On the evening of the Trainer’s Day, Zuma’s Celebrated their 10th Anniversary with a masquerade ball. Paul and Jodi humbly expressed their gratitude to all the people who help contribute to Zuma’s efforts, and one notable mention was ROTH and Anna.
“For 9 years, Anna and the ROTH Methods have been a big part of Zuma’s platform. Together, Anna, Katie, and Jodi have spent hours discussing and taking action upon ways to make the world a better place through compassionate equine education programs. Anna’s clinics and courses at Zuma’s have generated much-needed training for horses and humans, along with funding in the process. Anna’s presence at Zuma’s has brought global donors to our mission by way of international student participation in ROTH at Zuma’s. Partnerships like ours have been mutually beneficial for both ROTH and Zuma’s. The horses receive training, revenue, and sponsorship, and ROTH expands its training methods to Zuma’s base of supporters.”
And to Anna and Vin,
“As you develop your awareness in nature, you begin to see how we influence all life and how all life influences us. A key and critical feature for us to know.” -Tony TenFingers/Wanbli Nata’u, Ogalala Lakota
Walking amongst the silent ones at Zuma’s we are keenly aware of the positive influence your contributions and generosity have had on all of our lives. Thank you for your kindness and your gifts.
In Peace and Gratitude,
Jodi & Paul
Jodi’s husband, Paul, also read a poem that he composed on behalf of the decades of efforts on Jodi’s part for all of the animals. Enjoy!
By the edge of the pines, at the foot of Wendy’s Hill,
is a place called Zuma’s, where time stands still.
Where the friends of woman and man do run,
when their time of despair is over and done.
For here, between this reality and the next,
is a place where beloved creatures find rest.
On this golden land, they wait, learn and play,
til The Rainbow Bridge (Adoption) they cross over one day.
No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
for here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed.
Their bodies have healed with strength imbued.
They trot through the grass without even a care,
til one day they whinny and sniff at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes sharp and alert.
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the herd.
For just at that second, there’s no room for remorse.
As they see each other…one person…one horse.
So they run to each other, these friends from long past
The time of their parting is over at last.
The sadness they felt while they were apart
has turned to joy once more in each heart.
They nuzzle with a love that will last forever.
And then, side-by-side, they cross over to forever…together.
Some of our trainers from this year have been with Anna for decades. Their journeys have taken them across the U.S., and most have spent weeks, if not months, away from home to complete their certifications.
Here are a few words from three of this year’s new crop!
From ROTH Certified Trainer, Staci Grattan, MN:
“Six years, thousands of miles, countless days away from loved ones, a positive difference made in many equine lives, friendships, connections, stretched in ways I couldn’t possibly imagine, personal growth on a beautiful and sometimes painful scale, capturing joy, joining a tribe and realizing a goal and dream. A visual of the culmination.”
“Eve and Staci on the Reach Out to Horses Train the Trainer exams today at
Zuma’s Rescue Ranch in Littleton, Colorado. We are working our way through remedial issues including her strong objections to worming & vaccinations. (Can’t say we blame her) Eve is at Zuma’s as a part of the #brush23 group of horses rescued from an animal hoarding situation that turned into a rush to save them from the kill pen. Eve is a 7-year-old Thoroughbred mare.”
From ROTH Conditional Certified Trainer, Laura Schumann. OH:
“And so…after a long and wonderful journey….conditional means I choose not to do all possibilities, such as colt starting. Bottom line…this is a hard-won completion leading to the beginning of the next step on this amazing journey. Standing in my power. Living fully, in authenticity.”
Below is Laura ponying Sage, who had never been ponied before.
And from ROTH Certified Trainer, Carolina Bärtsch, AZ:
“A dream come true! There are many ways to interact with horses, few seem fitting to me. This certificate is a milestone on a long journey to treat the animals right. Reach Out to Horses is a very modern, extremely comprehensive and compassionate approach. Well worth the effort, returns are incredible. Stay tuned, more about this to come as I venture on.”

FREE Coaching Webinar for the Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur
We just finished up our 2017 Animal Communication Mentorship Program and many of our graduates are excited to take their new found (or newly refined) skills to the world, and help as many animals (and their people) as they can.
But when it comes to creating a business out of animal communication, healing, horses, or any service-based business really, it’s easy to look around and think, it’s all too aggravating, too hard, too scary… It’s all just too much. Before you know it, you are paralyzed, unable to move forward on the exciting dream you had.
This is why our good friend, Business Miracles Mentor, Heather Dominick, created a really unique LIVE webinar class specifically for highly sensitive people like you. She will teach you things like:
what to do when you feel overwhelmed so it doesn’t stop you in your tracks
what you need to prioritize during your business day (so it feels good, gets done and generates income)
who you need to speak to in order to attract your ideal clients (and how it doesn’t need to feel all that intimidating)
She’ll be teaching this class on Tuesday, January 10th – Just click this link to get your seat: https://energyrich.isrefer.com/go/webinar/AnnaTwinney
Heather says that for Highly Sensitive Entrepreneurs it can be tempting, when it all feels like too much, to shut down, contract, and try to protect yourself at all costs (or go into chaotic, panicky road runner mode). When what’s actually happening is that you are receiving a call to OPEN UP, not give up!
It’s an opportunity to consider the possibility that there might be another way.
That’s exactly what she’ll be teaching you on this LIVE webinar class… and it’s FREE. Click here to register: https://energyrich.isrefer.com/go/webinar/AnnaTwinney
As you know, we don’t often promote other people or other programs. We believe in earning, and keeping, your trust. We don’t want to waste your time selling everything under the sun for a few extra dollars.
We only tell you about people and programs that we consider effective and special. Heather is one of those people, and her coaching for Highly Sensitive Entrepreneurs is one of those programs.
The webinar is free and Heather, like us, won’t waste your time. She is filling that webinar with content-rich material.
You’ve got nothing to lose but the fears and habits that are holding you back!
2018 is calling for Business Miracles!
P.S. Almost forgot. She’ll be opening up the floor for a LIVE Q&A at the end, too. So be sure to get your seat here: https://energyrich.isrefer.com/go/webinar/AnnaTwinney

A Special “Thank You” came from Zuma’s Rescue Ranch, a rescue with whom we are SO BLESSED to partner year after year.
Pictured are Jodi Messenich, owner and operator of Zuma’s Rescue Ranch, Elaine Nash of Fleet of Angels, who provided us with untouched mustangs for this years Trainers Course, and Miss Anna Twinney herself.
It is with tremendous pride that Anna and Reach Out to Horses welcome our newly certified trainers to the fold. They have worked tirelessly, some since as far back as 2006, to develop their passion for and mastery of the Reach Out to Horses practices and methodologies. To Dora, Ben, Lani, and Jill, CONGRATULATIONS on your accomplishment! Your dedication and persistence have certainly paid off! Welcome to the ROTH family and we are so pleased that we get to continue to watch each of you grow as you go out into the world and bring the ROTH flavor of Natural Horsemanship to the horses and their people!
A Trainer’s Exam Kind of Wonderful Day!
On Sunday, October 29th, Reach Out to Horses brought our day of Holistic Horsemanship to a number of interested folks as we watched our trainers strut their stuff! Hosted by Zuma’s Rescue Ranch, the day was a great success as our four trainers demonstrated the types of things they had been working on throughout the week. With Anna narrating it was much easier to note the subtle pieces of communication being exchanged between the horses and the trainers. All of the proceeds went to Zuma’s Rescue Ranch, particularly to care for their two newest editions, the Hallelujah Horses, Ariel and Saphiel.
Elaine Nash, of Fleet of Angels and the Hallelujah Horses, was in attendance to see how the two mustangs had progressed over the week. Hoping to find them homes through the event, all of the proceeds went to Zuma’s Rescue Ranch to support in the effort. Pictured here are Jodi, our most lovely host at Zuma’s Rescue Ranch, Elaine, and Anna. The Rescue was supported, the mustangs received critical training to help better their chances of finding a forever home, and our ROTH trainers had excellent horses with whom to work as they honed their skills and learned to truly capture the whisper. A win for everyone!
Reach Out to Horses would like to thank everyone who attended the event and who supported our trainers, the Rescue, and the Hallelujah Horses. We also want to thank those who shared with us their four-legged companions so that our trainers would have an excellent experience and horses/burros who would help them develop the subtle skills that are such an integral part of everything ROTH. We want to thank all of our supporters as this event was a hit! THANK YOU!!!
