Diane Barber became an avid equestrian as a child, beginning with Quarter Horses in Pennsylvania. Years later, after relocating to Los Angeles, she fell in love with Spanish horses the moment she laid eyes on her Spanish Arabian, Bold Brahim ("Jesse"). "Because of my fascination with Jesse's Spanish lineage, I now travel regularly to Spain for dressage training with Olympic medalist Rafael Soto, which is a very high honor and dream come true for me," she says. "Horses have magically touched my soul all of my life." Diane had an "a-ha moment" while riding through Spain several years ago. "I realized that true bliss for me would be to merge my horse wold with my business world."
