It is great to hear you again.  Thank you for reminding me how to enhance the communication along with all those other things you mentioned, which are part of my animal/human/teaching practice. Beautiful. Perfect timing from a stormy New Zealand.

The Proof is in the Pudding…and in the Testimonials. Consensus: Anna Twinney – Miracle Worker!

 

We start with two testimonials from our most recent Colorado Clinic at Mounting Miracles Ranch in Lafayette, CO.

From Jan D. at Mounting Miracles:

I attended Anna’s Confident Horse, Confident Rider 2-day Clinic with my 6-year-old Mustang who I adopted from an Untouched Horse Course with Anna 5 years ago.  I’ve attended a lot of Anna’s courses and clinics and am no stranger to her techniques.  And yet, because of the human and horse dynamic, every clinic is different and special.  I was struck anew by two things in this clinic:

First, Anna’s ability to assess both horse and human is remarkable.  She can quickly and accurately identify the message a horse’s behavior might be sending and work with the human on understanding and developing a plan to address the issue effectively.  Just as clearly, and kindly, she is able to spot the slightest nuance in the handler’s movements or hear it in their self assessment and coach them to self confidence and success.

Secondly, Anna has always said that her techniques are not a “system.”  Witnessing her work with people entirely new to her philosophy reminded me of the power of that fact.  Some of the work we did was applied to all horses, as a way to assess the horse’s status and to develop trust and a few basic skills.  From there, everything was driven by the horse’s need.  In other words, each horse was viewed as an individual and no set “solution” was applied.  One horse may be a little head shy and not want his ears touched.  One approach is utilized to help him learn the value of letting the handler touch his ears.  Another horse may be head shy and terrified of having her ears touched because she associates it with past trauma and rough handling.  This horse will require a very different approach.  Anna’s gift is in helping the handler develop a solution that works for that horse, through education and creative problem solving.  The student is not just handed one solution, but taught to develop new solutions, based on knowledge and understanding.

I could go on and on about the fun atmosphere, the group bonding, and the supportive atmosphere.  Both Arrow and I had a great time…

Thanks, Anna!

 

Lloyd M. of Brighton, CO shares:

In 2011, my wife Jan and I began the journey that changed our lives. We had been volunteering at a horse rescue where we observed Anna moving a horse at liberty in a round pen using only her eyes. We were hooked. We proudly completed the ROTH Comprehensive Holistic Horsemanship Modular Certification Course (HHC) in 2011.  In February of 2012, we took the ROTH Foal Gentling Course with Anna in Tucson, AZ. These were PREMARIN foals Anna had rescued and the goal was to gentle them to become adopted. Anna assigned me the eight-month-old untouched buckskin; he was tall, always made his way to the front of the herd, and held his head high. This foal was an amazing old soul who easily picked up everything we worked on. I went home to Colorado after spending the week with him to contemplate what adopting him would entail. Head and heart agreed, he came to me in June and changed my life forever. He was awarded the name “Champ” because that is how he does everything! When he turned fours years old we took ROTH’s Colt Starting 101 together to start him under saddle.  We decided to go back to our horse roots by attending ROTH’s Confident Horse, Confident Rider Clinic with Anna in June 2017. Champ has only known ROTH techniques, so with Anna’s keen eyes she was able to critique our relationship to get closer to our potential. I have always preferred groundwork to riding but Anna was able to get me the “a-ha” moment of how fun riding can be!

Because of Anna’s marvelous ability to connect to each person and horse, everyday is a good day starting out with haying our herd.

Anna then went from Colorado straight to Kalispell, Montana (affectionately termed “Kila” by residents) where she did An Evening of Animal Communication and hosted her 3 Days of Intuitive Riding Clinic.

Images of Anna’s very cozy group of Animal Communication Attendees in Montana:Evening of AC MT

She also did a breakthrough session of Animal Communication for a long-time friend and client of Reach Out to Horses, Nancy H., and her horse, Shanti.  Here’s the scoop:

I was dealing with a scary horse crises that was 6 weeks on and getting worse.  Anna did a communication session with Shanti that was detailed, spot on – captured Shanti’s heart, communication style, injuries, site of the accident, what happened, how it happened, the horse who caused it – and the fact it was just ‘an accident’… Every detail ‘spot on’ as I was there – although just inside getting more hay.

Nancy’s Summary of the incident and Shanti’s injury:

My horse had a puncture wound injury 5 weeks before the clinic.  We had seen bizarre changes daily with edemas, air pillows under the skin-neck to lumbar, withers to belly along with a very lame leg that was swollen, not swollen, usable, and then not usableŠ Just before the clinic was to start, Shanti had a bloody nose 2 nights in a row.  Shanti was too lame to trailer but had been ultra sounded, radio graphed, monitored by the vet weeks before.  I felt completely unsupported by the vet and results from onsite radio graphs, and was feeling frantic for the unexplained high pain level and continued changes.  I begged Anna for a communication session even though I knew it was an unethical request.  Anna was able to fit us in and 6 others listened in, one of whom was a care giver to Shanti for 2 years before she came to be with me.

The session was helpful and I felt much relief at the end.  Shanti shared how and where the accident happened – which was spot on as to how I thought it must have unfolded but was doubting that scenario due to the major complications that kept springing up.   Shanti shared that the puncture area was clean inside, that there was no lung infection or lung pain.  That was excellent to know because due to the air under the skin this could have been caused by a broken rib, punctured lung, or massive infection.  Anna parlayed information that was possible, and that needed to be checked out.  Anna also set up a social media post where 100 people sent energy healing to Shanti.  I chose to not trailer on a Sunday due to limited staff & testing that could be done.  I set up a hauler on Monday.  The trailer looked just as Anna said it would be shaped.  This was the Montana Equine Emergency Ambulance.  Shanti would not go in for any of us.  Clearly her movement was better than it had been since the accident, ­ adrenaline or otherwise, she ultimately made a choice to heal at home.  She is moving around a bit more, standing taller, drinking more water and eating well.  I am offering multiple modalities and trying to get a BEMER vet package to help the nerve damage heal.  I do hope she gets her lovely trot back.

After feeling so frantic with the changes I was seeing in my horse even after doing all I could, I felt such relief with the information and gained confidence to move forward into the long rehab ahead of us. With all the skills, knowledge, and training I’ve gained, this accident was clearly outside of my confidence level. Anna sharing her gift was gigantic, valuable, and priceless. Our gratitude forever.

Nancy shared some images of her treasured Shanti:

 

Nancy H. also participated in the Intuitive Riding Clinic and this is what she shared:

Another amazing total of 4 days spent with Anna Twinney.  The time spent throughout this clinic was valuable beyond words.  Educational, inspiring, soul connections, life lessons – life patterns brought to awareness and let go… Way more than riding…Everyone expressed major life changes this year, and we are ready for next year! I simply can’t say enough good things regarding this experience!  I was able to take Starry on his own and he was perfect, calm, wise, and honored for who he is.  He found a new best friend we’ll go riding with as well… Such tremendous growth and connection in our relationship.

The life lessons over the weekend created awareness and were life-changing.Š The obstacle course at liberty with 2 horses, and a team driving horses to move was a challenge in projecting energy and intent.  Creating flowing energy and back-up energy and keeping that same energy in place as we moved together in a team – eyes on eyes first horse, then second horse, then shoulders square – ask for forward motion.   Knowing where to be and what to do to back someone up was really tough for me.  Took a long time to get it and this was humbling to get out of my head and finally move intuitively.  I actually didn’t ride my horse this weekend.  The TLC session went perfect with Starry – he was a completely different horse this year – due to the DePaolo Excel product I have him on.  I have no reservations riding him, he and I will be just fine. The IRE (Intuitive Riding Experience) just gets richer each year.  Collectively all the information sinks in, connects, makes sense and becomes a way of being. This year it all came together.

And shared by Brenda W. of Kalispell, MT

I love to feel passionate, inspired about my work on behalf of horses and humans, about being alive, especially connecting with and riding horses. But the truth is, after the loss of a life of almost daily riding, raising horses and mules, riding & packing in Glacier Park, and later the loss of my beautiful mare, I disconnected that confident, horse-woman part of myself. Add to the mix busyness, business building, and survival, I didn’t know how to get that part of me back. My current riding horse, Jett, and I, have had a frustrating dance over the past 12 years.  It was a dance of “do we trust each other?”  And each of us getting frustrated.  Last weekend I participated in the Intuitive Riding Clinic with Anna and my passion that I let stand aside was re-ignited! Anna helped me identify what was truly standing in my way of having the connection and relationship that I crave with my horse! It was glorious to re-awaken that confident part of myself – get back to riding and connecting with my horse.  This clinic was so much more than a clinic – it was a retreat that customized to our individual needs in horsemanship and in life lessons, including my greatest desire to ride Jett bareback. Over the past three years Anna has asked me why I am holding back.  This year Anna and Jett opened the gate wide and I stepped through.

In deep gratitude,

Brenda W.

A Reiki Request for Our Good Friend’s Mare, Shanti

Dearest Reiki Angels and other Reiki Practitioners,
We are requesting support for Nancy’s mare, Shanti.  Please read below about how her injury unfolded and what her timeline has looked like:
May 18th I fed the horses a pile of hay each – went in the hay tent – was opening another bale -went back out – blood was spurting out of Shanti’s chest – right armpit. I can only deduce that Rose my appy, thinking she didn’t get the best hay that morning chased Shanti – she couldn’t go forward because Starry was there, fence on one side a huge tree stump on the other – been there for 20 years or so. She must have spun and landed on top of the stump –  small 1 inch gash could have cut the small artery – blood spewed out with air bubbles…  I called the vet at 6:30 am  they came out 3 1Ž2 hours later due …   I got the bleeding stopped with compression, ice packs and ace bandage. Vet came – gave antibiotic shots, I followed up with 2 more, he checked her as best as he could – didn’t have the X-ray equipment… I created a 12 x 12 space for her since her right knee or leg was compromised – vet recommended as she couldn’t walk far, didn’t know the extent…


Monday morning – after feeling better seeing softening of inflammation on chest between legs finally after 4 days. Around 11 am – in 10 minutes time my horse moved around enough in a 12 x 12 stall after her buddies were out of sight to ‘suck air into her body’ through the 1 inch gash… She ballooned up – It felt like skin over an air cushion instead of solid muscle – chest, shoulders – withers to elbow, on back – now moved above lumbar area… It crinkles like bubble wrap in some places – air cushion, hollow – in others. 
 
Shanti had large edemas – chest & belly to her stifle.
 
5 weeks later – Worse than ever, muscle atrophy on scapula and shoulder area – triceps… Still no weight on leg, Pain displayed. Feels life threatening.

When Veronika and Anna met on Skype for the very first time, Veronika mentioned a very unexpected surprise for Anna.  “It’s a symbol giving us inspiration,” she said. It’s been on my desk since 2008 and now look we stand here together, united.  I don’t go on what I read or the person, I go on what I feel.  I was like a child when I first saw your logo.  It drew me right in and is so very important.  It inspired me to create my logo.

We were super excited to have Dr. Leah ~ Acupuncturist, massage therapist, and Healing with Horses Board Member come over from Trinidad to join us for the whole animal communication experience.
With an open mind and heart, Dr. Leah explored integrating the Young Living essential oils into her treatment.  Her sessions conducted at liberty, giving the horses free choice and a voice, she included them in the selection process.
When Navajo selected 5 oils, the pendulum revealed Relieve It, Hope and Di-gize to be the most serving for the day! With Hope on the heart chakra and Relieve it massaged in – Navajo choreographed his healing.

 

 

While having my hair braided in Tobago, I noticed this kitty rolling around on my pouch containing Essential Oils. I was unsure as to which oil triggered the love-fest, but for more than five minutes it was clear that the kitty was absolutely selecting an oil she needed!  Often when we see big reactions to Essential Oils, we don’t often get it on film.  It was great to see kitty’s reaction and share it with you all as a testament to the animals’ needs and desires to heal or soothe themselves.

Take me to Anna’s Oil Page so I can learn more!

About Healing with Horses

 

Jennifer was the Founding Horse of Being with Horses.  This beautiful, sensitive chestnut mare came to us all the way from Speyside.  She had lived in the rainforest as a leader for a herd of twenty sheep.  In 2007 Veronika walked this lovely mare all the way from Speyside, a 20-hour trek, to bring her to her new home in Buccoo.

February 11th-17th 2018

Join Anna on an adventure of a lifetime in the tropical paradise of Costa Rica!

As the founder of Reach Out to Horses, Anna, has brought you to the mountains of Wyoming, the desert of the Wild West and the exquisite landscape of the French countryside. Now she is excited to announce her return to paradise and she is pulling out all the stops to make this a special trip for all who join her.

Welcome to the next Healing Journey In Paradise retreat in Costa Rica.  Located in Costa Rica’s tropical rainforest, Lake Arenal and the Arenal Volcano are a sightseer’s dream.  While traveling within this part of the country, immersed in an idyllic jungle setting, this amazing retreat provides you with an opportunity to experience Costa Rica at its fullest! Howler monkeys, toucans and macaws, sloths, pizotes, hundreds of bird species, as well as the beautiful tropical flora, make this location a nature lover’s paradise!  And that is just the backdrop for your life-changing adventure

During this weeklong retreat you will learn true, trust-based horsemanship, one of the most popular healing arts in the world, Reiki, and explore the world of Animal Communication, all while vacationing in one of the most beautiful vacation spots in the world.

What is in store for you when you join us in February of 2018?

Day 1 – Arrive in Costa Rica

Arrive at the beautiful Majestic Lodge, your tropical home away from home!  Nestled in a cove on the Lake Arenal with spectacular views of the Volcano and Lake, this warm and inviting Lodge offers you comfort and relaxation.  After arriving, enjoy the Jacuzzi with a cocktail and have dinner on the open-air deck, while enjoying the grand view of the Arenal Volcano. You will sleep in the luxury of orthopedic beds and air-conditioned rooms and awake to the beautiful sounds of the various, tropical birds, and the morning call of the nearby Howler monkeys.

Day 2 – Learn the Most Popular Healing Art in the World!

Start the day with a “typical Costa Rican breakfast” followed by a day learning the popular healing art of Reiki with unimaginable views and extraordinary energy!

Reiki, translated from Japanese as “Universal Life Force”, is already used in clinics, private practices and hospitals all around the world.

Many people from all walks of life have awoken to the amazing benefits that Reiki can provide.

Developed as a healing art in early 20th century Japan, Reiki is a holistic, non-invasive technique that heals on all levels of the body, mind and spirit. In addition it can enhance other modalities of healing, both traditional and alternative, alleviate pain and has been proven to reduce stress in both humans and animals.

With this unique style of energy healing you can:

·      Alleviate stress, fears, worry and frustrations
·      Assist the body in cleansing different types of toxins
·      Help people break unwanted habits or conditions like smoking, overeating and alcoholism
·      Work on anything from your pets, houseplants and even your computer!
·      And more…

You will discover exactly what Reiki is, how to use it to heal yourself and others, and be certified and attuned to Reiki I certification.

Topics covered during the workshop include:
·      Level I Attunement
·      Reiki registers and energy movement
·      The Proper Use of Reiki
·      Starting a Reiki Practice
·      Body and Energy Scanning
·      Chakras: What they are and how to use them

And everyone who attends the workshop gets a full Reiki healing session so you can experience the amazing power of Reiki for yourself. Through Anna’s fun, powerful and nurturing style she will guide you to your full potential and help you discover what you might never even have thought possible!

Whether you haven’t worked with Reiki before, feel it’s time to take the next step or you want to take your Reiki practice to the next level, this is the perfect location to begin your journey of Reiki.

And that’s just the first day!

Day 3 – Morning – A little bit of T.L.C.  Spend the morning horse whispering! Experience Anna’s unique ROTH methodologies based around her step-by-step safety system.  Become intimate, support in their relaxation, come to understand your horse’s past experiences, and begin the process of building a trusting partnership and getting to know your horse before you gain their permission to ride in the rainforest. Incorporate visualization, body language, feel, timing, and more, as you explore these trust-based exercises.

Afternoon – Rancho Margo Ride!  Your first ride in Costa Rica will take you far up into the mountains and through the tropical rainforest to capture beautiful views of nature and pastureland. Be prepared to see an array of tropical wildlife, Toucans, Monkeys, Sloths, Pizotes and various species of birds. The views of the Arenal Volcano and natural rainforest can’t be beat!

On the way into the jungle, we will stop for a late lunch at Rancho Margot, an eco-ranch that is the very model of self-sustainability.  Almost everything they serve is grown on their farm and all their meat comes from their own free range chickens, and free roaming cattle. The lunch is an open buffet, with fresh salads, vegetables, meats and pizza.

Day 4 – Dances with Horses – After enjoying a fresh and healthy breakfast, we will jump into the “deep end” of equine communication – the obstacle course.   The obstacle course is one of the most effective instruments in horsemanship and you will join your equine partner at liberty to discover not only the complexity of the language of Equus but also your authentic self!

You will learn how to communicate effectively with your horse energetically as well as through intricate movements, gaining the partnership and connection you’ve always desires.

Anna developed the obstacle course over 18 years ago.  Since then thousands of her students from all over the world have worked with the obstacle course for a myriad of purposes.

You will apply this safe and effective training approach to all interactions with your horses, while at the same time determining a deeper understanding of your horse’s learning style.  Not only will Anna show you how to read the subtleties of your horse’s body language and direct your horse on the ground but she will enlighten you to the specific life lessons your horse wants you to know!

Once the day is done, you will enjoy watching the sunset with cocktail in-hand at the hot tube before another mouthwatering dinner overlooking Arenal lake and contemplating the life lessons the horses brought to you this day.

Day 5 – Animal Communication and the waterfall ride you will never forget!

Animal communication is just a belief away! After a delicious breakfast, on the open-air deck, overlooking the Volcano, Anna will introduce you to the amazing world of Animal Communication.  You will explore your inherent gifts and discover how to telepathically connect and communicate with a being of another species.

With this heart-to-heart connection you will uncover a new wordless language of love, a language of thoughts, images, feelings, emotions and other intuitive senses.

Next be sure to bring your camera (or smartphone).  We will join Lilander and our horses and go on a 4-hour horseback ride to a beautiful, tropical waterfall tucked deep in the jungle. After a 2-hour ride up, up, up, into the primary rainforest, we will reach the top of the mountain where you will tie up your horses and hike down to the waterfall.

Here you can enjoy a refreshing swim, and relax with beautiful, bountiful nature.  The water, and the spectacular flora and fauna will create an experience you will never forget.

We will have our picnic lunch by the waterfall and then hike back up to our horse partners.  Enjoy lunch surrounded by the pristine, natural world before connecting with the wild ones.  You will explore the magical gifts from our messengers – the animals themselves.

In the afternoon we head back, returning to the Majestic Lodge for a hot soak, or refreshing swim and relax before dinner.  In the evening we will go out for dinner to one of our favorite spots in Costa Rica!

Day 6 – Reiki; Energy Healing for Horses.

One of energy healing’s most effective and astounding uses is in the healing of animals. Horses, and animals in general, are great clients for energy work because they don’t have any preconceived notions or skepticism that often get in the way of human receptivity. An animal is simply present to the experience.

You will learn how to:
·    Ask for “permission” from your animal companions
·    Set up a safe energy healing session
·    Scan your horse’s body
·    Locate the energy centers of the body, known as the chakras
·    Listen to your horse and read his body gestures
·    Facilitate “love lessons”
·    Recognize the duration of sessions

We have found that most horses love Reiki and other forms of energy work. They will quite often relax into the healing session, lower their heads, keeping a leg cocked in a relaxed position, and even close their eyes as they enjoy the sensation. Many times you can even hear their stomachs gurgle as the healing energy flows through them, clearing energy blocks as it goes. And when they have had enough, they will usually let you know by “waking up” and sometimes even walking away.

Anna will show you the most effective way to apply your practice and your skills to the horse. This is also a great opportunity to review your skills if you are a little rusty or maybe feel like you need a little more instruction. Improve your skill set, increase your confidence, and heal some horses!

The information you will learn comes directly to you from Anna and her decades of knowledge and experience.

Day 7 – Ride with ROTH on the Lake Arenal Trek!

You will embark once again for a stunning rainforest trail ride with your equine partner. Your guides will show you all the amazing flora and fauna along the way! We will travel the lake road taking in the vibrant, green forest that surrounds us.

You will cross over Cano Negro River and head down into the river belt and its lush grasslands and abundant bird life.  The nature here is peaceful with a calm dignity. The low hum of the cicadas will remind you of ancient times. You will experience a deep feeling in the core of your very being, living in the moment, in tune with nature. After a refreshing ride with our equine partners you will be treated to a nice boat ride across Lake Arenal, a last opportunity to enjoy the lake and say goodbye before you return to the Majestic Lodge.

Day 8 –Depart Costa Rica or CHOICE ADDITION; Relax in the tropics!

Heading back to San Jose or Liberia in your air con private transfer, the sadness you may feel as you head back home can easily be allayed by getting busy planning your next trip with us!

Spectacular scenery, overflowing hospitality, guided horseback rides through the jungle paired with animal communications and Reiki for humans and horse; Anna’s Costa Rica adventure was a dream come true.  With gratitude for opening my body, mind, and spirit to a whole new world.

Nancy Z. of El Castillo, CR

Anna is an amazing person and an outstanding teacher with a special gift to share with the world.  Her passion and love for what she does to help horses and humans is changing the world.  She is such an inspiration and this clinic touched my heart and expanded my awareness of nature, horses,  and the connection that we have with one another.  I highly recommend Anna’s teachings and can’t wait until my next clinic with her!

Nancy F. of North Lawrence, OH

Costa Rica provided the perfect environment for me to dip my toe in the pool of Reiki knowledge.  Anna is a gifted instructor and I would highly recommend this clinic.

Marie S.B. of Pasadena, CA

I attended the Healing in Paradise clinic to learn what Reiki was, work on animal communication, and to ride in the jungle.  The surprise was after a session of Reiki on the horses, the little, red trail-horse-mare who I chose as a partner for the week then stood taller, coat shined, and she was more at ease with the other trail horses.  I cannot wait to go home and ask my horse if he would like Reiki healing!

Trish M. of South Weber, UT

Coming to the jungle of Costa Rica added the peace and beauty to the Course.  I felt it made the Reiki and animal communication connection stronger.  The finale of going it the waterfall just gave it that added touch.  All the love and laughter within the group gave the love and acceptance that was needed to a few in the group.  Joseph and his teaching sessions were wonderful and should be included in future “retreats.”

Taylor M. of Fall City, WA

During this retreat I was introduced to Reiki, animal communication, and horses in a whole new perspective.  Coming into the trip I had a lot of horse knowledge but was brand new to the art of energy healing and had very limited knowledge on communicating with animals through anything other than body language.  As the retreat comes to an end, I am very appreciative that I had such an opportunity like this and look forward to attending more clinics in the future, as I have much to learn.

Lani S. of Redmond, WA

WOW!  This was a truly epic journey in Costa Rica.  The extraordinary scenery and wildlife paired with Anna’s exceptional teaching made for a wonderful time.  I’m taking truckloads of information and experiences home with me.  The memories made at Anna’s Clinic will forever stay with me.  I learned so much and will continue to learn along this journey.
