Hi, my name is Mijita! I was recently taken off the range land in Warm Springs, Oregon, where I roamed freely with my family group. I am the color of honey, which is actually what my name means, as well as “my little daughter.” I excel with a gentle approach and like to know that I am being understood. I am smart and learn pretty quickly, as I showed during the foal gentling clinic. I excelled at adapting to different approaches, touch, grooming, haltering, and the first steps for leading. I am currently looking for my forever home and I can’t wait to see what my future holds.
For more information on where I can be found please visit Anna’s Website at:
Reach Out to Horses. You can also call ROTH at 303-642-7341, and speak to the bipeds who are in charge of helping find me a home. Thanks for considering making me a part of your homes, herds, and hearts! I have been started so well that I am ready to go forward from here with my new forever family. My gratitude to you for your consideration!
Anna Twinney of Reach Out to Horses has teamed up with Frank Weller of Equine Angels, Connecticut, Karen Pomroy of Equine Voices, Arizona and Ray of Light Farms, Connecticut to save 15 foals from the Canadian slaughter houses. A beautiful evening arranged at Strings Restaurant, courtesy of Tammy Cunningham and her husband was arranged with proceeds donated to the foals. Guests of honor: Susan Williams (photographer & artist), Joyce Leake (animal communicator), Tracy Vroom (cranial sacral healer), Carol Komitor (Healing Touch for animals) and Melisa Pearce (Touched by a horse – absent) all joined us to celebrate the lives of these foals. Now you too can help – donate by visiting http://www.reachouttohorses.com
THE COMPLETE FOAL HANDLING COURSE WITH ANNA
November 15th – 20th, 2010
Ray of Light Farm, East Haddam, CT
(Applies towards ROTH Holistic Horsemanship Course Graduates
becoming ROTH Trainers Continuing Education)
Gentling foals can be some of the most important and rewarding work you will ever do. Working with PMU foals, knowing that you have helped save them from Canada’s feedlot and given them a new chance for a full and happy life, is more rewarding than you can even imagine.
Last year Frank Weller and the Equine Angels saved 7 foals from certain death, 5 of which were filmed during a week long ROTH training program. The 4-part DVD set, Foals in Training, scheduled to be launched in only a few short months, depicts the lives of the foals from their arrival in trailers through to their first touch, their first halter, their first step. This unique, comprehensive tool gives you the opportunity to travel down the road as we gentle these beautiful souls.
We want our foals to feel safe, and their experiences with humans to be positive, memorable ones. These first important lessons stay with them for the rest of their lives and so the training must be done right. Acknowleding the “whisper” is crucial, recognizing the “try” is an art.
And now it’s your turn to join Anna for a week of fun, friends and foals.
You will have the chance to understand, first-hand, the power of compassionate leadership and positive reinforcement while creating the clarity in boundaries and balance.
Learn the same uniquely designed and tested program
Anna herself uses to start foals for basic handling!
Spend 6 fun-filled, info-packed days learning the Reach Out to Horses methods and work with a new group of PMU foals, starting these young lives on the path towards a gentle, trust-based partnership with humans.
Under Anna’s tutelage you will work directly with the foals, and learn how to teach them:
- Halter training – acceptance of halter, leading
- Tying (if appropriate)
- Picking up feet
- Navigating an obstacle course
- Desensitization techniques to plastic bags and other objects
- and more…
By introducing these elements of Basic Handling to your foal at the age of weaning, you will be preparing them for the best start possible. Your foal has a memory for life, let these first memories be good ones.
And as a bonus you will join Anna at Ray of Light Farm in picturesque East Haddam, CT – the same location at which Anna filmed the Foals in Training DVD Set. This is an ideal facility to learn these life-changing techniques.
Space is extremely limited, only 2 spots left!
Participation is on a first come first serve basis so sign up today!
Total Cost: Only $1200.00 for the entire 6 days of training.

If you haven’t heard, Anna traveled to Ray of Light Farm in East Haddam, CT to film, in partnership with Equine Angels Rescue Sanctuary, the new Reach Out to Horses Foal Gentling DVD series, scheduled to come out in mid 2010. She worked with some beautiful foals rescued from the Premarin manufacturing farms in Canada. They were some of the most precious, special and smart little guys and girls she’s ever worked with. One was even fortunate enough to be adopted at the end of the filming week!
And the DVD series is going to be just as special as the foals. This isn’t going to be a just another “horse video”. We have brought together an INCREDIBLE group of professionals to make the best, state of the art, documentary quality, instructional video tool you will ever see.
When you see what this collaboration has created, you will be as blown away as we are. This is a must have tool for anyone working with, training and gentling foals.
Thanks to Ray, Bonnie, Mum, and then entire crew for an amazing experience. You are all the BEST!
