Ari is an incredible riding instructor. She is [an] experienced, calm, steady, and supportive teacher. She is  beautifully tuned with her herd and students - and this translates to professional, progressive learning in a fun and safe environment. Ari is the only person I know who is uses a tool called Emergenetics to identify how her horses are 'wired' to think and work with students. She also learns the thinking/behavioral preferences of her students and can match them with the perfect horse for the best learning. That said, the horse Uno picked me to work with - and we are wired much the same. So much fun to learn from a four-legged being that thinks like me!  This is my first experience with a skilled instructor, and it has been fabulous. I was a nervous learner, due to some previous experiences, and that is all behind me now. I'm looking forward to my future lessons and moving forward in my riding skills, thanks to Haven Horsemanship, Ari and Uno. 
I highly recommend Ari and her herd for young and old, new and skilled riders looking to enhance their skills with a humane, well run organization.

I had such a positive and educational experience at Haven Horsemanship! Ari is really great at gauging your experience level, and making sure that you’re comfortable and confident to perform different tasks. She’s also great at matching you with a horse with similar personality traits so that you can better thrive as an individual and as a pair. This makes for a great overall experience in a very comfortable environment. I would highly recommend Haven Horsemanship to anyone ranging from beginning to advanced horsemanship skills, whether that be to start working with horses or better your riding techniques.

Ari is very knowledgeable and patient with both horse and rider. She goes much deeper into horse behavior and psychology than any other trainer I am aware of to come up with a customized training plan to identify and achieve progressive goals for both horse and rider. I have a mustang that was "cowboy" trained that was so uptight and distrustful when we started working together. Now he is an "in your pocket" willing partner! Thanks Ari!

We were so lucky to find Ari! I've loved horses all my life, and I wanted to be able to introduce my sons and my husband to horses and riding. We met Ari and knew from the first moment she was the one for us and her business was where we wanted to keep our horses. We have 3 now and they are all happy, healthy, and well-loved. She has done wonders with Rhia, the horse we adopted from a rescue. Thank you Ari and your wonderful business for making such a lovely impact on our lives!

Ari was AMAZING with my 10-year-old nephew. He had never been on a horse before and was very hesitant to get near it. After slowly and methodically working with him for 2 hours, he was happily talking to the horse, leading it on a walk and riding it with a HUGE smile on his face. His family back east said they wouldn't have believed it, were it not for the photos and videos I took. Thank you doesn't come close to how much we appreciate Ari's patience and expertise!
