A Rave Review for Escaping Tradition

ROTH Certified Trainer and student Instructor, Katie Dixon of Renegade Equine in Bend, OR, received the following review from one of her local clients with regards to Escaping Tradition.  Please enjoy as the trust-based methods continue their reach far and wide.

Katie

I am the mother of a 12 year old girl who has fallen in love with horses. Our whole family loves all animals and are very sensitive to their individual personalities. Bits, Spurs, whips and other methods of training horses was just not working for my daughter (or me) mentally or emotionally. Luckily, I found the book Escaping Tradition and knew this was the training philosophy that would work for my daughter (and me!).

The goal of establishing a relationship out of respect and love works as a training method. Fear based anything for anyone is not a “true” relationship or training tool that should be used. These animals have a language and they have opinions and curiosity about us and the environment we put them in. How can we expect them to be successful and learn if we don’t listen to them? Why should they only have to listen to us? This book explains just that. The stories shared by individuals in the book, shows us a way of thinking about horses as equal partners and gives them the voice they need.

The personal experiences shared in the book are examples of what horses can do for humans on a much deeper level than performance. This book points out the “real” fact that all horses are different and we need to understand them and listen to them so we can have a rewarding successful experiences together. Trust is the foundation for all successful relationships. Why would it not be the same for horses. Would you trust someone who inflicted pain, or asks you to do things you do not enjoy, or worse never listens to you? Most humans would not trust or continue to work with someone who treated them that way. So, if we are to raise the next generation of horse trainers, owners, and advocates, then they must agree with this philosophy of training.

I can only hope the book gets into as many hands as possible. Vets, trainers, breeders and the young equestrians to be. The young people have not had years of training to unlearn, they are also much more open and sensitive to animals if allowed to be.

Thank you for writing it and I’m happy to promote it.

Oh the Colts, They Need a Startin’!

Join Anna and the ROTH Methods to discover the difference between starting and breaking…

coltstarting2019 (002)

 The process of  starting 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.Starting the Young Horse Clinic

Goals for students are to learn:

  • Creating a successful program from the ground-up
  • Reading individual horses varying in age, size, breed & background
  • Starting young horses under saddle
  • Demonstrating the starting of remedial horses
  • Methods to start horses in 30 minutes or less!
  • When to use a Round Pen &, more importantly, when not to use a Round Pen
  • How to take the individual horse from the Round Pen to the arena/trail
  • Creating a successful training program for the young horse
  • How to solve your Round Pen issues/overcome challenging situations
  • Bridging the gap from body language to rider!

Fancy a Frolic with the Foals?

Final foals 2019

Let us show you how to create a bond that can’t be broken.

Over the course of 7 days, Anna will introduce you to her unique and comprehensive foal gentling methodologies. Through gentle, compassionate, and supportive communication, you will discover how to quickly and effectively introduce foals to the world of humans, training, and even their own language. These techniques are also very effective for untouched and spooky horses, and to help solve the most frustrating behavioral issues with all your horses.

You will learn (and put to use) the same uniquely designed and tested program that Anna, herself, has developed and used to start hundreds of foals!

Gentling foals can be some of the most important and rewarding work you will ever do. In this case, your efforts are even more critical. The foals we work with in this event are untrained and rescued. So in addition to getting world-class, groundbreaking training, you are helping these innocent, rescued souls. You are giving them a loving, heart-filled introduction to the human-horse connection, and gaining a solid foundation that will help them in their lives. You are also helping them to gain a greater possibility of being adopted, and a second-chance at a life they deserve to live.
