Trailer Loading Trauma and Trials Turned Triumph!

I would say that one of the greatest frustrations for all horse people can be trailer loading.  In fact, people experience such frustrations with this facet of horsemanship that one need not search too long to find a horse who either doesn’t load or who panics once they get into the trailer, only to run out backward in a very dangerous attempt to flee. Trailer loading takes patience, compassion, and most of all, the ability to catch the whisper in the eye of the horse so as to maximize our time frame to respond.

Trailer loading issues translate to all continents, all languages, and all types of horsemanship.  Thus, it was no surprise to find a couple of horses in Singapore who had been through the process of developing a system to keep themselves out of a trailer.  Both of the horses you will see in the videos on this newsletter have had trailering trauma, with the second actually having been in a loading accident.  Very fortunately, the caring and lovely souls at EQUAL take these horses exactly where they are and work with what they’ve got.  They do their very best to meet every need and to ensure that the trauma of these wonderful horses will stay where we wish it never was in the first place, in their past.

Animal Communication In Action

Pictured below: Anna with EQUAL Barn Manager, Tommy, who could double for the voice of Morgan Freeman!

Anna and Tommy Barn Manager(002)

I found myself amongst a new group of people today and an unfamiliar culture who had never experienced telepathic communication with horses. I took another leap of faith as I closed my eyes and gave a voice to one of the horses. There would be no turning back. I was hoping for something a little more mellow than what we had just experienced in our last energy experiential learning session. Having just watched a horse be triggered to what seemed to be PTSD. She was a little different from the others and drew attention through her sadness. In just seconds she revealed the ins and outs of the organization. Eager to share her concerns and in turn her wishes. She listed all ensuring no leaf was left unturned. I thought she may have been more guarded having seen her eye, but she chose to show up fully. When asked to describe specific staff she gave concise descriptions matching each one – her discernment undeniable and astounding. The hot walker was not for her but she asked to be included on the jockeys riding list instead of being left out despite her leg condition. She named her preferred riders spoke of her bit and style of riding. Her suggestions for stall drainage design were remarkable and matched those for the farrier. In support of the curriculum, she brought forward ideas to move forward. She explained her need to examine and trust future trailers while she didn’t feel she had a loading issue since it was A matter of caution since the accident. This and more came out of our time together painting a thorough picture and shedding light on all aspects, staff queries and suggestions. Out of the mouth of the horse we solved mysteries. In turn, her emotions were displayed throughout as she finally leaped with joy and released tension through running and play. And all because the organization was open and willing to hear. I applaud them for inviting me to visit and receive maybe more than they had envisioned their horse training would be. This isn’t simply any natural horsemanship training this is the uniqueness of ROTH training. It’s unparalleled.

A Good Mentor’s Voice Resonates Long After You Leave Their Classroom

We flew in to see Crawford Hall my mentor, friend and the man who “walked me down the aisle” many years ago.   At 3 months old, Joseph met him in WY and it was important to me for him to meet this incredible man who’s wisdom spreads from his wheelchair to thousands. His impact immeasurable on the horse world. We held hands, sang, watched horse racing together and shared the most important aspects of ourselves: time. Our visits enhanced with friends as we gathered by his bedside. Separated by space only our hearts stay connected as Joseph and he share their bond.

Ask Anna… about Sloths?!

“Ok so my question would be how does the ‘sloth’ know when he will be better?  Humans can’t even judge that like, ‘oh I will be recovered fully in a year ???’ So do animals have that ability to self-analyze or is there denial involved (wishful thinking) that he wants to believe he will get better? But it was really impressive to say the least. Thanks”
~David Trueslayor
 
Anna’s Response:
“Through the decades of talking with animals, there have been many times when I ask myself this same question.  It’s the inquisitive mind that allows us to explore beyond the norm and to realize there is so much we have yet to discover.  It never ceases to amaze me what the animals pick up from our conversations, our intentions, and even our minds. There are things they know about us that we don’t always realize about ourselves.  I believe that some animals are able to tell when and how their bodies are healing.  They can sense their well-being and even recite aspects of conversations they have overheard from the veterinarians.  There will be times when they are able to stay out of their own way and connect with a higher power, maybe their higher self or spiritual side.  It’s refreshing to know they feel, watch, even monitor their healing and can tell us things about their well-being to confirm scientific studies and results.  Often it’s much like us, through a conversation we can support the professional field to piece together symptoms and signs and I do believe that is much of what occurs as a whole..while the exceptions keep us exploring different answers.”

“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
