I’ve always known my herd was not yet complete. When my mare, Promise, was pregnant I felt very strongly she was having twins. (Luckily for us both, I was wrong!) I considered naming her foal, Eclipse, but when the foal came it was clear her name was Journey.
Fast forward 4.5 months. I had a huge intuitive hit that I needed to pay attention to the ROTH Foal Gentling clinic being held by Anna Twinney in Bend, OR, in partnership with Warm Springs Horse Alliance who rescues native foals from the Warm Springs tribal land, for which I have a strong affinity. Perhaps in one of my many trips over the mountain where I greet the horses as part of ritual each time, I saw he and his herd roaming free before they were rounded up. This part I will never know.
When they named him Eclipse I just knew. That deep in your soul “YES” that won’t let go… The same feeling I had about Promise. The same feeling I had so many years ago with Legacy.
Eclipse is 4 months old just like Journey. Twins, sort of. I knew I had a feeling and I was right. The Universe just planned it far more perfectly. It always does.
Anna’s East Coast tour started with horsemanship in New York, and then she moved into Animal Communication in Connecticut. She then returned to New York for more Communication Sessions at For the LOVE of Dogs. Truly it was a couple weeks that all enjoyed and from which each person took away new wisdom.

This weekend gave me confidence in my own intuition by being able to ask questions and get confirmed answers rather than just feeling my way through a communication.
Laurie R. of West Suffield, CT
Love in its many forms was the theme of this incredible, 3-day seminar in Animal Communication. Lovingly partnering with animals to really see them and hear their messages. I learned so much about myself and what it takes to truly listen to the animals.
Christine R. of Bethany, CT
Anna is a master teacher – she can direct questions to a student, which causes her to dig deeper into what she has just observed and learned and helps to integrate the learning into practice. Thanks and love….
Elaine S. of Quaker Hill, CT
I came to the workshop with no expectations, having never been around horses, thinking that this may be just about listening to instruction and not implementing it. What I found was that this was very emotional for me in so many ways – a lot of tears – openly coupled with amazing realizations about myself – most of all. In the end – I’m in the way – get into my heart and out of my mind. Bless you, Anna Twinney, for your gift and for your ministry.
Amy W.J. of Waterbury, CT
This class has given me the confidence and validation I needed to continue my animal journey. Anna is a wealth of knowledge that I have never gotten from any other animal communication class. Thank you!
Cathy L. of East Haddam, CT
My heart feels hugged and embraced by like-minded people. This clinic helped me embrace myself as a Reach Out to Horses Instructor, and helped me understand the importance of blending animal communication into my life.
Dora R. of Eastover, SC
What a profound experience. Being reminded that I do have the ability to communicate with animals. The profound experience came when a dog I was speaking to brought a human in from the other side. Giving that message was so precious and moving.
Anna then traveled to Centerline Stables in Ossining, NY, and shared more communication with the people, horses and dogs who call Centerline their home!
And from Sharon M. of For the Love of Dogs at Centerline Stables:
Anna has been coming to Centerline Stables for something like fifteen years, and over the last three years she has been splitting her time in service to both the horses here as well as the rescue dogs who live on the property under the care of For the LOVE of DOGS Rescue. She helps us help our dogs in many ways, primarily by giving voice to certain dogs’ needs, wishes, and requests through individual communications, and by providing wisdom and guidance to all of the humans who are responsible for these dogs’ well being and future adoption placement.
During her latest visit, a young female yellow lab mix named Gemmie gave a clear explanation of the type of home environment she wanted – a large open farmstead on which she can move in and out with one or two male dogs her size. She showed herself as a good listener who would always be attentive to her people, and she took comfort in knowing that they would be there checking in with her as she moved around with a sense of freedom and spaciousness. Giving Gemmie this voice helps us tremendously because we have an understanding her ideal home straight from her. It also gives another perspective of who she is beyond her typical behavior at the rescue and helps to broaden our minds to what could be possible now and in the future.
Also during this visit, Anna led a workshop for us that focused on awareness of energy, the differences between each person’s and dog’s energetic qualities, and the impact of the ever-present language of energy. We used cotton balls in an exercise to learn to quiet the mind and to feel. We felt and shared each person’s unique energetic qualities, including nurturing, grounded and reliable, sensitive and small, uplifting and powerful, loving, and confident and controlling. In becoming better attuned to our own particular energy qualities and how these interact with others around us, we also discussed the significant impact of congruence of energy, intent, and body language when working with dogs. Even if we approach the excitable dog with indirect body language and a calm voice, a person with uplifting and powerful energy may unintentionally excite that dog. A shy, untrusting dog may remain defensive when greeted with structured or controlling energy, but open up in the presence of nurturing energy. This awareness and knowledge is huge as we strive to strengthen the effectiveness of our daily communication between human and canine beings. A giant thank you to Anna from all of us – canine, equine, and human – at LoveDogs and Centerline!
Thanks go to all of the participants on Anna’s clinics, two-legged and four-legged! Without your dedication to giving a voice to the voiceless and to learning the art of Animal Communication, none of this would be possible! We greatly appreciate your participation! Love, blessings and light to all! We LOVE your hearts and souls!
Christine M. of Tadworth, Surrey
Really fabulous few days! For me, knowing yet another group of humans have participated in one of Anna’s Animal Communication classes and will leave with the knowledge and understanding of what it truly means to be a voice for animals, is a joy! It is also a joy to be one of those humans.
Cathy L. of Terryville, CT
Wanting more… After a lifetime of working with horses I found myself still wanting more. Six days of connecting with animals with an amazing group to study Animal Communication was a dream come true. By learning to connect directly with the animals’ thoughts I have expanded my own belief in what is possible. Anna, you’ve always provided the “more.” Thank you!
Melody S. of Middleton Springs, VT
When I received the information online of this course I was so interested yet could not see how I could fit it in my schedule. A few weeks went by and I received another notice that there was only one spot left. A voice immediately spoke in my head that I HAD to sign up for this course right now. Needless to say I am enjoying the company of my dear friend, Anna, and her lovely family on this first week. Also, meeting the incredible, diverse group of animals and people and gaining insight from all of them. What I have always appreciated about Anna is her ability to reach each person within a group and slightly modify the composition of the day to meet each one’s need. We have all gained so much depth and insight this week. My deepest gratitude!
For me the Animal Communication Mentorship Class is an opportunity to reignite, deepen and expand understanding. I am so appreciative of Anna’s innate gifts that she so readily shares with those who are willing to delve deeper and work toward goals. Our week has been enriched by the animals and the people in our circle, and I look forward to the progress we all will be making as we learn our own accents and language in this work. I am so excited to continue with the grace and support of all.
Gina K. of Centennial, CO
This week has been the most eye-opening experience felt on every level of who I am as a living creature- physical, emotional, spiritual, and energetically. This week will truly change my journey with animals and I am very excited to see how that looks.
Lauren W. of Wilmington, NC
This class is very intensive. It’s very important that the participant stay focused and not give up. It is hard but well worth doing. I am very pleased I stayed with it and am very happy with the outcome. I learned so much and have so much more to learn!
Teresa P. of Seffner, FL
My experience with the Anna Twinney Animal Communication Mentorship Program has been nothing less than positive. The days were very informative, eye-opening, and well-timed. The time was utilized to the maximum so that the schedule was not lacking, but over-energized by the wealth of knowledge being shared by Anna. The knowledge being shared was key in the sharing department, her heart was open and pouring forth and inspiring to all class members. I am forever grateful and humbled by the world and wisdom that Anna Twinney has introduced me to.
Patricia H. of Cody, WY
Where do I begin with what I have learned during the last 6 days? As always I have never been disappointed with one of Anna’s classes. I have learned to be open to all possibilities, to listen to my heart, my intuition, realize that sometimes things are on a case-by-case basis. I am never disappointed with the depth, breadth, and tremendous amount of knowledge that Anna has and is so willing to share with those who are willing to learn. Thank you, Anna!
Beth V. of Richfield, MN
Anna has great intuition about what to teach in her classes, and how to teach it. She knows what her class is ready to accept and opens their eyes a bit more each time.
Rob S. of Cottage Grove, MN
I took Anna’s Animal Communication Course with no experience in Animal Communication. Anna didn’t tell or direct me in how to communicate to animals. I followed/discovered my own direction by listening to Anna and the others in the class. This allowed me to build my own method that challenged me to be my best and remove the fears of moving forward.
Cheryl M. of Vancouver, BC
Anna’s Animal Communication Mentorship Program is an extraordinary experience. The experiences in this comprehensive training class are designed to help you discover your specific Animal Communication language as well as build your confidence. Anna creates a learning environment that is supportive and encouraging, allowing you to explore your individual talents.
Susan H. of Chadron, NE
I absolutely LOVED the class. Anna’s teaching methods and her years of experience allows the student to recognize and build on their own gifts and style of Animal Communication.
Natalie M. of Los Altos, CA
I am opening up to the endless possibilities that Animal Communication reveals. It is a life-changing experience and I know now nothing is impossible. The animals will lead you on an amazing journey and are so appreciative.
Marcia R. of Markham, VA
Anna gives such a thorough experience and overview of Animal Communication that she really helped me figure out where I belong. Each exercise shows you what works and what doesn’t. Anna also does a great job of honoring everyone’s different style. She pulls you forward without putting you in a box, MAGIC! I know that for myself, her teaching style and expertise is a perfect fit.
Pam C. of Madrid, IA
The time spent with Anna and class members has helped me to learn what I have to do to connect with an animal and to receive details with validation.
Orphaned, severely injured and left to die as a foal she found her way to a rescue where she was nurtured back to health living among other wild horses. Orphan foals often develop dangerous behavior patterns, find it challenging to integrate with other horses and can come to harm – a situation Sparrow found herself in once again during transportation as she fought for her life. Watch ROTH founder, Anna Twinney, communicate with Sparrow at liberty to discover her true story and create a trust-based partnership and specialized training program based on the language of the horse. Asked to connect & communicate, where others could not, Anna devised a program to prepare Sparrow for the longest journey of her life – a trip home. When raised correctly orphan foals speak Equus too! A clip dedicated to all those horses who fight for their lives and possess the warrior energy – it’s worth it!
