DIANNA MILLER / Instructor
Dianna brings 23 years of horsemanship experience to ANT, having grown up riding horses in Bellingham before graduating from WWU with a B.A. in Recreation. She became a professional Cowgirl and has guided all over the United States for the past 12 years, on private ranches and in National Parks including Grand Canyon National Park, & Theodore Roosevelt National Park, and on wild horse ranches in the Dakotas. She then moved home to Bellingham where she owned & operated a trail riding business and provided lessons and trail rides along the Nooksack River. Dianna is passionate about helping people explore recreation and leisure through equestrian experiences, whether observing a wild horse herd in their natural environment, or riding across the badlands on a good saddle horse. She finds that horses and nature promote emotional healing and wellbeing, and she wants to share the joy with others.
