awesome experience. Sarah makes learning to ride fun and the lessons are dynamic. I would highly recommend learning to ride here 🙂

Diamond lodge is a great place to ride. I have ridden here for 5years having group and private lessons and Sarah is a great instructor, she knows when to push you to improve and understanding when your not feeling so brave. The horses are good and safe and it's great to see the kids learning here get the opportunity to go to pony club and shows. Wish I'd had that opportunity when I was young and learning 🙂

My daughters 21 & 19 have been riding with Sarah for 9 years. It has been the best riding experience for both of them and thanks to the lessons their riding skills have come along in leaps and bounds. Both have competed on Sarah's horses and thanks to her instruction, have been very successful. Both my daughters sing Sarah's praise and love the horses and environment at Diamond lodge

I bring my daughter to Sarah for private lessons on her own pony. Sarah is knowledgeable, friendly & Stacey loves her lessons and looks forward to them. Her riding & confidence has improved heaps
