Aria Desert Rain

Compassionate Horsemanship Trainer and Coach

About Aria

Aria's journey began when her first horse joined her family. Her horse was struggling with behavioral issues and in order to help him overcome those issues and blossom Aria became a positive reinforcement training specialist with emphasis in equine emotions. This training method is what Aria calls Compassionate Horsemanship as the focus is on how the equine feels about the training whether they are learning new behaviors or practicing old ones. Aria is very passionate about equine behavior, training and care practices. She currently has three horses in training, all in different stages. Aria's goal is to assist other equine owners during their own journey to achieve a connected partnership with their equines while addressing any behavioral concerns they may have.

Healthcare Cooperation

You can teach your equine to remain calm during wound care, deworming, injections, bathing, fly spraying and picking up feet. You can also learn consent cues to allow for more communication between you and your equine.


Starting Under Saddle

Prepare your equine for riding by teaching it to willingly come and line up at the mounting block and be saddled and bridled. Learn long-reining and how to transfer your cues from the ground to the saddle.
