Freshly off a plane from Morocco, where she demonstrated communication with horses through body language and keen observation of the most subtle movements, Anna Twinney is back in Kalispell teaching her unique but comprehensive horse whispering methods.
Originally from the United Kingdom, Twinney, a veteran of the British Police has traveled the world helping horses with their people problems. She came to the states nearly two decades ago and initially studied with Monty Roberts, who came in to the limelight after the popularity of the major motion picture “The Horse Whisperer”. Over the years, her hands on experience, her dutiful observations of horses in the wild and her unique perceptions have developed into a way of interacting she calls “Reach Out to Horses”.
Twinney, with her sunny smile, blonde locks and lilting British accent seeks to help horse owners and lovers learn the language of the horse. She works to help them understand the energy and sometimes baggage they bring into a session with their horses. It’s all in an effort to create harmonious interactions that bring joy and happiness to both the horse and human. In addition to her desire to bridge the communication gap, Twinney is committed to helping nonprofits that help to rescue, rehabilitate and ready all types of equines. The vast majority of her work gives back financially to the facilities and programs she works with.
Twinney is fond of the adage “If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail” … without a complete education in the subtle signals and movements horses employ to communicate, people are lost as to how to accomplish anything, Twinney explains.
“Usually, people use force, fear and gadgets to bend the horse to their will. Some people are cognizant that their choices are poor and some are oblivious, my mission is to give a voice to the horses and show people a way to work with compassion and cooperation not coercion,” Twinney states.
Twinney is working with a group in Kalispell this weekend, aiding them with more intuitive riding, understanding the subtle cues and energy of horses, and working to build confidence through the use of an obstacle course. Participants will be introduced to the telepathic nature of horses and other animals. Horses, dogs and other species do not speak English but do feel and read intentions. A solid example of this theoretical concept is a person who is afraid of an animal and the clear evidence showing the animal is aware of the fear. This is clearly illustrated with dogs and horses. Twinney explores this concept and helps people tap into their intuitive nature.
This summer will land Twinney in four different locations beginning July 25th in aid of untouched foals in Oregon, the treasured Nokota horses of North Dakota, unstarted rescue horses in Colorado and finally helping horses with their people problems in Wyoming. These four unique courses are designed for students who wish to expand their understanding into everything from babies, youngsters, wild and behaviorally challenged.
These courses may be taken together or individually, but do require a pre-requisite. To learn more about what each course entails and the programs and horses that will be a part of the educational scope, follow the link:
