The ROTH methodology being so versatile and comprehensive allows for starting colts in a safe manner for both horse and handler. There are several times in a horse’s life that can be their most traumatic or most memorable, that being birth and starting under saddle. During a week long intensive program ROTH students learn the value and importance of reading a horse, communication, respect, leadership, quantity of pressure, feel & timing – none more or less important than the other. Shiloh Acres in Fort Collins became home to Anna Twinney and the class for the week.
A good trainer will understand as much about himself than he will the horse he touches. The ROTH colt starting clinic at Shiloh Acres, Fort Collins involves learning the language of Equus through liberty & in-hand exercises, communication through body language, energy and telepathy. Each step helps shape behavior, preparing for the most important day of their life – starting under saddle. The way they are introduced to the saddle often determines the rest of their lives, the home they are welcomed into and often their career. Lets make it the most rewardable time of their life!
