My name is Diane Mansour and I’m very happy to be working with my students at the lovingly renovated Corinthian Equestrian Center. As a trainer, I see my role in helping the dressage horse and rider gain their fullest potential as artists and athletes. Experience of more than fifty years, first as a young hunter/jumper, then as a dressage rider, breeder, and facility manager, convinces me that this happens through kindness, insight, and persistent work. With patient and informed guidance, I work with riders of all ages and at all levels through Prix St. George to engage successfully and joyfully in the discipline of classical dressage.
If you’re interested in taking dressage lessons at CEC, contact Diane at (845) 986-5762. For more information about riding lessons in another discipline contact Lee Dillon at (973) 617-7744 or through the Contact Form.
An equestrian since the age of 10, I have ridden and shown in the Hunter/Equitation and Jumper Divisions for many years. I currently teach all aspects of Equitation, Hunters and Jumpers with an emphasis on time proven horsemanship. My emphasis is on horse care, health and well-being first. My teaching stresses a balanced seat, kind, following hands, correct upper body and proper equitation at all times. I instruct that “proper position creates proper movement”. This prepares the rider to adapt to any situation and any horse.
Being a USEF (The United States Equestrian Federation) Judge for over 20 years gives me the experience of knowing how to pick a winner in the ring which gives me best insight as to how to prepare my students and horse to achieve that goal.
Corinthian Equestrian Center CEC LLC, formerly Whisper Wind Farm, is a fully renovated horse boarding and training facility, sitting on 40 majestic acres in historic Warwick, New York, fifty-eight miles north of New York City.
CEC offers a warm and fun atmosphere for boarding horses comfortably with extensive indoor and outdoor facilities for pleasure riding, training, jumping, and flatwork. The health of CEC’s horses is of the utmost importance with full group, semigroup, or individual turnout daily.
