Training + Lessons

Bernadine Diers Training offers a range of dressage training services to help students achieve their goals, whether that is cantering for the first time, improving OHSET event results, or earning a USDF silver medal – we are here for both the casual and competitive horseback rider alike!

Serving the wider Portland, OR area through lessons and training at River Run Equestrian Center, our thoughtful and classical dressage training is for riders of all levels and goals. With her multi-disciplinary equestrian background and ability to give clear and personalized riding instruction, Bernadine also regularly works with Hunter/Jumper, Western Dressage, and Working Equitation horse and rider pairs. Through a virtual or in-person lesson, our classical approach to riding will provide a solid foundation for any discipline.

Riders are welcome to haul-in for riding or groundwork lessons at our training facility, River Run Equestrian, located on Wilsonville Road between Wilsonville and Newberg. Boarding clients have the option to put their horse in full or partial training that is customized to their personal goals. We have a small number of school horses available to use in lessons.

Bernadine is known for her welcoming approach to all breeds and looks forward to helping riders of all experience levels and disciplines learn how dressage training can truly benefit anyone. Come with us and build your partnership with your horse!
