ROTH spreads the love and pays it forward to the Hallelujah Horses

ADayofHorseWhispering

Anna returns to Zuma’s THIS SATURDAY.  If you missed us on January 20th, not to worry! Anna is back on February 3rd to share with us another Day of Horse Whispering. Specific requests were made to address trailer loading and long lining, or ground driving. So if you did join us already, this Saturday will not see the same material covered twice. Working with Anna is like stepping into a river; you can never step into the same river twice. Join us for all new information at Zuma’s on behalf of the Colorado Unwanted Horse Association and discover the subtle art that is understanding the Language of Equus.

And in gratitude, Zuma’s shared the following in their Newsletter:

Anna and Vin of the ROTH organization have graciously decided to donate the door fees for the Jan. and Feb. horse training clinics. This donation will go directly to the care and training of the two Hallelujah horses: Ariel and Saphiel. These horses were brought in for the ROTH Trainer’s Week held at Zuma’s in October. This was an unexpected pair of horses to provide care for. This contribution will help the pair of well-deserving mares and not hurt the bottom line for the resident healing herd here at Zuma’s.

Partnerships with like-minded horse professionals bring about many good things for the horse world. Grateful for ROTH and CUHA for bringing this important, low-cost education program to the horse world here in Colorado.

Here is a quote from one of the participants of the Anna Twinney Clinics Presented by CUHA

“Thank you for the opportunity to attend a clinic from a true expert in her field, Anna Twinney. I have been intrigued by her clinics for a number of years; however, the cost was well out of my reach. The funding offered through CUHA allows for Anna’s message to be spread further, and beyond the constraints of economic boundaries. The clinic was a wide brushstroke of her overall philosophy, experience, and methodology used with horses in need. The demonstrations with a few horses from Zuma’s Rescue Ranch was invaluable. I am looking forward to attending the next
clinic on 2/3/2018.”

Sincerely,
Cheri Pluta

In turn, we would like to thank Jodi Messenich of Zuma’s Rescue Ranch for providing us with a stellar facility and wonderful horses with whom to demo.  We would also like to thank Jodi for her tireless efforts on behalf of the horse, not only providing care but also lobbying on their behalf.  Jodi, you ROCK!

We would also like to thank all of the attendees of the Jan 20th event.  Many of them went above and beyond the registration fee and left donations for the horses.  Without such great people with the interest in finding a better way, the horses would not flourish as easily.

THANK YOU!!!

Solar Tank Ideas for More Facile Winter Survival

Excalibur Oversees the Daily Functioning of ROTH”s solar tank…

It’s great to live in Colorado where if you don’t enjoy the weather, wait fifteen minutes – it will change. Getting multiple seasons in a day can be enticing for those who like change, but it still doesn’t change the fact that winter water storage always has its challenges. Fortunately, we get an extraordinary amount of sunlight in the winter, and strong sun at that, since we sit at over 6700 feet in elevation here at the ROTH ranch. Building anything here that uses passive solar is always worth a try, and on top of that, my over-analytical science mind was thrilled to have an experiment on my hands.

Passive solar troughs have been tried all over the States.  Some companies have marketed their own with added bells and whistles. The tanks created for the ranch here were straightforward and functional, while still looking neat and well thought-out. The tank pictured here cost less than $300 and could be done over a weekend with one or two people. While I am no carpenter, I found the trough was rather simple to construct, even solo. For larger tanks it is helpful to have another person as the frame becomes heavy quickly with all the 2x4s and plywood. One of the best parts in creating the tank frame is just how customizable it is in choosing the preferred kind of wood, thickness of plywood, layers of insulation, and what costs could be mitigated depending on where the tank frame will live.

Because of the large drinking hole on the lid, the tank is rather susceptible to cold air during below-freezing days. During the colder freezes we’ve had in the last several weeks, the tanks will often have a <1 inch sheet of ice on them at morning feeding, though the ice is often not attached to the sides of tank due to the insulation. This allows the horses to still easily push the ice layer down to be able to drink. For two weeks of 0-25 degree F temps, the frame held the tanks warm enough that breaking ice was not necessary. Another tank with no insulated frame in the same area, our “control” tank if you will, routinely had 4-6 inches of ice that required breaking throughout day due to constant re-freezing.

Where this tank really makes its money is the Suntuf greenhouse sheets on the front. When placed appropriately, this seemingly simple piece collects the energy from our strong solar rays, stores it efficiently between the layers of the two sheets, and distributes it throughout the frame during the daylight hours and likely into the night as well. Though the tank gains efficiency based on how tightly sealed and insulated it is made as a whole, access to a sunny, south-facing location is key to keeping the water above freezing. Any ice that does manage to accumulate throughout cold winter nights has melted during several hours of sun or by mid-day. Most incredibly this even happens with freezing daytime temps.

After almost two decades of wintertime ice-breaking, it was incredibly satisfying to see this passive solar trough frame work so well. If you are over the physical (and sometimes psychological) burden of breaking ice, and you have some sun to work with, I highly recommend giving this a try. You, too, could be doing a happy dance while putting away your ice-breaking tool of choice… for the rest of the year!
 

We owe this idea finding us to ROTH Certified Trainer, Katie Dixon.  Katie emailed us with the details from Mother Earth News and our ROTH intern, Kate Fink, got cracking to make one for the ponies here at Reach Out Ranch.  If you are interested in the details of how this tank was made, please contact Lacey@reachouttohorses.com for all the details.

 

 

 

 

Anna Reaches Out to her English Roots…

ROTH is excited to be partnering with the Western Horse UK Horsemanship Journal to help bring Anna’s message all the way back to her roots in the UK!  This is the December 2017 publication.  Read along as she discusses the benefits of a personal program vs slotting all horses into a cookie cutter system that is one-size-fits-all for training.

A favorite quote:  “If you are looking for total compliance then I would strongly suggest you buy a motorcycle.”

Can we get a “Here, Here?!”

Always celebrating the individual and free nature of our favorite species, Anna’s approach is truly unique and the results can be obviously seen in how the horses respond.UK magazineUK magazine 2

Connections Matter… A FREE Webinar for the Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur

DON’T GIVE UP!
FREE Coaching Webinar for the Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur

We just finished up our 2017 Animal Communication Mentorship Program and many of our graduates are excited to take their new found (or newly refined) skills to the world, and help as many animals (and their people) as they can.

But when it comes to creating a business out of animal communication, healing, horses, or any service-based business really, it’s easy to look around and think, it’s all too aggravating, too hard, too scary… It’s all just too much. Before you know it, you are paralyzed, unable to move forward on the exciting dream you had.

This is why our good friend, Business Miracles Mentor, Heather Dominick, created a really unique LIVE webinar class specifically for highly sensitive people like you. She will teach you things like:

what to do when you feel overwhelmed so it doesn’t stop you in your tracks
what you need to prioritize during your business day (so it feels good, gets done and generates income)
who you need to speak to in order to attract your ideal clients (and how it doesn’t need to feel all that intimidating)

She’ll be teaching this class on Tuesday, January 10th – Just click this link to get your seat: https://energyrich.isrefer.com/go/webinar/AnnaTwinney

Heather says that for Highly Sensitive Entrepreneurs it can be tempting, when it all feels like too much, to shut down, contract, and try to protect yourself at all costs (or go into chaotic, panicky road runner mode). When what’s actually happening is that you are receiving a call to OPEN UP, not give up!

It’s an opportunity to consider the possibility that there might be another way.

That’s exactly what she’ll be teaching you on this LIVE webinar class… and it’s FREE. Click here to register: https://energyrich.isrefer.com/go/webinar/AnnaTwinney

As you know, we don’t often promote other people or other programs. We believe in earning, and keeping, your trust. We don’t want to waste your time selling everything under the sun for a few extra dollars.

We only tell you about people and programs that we consider effective and special. Heather is one of those people, and her coaching for Highly Sensitive Entrepreneurs is one of those programs.

The webinar is free and Heather, like us, won’t waste your time. She is filling that webinar with content-rich material.

You’ve got nothing to lose but the fears and habits that are holding you back!

2018 is calling for Business Miracles!

P.S. Almost forgot. She’ll be opening up the floor for a LIVE Q&A at the end, too. So be sure to get your seat here: https://energyrich.isrefer.com/go/webinar/AnnaTwinney

ROTH Connects with Rescues and Non-Profit Organizations!

Non-profit support

“Every Year ROTH brings their training methods and clinics to Zuma’s, paying a facility fee and assisting with the training of horses. These clinics and the funding they generate help to offset the cost of the healing herd here at Zuma’s, as well as assist in getting some of the herd trained.” – Zuma’s
To Jodi and the Zuma’s Staff, we return the gratitude as you always provide us a magnificent facility and wonderful horses with whom to practice and share the methods. We appreciate all you do for the horses. A very sincere and heart felt thank you right back at you guys!

Anna & the Animals: A Glimpse Into Conversations
“Words failed me today during my consultation with an incredible dog diagnosed with an aggressive cancer. She did not describe herself to be stoic, but instead held a warrior’s energy. She did not describe it to be fighting, but instead choosing life. Rather than heaviness around this Christmas season, she chose to focus on health and well being. If we could only bottle this feeling for all to hold during such challenges we all would have a feeling of peace and understanding.”   ~ Anna

Anna’s New Book, Blind Leap of Faith, in the News!

The first chapter of Anna’s new book was previewed in The Horse’s Hoof, a publication with whom we have been happy to partner over 2017, and now into 2018!
Blind Leap of Faith
Aptly named, Anna’s forthcoming book, out in late 2018, is the tale of her courageous decision to leave life, love, and a career behind in pursuit of a dream. She also shares how her foundation as a professional in the horse industry began and developed.
Many don’t know about Anna’s time at Flag is Up Farms with the legendary Monty Roberts® and all that she did in the early part of her career. Blind Leap of Faith™; A horsewoman’s journey with the legendary Horse Whisperer Monty Roberts® chronicles key  stories from that time, including her experience as a British police officer and the emotional turmoil it caused. You’ll get a glimpse into how Anna became who she is today, her time with Monty and her mentor, Crawford Hall, and some of the horses that influenced her the most along the way.
As a special holiday treat, we have released the first prologue chapter for you to read FREE!  We hope you enjoy this little sneak peek.
An Excerpt from Blind Leap of Faith
All Roads Lead to Flag
“PC 4244 Twinney, you are required to report in.” My heart sank as I heard those familiar words jump out of the patrol car radio, I instantly felt nauseous. My intuition must have kicked in because I asked my colleague to pull over. I quickly leaped out of the Panda, the endearing nickname we gave our small patrol car, and began to heave, shake, and cry.  As the only rape trained officer on duty I knew I had no choice but to comply. It was my second rape investigation call for that week and my body was telling me that I could not cope with another.

Learning to Listen to Rescue Animals & Discovering Soul Contracts

AC-Evening-CA.jpg

Begin to Discover your personal power!

Join Anna for an introduction to Animal Communication. You’ll learn in just a few short hours the possibilities that exist when you open your mind, your eyes and your heart to listen to animals in all the ways they communicate with you. From very tangible body language and their very own audible noises to telepathy, Anna guides you into interspecies communication.  
AC-2DAY-CA

Delve Deeper, in Support of Rescues

In this two-day workshop, Anna will help students explore all avenues of Animal Communication with focus on supporting rescue animals. Students will grow in their intuition, their ability to observe and to discern messages in all their formats. Beyond this, the realization that our animals have a life’s purpose just as we do will come to light. Students will begin to understand that animals are often reflecting to us what we need, not only to help them, but often for self-actualization for you. Even more beautiful and magical is the soul connection and contract that can be revealed when one truly endeavors to open heart, mind, and spirit to our animal companions.
