Reach Out to Horses® has just released the 2-DVD set, Whispers from the Wild Ones: Mustangs as Our Master Teachers. It is the 10th DVD in the ROTH collection of equine instructional programs.
During the 176 minutes, viewers will experience not only the majestic mustang in its natural habitat but the exclusive Reach Out to Horses’ highly effective training techniques needed to gentle untouched, traumatized, rehabilitated, sensitive, and fractious horses.
Filmed on the iconic lands of Wyoming, Whispers from the Wild Ones walks viewers through the intricate and subtle world of the language of the horse, explaining the crucial differences between mustangs and domestic horses and how, with a true understanding of the language and behavior of the horse, one can create a true, stress-free, trust-based partnership and gentle the wild mustang.
“This is a must for any horseman or horsewoman with a mind to work with the wild ones. Even the experienced hand does not simply gentle a mustang. They are spiritual and earthly beings at the mercy of humans floundering in their attempts to “manage” this truly indigenous North American species. ROTH methodologies honor every aspect of these wild horses and put solutions to their plight in our hands. I highly recommend this… unique experience that cannot be replicated!”
– Sarah Lockwood, Windsor, CA

In addition to the training program, Founder Anna Twinney and ROTH remain committed to ending the captivity and suffering of over 50,000 mustang in BLM holding pens, returning them to their lives on the U.S. public lands, as well as helping those who are unable to return. A simple, cost-effective solution to managing the wild horses is within our reach. It is a strategy that could avoid round-ups, bait-trapping, culling, unnecessary distress, death and family break-ups, and may save millions of tax-payer dollars.
It is in that spirit that Anna has decided to create the Donate a DVD program. ROTH with the assistance of many generous donors will be giving away up to 1000 Whispers from the Wild Ones DVD Sets to non-profits and organizations that are committed to the well-being and care of the American Wild Horses and Burros.
“We would prefer to see all the mustangs returned to their families, their herds and their homes, but if that is not possible then we will do all we can to help them and give them a chance at freedom from the unbearable conditions in which they live today.” – Anna Twinney – Founder Reach Out to Horses
Reach Out to Horses was developed with the mission of bringing harmony to horses and humans. In the pursuit of that goal, they have been instrumental in the rescue of hundreds of horses and well over a hundred thousand dollars to the horses and the rescues that we they worked with.
“Although we are very proud of the work we and our partners have done, we do not plan on stopping, or even slowing down, any time soon.”
