Uncategorized May 19, 2020

In this video, as I coach the owner working with her own horse, we continue to talk about connection, personal space and boundaries; how to enforce the invisible boundaries without damaging the relationship with the horse; how to prevent bracing and tension with appropriate body language and different use of tools; and how to invite the horse to circle willingly and energetically, in balance and self-carriage.

"Because of the Horse..."

I have embarked on a journey to self improvement, and have challenged myself to expand my comfort zone repeatedly.

 

I am an avid student of the horse and have spent my whole life looking for and developing quality horsemanship.  I have been riding since I was 6 years old, taking lessons whenever and wherever I was able while I moved around with my military family. I have ridden with many incredible horsemen and women, but my biggest influencers have been Theresa Doherty, a student of Egon von Neindorff, and Brent Graef. 

 

My training program works for all breeds and disciplines and focuses on promoting softness, balance, and relaxation. With classical dressage basics and an emphasis on lightness and relaxation, I believe that any horse can improve given enough time and understanding. Working with the horse’s mind...

There are four specific areas I focus on when I am developing a deep connection with my horse, a connection that allows me to communicate with subtle aids and in the mind and heart connection.

Here are the four components needed to ride as one in mind, body and heart with your horse:

a. Relationship: developing the relationship is about developing  two-way connection and conversation with your horse. You are always in relationship and in everything you do together.

b. Chakra Energy: working with energy, means to connect and communicate, and creates the deepest connection possible with your horse.

Ariana Sakaris - The Power of Observing & Listening

Uncategorized May 19, 2020

 

Learn about the power of observing and listening to our horses. Quite often as humans, we get caught up thinking about:

    • What we are “doing” with our horse,
    • What we are “saying” to them, or 
    • The “aids/ requests” we are giving them.

 

As people, it’s often easy to turn our focus more towards what we are doing, and miss turning our focus around to observing and listening. Therefore, it’s important that we learn how to do both - how to delicately talk and listen at the same time. This will help us best adapt our communication to exactly what our horse needs in each moment.


Because of the Horse I have learned how to speak and connect to people’s hearts, instead of just their minds. I have learned how to see people for who they are at their core, not what they look like on the outside, with the clothes they wear or the way their body looks. I’ve learned how to look behind the curtain and see each...
