Respect is earned through patience, kindness, and genuine curiosity.
Authentic presence is gained by developing awareness of your inner intentions, your energetic body language and your mind/body and spirit.
As the founder of Intuitive Horsemanship™ and Equine Guided Education and Coaching, Ariana has successfully forged new paradigms for the horse human bond since 1989.
Ariana is a phenomenal horse person. She has a way of understanding the dynamics of horses that is incredible. She connects with horses on a level like no trainer I’ve worked with and makes it easier as a student to really grasp what’s going on in the relationship. -Hilary Anthony, 2020
“My trainer is blown away by the change in my riding since doing the first class with Ariana. Over the past couple days, all she’s been saying is, “Oh my God, you are FINALLY using your core – it’s pretty cool (thanks Ariana).” -Julie Bridge
“Intuitive Horsemanship™ with Ariana has given me a new sense of freedom with my horse. I am refreshed and have a newfound confidence in myself and my horse, thank you!”
Karen Overby,, Certified PATH Riding Instructor
Horses are not judgmental
Ariana opens up a whole new way of understanding horses that is universal to any method of horsemanship. Her focus is on the horse-human relationship from a ‘feeling’ perspective rather than a ‘knowing’ perspective.
Ariana connects her clients to their original passion for horses as ‘good for the soul’, a ‘non-judgmental ally’, a 'friend and partner'.The first step is letting go of what you 'know' and becoming a curious student of the horse's true nature.
Horses are authentic
Ariana's tried and true approach that benefits both horse and human, is about being authentic and working from the inside out. Learn how horses mirror the energy of their riders, people around them, the other horses and even the vibe of the barn/stable. Horses primary communication is through energetic transaction and trusting their instinctive nature. Respecting how horses and humans experience 'life before thought' is essential to building a harmonious relationship.
Horses are sentient
Horses are often treated disrespectfully. Not necessarily on purpose, but often because of a narrow perception of horses as the servant; a beast of service (without regard to their sensitive nature).
Ariana shares how to see horses as a partner with feelings and sense-abilities we can learn from. She honors the horse as a sentient being, with feelings, moods, instincts and a social desire to connect, just like people do.
Honoring horses as sentient, caring beings means understanding that horses have individual personalities, preferences and needs.
