JOIN OUR HERD OF EQUINE GUIDED EDUCATORS. OUR APPROACH IS UNIQUE, TRANSFORMATIVE AND LIFE CHANGING! ARE YOU READY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
Ariana began incorporating horses into Leadership programs in 1989 and since has trained some of the best Equine Guided Professionals in the industry. Her approach is a unique, profound blend of the horse as the respected guide, somatic coaching, linguistics, nature, intuitive listening and biology. She co-founded the Equine Guided Education with some of her students in 2004 and hosted over eight international EGEA conferences, bringing the industry leaders together to learn and share the power of the horse in healing and self development.
"Ariana is THE pioneer in this field and Masterful in how she brings this work forward, both as a coach and as a teacher! She embodies what she teaches with grace and compassion. SkyHorse EGE™ is unique because the horses are respected as our guides (they are the most important part of the process) and our role as EGE facilitators is to create an open space for learning and change. I am honored to be SkyHorse EGE™ certified. If you have any inclination to be a change maker, AND the call of the horse rings in your heart this program is for you. I strongly recommend the SkyHorse EGE program! "
"“I have never experienced a coach/guide with more energy and commitment to each person’s growth than Ariana. Not only did the horse work give me a piece of myself back…maybe the heart of who I am…but her intuition, her relentlessness with each of us waking up offered a model of fierce compassion that I will do my best to live into as I grow myself as a coach. She is my first live example, of what those old Zen Masters must have been like-Fierce compassion and unwavering commitment.”"
"Thank you for the quality training and the many insights I learned by going through your program. Time and time again, I find myself remembering something you said or the “why” of something you asked that maybe did not make sense at the time. I have learned so much since then(10 years ago!) and the foundation I built on was your solid education."
