Move From Fear and Towards Love Successes

We had another amazing weekend of learning the healing wisdom of equus at The Lil’ Bit Ranch with Melisa Pearce! Through expression and Reiki Melisa’s herd and Excalibur helped eight woman find the path leading from fear and towards love. Always a pleasure to see Anna and Melisa working with the horses in harmony and compassion.

Heres some of the quotes that we heard during the clinic:

  • “Inspired by what the future holds”
  • “Words cannot express who thankful I am”
  • “Second that woowoo sisterhood”
  • “Circle of trust has been created”
  • “Watching you with the horses is magical”
  • “If the weekend ended on Friday it would have been okay”
  • “Making decisions out of love instead of fear makes a difference”
  • “Starting a new suitcase of life”
  • “I didnt know what I was getting into and didnt expect what I got out of it”.

Looking forward to future collaborations and  teachings.

Experiences from the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo

International Natural Horsewoman and Equine Behaviorist, Anna Twinney experiences the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo through speaking engagements, lectures & demonstrations she shares her unique methodologies. Take your training, and the partnership with your horse, to a whole new level as she introduces 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. Anna teams-up with Melisa Pearce from Touched by a horse, for this very Unique and Intimate Conversation. Together they explore not only how to communicate with horses but also what horses have to teach us about moving away from fear and towards love.

We’ve all heard the saying, “You can never use food when training your horse.” But what if this well-known axiom, like so many hard and fast rules, was wrong? Join International Horsewoman Anna Twinney as she explains the do’s and don’ts and the why’s and why not’s of using food to solve some of your toughest behavioral problems. She will share the secrets of this effective tool, when it is appropriate, when it isn’t, and the common mistakes people make all the time when using “food as reward”. She will also discuss how you can use food to train your horse to do some pretty amazing things!

International Natural Horsewoman Anna Twinney will demonstrate some of the most important elements in creating a trust-based relationship with your horse and getting the results always wanted but rarely achieved. You will also see what makes the Reach Out to Horses methodologies unique, stress-free and extremely effective. Through the exclusive T.L.C. method (Trust-Based Leadership and Compassionate Communication), Anna and her students will show the importance of intimacy and relaxation exercises and how to use them correctly. If you’ve always wanted to apply your healing practice to your horses but were unsure or hesitant to begin, then join Anna as she shows you how to create a safe, effective and enjoyable healing session for your horse.

Is John Lennon Saving Foals from the Other Side!?!

Lil Bit Ranch North  

The Answer is Yes!… sort of…

An anonymous donor has incredibly donated a letter written by John Lennon himself to be auctioned online by Equine Angels Rescue Sanctuary. All the proceeds from this auction will go towards not only the rescue of our foals but, if we get a high enough bid, the rescue of even more foals in the future!

If you are a Beatles or a Lennon fan, you really don’t want to miss this chance to get your own piece of rock history while helping to save lives at the same time!

Find out how you can bid on this one of a kind letter!

September 27th, 2011 – East Haddam, CT

Equine Angels Rescue Sanctuary – CT, Ray of Light Farm – CT, and Equine Voices Rescue and Sanctuary – AZ are joining forces with Reach Out to Horses based out of Golden, CO, to rescue 12 foals and assist in the closing of a former Canadian PMU breeding farm.   In addition the proposed action plan will result in placing the remaining mares in sanctuary, gelding two year old stallions and helping to end the cycle of breeding for this Canadian farmer.

E.A.R.S. and Reach Out to Horses have already begun raising funds through sales of the new 4-DVD set Success: Foals in Training and through fundraising clinics and other events by Anna Twinney and Reach Out to Horses.  But we need your help.

The estimated cost for this endeavor is $16,100 so we are seeking individuals, and organizations who wish to assist in this inspiring project.  Whether it be donations, adoption, fostering or sponsoring, all assistance is welcome.  For more information, or to help save the lives of these foals, mares and stallions, contact Frank Weller, president of Equine Angels Rescue Sanctuary at 203-733-3576, or Anna Twinney, founder of Reach Out to Horses at  info@reachouttohorses.com, or click here to donate what you can to save these horses.

E.A.R.S. has worked for almost 9 years with these and other local farmers when they first saw the wisdom and win-win-win-win opportunities that would result if allied with the farmers. The genesis of that outreach is well documented in the book “Equine Angels: Stories of Rescue, Love and Hope“.

“The reason that this good faith alliance works is that we have spent time with the farmers and their families.”, says E.A.R.S. founder Frank Weller, “We understand the social and financial dynamics that are a huge part of their decision making process.”

Over the years E.A.R.S. has been able to ferret out the people who will live up to their word and those who won’t and to establish a verifiable protocol to put the mares in sanctuary. They now have trusted people in place who really care for the mares and report their condition. They know that other people are also reporting to E.A.R.S and all reporters are unaware of the identity of our other agents. In addition E.A.R.S. has created close relationships with the vets, the farm agents, the farmers and their families. The government takes meticulous statistics and we trust most of their numbers which have followed the decline of Premarin farming.

In addition to securing sanctuary for the mares and stallions E.A.R.S. will transport all 12 foals to a rescue just over the border in North Dakota. From there, 6 will go to Equine Voices Rescue and Sanctuary near Tucson, Arizona and 6 will go to Ray Of Light Farm in East Haddam, Connecticut where they will participate in the Reach Out to Horses Week of Foal Gentling Program.

E.A.R.S. and Ray Of Light Farm have collaborated on similar rescues for almost 5 years now and this will be the 3rd successful year of the ROTH Week of Foal Gentling Event.

Possibly the best piece of this effort is that this retired farm will no longer be in the Premarin farming or the breeding business all together. Financial implications are part of that decision and a as a working farm, they have other viable sources of income. That seems to make a big difference in that the farmers with other choices are less likely to pursue breeding for meat as a revenue source. As a rescue E.A.R.S. has often encountered that mindset and absolutely cannot enable farmers to breed by buying their foals. That would be a step backwards to say the least.
