A FIRST OF IT’S KIND!

THE COMPLETE FOAL HANDLING COURSE WITH ANNA

 

November 15th – 20th, 2010
Ray of Light Farm, East Haddam, CT

(Applies towards ROTH Holistic Horsemanship Course Graduates
becoming ROTH Trainers Continuing Education)


Gentling foals can be some of the most important and rewarding work you will ever do. Working with PMU foals, knowing that you have helped save them from Canada’s feedlot and given them a new chance for a full and happy life, is more rewarding than you can even imagine.

Last year Frank Weller and the Equine Angels saved 7 foals from certain death, 5 of which were filmed during a week long ROTH training program.  The 4-part DVD set, Foals in Training, scheduled to be launched in only a few short months, depicts the lives of the foals from their arrival in trailers through to their first touch, their first halter, their first step.  This unique, comprehensive tool gives you the opportunity to travel down the road as we gentle these beautiful souls.

We want our foals to feel safe, and their experiences with humans to be positive, memorable ones.  These first important lessons stay with them for the rest of their lives and so the training must be done right.  Acknowleding the “whisper” is crucial, recognizing the “try” is an art.

And now it’s your turn to join Anna for a week of fun, friends and foals.

You will have the chance to understand, first-hand, the power of compassionate leadership and positive reinforcement while creating the clarity in boundaries and balance.

Learn the same uniquely designed and tested program
Anna herself uses to start foals for basic handling!

Spend 6 fun-filled, info-packed days learning the Reach Out to Horses methods and work with a new group of PMU foals, starting these young lives on the path towards a gentle, trust-based partnership with humans.

Under Anna’s tutelage you will work directly with the foals, and learn how to teach them:

  • Halter training – acceptance of halter, leading
  • Tying (if appropriate)
  • Loading
  • Picking up feet
  • Grooming
  • Worming
  • Vaccinations
  • Blanketing
  • Navigating an obstacle course
  • Desensitization techniques to plastic bags and other objects
  • and more…

By introducing these elements of Basic Handling to your foal at the age of weaning, you will be preparing them for the best start possible.  Your foal has a memory for life, let these first memories be good ones.

And as a bonus you will join Anna at Ray of Light Farm in picturesque East Haddam, CT – the same location at which Anna filmed the Foals in Training DVD Set.  This is an ideal facility to learn these life-changing techniques.

Space is extremely limited, only 2 spots left!

Participation is on a first come first serve basis so sign up today!

Total Cost: Only $1200.00 for the entire 6 days of training.
