    Magic is our miniature horse who can "magically" become a unicorn!  He loves kids, having his mane and tail "done", rides and birthday parties!

    Come meet and make friends with all of our 16 horses! Stay and ride, just stay, or day visit to ride on this gorgeous 25 acre farm to relax, reset, and enjoy the beauty of nature and horses. 

    Carriage Rides-info & rates


    An evening carriage ride is a  wonderful way to relax at the end of the day and enjoy the beautiful scenery.  It is also perfect for those who prefer a bench seat to a saddle but still wish to interact with horses and experience horse country the best way possible - from a horses point of view!

     ​Time-slots are available first come-first served. 

    Special event rides can be arranged, such as engagements, honeymoons, anniversaries, and birthdays.   Bring your favorite beverages!

    What is unique about riding at Diamond Oaks Farm? 

    • You will ride free-rein and are in charge of your horse rather than just walking a "zombie-horse" behind the tail of the horse in front of it on a preset trail in a long line of horses doing the same walk. 

    • Both English and Western riding are available.

    • Ages 2 and older will enjoy riding lessons and horseback riding in the company of a life-time horse career expert with only your private group of 1-6 riders.   

    • Discounted riding experiences are automatically applied for lodging, RV hookup, and camping guests

    • The option of a lesson one day followed by a trail ride a following day (guests recommend!) 

    • The option of an evening carriage ride to relax and enjoy a horse country tour after your time in the saddle. (BYOB)
