A Message From Behind the Curtain…

Ahoy, Mateys! 

‘Tis I, Lacey, Captain of the ROTHffice!

Most of my friends who know I work for a Horse Whisperer have visions of me out with the horses, riding all day, crossing the western landscape with a cowgirl hat and boots or maybe even working in an indoor.  That is not at all my story.  While I occasionally feed, clean, and fill water tanks, I’m largely an indoor girl. Much of my time at ROTH is spent at my desk, packing shipments, on the phone with clients or hosts, or taking care of the myriad little tasks that supporting a small business requires.  Still, I do have horses and as much as my lifestyle heavily revolved around being on a horse when I was younger, in my older years, I simply wish to keep their company and to learn as much as I can about their language while maybe enjoying a trail ride here and there.

If I were an equine, I’d be a donkey, because you can’t push me. I have to want to do it and only on my schedule.  However, this year I became acutely aware that my chance to attend the HHC here in CO might be drawing to a close because of Anna wanting to bring the course to people around the world.  So after years of watching others go before me and learning what it was that I too wished to learn, 2019 was indeed my time to jump on it, and so I did.

I did not attend Part I of the HHC, but I figured that this many years of working for Anna and her graciously allowing me to attend and volunteer at some of the local clinics meant that I had enough exposure to the ideas and methods that  I could now jump in and “challenge” Part III of the Holistic Horse Course.  And, indeed, “challenged” was the right word to describe my two weeks at Zuma’s, as I struggled with catching up on all the material, all the notes, and the practicals that I had missed.  But however challenging it was for me, I so enjoyed being with everyone there, all the other students who helped me and who were patient with me, and who taught me what they had learned in the first part of their HHC.  Not to mention Katie, Safia, and Gino, who helped me immensely and included me in learning as I became the buddy to watch what it was they were doing so that I had a better idea when it was time for me to try the same.  And my gratitude extends to Anna, for allowing me to join you all while being entirely aware of all the gaps in my ROTH foundation that are simply the result of gathering bits and pieces here and there over the years.  You took those pieces and turned them into a complete and smooth picture for me, one with direction, clarity, and confidence that was entirely lacking before. 

To everyone who accompanied me on the journey and to the teachers, mentors, and horses who led us, THANK YOU and CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS!

The above image is of my allocated horse for the duration of the course, Pumpkin, Cari Simmons, who was handling Pumpkin to keep me safe while I did some blanket prep and spook busting, and myself.  I really fell in love with Pumpkin (and Cari for that matter) and I’m so blessed that I got to work with Pumpkin for those two weeks.

ROTH-testimonials

“I am lucky enough to have had many extraordinary adventures all over the world but the Holistic Horsemanship Modular course has blown my mind.  What a transformative, life-changing experience!” ~ Lorraine 

“As a licensed psychologist and horse owner, I provide equine facilitated psychotherapy as well as traditional psychotherapy. I enrolled in the ROTH Holistic Horsemanship Course to deepen my understanding of the language of equus and gain more skill and experience as a horsewoman. Anna’s immense capacity for understanding and working with horses on every level never ceases to amaze me. She has a unique ability to accurately gauge precisely what each student needs to learn and grow while simultaneously tailoring each lesson to the specific needs of the horse. This Course has far exceeded my expectations and has certainly added fuel to my passion for working with horses.” ~ -Jo Brilhart, RN, PsyD

 

Watch below as students from all around the globe immersed themselves into learning the language of Equus from the ground up at Anna’s HHC a couple of years back. With over 30 yrs of experience, Anna shares secrets in body language, inter-species communication and more.

The Morning Dawned And Goldie Was In Distress

A Mystery Illness Was At Hand

Called to the pasture at 5 am, I found my beloved mare flat out in unusual circumstances. She was being watched over by her companion and herd leader, Dillon, the Mustang. Clearly distressed and in discomfort, the mare was troubled and refused to eat even her favorite mash. Despite gut sounds, the diagnosis was unclear, and just hours later she was treated by the veterinarian for suspected colic, only there was no improvement for a prolonged period. Goldie continued to refuse her food and declined all placed in front of her, pawing on the ground as she remained withdrawn. Friend of the family, Dr. Rachel Heart, followed the call of this precious mare and offered to visit. This visit changed the lives of Goldie, her daughter, Dahlia, the herd, and all those watching, for they were about to witness a major miracle!

In Partnership with Horses as Healers

Equine Facilitated Learning or Equine Facilitated Therapy is a vast ocean of nuances and subtleties. What means something to one person might be misinterpreted or completely misunderstood by another. We can’t really assess a horse to see if they would be as a therapy horse and Anna Twinney (founder of Reach Out to Horses and life coach for over 30 years) explains why in this lecture at the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo. She also goes into how we can support our therapy and coaching horses to make sure that the exchange is not a one-way transaction of them only supporting us.
