A lovely time had by all, as is obvious based on all the smiles!  Share in the testimony that is the ROTH and Ann Twinney experience!

Laura Z. of Golden, CO

“This has been the most transformative experience.  I had no idea what to expect and was challenged, pushed past my comfort zone, and I am anxious to see how my new perspective carries out once I return home.”

 

Siri Y. of Brynsvegen, Norway

“I enjoyed every minute!”

 

Carol P.H. of Poway, CA

“It was a life-changing experience.  The Bitterroot Ranch is magical.  Anna is a very caring person and it comes out in her training.  Interacting with the horses is wonderful.  They love Reiki and give back as much as they receive.”

 

Suzette B. of Pasadena, CA

“The Reach Out to Horses Clinic included liberty and ground work with horses, and Reiki (direct, long distance, and for horses), as well as trail riding at the beautiful Bitterroot Ranch.  The highlights for me were the life lessons and the liberty work, where I learned not to plan so much and allow for a conversation with the horses.  And the ground work where I got to meet and groom a wonderful 2-year-old horse.”

 

Asha W. of Longmont, CO

“A truly magical experience.”

 

Katrina S. of West Granby, CT

“This time at the Bitterroot Ranch with Anna was one of the most wonderful times of my life.  It was truly magical.  I can’t wait to share my new self.”

 

Chuck H. of Ridgefield, CT

“A life-changing experience that was full of challenges yet rewarding beyond imagination for the mind, body, and soul.”

 

Heather, L.H. Of CO Springs

“There are no words to express my experience this week.  Truly life transforming.  This was my second clinic with Anna and I know I am changed again:  The horses, the healing, the passion, the bonding, and the life lessons – Truly amazing.”

 

Nancy M. of Green Bay, WI

“Powerful transformations with not only yourself but your horse/animals.  Let Anna guide you on this magical journey of awakening.”

Love you, XXOO”

 

Catherine H.  of Ridgefield, CT

“Anna Twinney’s Healing Horses Workshop has been the experience of a lifetime.  It has expanded my heart and increased my confidence with horses.  Our group bonded quickly and I feel I have formed friendships that will continue to grow.”

 

Thanks to all the participants who joined Anna on this lovely retreat and blessings as they go back out into the world with a new perspective on life and what they can do to support all those in their lives with Reiki!

ROTH Certified Trainer/Instructor Elaine’s Account of How to Best Begin to Capture the Whisper

Words of Wisdom from the ROTH Trainer/Instructor who conducted Horse Whispering 101:

There are a great many levels to horsemanship, but we all start at the beginning. And it is where we begin that we either have to build upon or to overcome.  By this logic it would be much more efficient to start from a place that won’t cause you to back track.  It is the minority who have their first experiences with horses taught with the horse in mind; whether it be a simple riding lesson that is entirely in the saddle with little to no bonding from the ground, or a child growing up on a ranch with less concern for the well-being of the animals, there are long-standing professionals who never know what is literally and physically under their noses… and their butts.  They will have a longer way around to the truth than someone who is shown the potential of equal partnership from the gate.

But even if you are in the thick of the old way of working horses and you had an experience that caused fear around horses, or you seemed to have waited a lifetime to make that first touch, it is a great time to start listening and to let the truth sink in.  Horse whispering isn’t a mystical power; it is not granted to a select few. It is something with which we are all born. It is compassion and it is love.  Our stories will, at times, either try to pull us away or they will guide us towards this way of being.  It is our responsibility to reach for the betterment of all in the process.

It was an honor to help five amazing women find this truth as they embarked on a new chapter of working with horses. Teaching the Horse Whispering 101 Course this year at Happy Dog Ranch, in Littleton, CO, was a magical week of wonder and joy. The horses and the team at the ranch helped to facilitate the journey and make real change in the lives they so graciously hosted.

Nothing but gratitude to Anna and Vin for making it all possible,

Elaine Ackerly

ROTH Certified Trainer/Instructor

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.

Giving The Horses a Voice in Fall City, Washington

Giving Our Horses a Voice

By Jim “Hutch” Hutchins, Director of Education, NWNHC

Our horse has no voice if we do not listen. This is one of my favorite quotes and the main reason I have had Anna Twinney bring the Reach Out To Horses program to the Northwest Natural Horsemanship Center (NWNHC) for the last three years.  Listening is not just trying to figure out what our horse wants, but understanding him holistically and “hearing” what he has to say.  Again this spring Anna helped us all become more in-tune with our horses with an amazing mix of animal communication, TLC, liberty and driving training.

In just three days, twenty-one students and auditors found in themselves and their horse new levels of understanding, knowledge and growth.  But most importantly…progress.  It was amazing to see horses and humans take incredible strides in resolving issues, balancing their horse’s emotions and creating an active, two-way conversation.  In the liberty and driving sessions there were many emotional moments. There was nary a dry eye when a long-neglected horse finally found it had a voice and partner in its new owner.  And the new owner found the potential she knew the horse had.

For the first time, we also had an evening workshop on animal communication.  The thirty-three participants included horse enthusiasts and pet lovers who wanted to better understand inter-species communication and how it can help them with their animal relationships.  As anyone who has done an animal communication class with Anna can tell you, we learned to be more in touch with our own sensitivity and how to interpret and channel the “sixth sense” we all feel at times.

Thank you, Anna, for opening our minds and our hearts.  And thank you for helping us truly give our animal companions a voice.

Anna’s Communication with Horses in Action 3/2/1
Reaching Out in the Round Pen
Do you chase your horse in the round pen or do you drive your horse?  
The difference; one is dominance based and the other leadership based. 
 
Do you consider all natural horsemanship lineages to be the same?  
This is not a training technique, this is about the language of the horse, a silent language beyond the spoken words.  
 
Are you looking for obedience, control and compliance?
We are not, we look for collaboration.  
____________________________________________________________________________
Do you really know what you are saying to your horse?

In this, the third of the Reach Out to Horses® DVD series you will see just how effective the Round Pen can be in training your horse.  Anna and her students will show you how to use the Round Pen to create the ultimate foundation for a relationship with your horse, introduce the saddle or even solve your most challenging horse related problems.

dvd4-main

You will learn how to:

  • Talk to your horse through your body language, energy & intention
  • Create a 2-way communication system with your horse
  • Use your eyes like a pro in the Round Pen
  • Understand how horses perceive your actions and the how’s behind the why’s.
  • Determine when the Round Pen is not the right tool for the job
  • And much, much more…

When combined with the horse’s language, the RP will open up a whole new world for you and your horse.  You will finally learn how to resolve your Round Pen issues and gain the leadership with your horse.  Through communication, honesty and mutual respect you will be able to create the trust-based relationship crucial to a good partnership with your horse.  Create a lexicon that far exceeds the RP environment and experience a language that goes beyond body gestures.

Anna’s Courses Are All Set to Go! From Untouched Horses, to Foals and Problem Solving, it’s ALL Here!

The starting process (aka breaking) under saddle is one of the most impressionable times of a young horse’s life.  If done correctly you move smoothly into an ever-lasting partnership, if done incorrectly you spend many hours, weeks, months or even years figuring out their history and reassuring them of a non-violent future.   
During this week you will learn and practice gentle communication methods.  These methods are proven, with positive results around the Globe, in all equine disciplines.  They are highly effective, safe and very efficient for not only young un-started horses but also to reestablish a more cooperative relationship with mature horses as well. Click the link below to learn more about this course and to register.

Gentling foals can be some of the most important and rewarding work you will ever do. Over the course of 7 days you will learn Anna’s unique and comprehensive methodologies for introducing these young horses to the world of humans and training.
We want our foals to feel safe, 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 now it’s your turn to join Anna for a week of fun, friends and foals.

Imagine being pulled out of your home, away from your family and friends and taken to an unknown place where you are introduced to foreigners who do not speak your language. This is exactly what these symbols of freedom so often experience. By understanding and attuning to these magnificent creatures, and seeing the world through their eyes, you will begin to master their language.
Immerse yourself in a 7-day workshop. This is a unique opportunity to observe wild horses in their natural habitat. You will begin to understand non-verbal communication with the natural world, be introduced to herd dynamics and develop a bond through building a trust-based relationship. Click the link to learn more about this very important course and to register!

Anna began the R.M.H.E. experience with a day of Saddling-Up with ROTH!  To her surprise, 75% of her equine students were Tennessee Walking Horses (TWH) and a true delight they were – with a “try” greater than Mount Everest.  From creating a stronger bond, through to spook-busting, pain management assessment, standing for mounting and exploring benefits for horses, handlers, and riders this intimate group of enthusiasts walked away with overflowing pride!

2017 Brings me my third year of having the honor of being on the ROTH team for the Expo.  Fortunately, I had discovered that the expo occurs on my Spring Break, and since Boulder is my home, I am able to slip in a quick visit with my mother before heading for the several day event of long hard hours of lots and lots of work, plus horses galore!  We all love to grumble, the days get intensely long, but I rather doubt any of us on the team don’t on some level love what we are doing…based on our firm belief in, faith, and absolute loyalty to Anna Twinney and her nonstop authenticity for the horses (and their people).  And of course, Vin.  I would be remiss to not mention Vin’s undying leadership (ahem) and assignment of tasks.  He likes that booth a ‘certain way’…often not at all the same as Anna…..and on we go!

“A highlight from our time at the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo!
YouTube video footage coming soon. Deep gratitude to Anna Twinney for her generous heart endorsement for the Nokotas!” ~ Mari Rubens
Hello Anna and team,
 
My Mum and I attended a few of your clinics at the Rocky Mountain Expo this weekend, we really enjoyed your sessions and learned a lot about horse communication.
 
We recently adopted 2 young BLM Mustangs, a 2yr old mare, and a 3yr old gelding. I had been struggling to get a good connection with the gelding for months. When we got home today, I gave him full eye contact and used some of the body language cues you showed in the expo, and we finally had a breakthrough! He was much more responsive to me in the pasture and the round pen, and a lot more respectful of my space (he’s usually very pushy).
 
Thank you so much for the excellent advice, and for sharing your knowledge!
 
Kind Regards,
 
Megan Sprot
