Anna utilizes the round pen to demonstrate what it looks like to hold a conversation with two different horses in their own language, the Language of Equus. Listen closely and discover just how much can be learned about a horse in a short period of time and what kind of a conversation we can have when we are tuned in, aware, and focusing the mind on the silent and often invisible conversation at hand.

Reach Out to Horses by Anna Twinney
Horses have walked this Earth for more than 54 million years. While some do not consider them among the brightest of the animal kingdom, most are unaware that through their lengthy tenure on this planet they have created an effective non-verbal language that some have coined “the language of Equus.” This is a language that goes well beyond the unspoken. Through careful observation, humans have been able to interpret and adopt this method of communication.
Originating from the horses’ body language, behavior, interaction and herd hierarchy, humans can now speak with them through our own body language, gestures and even our intentions. This language, like any, requires patience and practice. It can be taught to anyone but fluency only comes from time spent observing and communicating with the native speakers.
Not only can horses read the body language of every member of their species they can read humans just as easily. They can, almost immediately, see your agenda and how you are feeling. They will highlight your strengths and weaknesses. In effect, they know who you are and what that means to them in a very short period of time. You can lie to yourself but you can’t lie to a horse. Therefore, it’s important that you begin every interaction with a clear mind, leaving “all your baggage” at the gate.
One place to start the conversation with your horse is the round pen. Using the round pen as your classroom can be very helpful in creating a trust-based relationship. This type of conversation is the foundation to all interaction, every ground session, ridden work and ultimately your success. A 50-foot round pen is suggested as it allows free motion for horses of most sizes. It’s also important to make sure you have appropriate footing, which is essential to maintaining health and fitness.
This is an example of a typical session in the round pen. It’s important to note that this is an overview and is not intended to be a formula or a “quick fix” to solve behavioral issues and requires dedication and commitment to learn and apply. Remember that communication takes place whenever you are together. Each gesture and motion you make says something to your 4-legged partner.
Familiarization: Horses need the chance to explore the round pen at liberty. They naturally check out their perimeters, take time to settle and to explore the vicinity through their senses. Each horse is an individual and as such will react in different ways to different circumstances. This 15-20 minute period is an ideal time to observe their character and learn to read thier personality.
Orientation: This is the official introduction and there are many important steps in this portion which include:
The introduction to the four directions (N, E, S, W) of the round pen
Introduction of body language
The opportunity for handler to read horse and horse to read handler
The time for the adrenaline of horse and handler to subside
Creation of a comfort zone in the center of the round pen
Creation of a safe distance between horse and handler
Manipulation of speed and direction by the handler to gain leadership
Communication: In a natural herd environment, hierarchy is determined through many factors, one being the manipulation of speed and direction. As mentioned in the orientation process, the handler adopts this practice in the round pen environment. The connection between horse and handler takes place before or during the orientation, with a herd of 2 being formed. Once the herd has been formed and the orientation has been completed, the handler asks the horse to leave by driving them away using body language. This is the time to make character assessments, to complete a health check, and to begin forming the partnership with the horse.
A higher-ranking horse will use his body language to communicate or punish another by sending them out of the herd. This gives a strong message as banishment is a grave risk to their survival. Through the position that the handler takes of driving the horse forward, he will retreat. This is a form of advance and retreat, also known as pressure release, and has been used by horsemen for centuries. The handler then adopts equine body language by squaring his shoulders, placing his eyes on the horse’s eyes, and advancing forward in an assertive manner. The combination of proximity, speed, movements, and eye contact can mean a number of different things.
As prey animals, horses naturally run for ¼ to 3/8ths of a mile before they stop to assess what made them flee. This distance is roughly translated to 7-8 revolutions in the round pen. The fleeing that is induced should not be through fear, but rather a request for forward motion. The handler takes possession of any area the horse stands in at any given moment, hence gaining leadership. A speed slightly beyond their natural gait is best and will often be in the form of a canter.
When it feels like the right time to change direction, the horse is asked to change direction towards the round pen wall through the handler’s body positioning. The same process of asking the horse to leave is repeated in this direction. Unlike humans, horses only transfer about 20-50% of all information from the left to the right side of the brain and, as such, they consider this to be new ground that they are exploring.
Once the horse has explored both directions he is then asked to return to familiar ground, pressure is reduced but an active involvement is maintained. An assertive walk forward is continued, while allowing the horse to reduce his speed and maintain focus and attention. The handler’s body language becomes a little softer as his intention changes. This procedure is also helpful because the horse will often reveal his history during this time.
The horse will begin to communicate his desire to return to the herd of two. He will relay very clears signs, such as reducing the size of his circle, relaxing his jaw and neck, and many other gestures that require some study for the handler to recognize. These are all desired responses that need acknowledgement through a release of pressure resembling a drop of the eyes, a relaxing of shoulders, slowing of the walk, or a hesitating in the line throwing. This is what makes it a conversation, rather than a demand or simply talking at the horse. Each try by the horse should be acknowledged in this manner. Overall, the handler is looking for a complete feeling of unity and a commitment from the horse prior to inviting them back to the herd. This will come with experience and the whole of the “Reach Out” process generally should take no longer than 15-20 minutes.
Reach Out to Horses: A suitable moment is identified to invite the horse to become part of the team again. The invitation takes the form of a sweeping motion in front of the horse and is similar to the natural gesture of displaying one’s flank, while eating. The passive nature of the maneuver asks the horse to slow down and step closer. He will choose to stay close to the wall, come part of the way or all the way to the handler. If the communication is done correctly but the horse does not return to the handler this may possibly point to a problem, issue, or habit the horse developed before the session. Ultimately, the greatest compliment is that the horse comes up to the handler and reaches out towards him with his nose.
Close Connection: An invitation to the horse is given to come into the heart space where he receives lots of reward and reassurance – creating a close connection. A rub on the forehead will reinforce his positive behavior. The ultimate reward for a horse is the release of pressure, which translates to walking away. Horses naturally move in arcs and angles so, when the time is right, the handler walks away in a clockwise direction to perform a figure 8. The qualities of a leader are displayed to bring the horse back to the center of the round pen, which becomes a familiar comfort zone.
Reaching out to your horse is the foundation of all communication. It can take on many forms and will allow you to learn to read and communicate with your horse, while building a trust-based relationship. It is the beginning to all success and will aid in improving existing relationships, embarking on new partnerships, and assessing character and health. From here, you can lead into starting young horses, problem solving, improving ground manners, teaching to lead & load, eliminate kicking, biting, and rearing, just to name a few. Creating this trust-based relationship with your horse can be a magical experience and the moment you feel that true partnership is a moment you will never forget.
If you had the privilege of joining us at Zuma’s Rescue Ranch for the Trainer’s Day in October, you probably saw Stepper, who was showcased during the second half of the day and who was handled by ROTH Certified Trainer, Liv Bjerre. He was a little nervous with the crowd and the speakers, but with patience and compassion for his situation he has been coming around. Anna found a lovely home for him that day and she continues to support them in their journey together as they learn about each other and how to communicate effectively. Below are some videos as an update on his progress and Anna shares her invaluable wisdom, as always, in her life-long effort to support the horses and the people who love them. Enjoy!
We do what you do…is a statement I hear all the time. Many round pen, but few understand the intricacies of the language of the horse, how to ask and not tell, how to listen and not speak, how to feel and be felt, how to put an intention behind an action, how to materialize a thought and how to tie it all together so that it becomes a flowing conversation without force, fear, or dominance. This is the art of reading a horse so to be able to impart first impressions, get to know one another, establish a mutually trusting relationship and discover who we have become and why that may be. We all have choices as to who we wish to be in this world and yet many fail the horses in their care. Allow this majestic, sensitive draft horse to share his story today through a non-verbal language at liberty and listen as I interpret his actions for you – a process made to appear easy. Recently returned from a failed adoption, rescued and re-rescued…now it’s time for Stepper to manifest the home of his dreams and this is just the beginning.
Once a gentle, innocent soul, Stepper found himself with a guardian who saw his potential and simply over faced him. Changing a dressage aid into a tool of terror he found himself at the end of the road of life before he was brought home and rescued for a 2nd time. Through patience and a kind assessment, it became clear just how much they had intimidated this gentle giant to the point of self defense. This was all about to change…as he embarked on a course in ROTH.
An initial conversation at liberty established a fundamental trust-based partnership, a mutual understanding and clarity around one another’s body-language nuances (part I). Advancing into ground-driving allowed for a deeper exploration of this rescued soul, providing a solid foundation to base our training program. Each step of the way his voice and needs heard and taken into consideration. Listen to the commentary to gain a greater understanding of the unspoken liaison between horse and handler.
It was a few years ago we gentled Sunny (Sol) at the ROTH foal gentling clinic at Ray of Light Farms in Connecticut. She was but a few weeks old and the most shy and smallest of them all – she has grown into herself and put her past behind her (being subject to the PMU industry). Sunny seeks eye contact, she seeks connection and clarity. When it was lost, she learned to tune out. She wants to read her trainer’s eye by tracking her thoughts and create a place of safety. Without it she runs riot in the round pen with it she moved into softness and relaxation! Its these little things that are so big for our horses, without them all goes wrong, with the subtleties it seems so simple when you know how.
I am excited to tell you that if you have received this announcement, it is because you have a chance to join me in Georgia for the very first time! That’s right. If you live in or near, Georgia and you’ve always wanted to see why ROTH is the most unique and effective training program in the world then this is your chance. No need to travel to Colorado, I’m coming to you! Quite honestly, I don’t know if this is the beginning of an annual event or if it is the one and only time I visit. So if you want to join us, don’t hesitate. It might be your only chance. Plus, let’s be honest, it’s just fun to hear my British accent surrounded by that beautiful Southern drawl. 🙂 All the details are below and space is very limited, especially for the horsemanship weekend. Hope to see you there. Anna

If you have been searching for a more evolved horsemanship method, if you want to take your skills and your relationship with your horse to a deeper level, then it is time to step into the world of renowned Equine Specialist and Natural Horsemanship clinician Anna Twinney.
In this 2-day workshop you will examine some of the most important elements in creating a trust-based relationship and training program with your horse and getting the results you’ve always wanted but haven’t necessarily been able to achieve.
First you will see just how effective the Round Pen can be in training your horse. Anna will show you how to use the Round Pen to create the ultimate foundation for a relationship with your horse, introduce the saddle or even solve your most challenging horse related problems.
She will also introduce you to the subtleties of the horse’s communication system and shows you how to use the Round Pen for one of it’s most powerful uses – understanding and assessing your horse’s history, personality, and character.
Anna’s unique method of using not only body language but also energy and inter-species communication will reveal just how communicative your horse really is and how we can use this comprehensive language to create and deepen a true partnership between horse and human.
You will learn how to: • Talk to your horse through your body language, energy & intention • Create a 2-way communication system with your horse • Use your eyes like a pro in the Round Pen • Understand how horses perceive your actions and the how’s behind the why’s. • Determine when the Round Pen is not the right tool for the job • And much, much more…
When combined with the horse’s language, the round pen will open up a whole new world for you and your horse. You will finally learn how to resolve your round pen issues and gain the leadership with your horse. Through communication, honesty and mutual respect you will be able to create a lexicon that far exceeds the round pen environment and experience a language that goes beyond body gestures.
Then you will explore important but often overlooked key elements to building trust with your horse. Say good-bye to frustration, struggle, confusion, misunderstanding, flaring tempers, fear and anxiety for both you and your horse. Instead, welcome to a new way of thinking, a new way of being.
Welcome to a day when your horse greets you at the gate with a rolling nicker, excited to see you, and invites you to ride. Welcome to a place where the two of you converse in the unique, silent language of your equine companion. Welcome to the world of a highly motivated individual; sharing mutual respect, understanding and enjoyment, naturally, and on a regular basis.
Anna will take you through the benefits of the Trust-Based Leadership and Compassionate Communication practice as seen in Volume 6, T.L.C of the Reach Out to Natural Horsemanship DVD Series. Then you will discover how seamlessly the TLC techniques work hand in hand to spook-bust your horse, desensitizing him from some of the most common situation and items.
With just a little TLC, you can set your horse up for success and achieve that connection of grace and ease you’ve always imagined.
Using Anna’s TLC methods you will be able to: • Understand the importance of intimacy and relaxation exercises and how to use them correctly • Overcome your horse’s challenging habits and behavior patterns • Prepare your young horse for his first saddle, bridle and rider • Desensitize your horse to common situations and tack • Prepare your horse for doctoring and medical examinations/emergencies • Earn your horse’s trust and learn how to continue to gain and build his trust • Develop methods to read your horse’s mood, personality, character, likes & dislikes • Create a toolbox to foster that perfect connection on a daily basis • And much more!
Regardless of your equine ability or pursuit, through during these 2 days you will develop tools you can use on all ages and breeds to understand your horse, establish a partnership based on unity and trust and finally enjoy a relationship with your horse that you’ve only dreamed about.
Finally Anna will introduce you to a way of speaking the language of Equus, connecting with your horse and having a whole lot of fun in the process.
Enter… the obstacle course.
Anna developed the course over 15 years ago, and since then thousands of her students from all over the world have worked with the Obstacle Course for a myriad of uses.
You will learn how to apply this safe and effective training approach to solve all sorts of problems and determine your horse’s learning style. From preparing horses for the trail, engaging school and therapeutic riding horses, spook-busting, through to establishing a communication system with performance horses and honoring the needs of the retirees, Anna will show you how to read the subtleties of your horse’s body language, direct your horse on the ground.
Then, once you’ve established a solid foundation, Anna will show you how to take the ROTH methodologies to the saddle!
These are 2 jam-packed days, full of info to show you how to not only give your horse a voice, but, just as imperative, understand what he is saying. You will learn how to develop your work on the ground and in the saddle and improve all aspects of your horsemanship.

Energy Healing for Horses
March 23rd 10am – 5pm
Zuma’s Rescue Ranch Littleton, CO
NOW OPEN TO ALL HEALERS AND MODALITIES!
One of Energy healing’s most effective uses is in the healing of horses. Horses, and animals in general, are great clients for energy work because they don’t have any preconceived notions or skepticism that often get in the way of human receptivity. An animal is simply present to the experience. If it likes it, it likes it and if it doesn’t it leaves: Simple as that. We have found that most horses love Reiki and other forms of energy work. They will quite often relax into the healing session, lower their heads, keeping a leg cocked in a relaxed position and even close their eyes as they enjoy the sensation. Many times you can even hear their stomachs gurgle as the healing energy flows through them, clearing energy blocks as it goes. And when they have had enough, they will often let you know by “waking up” and sometimes even walking away. During the workshop you will learn how to:
•Ask for “permission” from your animal companions
•Set up a safe energy healing session
•Scan your horse’s body
•Listen to your horse and read his body gestures
•Recognize the duration of sessions
•Liaise with friends & clients
•Share experiences and stories to further enhance your practice
Remember that Reiki and other forms of energy and alternative healing is not intended to be a substitute for Western medicine and a vet should always be notified in cases of illness and concern. But it is a powerful tool and can assist on many levels of healing.
Join Anna for this very special day as she shows you the most effective way to apply your practice and your skills to the horse. This is also a great opportunity to review your skills if you are a little rusty or maybe feel like you need a little more instruction. Improve your skill set, increase your confidence, and heal some horses!
No Prerequisite! This class is open to everyone who wishes to bring an energy healing practice to the horses and other animals to benefit our fellow planetary companions.

Find Out What Makes Reach Out to Horses® the Most Unique, Comprehensive & Effective Training Program in the World!
Session 1 was an awesome success and we had some truly wonderful people join us, both familiar and new faces.
And we are super excited for session #2 – Spook-Busting to Saddling-Up
We start with the magic of dancing with horses. People have strong views about the Round Pen. Some consider it an irreplaceable tool while others think of it as a cruel and useless environment in which horses are chased in a circle until they acquiesce to the will of their 2-legged tormentor.
Well as we learned in session 1, the Round Pen can be both! In the wrong hands or under inappropriate circumstances the Round Pen can be at best unhelpful and at worst cruel and even dangerous.
But in session 2 you will have a chance to experience the round pen through a different pair of eyes. during the 3-days you will have the opportunity to learn how to connect with your horse through liberty work. You will learn how to dance with your horse and explore the language of the horse – a true connection through gestures, energy and telepathic means. You will also explore the ways to develop and strengthen that true, Trust-Based connection, behavior modification, verbal queues, and more.
In short you will discover who your horse is, how to reach out and meet them where they are at and take your training and relationship to the next level.
But that’s just the beginning. Next we will continue the trust-based training with another valuable but misunderstood tool… the Obstacle Course.
You will work with your horse in-hand and address each aspect of horsemanship, building a repertoire necessary for success. Together you will learn to handle those particularly scary objects, to be a true leader in your herd of two and to build trust together while you prepare for the trail.
And the best part, up until now ROTH has only offered riding opportunities through private clinics – But in Session #2 you have the rare chance to take Anna’s methodologies onto horseback. Take guidance from an Equine behaviorist with over 30 years of experience.
Remember, each 3-day event is very hand-on, stands on it’s own, and all equipment is provided. Bring your horse or learn with one of the horses from Zuma’s.
Let Anna and her staff show you a new way of horsemanship and deepen your relationship with not only your horse but all horses.
We only have a few spots available so don’t delay, Sign up today!
