On the evening of the Trainer’s Day, Zuma’s Celebrated their 10th Anniversary with a masquerade ball. Paul and Jodi humbly expressed their gratitude to all the people who help contribute to Zuma’s efforts, and one notable mention was ROTH and Anna.
“For 9 years, Anna and the ROTH Methods have been a big part of Zuma’s platform. Together, Anna, Katie, and Jodi have spent hours discussing and taking action upon ways to make the world a better place through compassionate equine education programs. Anna’s clinics and courses at Zuma’s have generated much-needed training for horses and humans, along with funding in the process. Anna’s presence at Zuma’s has brought global donors to our mission by way of international student participation in ROTH at Zuma’s. Partnerships like ours have been mutually beneficial for both ROTH and Zuma’s. The horses receive training, revenue, and sponsorship, and ROTH expands its training methods to Zuma’s base of supporters.”
And to Anna and Vin,
“As you develop your awareness in nature, you begin to see how we influence all life and how all life influences us. A key and critical feature for us to know.” -Tony TenFingers/Wanbli Nata’u, Ogalala Lakota
Walking amongst the silent ones at Zuma’s we are keenly aware of the positive influence your contributions and generosity have had on all of our lives. Thank you for your kindness and your gifts.
In Peace and Gratitude,
Jodi & Paul
Jodi’s husband, Paul, also read a poem that he composed on behalf of the decades of efforts on Jodi’s part for all of the animals. Enjoy!
By the edge of the pines, at the foot of Wendy’s Hill,
is a place called Zuma’s, where time stands still.
Where the friends of woman and man do run,
when their time of despair is over and done.
For here, between this reality and the next,
is a place where beloved creatures find rest.
On this golden land, they wait, learn and play,
til The Rainbow Bridge (Adoption) they cross over one day.
No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
for here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed.
Their bodies have healed with strength imbued.
They trot through the grass without even a care,
til one day they whinny and sniff at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes sharp and alert.
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the herd.
For just at that second, there’s no room for remorse.
As they see each other…one person…one horse.
So they run to each other, these friends from long past
The time of their parting is over at last.
The sadness they felt while they were apart
has turned to joy once more in each heart.
They nuzzle with a love that will last forever.
And then, side-by-side, they cross over to forever…together.
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.

Each year I travel to the U.S. to continue my studies in Holistic Horsemanship with Reach Out to Horses. This month I completed the ‘Foal Gentling’ course in Sherwood, Oregon at Wild Horse Mountain Ranch. The 10 tribal foals we were partnered with had been separated from their moms and orphaned; they are only 4 months old. Luckily they were rescued by the Warm Springs Horse Network and given a second chance, PTL!
I was paired with the littlest baby of the group, a sensitive boy who showed us very quickly how big his heart is and how brave he is. By day 3, I realized that I wasn’t over there just to learn about foals and the language of the horse but to meet a soul mate and help him live the life he envisions for himself. With the guidance of my mentors and a mind-blowing offer from an awesome lady, it became possible for me to adopt the little boy I worked with, Atlantis.
The awesome lady, Melody (who took on 3 other foals as well!!!), will be taking Atlantis and his friends home to live with her. This means driving them from Oregon to the East Coast i.e. across the whole of America. This will cost at least $500 per foal, not to mention their vet bills for health certificates to cross State lines. Once Atlantis has healed and grown a bit more, he will get to decide if he wants to come live with us in England (yes, he has a choice;)).
I signed up for the ROTH Foal Gentling Course after unexpectedly losing my beloved Clydesdale, Aramis. I had hoped to honor his memory and find a little bit of peace and healing. I certainly didn’t expect to feel an immediate bond with one of the foals! That first morning when I stood at the gate, watching the foals, the little liver chestnut picked up his head and stared right at me. I felt an instant connection, the same I had felt with Aramis. Then Anna chose him as my foal, the one with whom I would work for the week. I couldn’t believe it. By the second day of working with Quincy, I knew he was meant for me. I truly believe that Aramis guided me to the training so that Quincy and I could find each other. Aramis knew Quincy needed me and I needed him. The choice to bring home the Cremello girl, Ilse, happened gradually. I was so impressed with her gentle, steady nature and her intelligence. After listening to Anna’s stories of horses that didn’t have the right companionship growing up and how it affected them, I knew Quincy needed a friend. I felt Ilse would be a wonderful choice because her steady, quiet confidence would help Quincy find his. They make a wonderful pair. Ilse doesn’t push Quincy around and already Quincy looks to her when something makes him nervous. I feel so blessed to have connected with these two gentle souls and I look forward to many years of love, partnership, and companionship with them.
Quincy was the youngest of the 10 foals that participated in the ROTH gentling class. He is a beautiful liver chestnut with a white star and two white hind feet. He is curious and alert. He likes to watch what everyone is doing around him and is very playful. He will try to play with anything new you bring into his pen. He doesn’t spook easily but does lack confidence sometimes. His “sister” is helping with that.
Ilse is a beautiful Cremello with light blue eyes. She is built like a little tank and has the most amazing mohawk. She is calm, steady, confident, and intelligent. She learns incredibly fast and seems unflappable. She is patient with Quincy and his antics. She is very mature for her age.

Students who attended Anna’s recent events at 13 Hands Rescue and Half Halt Farms reached out to share their joy and gratitude with Anna for all she does for the horses and their people….
“We could not absorb Anna’s gifts of knowledge, wisdom, and inspiration fast enough! We are full of hope, dreams, and renewal after our weekend. I wish everyone could experience Anna! She has so much to offer. Our 2 day clinic will help our volunteers help our horses in so many ways. Thank you, Anna.”
“Extremely powerful and paradigm-shifting experience. Anna has a unique gift and helps you tap into yours. I am a professor and taught the best class of my career the week following our clinic with Anna. I was connected in a way I never have been before. Everything clicked. Thank you, Anna.”
“I just want to say how much we have all been changed by your magnificent Anna. She is awesome, amazing, knowledgeable, supportive, honest, gracious… I could go on but think you get it. Every attendee feels the same way.”
“The two -day exploration of collaborative horsemanship clinic with Anna Twinney was one of the best experiences of my life thus far. The clinic has left me with many wonderful memories that I will cherish for many years to come. Anna was amazing to watch as she worked with our rescue horses. She is a true horse whisperer. I was in awe of her knowledge, confidence, positive energy, compassion, and spirituality. I learned so many wonderful things and now look at these beautiful rescues somewhat differently than before, because I can somewhat understand their language now. I am truly humbled and incredibly grateful to have been a part of such a magical weekend. It is my hope that Anna will return next summer for another soul-filling, beautiful, and amazing horsemanship clinic.”
~Mary Ellen B.
“Thank you all for connecting after the event. It was a fabulous experience sharing our vulnerabilities, energy and love for the horses.
I feel incredibly blessed and grateful to have met you all and to be able to learn from Anna.
Until we all meet again, many blessings, peace, joy and continuous great health.
And to Anna,
Thank you for all you do to teach mindful partnership with horses. I was able to audit one day at Half Halt but I have hopes to make the next clinic in NY with my horse, Destiny. It would be amazing to share this with her. Thanks again!”
I hope you don’t mind me calling you that. Not too long ago, for most of us, we were strangers on a group email with names we may not have recognized. Thanks to Anna, we have come together. Our lives forever changed. Memories created, raw emotions exposed, storied told, fears uncovered, sharing a forever and unexplained bond with each other and these beautiful and majestic creatures that we love so much.
Anna, thank you for your compassion, honesty, and adaptability to every single horse and handler. You have a brilliant gift. Your wisdom and guidance will never be forgotten.
Laura, you planned this event seamlessly. Every detail was well-thought-out and communicated beautifully! You are greatly appreciated.
In the words of one of my favorite country artists, “I’ll see you when I see you, and I hope it’s one day soon….”
All my love to all and much-continued success on this amazing journey!”
~ Nancy R.
I personally wanted to walk away this past weekend with “tools” to help me build both my and my horse’s confidence. What I got back so much more. Anna, your incredible insight and knowledge helped us all understand that we need to earn the trust of our horses. You offered each of us a bridge to connect with our horses’ hearts! I can’t thank you enough. Words just don’t convey the depth of our gratitude.
Looking forward to when our paths cross again.”
~ Carolyn C.
We would like to thank all participants for joining us and the many horses for sharing their language with all of those curious and passionate enough to listen. To our master teachers, we are grateful!
