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:

Horse Whispering Knows No Border, No Boundaries…

 
Unlike people, horses speak the same language no matter where they live in the world. No matter what breed they are, no matter the culture they live within, no matter the native tongue of their land … their method of communication remains unaltered.
World-renowned horsewoman, animal communicator, and Usui Holy Fire Reiki Master, Anna Twinney speaks English and German. More often than not, Anna can be found speaking “horse” and teaching others to do the same. Recently, she traveled to Morocco.
“It doesn’t matter where I travel to, the issues people experience with their horses are very similar,” Twinney explains. Morocco was no exception.
Throughout my travels around the globe, I find people either looking for or clinging to a system.  They want a method that works with 100% of horses, 100% of the time.  And when the method doesn’t work, when they have run out of “steps” and come to the end without the result they seek, the blame usually falls squarely on the horse.
“I met some incredible, kind, generous and enthusiastic people. It didn’t matter if they were rich or poor, experienced or new to the world of horses.  As with everywhere I travel, I was asked the same question, “How do I get my horse to…?”, or, “How do I get my horse to stop…?”.  I told them the same thing I tell everyone. In order to fix the problem, you have to know why it is happening (or not happening), and that cannot be solved with a system or a quick fix.  That can only be solved by communication.”
The challenge with a system is that, by its very nature, it is self-limiting and founded in linear, logical, left-brain thinking.  Every system has steps to follow, expected outcomes, and rigid guidelines. In horsemanship, if a system fails, the only options are to try it again, find another system, or blame the horse, which, in extreme cases, can result in abuse of the horse.
Anna’s methodologies, however, are founded in a fluency of the communication system of the horse. 
Twinney sums it up this way, “If you are fluent in the language of Equus a whole world of partnership and training open up for you.  You begin to discover who your horse is and why he does what he does.  If your training methods aren’t working, you can understand why and adapt.  Be creative.  When you work in this way, you are partners with your horse, solving problems, exploring all that is possible, and creating a program unique to each horse.  For me that is far better, and a lot more fun, than simply training a horse and imposing a training method on every horse equally.”
While in Morocco, Anna demonstrated her work to many people from all walks of life and interests in horses.  It was this creative, communicative and cooperative approach that fascinated them the most.  To see Anna quietly speaking and working with the horses, treating each horse as an individual, and solving some of their most difficult issues right in front of their eyes was earthshattering.  Many of them, for the first time, saw a side of the horses they had never seen and learned that harder wasn’t the solution, understanding was.
Come visit the Reach Out to Horses website for more information on Anna’s training methods and her gentle approach.

Optimizing the “Tabula Rasa” Component of Foal Gentling as Described by Sarah Lockwood

r

As I reflect on the week of foal gentling, there are so many humbling and profound lessons to consider, it feels a bit like looking around gratefully at a giant pile of Christmas presents. Every minute spent with the foals, being coached by Anna, supporting fellow students, and living the experience, is a beautiful gift. I know by now that I need downtime to process after each ROTH Clinic, and regain focus on regular life, so I build that in to the travel schedule as a general rule now. 

 As I have saved the foal gentling course until the end of my Train the Trainers course lineup, it provides a chance to reflect on the consistency of the principles, and nuts and bolts of the ROTH methodologies, that are presented in every clinic.  The beauty of ROTH is that it’s not a new recipe or game you learn at each clinic. Rather, the methods encompass all types of practical horsemanship situations and horses, but each one is like a different facet of a prism that shows you a new way to apply everything to a new category of horses.

 In the case of the foals, I was most touched by the truth in Anna’s day-one statement that they are like blank slates, and that everything we do goes with them for life. I watched this truth unfold as I gained the trust and affection of a little filly I named Topaz, who had no reason to trust a human, and every instinctual reason to run the other way. Without really doing anything other than speaking her language and being authentic, I earned this innocent, sentient creature’s trust and was able to teach her nearly all of the basic goals of the course. Even as a horsewoman intimately familiar with the ROTH methods, I was still wholly taken aback by how much can be received by these little ones in such a short time. For me, Topaz provided the most profound examples of latent learning and the value of ending sessions on a good note, because the innocence of the foals and the lack of other “baggage” makes every single message that much clearer. 

 It was empowering and educational to participate in the daily care of the foals, in building and breaking down the pens, and in writing their little “bio’s”.  In fact, putting words to paper for the purpose of spreading the word about adoption day was yet another way I was able to give a voice to the voiceless. I felt like one of the cooperative components working with the Universe to bring about the manifestation of Topaz’ adoptive home. No sooner had I created a written description of Topaz and the home she was looking for, than her family materialized and indeed adopted her and two others, just like I’d hoped. Another lesson in the power of intuitive thought, connection, and words. 

 As someone who is working to develop a specialty in wild and untouched horses, the opportunity to gentle not just foals but wild foals, was a dream come true. I’m so excited about the connections made with the Warm Springs Horse Network through Anna & Katie’s efforts, and the inroads being made with the Warm Springs Reservation Tribes to continue to support the foals born on their lands through gentle and compassionate horsemanship. 

 This clinic provides so many things for horse lovers at many different stages of their training career or just life with horses. Foal gentling is a specialty one could easily fall in love with. I look forward to doing it again as soon as I can!

Dear Herd,
It’s been a glorious past few weeks as we have immersed ourselves into the unique courses we offer through ROTH: Advanced horsemanship gentling wild foals, starting both Mustangs and Andalusians under saddle the gentle way and supporting the horses that need help to understand our world!  With just a few days threaded in between we have been hard at work back at the ranch taking care of the fields, fences, and runs.  Joining us were two International student trainers from Germany and South Africa – how we love to share a well-rounded experience with all those who embrace the chance to get stuck in!

ASK ANNA:

Dear Anna,

How do you handle those who are skeptical about ROTH methodologies and Animal Communication?
It’s funny you should ask! Later this month, I’m hosting a mini webinar series on this very topic. I’d encourage you to join us for the Webinars to get a comprehensive answer to your question. 
For now, I’ll answer briefly. I am happy to have a skeptic in the audience provided he or she has an open mind. I encourage healthy skepticism. In fact, I’d describe myself as a somewhat skeptical person. Once the less than convinced sees the results of ROTH methodologies and Animal Communication, they have the evidence they need to develop a belief. Once a skeptic is convinced, they become passionate advocates! Passionate advocates work to better the lives of the animals they encounter and they share their the knowledge. How can I be upset about that? a498a4b577eadde16d3971be_1200x798[1]This is only a small portion of our newsletter in its new format – Diary of a Horse Whisperer.  For the full newsletter and to sign up to receive our monthly updates please visit the link below:
