Diane enjoyed the high honor of attending the Real Escuela del Arte de Ecuestre in Jerez, Spain for a 2-week invitational dressage training program with 2004 Olympic silver medalist Rafael Soto (March 2008). In addition to Doma Classica (classical dressage), Doma Vaquera (Spanish cowboy dressage), carriage driving and work-in-hand were a part of the exciting and challenging curriculum. This was Diane's second 2-week intensive training course with Rafael in Spain which will be featured in Dressage Today's February 2009 issue. She is looking forward to returning for another training clinic with him at Epona in Carmona, Spain in November, 2009. Viva España y los caballos de España!
