Born and raised in Romania, next to Cluj, she studied Psychology up to masters degree, at Babes Bolyai University (University of Psychology and Science of Education – UBB Cluj); doing also a specialization in Animal assisted activities and therapies for people with special needs. She spent one year in Italy at Anche Noi A Cavallo, as part of on EVS project, being involved in horses assisted therapies for disabled patients.
After returning to Romania she switched to horse training, teaching and building an Equestrian theatre called Zaracan (emerging the public into the magic world of horses) – during which she got the taste of trick ridding, liberty, dressage, jumping and hungarian post.
In 2018 she got the chance to study at Benjamin Aillaud International Horse Academy – so she lived in France for more than one year, specializing in equestrian arts. Here she got the opportunity to perfect her horse training skills in disciplines like dressage, liberty and carriage, but also working with people in teambuilding activities and clinics for riders.

A horse in work no matter the discipline should be as happy as a dog taken out for a playfull walk.
Ioana believes that being in the presence of horses connects us to our deepest selves, taking us in to a state of serenity – having something ancestral, it brings revelations and great learning.
In the relation between the rider/trainer and the horse – the rider/trainer should be for the horse and not the other way around. The communication should be clear for the horse and adapted to him; aspiring always to a pleasant internal energy, adapted to the message we want to transmit and a congruent body language to go with it.
