The 2017 HHC Journeys to the Crystal Show in Denver, CO!

Holistic Health Support and Healing are a signature part of the HHC, and ROTH was fortunate this year that one of the largest crystal shows in the US coincided with the course.  Some of our students chose to do their presentation on several crystals that spoke to them on a spiritual level.  Below is a list of the crystals and some of the more prominent aspects and healing properties associated with each.

Which crystals speak to you spiritually?  Have you used crystals before on either horses or yourself?  If so, which ones and what was your experience?  Feel free to share your comments on our Facebook page that accompanies this post!

“Life-changing” doesn’t even quite cut it…. Insights of a ROTH student post a trans-formative HHC experience.

Emily P. is one of our ROTH students who attended the HHC in 2016 and she wrote about her experience here with Anna and the other ROTH students who took part in the Holistic Horse Certification Course:

“It’s written in gratitude and is just a brief reflection on the two-week course and its continuing ripple effects on my life and path.”

                                                                              – – –

It’s the kind of magic you don’t realize has fallen around you until you pull out of it. When you pull out of it, your body feels strange and alone and kind of tingly because without realizing it, you had molded to a space, and all the human people, and non-human people, shared energies, excitements, dreams, and the fears that composed it.

“Life-changing” doesn’t even quite cut it. The horses and humans that I got to learn from over the past weeks held space for me to step into myself in a way I hadn’t before; they made it safe to do so. They illuminated a path that I had been too afraid, or confused, or perhaps just not ready to see clearly before now. At first, our group felt to me like a bunch of overeager, slightly clumsy dancers attempting to learn rhythm (which we were literally trying to do as this is not just a metaphor – Elaine’s specialty is getting stiff and nervous hips to loosen up). But we managed to choreograph the beginning of something – certainly not a masterpiece yet – but we felt it, those opening beats.

For me, it always comes back to connection – the thick, full, rich, recognition between two beings; the I am here, I am with you, I hear you, I love you.  It is absolute presence, and the courage to fully give yourself to someone else, even for a moment.

Emily P 2

This is what horses give me, and this is what I feel is missing from much of human society. We are terrified to recognize each other, to be present with each other, to let ourselves be seen and not shy away from who we are. Without that, things quickly become – to use one of Anna’s phrases – rather pear shaped. The general feeling I get living in the United States right now is that as a society we are tripping over ourselves trying to achieve more and be better and control everything, terrified to stop and look at ourselves in the face, terrified to be present, terrified to wait for anyone else but ourselves. We carve out and deepen a significant void in the world when we forget how to connect.

I was doing a lot of this in the month leading up to this course – a lot of over-planning my life, trying to set up five career paths in my head because the uncertainty ahead of me is so terrifying, a lot of zooming around avoiding fear and loneliness and refusing to trust the universe in the face of so much unknown.

The horses made this very clear to me as soon as I got to the horse. I was nervous the first few days, anxious to prove myself. There are a few moments and horses that stood out in particular along the way. Lola showed me how powerful I could be when I stepped out of my anxiousness and into the immediate experience of being with her. She was difficult to catch, so I had to slow my pace, wait for her to reach out to me. I remember my breath slowing down, and I remember staying with her in the round pen, in the quiet elasticity we’d developed before I’d haltered her, and forgetting about everyone watching me for the first time. Stepper was an incredibly kind teacher as well; I was viscerally moved by his triggers (flinching every time someone raised an arm to the side of him, particularly on the left) and so touched by the softness in his eyes despite the abuse he so clearly remembered.

On the last day, before our exams, I was walking around Zuma’s, knowing I really needed to show up – for myself, for my teachers and peers, but especially for the horses. I was listening to music in my headphones, letting out the self-doubt I’d been fighting against and replacing it with fresh air. My walk changed, and I began to laugh at myself for all the fear and self-scrutiny, because I had accessed something so much deeper, a fierce determination that will carry me through life and a gratitude for this sudden feeling of connection. My mind moved to Captain, and I was full of excitement to spend an hour with him, because I really believed again that I had something to offer, that I had love, fun, leadership and energy to share with him. And I went into his pasture full of this excitement just to be with him, to discover him, and we both showed up. And he gave me himself, he played, we heard each other, and we choreographed a space together in which I forgot about everything else.

And nothing replaces that feeling. Nothing in the world.

Horses are incredibly rhythmic beings. Their cerebellums, which control movement, are much larger than humans’, and their ability to move in harmony with the other beings around them is unparalleled. If there is one reason I have kept returning to horses over and over, it is this; whenever I feel off-kilter in my life, or out of balance with myself, horses bring me back into rhythm – literally, as I find myself moving from a more centered place, and also emotionally and spiritually. They also challenge me to adapt to the rhythms and perceptions of the other beings around me, not just my own. Perhaps this is why I have never felt anything quite as expansive as working with horses, and my desire to learn from them will never be satiated.

Thank you, Anna and Elaine, for widening my access to and understanding of the world of Equus a thousand fold.

We certainly look forward to seeing Miss Emily again on our courses as she enjoys the present moment in time and engages all the other souls around the way in which only she can, the humans and the non-humans 😉   We love you, Emily!

 

The Proof is in the Pudding…and in the Testimonials. Consensus: Anna Twinney – Miracle Worker!

 

We start with two testimonials from our most recent Colorado Clinic at Mounting Miracles Ranch in Lafayette, CO.

From Jan D. at Mounting Miracles:

I attended Anna’s Confident Horse, Confident Rider 2-day Clinic with my 6-year-old Mustang who I adopted from an Untouched Horse Course with Anna 5 years ago.  I’ve attended a lot of Anna’s courses and clinics and am no stranger to her techniques.  And yet, because of the human and horse dynamic, every clinic is different and special.  I was struck anew by two things in this clinic:

First, Anna’s ability to assess both horse and human is remarkable.  She can quickly and accurately identify the message a horse’s behavior might be sending and work with the human on understanding and developing a plan to address the issue effectively.  Just as clearly, and kindly, she is able to spot the slightest nuance in the handler’s movements or hear it in their self assessment and coach them to self confidence and success.

Secondly, Anna has always said that her techniques are not a “system.”  Witnessing her work with people entirely new to her philosophy reminded me of the power of that fact.  Some of the work we did was applied to all horses, as a way to assess the horse’s status and to develop trust and a few basic skills.  From there, everything was driven by the horse’s need.  In other words, each horse was viewed as an individual and no set “solution” was applied.  One horse may be a little head shy and not want his ears touched.  One approach is utilized to help him learn the value of letting the handler touch his ears.  Another horse may be head shy and terrified of having her ears touched because she associates it with past trauma and rough handling.  This horse will require a very different approach.  Anna’s gift is in helping the handler develop a solution that works for that horse, through education and creative problem solving.  The student is not just handed one solution, but taught to develop new solutions, based on knowledge and understanding.

I could go on and on about the fun atmosphere, the group bonding, and the supportive atmosphere.  Both Arrow and I had a great time…

Thanks, Anna!

 

Lloyd M. of Brighton, CO shares:

In 2011, my wife Jan and I began the journey that changed our lives. We had been volunteering at a horse rescue where we observed Anna moving a horse at liberty in a round pen using only her eyes. We were hooked. We proudly completed the ROTH Comprehensive Holistic Horsemanship Modular Certification Course (HHC) in 2011.  In February of 2012, we took the ROTH Foal Gentling Course with Anna in Tucson, AZ. These were PREMARIN foals Anna had rescued and the goal was to gentle them to become adopted. Anna assigned me the eight-month-old untouched buckskin; he was tall, always made his way to the front of the herd, and held his head high. This foal was an amazing old soul who easily picked up everything we worked on. I went home to Colorado after spending the week with him to contemplate what adopting him would entail. Head and heart agreed, he came to me in June and changed my life forever. He was awarded the name “Champ” because that is how he does everything! When he turned fours years old we took ROTH’s Colt Starting 101 together to start him under saddle.  We decided to go back to our horse roots by attending ROTH’s Confident Horse, Confident Rider Clinic with Anna in June 2017. Champ has only known ROTH techniques, so with Anna’s keen eyes she was able to critique our relationship to get closer to our potential. I have always preferred groundwork to riding but Anna was able to get me the “a-ha” moment of how fun riding can be!

Because of Anna’s marvelous ability to connect to each person and horse, everyday is a good day starting out with haying our herd.

Anna then went from Colorado straight to Kalispell, Montana (affectionately termed “Kila” by residents) where she did An Evening of Animal Communication and hosted her 3 Days of Intuitive Riding Clinic.

Images of Anna’s very cozy group of Animal Communication Attendees in Montana:Evening of AC MT

She also did a breakthrough session of Animal Communication for a long-time friend and client of Reach Out to Horses, Nancy H., and her horse, Shanti.  Here’s the scoop:

I was dealing with a scary horse crises that was 6 weeks on and getting worse.  Anna did a communication session with Shanti that was detailed, spot on – captured Shanti’s heart, communication style, injuries, site of the accident, what happened, how it happened, the horse who caused it – and the fact it was just ‘an accident’… Every detail ‘spot on’ as I was there – although just inside getting more hay.

Nancy’s Summary of the incident and Shanti’s injury:

My horse had a puncture wound injury 5 weeks before the clinic.  We had seen bizarre changes daily with edemas, air pillows under the skin-neck to lumbar, withers to belly along with a very lame leg that was swollen, not swollen, usable, and then not usableŠ Just before the clinic was to start, Shanti had a bloody nose 2 nights in a row.  Shanti was too lame to trailer but had been ultra sounded, radio graphed, monitored by the vet weeks before.  I felt completely unsupported by the vet and results from onsite radio graphs, and was feeling frantic for the unexplained high pain level and continued changes.  I begged Anna for a communication session even though I knew it was an unethical request.  Anna was able to fit us in and 6 others listened in, one of whom was a care giver to Shanti for 2 years before she came to be with me.

The session was helpful and I felt much relief at the end.  Shanti shared how and where the accident happened – which was spot on as to how I thought it must have unfolded but was doubting that scenario due to the major complications that kept springing up.   Shanti shared that the puncture area was clean inside, that there was no lung infection or lung pain.  That was excellent to know because due to the air under the skin this could have been caused by a broken rib, punctured lung, or massive infection.  Anna parlayed information that was possible, and that needed to be checked out.  Anna also set up a social media post where 100 people sent energy healing to Shanti.  I chose to not trailer on a Sunday due to limited staff & testing that could be done.  I set up a hauler on Monday.  The trailer looked just as Anna said it would be shaped.  This was the Montana Equine Emergency Ambulance.  Shanti would not go in for any of us.  Clearly her movement was better than it had been since the accident, ­ adrenaline or otherwise, she ultimately made a choice to heal at home.  She is moving around a bit more, standing taller, drinking more water and eating well.  I am offering multiple modalities and trying to get a BEMER vet package to help the nerve damage heal.  I do hope she gets her lovely trot back.

After feeling so frantic with the changes I was seeing in my horse even after doing all I could, I felt such relief with the information and gained confidence to move forward into the long rehab ahead of us. With all the skills, knowledge, and training I’ve gained, this accident was clearly outside of my confidence level. Anna sharing her gift was gigantic, valuable, and priceless. Our gratitude forever.

Nancy shared some images of her treasured Shanti:

 

Nancy H. also participated in the Intuitive Riding Clinic and this is what she shared:

Another amazing total of 4 days spent with Anna Twinney.  The time spent throughout this clinic was valuable beyond words.  Educational, inspiring, soul connections, life lessons – life patterns brought to awareness and let go… Way more than riding…Everyone expressed major life changes this year, and we are ready for next year! I simply can’t say enough good things regarding this experience!  I was able to take Starry on his own and he was perfect, calm, wise, and honored for who he is.  He found a new best friend we’ll go riding with as well… Such tremendous growth and connection in our relationship.

The life lessons over the weekend created awareness and were life-changing.Š The obstacle course at liberty with 2 horses, and a team driving horses to move was a challenge in projecting energy and intent.  Creating flowing energy and back-up energy and keeping that same energy in place as we moved together in a team – eyes on eyes first horse, then second horse, then shoulders square – ask for forward motion.   Knowing where to be and what to do to back someone up was really tough for me.  Took a long time to get it and this was humbling to get out of my head and finally move intuitively.  I actually didn’t ride my horse this weekend.  The TLC session went perfect with Starry – he was a completely different horse this year – due to the DePaolo Excel product I have him on.  I have no reservations riding him, he and I will be just fine. The IRE (Intuitive Riding Experience) just gets richer each year.  Collectively all the information sinks in, connects, makes sense and becomes a way of being. This year it all came together.

 

Who wouldn’t love to work in the great outdoors of picturesque, Kalispell, MT?

And shared by Brenda W. of Kalispell, MT

I love to feel passionate, inspired about my work on behalf of horses and humans, about being alive, especially connecting with and riding horses. But the truth is, after the loss of a life of almost daily riding, raising horses and mules, riding & packing in Glacier Park, and later the loss of my beautiful mare, I disconnected that confident, horse-woman part of myself. Add to the mix busyness, business building, and survival, I didn’t know how to get that part of me back. My current riding horse, Jett, and I, have had a frustrating dance over the past 12 years.  It was a dance of “do we trust each other?”  And each of us getting frustrated.  Last weekend I participated in the Intuitive Riding Clinic with Anna and my passion that I let stand aside was re-ignited! Anna helped me identify what was truly standing in my way of having the connection and relationship that I crave with my horse! It was glorious to re-awaken that confident part of myself – get back to riding and connecting with my horse.  This clinic was so much more than a clinic – it was a retreat that customized to our individual needs in horsemanship and in life lessons, including my greatest desire to ride Jett bareback. Over the past three years Anna has asked me why I am holding back.  This year Anna and Jett opened the gate wide and I stepped through.

In deep gratitude,

Brenda W.

Investigation Confirms BLM Sale of 1,794 Wild Horses to Slaughter

The Cloud Foundation presses BLM to focus on keeping horses on the range

Washington, DC – October 25, 2015 – After 3 years of waiting for the Office of the Inspector General to complete an investigation of Colorado rancher and livestock hauler, Tom Davis, their report has finally been completed and confirms what The Cloud Foundation (TCF) has been saying publicly since October of 2012. The report states, “During our investigation, Davis admitted that most of the horses he purchased from BLM went to slaughter.” The report also states that between 2008 and 2012 BLM spent more than $140,000 in taxpayer dollars transporting wild horses to Davis who admits to paying only $10.00 for each horse.

BLM’s performance in this deadly incident is completely unacceptable. Who is being held accountable here?” asks Paula Todd King, TCF Director of Communications. “It appears everyone gets off—BLM, Davis, the Vet, the Brand Inspector and everyone involved.”

The Report states: “We referred this investigation to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Colorado, who declined both civil and criminal prosecution. The State of Colorado Conejos County District Attorney’s Office also declined to file charges against Davis. We referred the public health issue concerning a USDA-certified veterinarian signing IHCs without inspecting the horses (false statements) to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Mexico. The District of New Mexico formally declined prosecution.”

 

The OIG report also indicates that BLM law enforcement officers who looked into the background of Tom Davis “found no evidence of Davis selling the horses to slaughter.”

 

“This is surprising as Davis is well known in Southern Colorado and it is common knowledge that he buys horses for the purpose of selling them for slaughter,” states Ginger Kathrens, TCF Executive Director and producer of the Cloud films for PBS.  “The law enforcement folks dropped the ball leaving wild horses and the American public to pay the ultimate price.” 

 

“What is also shocking is Colorado’s failure to follow through with the prosecution of Tom Davis,” addedAnn Evans, a founding Board Member of TCF, “and that New Mexico too has turned a blind eye to the wrong-doing of the veterinarian who falsified documents, an action clearly out of compliance with his New Mexico State Veterinary License.”

 

BLM believes they have eliminated the possibility of this crime being repeated by limiting the number of wild horses that can be purchased at any one time. But what does it say about how we go forward if no one is held responsible for the suffering that occurred to animals that only wanted to live their lives in freedom with their families?” continues Kathrens.  “The best way to avoid a repeat of this tragedy is to keep wild horses on the range where they want to be, and where they are clearly the safest.”

 

The Colorado non-profit believes that field darting with the safe, reversible fertility control drug PZP will keep mustang populations at zero population growth and eliminate the need for removals.TCF has offered to work with the BLM to implement those fertility control plans to preserve genetically viable herds in the wild and reduce the cost of managing wild horses in less than humane holding facilities.

“Misstatements and untruths must stop,” adds King, “including covering up the inhumane treatment of wild horses by helicopter contractors during roundups, failure to provide adequate shelter to thousands of wild horses already in captivity, sterilizing vibrant, healthy herds of wild horses on the range, and skewing environmental analyses that blame wild horses for range damage caused by livestock grazing and energy development.

It is past time for BLM to turn the ship around and fulfill their responsibility to the American public to manage healthy herds of wild horses on public lands in an environmentally responsible and sustainable way,” Kathrens concludes.

BLM Plans Annihilation of Colorado’s Historic West Douglas Wild Horse Herd

Remnants of Ute Indian ponies have 300 year history in the area

“The owners of these cattle pay the government $1.69 per cow/calf pair per month. At the most, the BLM receives $15,656,” Moore states. “The Federal Livestock Grazing Program costs American taxpayers $123 million yearly.” Removing the cattle would actually save taxpayers money. The plannedhelicopter removal of wild horses will cost nearly 10 times more than the revenues received from livestock grazers. “The continual damage to the land from cattle and sheep grazing and the yearly drain on taxpayers who foot the bill for welfare ranching has to stop,” Moore concludes.

BLM’s Jan. 2015 Environmental Assessment, states “that all wild horses within or adjacent to the WDHA meet the statutory definition of excess animals, and therefore, consistent with the authority provided in 16 USC § 1333 (b) (2), the BLM shall immediately remove excess animals from the range.” This would reduce wild horse herds in Colorado to four, and the number of horses to 1150, compared to the many thousands of mustangs that once roamed the state.

“We have battled the destruction of this historic herd in the courts for decades,” stated Ginger Kathrens, Volunteer Executive Director of TCF, a Colorado based non-profit which advocates for the protection and preservation of wild horses on public lands.  “As recently as 2009 the courts ruled against the BLM when District Court Judge Collyer enjoined the BLM from removing any wild horses from the herd,” she states. “BLM’s historic scapegoating of wild horses is a smoke screen,” continued Kathrens.  “Western rangeland damage is caused by millions of head of privately-owned livestock, not our publically owned and theoretically protected wild horses.”

“Grazing of livestock on public lands is considered a privilege, not a right, and permits can be reduced or revoked per BLM Regulations (43 CFR § 4710.5).” mentions Paula Todd King, Communications Director for TCF. “Until the BLM finds the courage to address the real culprit – an overpopulation of welfare livestock – our historic wild horse herds will continue to be managed to extinction.”

Horses seek forever homes in Peyton, CO.

horses1_046-252x186

This is very hard for me. Most of these horses were either born here or I’ve had them for many years. I have been trying for several years to find good homes for them through friends and word of mouth, but I am running out of time. They are in good condition but I know I will not have the resources to get them all through the winter with hay prices as they are now. These horses have always been treated with kindness and compassion and I pray that I can find them all a safe place to be.

I have had a very hard time letting the horses go to be honest. I am very fearful about where they will end up because I love them like family. I have them listed on my website now with adoption prices which will include vaccinations, worming, farrier, health certificate and dental if needed. My main concern is to find them good homes where they will be loved and respected. I am asking for an application and adoption agreement from anyone interested in one of the horses. There are click throughs on the main page of the website to FaceBook and Flickr pages where they will find tons of photos that show not only the horses but how they have been raised as well. this is the link to the website www.jor-ianarabians.com

Thank you again,
Tiffany
