Gentling foals can be some of the most important
and rewarding work you will ever do.

Working with our 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.

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

The Comprehensive Foal Handling Course with Anna Twinney
Spend 6 fun-filled, info-packed days learning the Reach Out to Horses methods and work with a new group of 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.

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 proven program Anna herself uses to start foals for basic handling!

Over the Last 2 years Frank Weller and the Equine Angels saved 17 foals from certain death, 5 of which were filmed during a week long ROTH training program. The 4-part DVD set, Foals in Training 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,” says Anna, “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. Acknowledging the ‘whisper’ is crucial, recognizing the ‘try’ is an art.”

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.

Spectators Welcome at $75/day or only $400 for the entire week!

After a week of Foal Gentling bring your foal and all your questions and let Anna fix those pesky issues.

Working with a young foal can be very rewarding.  But let’s face it, it can also be concerning at times, and a small mistake in training could result in a lifetime of issues.  So if you are struggling with your young horse, would like to begin working with them but don’t know where to begin or want to get your burning problems or questions answered now is the time!

Anna will be devoting an entire day to working with your foal, fixing issues and deepening that trust-based relationship between you and your horse.  She will demonstrate the very methods she uses to train all her foals and begin the creating of a true relationship between horse and human.

And if that’s not enough, 100% of all the proceeds of the day’s event will go towards the rescue of the foals from the Canadian Feedlots.  The very same foals who participated in the Week of Foal Gentling.  So not only are you solving your own issues but you are literally saving lives.

A win-win-win for everyone!

So if you have recently adopted or rescued a foal bring him or her to Ray of Light Farm and join us.  If you don’t have a foal then bring your questions and your curiosity and join us.  Either way, spend the day with us and discover just what makes the Reach Out to Horses’ methodologies unique and how they can help you solve your most frustrating issues and create that trust-based relationship you’ve always wanted to have.

Cost:  Only $30 when you register before Nov. 28th / $40 at the door.
