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!

Our FREE Annual End of the Year Webinar Series is back!

Every year we put together a series of info-packed webinars to help you and your animal companions live happier, healthier lives, and create Spirit-lifting relationships.  We’ve done it again this year with a great twist!

The series will again be completely free. And the theme will be supporting, assisting, and healing animals in crisis.  In the last few months we have seen horrific tragedies.  Friends and family have been affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, along with the wildfires in California, and beyond, earthquakes, shootings, and more.  The list seems never ending. Whether they be at the hand of man or Mother Nature, it appears that unprecedented violence, destruction and tragedy are becoming commonplace in our world today.
Often we see animals, maybe even our own, suffering from a global catastrophe, a local tragedy, or even a personal event.  We want to help but we don’t know how.  Or what we try doesn’t work.
Join Anna and a few of her trusted advisors and friends to learn how to cope with trauma and crisis should you or your animals encounter such circumstances. 
We have a powerful line-up for you this year:
Nov 29th: From Trauma to Triumph: Supporting Animals During Crisis through Animal Communication.
Dec 7th: Essential Oils for Crisis & Trauma: with special guest Carol Komitor of Healing Touch for Animals.
Dec 21st: Nutritional Balance: Body, Mind & Spirit: with BOTH Dynamite Gold Executives, Dr. Regan Golob and Judy Sinner.
Dec 28th: Heroes for Horses: Learn how Natural Horsemanship or Horse Whispering can play an important role in helping horses cope during times of stress, trauma, or crisis. 
And here’s the fantastic twist! While the webinar series remains 100% FREE, we have teamed up with some amazing people to help some of our planetary companions who really need your support.
As I’m sure you know, Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricane Maria.  The country is a long way away from recovery, and many areas still don’t even have power! One of those devastated areas is the small Puerto Rican island of Vieques.  While other areas have received aid, Vieques hasn’t even gotten enough food and water for the population that live there.  
A GoFundMe campaign has been created for the famous band of Wild Horses that live on the island, and they are super close to reaching their goal!  We want to see that goal met so the horses can get the help they need.
Any amount is welcome and will help.  We hope you will join us in this small, but very achievable, mission.
Thank you!  We will see you soon.

Donate to Hurricane Relief Today

Hurricane Maria entered Vieques, PR, with over 155 mph winds and took everything the Viequenses had worked for their whole lives.  The only help from the government so far has been the National Guard supplying some food and water, but not enough for the whole island.  As CNN stated, while Vieques Island is only 7 miles from the mainland of Puerto Rico, it might as well be 7000 miles away …

(click the donate button below to read the rest of the story)

How Exactly Will Your Donation Support the Cause?
Vieques is home to a wild horse population who was impacted by the hurricane.  Grazing lands flooded and food became scarce.  Donations through this link will go to support the nutritional needs of the Wild Horses of the island.  Donate and help the horses who would otherwise be discarded as people are the main focus of relief efforts thus far.

Our gratitude to Source speaks when we hear of horses safely finding their way home after deviations in their lives.  With the cooperation of ROTH Certified Trainers, Lani Salisbury and Jill Haase, Anna was able to get Thelma ready to move on in her journey.  Thelma, it was a pleasure getting to know your beautiful and very willing soul.  Blessings and love on the rest of your journey!

Colorado Friends of the Horses we Love, We Request your Support

af7ffd43-6279-4eab-8c03-b8c781e2b7ba
Dear Colorado friends of the horses we love,
As some of you already know, in 2018 I am stepping away from many of the the day to day operations at Zuma’s Rescue Ranch and dedicating my time to legislation. 
Please join me by taking 10 min. a month to reach out to our legislators and protect America’s Horses, the innocent and iconic symbols of freedom. 
 
I will send you an email every month similar to this one asking for your help. Please share these emails with your Colorado horse loving friends. Help me make Colorado advocacy movement more active and effective. 
 
Below is quick and easy way to tell those that have the power to save America’s horses how you feel about the current proposal from the BLM advisory board to Kill 90,000 horses that are in long term holding.
Killing is not a solution. This is a band-aid to a problem the BLM has created. Needless to say there are other solutions to the wild horse population as well as the domestic horse issues.
Mass killing is not the answer, I hope we can agree on that…
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
Peace,
Jodi Messenich
Here are the talking points:
  • When calling your U.S. representative, say: My name is YOUR NAME and I am from Littleton, CO. As your constituent, I urge you to protect our nation’s horses from slaughter and our wild horses from mass extermination in the final FY18 Appropriations bill. Please also reach out to leadership and urge them to support these protections. Thank you.
     
  • When calling your U.S. senators, say: My name is YOUR NAME and I am from Littleton Colorado.  As your constituent and a strong supporter of equine welfare, I urge you to please support the Senate version of the Agriculture Appropriations bill, which prohibits the use of federal funds on horse slaughter. Please also support a prohibition on the use of our tax dollars to kill tens of thousands of wild horses and burros. Thank you.

Here are the contacts: some you need to go to the WEBSITE to get their contact form,  then copy paste the above requests.

A ROTH Herd Progress Report for Thelma: 3 GOLD Stars for our Belgian Beauty!

What might a personalized plan for a session with a ROTH Certified Trainer actually look like?  Join one of our most recent additions to the ROTH fold, Lani, as she works with Thelma, a Belgian Draft mare who is staying here at Reach Out Ranch.  Thelma joined us a few months ago from a feedlot and was terrified of all things human.  Her progress has been notable!  Read on and discover why Thelma deserves three gold stars for her week with Lani Salisbury!

11/6/17 ( 4:00 – 4:45 pm) Haltered, Groom, Leading practice, Head drops, Neck yields, backing.

A short session with Thelma reviewing what she had been practicing. Working toward more fluidity in walk, changing of speeds, and walking more next to us instead of slightly behind. As we practiced leading we incorporated stops, backing, and neck yields which she has improved on greatly and gets about half way on both sides. We also practiced head drops which still need focus. She would give slightly. Her backing is much improved and she is going off minimal pressure. We ended with grooming which she enjoyed. We planned for her next session to be pushed forward.

11/8/17 (3:15 – 4:20 pm) Haltered, Leading practice, Neck yields, Backing, Stopping, Turning, Change in speed, Leading next to us, Desensitizing

In this session we began with haltering. I brought the halter in with me right away which I personally haven’t done. I asked her to stand while I put the horseman’s rope over neck and moved to the haltering. I practiced being more casual with her haltering. She stood solid. We then moved into desensitizing after I brushed her mane. We desensitized with a survival blanket (silver, crinkly blanket). We started small. She was a little concerned with it at first but after we started and I let her see it and rewarded each try she became absolutely perfect with it. We expanded it getting bigger and falling all over her, making it noisy, flapping it, throwing it over her, and walking with it on her back. We spread it out as big as it could get and walked around her pen. We then practiced leading in and out of her pen, around the larger pen again practicing getting more fluid movement. Also working with her beside me. We changed speeds, stopped, backed, disengaged, neck yields. We then went back into her pen and I practiced with my hands around her front legs and hooves. Investigating what turned out to just be a rub of her hair. She was fantastic with the desensitizing and leading. We plan next session to bring more tools to desensitize, continue with picking up her feet, and bring in a few obstacles to practice leading.

11/10/17 (4:25 – 5:10)  Haltered, Leading, Desensitizing, Small Parachute on ground, Backing, Picking up front feet, Oils

In this session knowing it was getting dark soon we started with desensitizing to the small parachute. We started with it small and Thelma was only slightly concerned. She didn’t mind at all after a few rubs with it. We expanded quickly on both sides and walked with it at various parts of her body at different sizes. We also threw it all over her body, making it noisy, fast, and slow. We then played it on the ground to see how she felt with putting her feet on it. She was a little worried about it at first but very little. She started by putting one foot on then two. She was a little sticky at first on it but after a few minuets she was walking over it and stopping with all 4 feet on and backing over it. She enjoyed this! I then picked up her front feet twice. She needs more practice but did pick them up quick, needs work holding up. Once it was dark we continued by showing her some Oils. She LOVED it! She chose Peppermint, Ylang Ylang, Grounding, Peace & Calming, Believe, and Magnify your purpose. She liked a lot of them very much and would interact with her mouth, wiggling her lip and grabbing at the once she liked. She really enjoyed the and felt a little more personality come out. Her all time favorite oil was Magnify your purpose.

Our next sessions plan: Set up an obstacle course and bring her over obstacles (tarps, Parachutes, Poles, corridor), more desensitizing to more objects, prepare for heath checking, picking up feet/farrier prep, head drops.

And Thelma’s work the following session reflected all the hard work Lani has put into working with her!

Thelma Obstacle Course:

Tarp, Corridor, Poles, Noodles

Thelma rocked the Obstacle Course!  She did every obstacle on the first try.  We improved on our leading and more fluid and speed.  We stopped on each obstacle and backed off the tarp.  Her back is still a tad sticky, but she is willing.  We did obstacles from each direction and she enjoyed it.

With her feet:  We worked on picking up all four feet.  I could mostly pick up her front and hold them for a second.  Her hind feet we used the arm to pick up and hold up.  She was able this time to hold her hind feet up longer without pulling away.

Head drops still need some work.

We also used the arm to desensitize her around her hind and tail area.

These things will help prepare her for her travels and new beginning!

Lani and her mom, Jill, have both been doing a phenomenal job facilitating Anna’s work with our herd of three.  We are proud to call them ROTH Certified Trainers!  They embody important pieces of the ROTH mission: meeting the horse where they are, going at a pace that is unique to each individual, clearly communicating, and above all else, loving their work!  Great work, ladies!!!

Let them eat cake!

It is with tremendous pride that Anna and Reach Out to Horses welcome our newly certified trainers to the fold.  They have worked tirelessly, some since as far back as 2006, to develop their passion for and mastery of the Reach Out to Horses practices and methodologies.  To Dora, Ben, Lani, and Jill, CONGRATULATIONS on your accomplishment!  Your dedication and persistence have certainly paid off!  Welcome to the ROTH family and we are so pleased that we get to continue to watch each of you grow as you go out into the world and bring the ROTH flavor of Natural Horsemanship to the horses and their people!

 

A Trainer’s Exam Kind of Wonderful Day!

On Sunday, October 29th, Reach Out to Horses brought our day of Holistic Horsemanship to a number of interested folks as we watched our trainers strut their stuff!  Hosted by Zuma’s Rescue Ranch, the day was a great success as our four trainers demonstrated the types of things they had been working on throughout the week.  With Anna narrating it was much easier to note the subtle pieces of communication being exchanged between the horses and the trainers.  All of the proceeds went to Zuma’s Rescue Ranch, particularly to care for their two newest editions, the Hallelujah Horses, Ariel and Saphiel.

 Win/Win/Win!

IMG_1156

Elaine Nash, of Fleet of Angels and the Hallelujah Horses, was in attendance to see how the two mustangs had progressed over the week.  Hoping to find them homes through the event, all of the proceeds went to Zuma’s Rescue Ranch to support in the effort.  Pictured here are Jodi, our most lovely host at Zuma’s Rescue Ranch, Elaine, and Anna.  The Rescue was supported, the mustangs received critical training to help better their chances of finding a forever home, and our ROTH trainers had excellent horses with whom to work as they honed their skills and learned to truly capture the whisper. A win for everyone!

Reach Out to Horses would like to thank everyone who attended the event and who supported our trainers, the Rescue, and the Hallelujah Horses.  We also want to thank those who shared with us their four-legged companions so that our trainers would have an excellent experience and horses/burros who would help them develop the subtle skills that are such an integral part of everything ROTH.  We want to thank all of our supporters as this event was a hit!  THANK YOU!!!

Did you miss this year’s Trainers’ Exam Day?  Join us next year, same place, same time, for yet another year of astonishing horsemanship, kinship, and compassion!  Sign up for our newsletter, Diary of a Horse Whisperer, and have the event details sent directly to your inbox!
