Welcome to my Academy

An equestrian riding skills and life coaching academy. It is a combined e-learning and live training program made of videos, webinars, training tools and live clinics, which addresses both horse riding and human emotional needs, all culminating in multiple avenues for success for its clients. The Luciana Diniz Academy is for all riding enthusiasts, trainers and coaches in all fields of horsemanship – both professional and amateur, riders and non-riders.

The aim of this academy is to cater for all levels of equestrian riders and enthusiasts. We certify trainers and coaches in a training program called the Butterfly Method, the methodology and philosophy at the basis of all training programs in the Luciana Diniz Academy.

The academy supports its clients throughout their journey to success with their horses, using the Luciana Diniz range of interactive e-learning tools, live webinars, customized lesson videos and riding clinics where clients can come and train with us.

The Luciana Diniz Academy trains its clients in this tried and tested, holistic and psychological riding program that has been carefully created and crafted based on Luciana's experience as a rider, using some of the same techniques she uses every day.

Luciana wants you to join the Luciana Diniz Academy and learn to succeed for yourself, like she has.
