Rolling Hills Estates resident Diane Barber became an avid equestrian as a child, beginning with Quarter Horses in Pennsylvania.

Years later, after relocating to the South Bay, she fell in love with Spanish horses the moment she laid eyes on her Spanish Arabian, Bold Brahim. “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 my life.”

With her career in both marketing and design, Diane had an “a-ha moment” while riding though Spain several years ago. “I realized that true bliss for me would be to merge my horse world with my business world.” That epiphany led to the creation of Equestrian Designery, an interior design business for equestrians, one she operates along side her other interior and marketing projects. “I create harmonious living spaces with the spirit of horses and the lifestyle of my clients in mind,” she says. Diane reveals both she and her business will appear on a HGTV series in the spring.

Acknowledging her relaxed animal-friendly community as a place of incredible natural beauty, Diane frequents the arenas and riding trails on the Peninsula. “I love the serenity, the magnificent ocean views and the ever-present hawks in flight,” she shares. “I enjoy having the stables close to home so I can see my horse every day.”
