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!!!

When Veronika and Anna met on Skype for the very first time, Veronika mentioned a very unexpected surprise for Anna.  “It’s a symbol giving us inspiration,” she said. It’s been on my desk since 2008 and now look we stand here together, united.  I don’t go on what I read or the person, I go on what I feel.  I was like a child when I first saw your logo.  It drew me right in and is so very important.  It inspired me to create my logo.

We were super excited to have Dr. Leah ~ Acupuncturist, massage therapist, and Healing with Horses Board Member come over from Trinidad to join us for the whole animal communication experience.
With an open mind and heart, Dr. Leah explored integrating the Young Living essential oils into her treatment.  Her sessions conducted at liberty, giving the horses free choice and a voice, she included them in the selection process.
When Navajo selected 5 oils, the pendulum revealed Relieve It, Hope and Di-gize to be the most serving for the day! With Hope on the heart chakra and Relieve it massaged in – Navajo choreographed his healing.

 

 

While having my hair braided in Tobago, I noticed this kitty rolling around on my pouch containing Essential Oils. I was unsure as to which oil triggered the love-fest, but for more than five minutes it was clear that the kitty was absolutely selecting an oil she needed!  Often when we see big reactions to Essential Oils, we don’t often get it on film.  It was great to see kitty’s reaction and share it with you all as a testament to the animals’ needs and desires to heal or soothe themselves.

Take me to Anna’s Oil Page so I can learn more!

About Healing with Horses

 

Jennifer was the Founding Horse of Being with Horses.  This beautiful, sensitive chestnut mare came to us all the way from Speyside.  She had lived in the rainforest as a leader for a herd of twenty sheep.  In 2007 Veronika walked this lovely mare all the way from Speyside, a 20-hour trek, to bring her to her new home in Buccoo.

Amazing Results with magnify Your Purpose Essential Oil

Shelley Wallen, HTACP

This oil was recommended for me, and shortly after it arrived, I had the perfect opportunity to use it on a horse with touching results.

My client quickly purchased a Thoroughbred whose original owner was not pleased with her racing results.  The owners decided they didn’t have time to place an ad in the paper and was going to have Dakota put down.  My client offered to buy her for a small fee and was hoping to find a new home for her while she trained her to do more than run in a straight line.
dakota-1-crop-003

Though she doesn’t believe Dakota was abused, she definitely was not treated well and had severe anxiety to the point of visible trembling. During my first appointment I found she did not have any trauma to release and realized she just needed to understand what was happening to her. During HTA techniques, I energetically spoke to her, and amazingly, all of her trembling went away and never returned.

At the second appointment, her energy system was strong.  I decided to use that time to give her an update about a potential new owner that was going to be visiting her.  Then I remembered I had just received Magnify Your Purpose.  I offered this oil to Dakota and gently spoke to her during a heart technique.  The moment I spoke of her caretaker, Dakota walked up to her and lovingly nudged her.  Then I told Dakota that her purpose was far greater than the track, and this was the beginning of a new journey for her, and her caretaker would do her best to find the perfect home for her.  She immediately looked at me, then walked up to me placing her face less than an inch from my face.  I continued to honor and encourage her and ended with a kiss on her nose.

It was an incredible moment when she realized she had far greater purpose in her life.

After looking at 42 horses over 8 months, Dakota was chosen to be a part of a new family.  Her new owner reported Dakota has been calm and relaxed since being picked up and really enjoyed meeting her new stall mates. Amazing!
