Circa 1987: At left, Sandy Bieri and Jennifer Reynolds with one of Sandy’s Thoroughbreds, shortly after the grand opening of Pine Meadow Farm. Sandy and Jen were founding members of the Southwest Florida Dressage and Combined Training Association (now Southwest Florida Dressage Association). Part of Sandy’s vision for DaVinci Farms has been to recreate the combined training orientation of her old farm (below).
Diane has an impressive background with horses and has been with DaVinci Farms since December 2007. She grew up on race tracks, where she did everything from breezing Thoroughbreds to treating injuries. Her vast experience also includes tenures with a veterinarian clinic and upscale hunter-jumper and dressage barns. Her love for horses and service-oriented dedication to the business are immediately obvious. She and her husband John (formerly a farrier up north) have been at DaVinci Farms since December 2007 and live on the premises so that the horses have 24 hour care. Diane always take great pains to go the extra mile for our horses and owners.
