’Tis the time of year to celebrate and reflect the recent months watching our global ROTH HHC participants graduate the  horse whispering certification program with each and everyone wearing their “I survived ROTH” t-shirts with such pride.  We celebrated the graduation of four tremendously dedicated and talented ROTH trainers who came to CO from NM, CA, Denmark and Germany to return to their respective homes to represent us triumphantly!  Each and every journey unique as they discovered their gifts and talents in support of horses globally.  Today we offer you the same chance to witness the appreciation, joy and wonders we share.  These are magical moments captured as we attract people who seek their true life’s purpose and discover them selves, their voice and their dreams in the process.  

I want to know more about this certification!

ANNA IN THE NEWS:

Truly honored and humbled to see myself (ROTH) on the news in Morocco! Strange and exciting to see another language in another alphabet scroll under clips featuring my visit and courses there. 

Did you miss our Morocco visit?

 

In Partnership:

A year ago, we were delighted to be a part of the launch of Horse Lifestyle TV, (think Netflix for horse people). This beautiful video is in celebration of the one year anniversary of this fantastic addition to the lives of horse lovers everywhere. We are happy to be a part of this service!

Ooh! Tell me more!

ASK ANNA:

Video answers to ongoing questions

1. We are often presented with questions about horses who have suffered traumatic beginnings or events and how it relates into their behavior, meet Sparrow.
2. We reintroduce the idea of ponying to help youngsters ease more comfortably into their new roles.
3.  Finally, a fantastic example of the trainer circuit buzz word “desensitize” (we prefer positive terms like adapt and adjust). While introducing objects is fairly straightforward, it’s tougher to arrange for horses to any hear noisy environments they might encounter. We can’t recommend the Spook Busting CD series enough and they make great Christmas gifts!

I am overdue from my self imposed timeline to tell you about the 2nd of my three heroes by the new year, that would be Anna Twinney of Reach Out to Horses/ Anna Twinney Holistic HorsemanshipAnimal Communication with Anna Twinney.
In 2013, I adopted 3 “Mustangs” – TNT, Muppet, and Jethro – from a rescue in No CA, Hooves and Angels – I had never owned a horse before, let alone 3 that were not really gentled. The challenge of these 3 horses mirrored the challenges of my life at the time and it was overwhelming. I went to Reach Out to Horses website and found a buried link to buy 12 remote training sessions w Anna. I think she was taken by surprise and I believe was saying to herself “WTF did this woman get herself into?”
However, she took charge and took me on to train…I watched all of her training DVDs and for the next 6 months I would video tape my assignments w each horse, edit them, and then 1-2 times a week, Anna would spend 1-2 hours going over every single move, look, and nuance of energy of me with each of my three horses, critiquing and training me – major success! Over the next 2 years I went to several of her workshops and also completed all 3 of her Holistic Horsemanship Certification courses. The most beloved clinic w Anna was the clinic in which we gentled orphaned untouched foals –I adopted my fabulous 3 mo old colt, DJ from this clinic.
I can honestly say that Anna turned me into someone who can develop a deep relationship with horses and am comfortable handling and working with any and all of them.
Anna then went on to speak to all of my animals through Animal Communication over several months.
And because of all the things I was personally going through at the time, she brought me out of the murky mud I was stuck in. ~ Val, Arizona

STUDENT SUCCESS
Student? Family? Who can tell the difference?
We are very proud of our newest Certified ROTH Instructor, Elaine Ackerly!  It has been a road full of trials and tribulations, heartache and pain, joy and exuberation.  We have watched her grow into a confident and competent instructor of the language of Equus and the ROTH methodologies.  Her desire to make the world a better place for all horses is only surpassed by her giant heart and the love she has for our equine companions. We would welcome her into the ROTH family but she’s been an invaluable member for many years already.  We wish her the very best as she spreads her wings and fulfills her destiny.  

Elaine writes: Although you have taught me a great many things outside of horsemanship, and one of those that is most apparent is my improved writing skills; I can’t seem to write anything at this time in gratitude.
Where would one begin?

THROUGH THE EYES OF ONE VIEWER: THE INTUITIVE RIDING EXPERIENCE
for-blog

If you asked me what I believed a good horseman to be when I was ten, I would have said someone who could ride their horse in a halter.  If you’d asked me when I was sixteen, I would have said someone who could ride a high-performance horse in a halter, mostly because I’d never seen that.  If you asked when I was twenty, I would have said someone who is gentle and who can get the most out their horse without resulting to physical abuse.  If you’d asked me when I was thirty, I would have said first of all I’m twenty-eight, and …

Ponying as a Valuable Lesson During Colt Starting and Beyond!

 

 

Join this year’s Colt Starting Crew at Friends Of Horses as they use the art of ponying to offer stability to horses who are new to being under saddle.

For more information on ROTH clinics and how you can reach out to learn how to gently educate horses, please visit our website at:

Reaching Out the Gentle Way

 

If You Could Start Your Colt This Way in 7 Days, Imagine Where You’d Be in 7 Weeks or Months…

Join the Colt Starting group at Friends of Horses as they start and spook bust their horses.  Many of the horses you see here are Mustangs, and there are a few Friesians, as well.  Just imagine though, if you could make this kind of solid progress as you build trust over the first 7 days of training, there is no limit to what you could do and where you could go.  For more information on Anna Twinney, her methods, and how you can Reach Out to Horses to better the lives of all involved, please visit us on our webpage at:

Colt Starting Success for Mustang, Whisper, and Her Dedicated Human!

 

A dream come true; an educational storm of horsemanship, Anna Twinney’s ROTH clinics are always a life-changing experience. No matter the topic I come away a different person. Not only do I gain horsemanship knowledge, but as a youth learning to live and grow in our dynamic, sometimes confusing world, I gain valuable life skills. Never did I imagine how many lessons come through, not only from horses, but all animals.  All my experiences have been nothing less than magical. 

This year I was able to attend the Colt Starting clinic with my three-year-old mustang, Whisper. Whisper was my first horse to gentle using Reach Out to Horses methods. I remember saying on the day I picked her up that “next year I can bring her to colt starting!” To be able to bring her and start her under Anna’s watchful eye was a vision made real. The whole colt starting experience was incredible.  It included driving the long twenty hours down to Colorado with four horses, staying seven days during the clinic, and riding Whisper for the very first time! Bringing Whisper from an untouched mustang to getting on her back for the first couple times was an extraordinary experience.  I learned a lot, trying to absorb as much as I could! I had a wonderful time meeting new people and horses, making friends all around the world. Near the end of the clinic I was included with the trainer-course students while they received a lecture about the course.  Reading and signing the course papers was empowering because it had been my dream since the second time I ever attended one of Anna’s clinics. Thank you, Anna, and Reach Out to Horses, for all of your hard work and dedication to all of us, animal and human. It feels like you have shown me how to live, and have helped me reach my greatest ambitions. What you have taught me is priceless and I can’t thank you enough for everything.

No matter what topic we are on I am always learning a miraculous amount. I have thoroughly loved every second of it. Since the first one-day-clinic I attended it’s been a dream, and to experience it coming true is life-changing and magical. It’s a journey and I am excited to see what else it holds.
