MIDDLEVILLE, Mich. (WOTV) Children and teens learn skills for life while learning how to ride horses at Diamond Sahara Equestrian Services in Middleville. The facility offers riding lessons, teaching, and boarding. A main focus is teaching children to ride and compete.

Diamond Sahara won the Trainer’s Cup Award in honor of the 25th anniversary of the Equest Center for Therapeutic Riding in Rockford. The program challenged trainers in the West Michigan area to raise money for the Equest Center so it can continue to provide therapeutic riding to children.

Diamond Sahara says horseback riding teaches children leadership, compassion, and problem solving.
