In Partnership with Horses as Healers

Equine Facilitated Learning or Equine Facilitated Therapy is a vast ocean of nuances and subtleties. What means something to one person might be misinterpreted or completely misunderstood by another. We can’t really assess a horse to see if they would be as a therapy horse and Anna Twinney (founder of Reach Out to Horses and life coach for over 30 years) explains why in this lecture at the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo. She also goes into how we can support our therapy and coaching horses to make sure that the exchange is not a one-way transaction of them only supporting us.

Our Gratitude Speaks when We Care and We Share the ROTH Way


As a result of the many donations Anna sends we often get lovely expressions of gratitude that come seemingly out of the blue!  It always brings a smile to our faces and warms our hearts to know that people are enjoying learning about the methods and bringing the message to their volunteers and other cooperating organizations.




Thanks, Monica, and This Old Horse!  We slaute the work you do in the world on behalf of the Mustangs!

We also got this message on Facebook from a student of the methods, Cynthia Lawson Greene of Sumner, MI, who was able to apply what she learned in Foals In Training DVD to her Mustang, Scarlet:

“Anna, we have your DVD set on foal training…we have applied it to gentling out mustang, Scarlet. I never thought about running and massaging the ears and surrounding area…Thank you. First time I did Scarlet pulled away some but now I can touch them at will…she is a sweetheart…thank you!”

Cynthia, we are SO pelased to hear that the FIT methods were easily applicable to Scarlet!  Thank YOU for offering a good home to the Mustangs!  We sincerely appreciate those of you who do.

This is just one more testimonial to the fact that the ROTH methods are NOT A COOKIE-CUTTER SYSTEM, but rather a methodology based in the language of Equus, which can be applied to each horse individually based on their learning style, likes/dislikes, personality, character and personal history.  When we use the language of the horse to speak and to request their collaboration, it eliminates the barriers that other “training systems” can create.  We are always thrilled to get messages of gratitude!  Thanks again, Cynthia, for Reaching Out to Share in the Success!

In Partnership with Horses Sneak Peek is Here…


Reach Out to Horses presents “In Partnership with Horses” a DVD series to benefit Equine Facilitated Learning Programs
“We are just beginning to unlock the greater gifts that horses have to give us,” said Vincent Mancarella, Creative Director of Reach Out to Horses, a comprehensive educational program dedicated to helping humans better understand the animals they love. Reach Out to Horses founder and presenter, Anna Twinney focuses her teaching largely on horses but extends her knowledge and wisdom in support of all animals. In keeping with her two-decade quest to “give voice to the voiceless”, ROTH is releasing their 12th educational DVD. In Partnership with Horses is the second release that ROTH has offered to nonprofit organizations at no cost.
In Partnership with Horses explores the world of equine assisted learning, coaching and healing programs designed to benefit those people who need the healing touch of the horses.
Horses have been our companions for millennia; those who work alongside or engage with horses regularly, understand their seemingly magical therapeutic abilities. Countless manes have caught the tears of the bereaved and downtrodden. They’ve encouraged and inspired mankind, healed us, strengthened us and taught us. Both soft and strong, horses have borne our burdens, physically and mentally. Only in recent years has the term Equine Facilitated Learning been coined.
Filmed at The Hidden Acres Therapeutic Riding facility in Naugatuck, Connecticut, In Partnership with Horses delves into the language of the horse, the relationship of energy, intention and telepathy as a means to help program instructors and volunteers understand how to be best support horses working in these highly effective programs.  
“Much like a human therapist can experience burn out … so do horses,” explains Anna. “This DVD is truly a “how-to” guide for everything from placing the horses in the roles for which they are best suited, to understanding the messages they give you in a clear manner.”
In addition, the 2-DVD program gives powerful tips and a look inside the workings of a successful EFL program from the volunteers, to the instructors, to the board of directors, giving a leg up to those programs struggling or just starting off.
“In Partnership with Horses is a culmination of twenty years of working almost exclusively with nonprofit organizations. We’ve seen top-notch programs flounder due to poor business decisions and we’ve seen programs suffer due to a lack of understanding of the horse’s true nature. We wanted to help,” said Anna.
