We are so excited to welcome back Ariana Sakaris to Indigo Trails! As a clinician, Ariana teaches, trains, and travels for clinics, focusing on Dressage, Groundwork, Liberty, Horse Development, and Weanling & Yearling Education. You may remember Ariana and her two horses Wild Heart and Mermaid who were here a few years ago for the Midwest Horse Fair.
Ariana was awarded Reserve Champion with her mare “Mermaid” in the Open Division of the 2017 Midwest Horse Fair Star Search Competition, as well as with her mare “Wild Heart” in the 2017 Kentucky Extreme Mustang Makeover. She has given demonstrations at the National Mounted Police Colloquium and has been a clinician at the Midwest Horse Fair. She has also participated in performances alongside her mentors at events such as Breyerfest, the Denver Stock Show, and the U.S. Dressage Finals.
She has committed many years to traveling both within the U.S. and overseas to gain valuable hands on experience, and to be mentored by world renowned professionals. She has trained with and been mentored by several respected Grand Prix trainers and USDF Gold Medalists in Dressage, studied Classical Dressage overseas, and spent time learning from greatly valued Horsemanship and Liberty professionals. These experiences helped her gain valuable insight into the love, patience and compassion that goes into connecting horses and people, and bringing them to a point of better understanding both on the ground and in the saddle. For those that have worked with her, they know her for her calm, patient, empathetic approach when she works with horses, and also with the humans that accompany them. She has a commitment to always bettering herself and a love of teaching and sharing her knowledge in a way that is relatable and mutually respectful to both the horse and human. Her goal is to inspire and help people gain a better understanding of themselves and the connection they have with their horses.
The 2 Day Clinic will consist of a 1 hr private lesson for each participant each day for each horse/rider pair and includes auditing the remainder of the time to continue your learning as Ariana works with the different horse/rider combinations. Whether you want to work on groundwork, liberty, riding techniques, or horse development, each rider can focus on their specific goals with their horse during their designated time.
