"Words cannot express how grateful I am to this mare Helvetia and her wonderful owner Jennifer! I would not be continuing in my growth in my riding without both of these amazing ladies in my life."

Maggie Knowles


"Jennifer is fantastic! She is sensitive and accommodating and approaches each horse as an individual, meeting them in their comfort zone. And they respond beautifully and willingly. Lovely to see her work her magic."

Avery Smith


"Diamond Oaks Farm is an amazing place for horses and people alike. Jennifer Schuck is the consummate horse person who is all about the horse; their care, training and can turn a horse out better than anyone I know! (She helped put herself through college by body clipping and braiding horses and has groomed for the United States Equestrian Team at the Pan American Games). She is flat out sharp as a tack, kind, and has a very keen eye regarding horses. I left mine in her care when I went back to WI and she drove and worked them in my absence. Generous and thoughtful as is her partner Jami Walker."      Mary Ruth Marks


"FANTASTIC experience!!! My daughter and I had the honor of staying three days on our girls trip. We spent a day with Jen learning all about the horses and riding! She is an incredible woman with the patience of a saint! She is awesome dealing with the "city slicker", to the most experienced! DONT PASS THIS UP!!!
Thank you Jen for sharing your life with us and making us feel like family!"

After spending three nights at Diamond Oaks Farm, we couldn’t stop talking about the experience. Jenn and Jaime are not only the nicest Airbnb hosts you could imagine but they also maintain a clean space for guests to feel at ease. They have the sweetest horses and pups along the property to interact with at anytime creating an incredible way to find social interaction while we are socially distancing due to COVID19. Chris who lives in the camper next to the Luxury Suite was friendly the moment we arrived. He enhanced our experience by showing us how to interact with the horses and he allowed us to tag along with him to feed the horses dinner. Jenn gave us riding lessons and taught us fundamental techniques that were very easy to understand. Jenn knows exactly how to explain information about horse riding to make you feel confident and knowledgeable. Miriam brought us trail riding the next day; teaching us how to connect with the horses. Learning from Miriam was not only a lesson on horseback riding, but it was a lesson on how to feel a bond with a horse and how to interact respectively with them. We couldn’t have asked k for a better experience to sink in and to feel connected with nature, sweet people, and animals.           - Liz and Sean

"Jennifer Schuck does everything and anything horses, and does it well! Jennifer trains horses from the initial start and progresses their training for amateurs to ride them easier. She gives lessons to people of all ages, transports horses, teaches Western, Dressage, Eventing, Obstacle Maneuvering, etc. Jennifer is teaching me Dressage lessons, focusing on balance and biomechanics."


"Jennifer has given me confidence! She transported me and my horse to the trail, guided me, and gave me horse riding tips along the way. We have talked about Jennifer hauling my horse to a horse show and giving me coaching during the day of competing. This is my goal! I can't say enough about this gifted equine expert."

"I took lessons as well as taught students with Jen at Schuck Equestrian for two years. Jen is an excellent teacher and is great at helping students develop a feel for what their horses are doing and how the riders position can improve to make the partnership more successful. She has a wonderful eye and can zero in on the one or two corrections which will have the greatest impact. I loved riding and working with Jen."  

"Jennifer was the best as teacher of us and trainer of our horses. My son and I ad our 4 horses thrived under her care. We were very sad to lose her when she moved to Florida! She also hauled our horses several times and they arrived bright and happy every time!"


"Great group of fun riders, horses and friends.. Jennifer can get inside your horse's and your brain to make a cohesive pair.  Plus, many opportunities to show and go on equine adventures!"

Kids love horseback riding at Diamond Oaks Ranch Hotel

It was an amazing  family weekend get away.  The break we needed.  The kids loved the horses and didn’t want to leave them!   

"The RV is located on a beautiful horse farm. Jami and Jennifer are wonderful hosts who will go above and beyond to ensure a pleasant stay. The owners are also a great source of local info in case you need recommendations and, if you are interested in riding, offer lessons, guided tours, and carriage rides. You are free to walk about the farm and will probably find yourself escorted by dogs Bella and Sadie. Great for families."   Kris
