Exciting News!

Freedom Cowgirl and SkyHorse Academy have merged! Ariana's signature programs in Equine Guided Education and Coaching have moved to this site. Freedom Cowgirl courses have become part of the Academy's offerings. 

Freedom Cowgirl represents the freedom to be who you are meant to be, wild and free.

Skyhorse Equine Guided Education, founded by Ariana Strozzi Mazzucchi, respectfully incorporates the magic healing powers of horses into human growth and learning. What makes Skyhorse EGE™ unique is our somatics and spirit™ approach with horses in a natural setting interwoven with a reverence for authenticity, compassion and curiosity.

"The next leadership frontier is of a spiritual nature. Now is the time to respect all creatures and Mother Earth. Our success is no longer defined by our accumulation of material goods, but by being in service to our Great Mother Earth.”

— —Ariana Strozzi Mazzucchi

SkyHorse Equine Guided Education & Coaching

 "If you feel 'called by the horse', your heart knows the ultimate goal is to find new pathways for living a sustainable lifestyle that respects all creatures of the earth."  -Ariana Strozzi Mazzucchi, Founder SkyHorse Academy 

Equine Guided Education (EGE) is a unique approach to healing and education where the horse is a 'respected' guide to teaching self-responsibility, healthy relationships, free thinking, and collective unity.

EGE offers a wide variety of healing and learning, including coaching, horsemanship, leadership, team building, therapy, shamanism, animal communication, and somatics. The gold standard in the Horse as Healer/Teacher' field since 1989!
