"To be part of Ariana's herd is an experience of being with a master, running the hills in freedom, with tussled manes and the wind behind us; where the past is honored, but has no place in the tenuous future of things. Live, life, now. "

Cassandra Ogier, Certified Equine Guided Educator

"Ariana’s most unique gift is her ability to navigate seamlessly between the cognitive, mental world of our “thinking mind”, the place we are when we are “in our head”, and the somatic, energetic, intuitive, and spiritual world that connect us to nature, where our senses and feelings reside. She is able to move between these two worlds, as a partner guide with the horses, leading people to discoveries about and within themselves that they could not otherwise find."
