Meet the Team

MeetTheTeam-DickNTerriDick and Terri Kane

Dick and Terri Kane purchased Diamante Farms when their daughter Devon was young, so she could train in Wellington and follow her dreams of being a professional dressage rider. Recognizing their daughter’s self-motivation to reach her goals, her parents have always been her biggest supporters. Devon credits her success at Diamante Farms to Terri Kane’s insistence on making horses an integral part of Devon’s childhood and Dick Kane’s background in business. Dick and Terri works constantly to give back to the dressage community that means so much to them by sponsoring and volunteering with national dressage organizations and events.
