When you seek to understand them, you too will be understood. For these horses hold the right of passage to the Universe’s law of language - a secret, silent, language only available to those willing to hear." ~ Anna Twinney and equine disciplines. She has conducted over one thousand clinics and classes across the globe and was the first female clinician to take natural horsemanship to China and Mongolia.  


With over 3 decades in horse rescue and rehabilitation and specifically the protection of the American Wild Horse Annas assistance has been sought by numerous organizations including some of the largest rescues in the USA. She has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the horses in need and over one hundred organizations that share her passion for our majestic planetary companions she continues to collaborate with the Nokota Horse Conservancy to preserve the Nokota breed. Anna has gentled and trained over 1.5 thousand wild horses including those in the Premarin (PMU) industry, nurse mares and foals, feral and wild mustangs, feedlot foals, and tribal horses, exposing these often hidden industries.  You now have the chance to work closely with Anna to create your own wild horse gentling unforgettable experience.


As opposed to using traditional methods of force, control, or subjugation, Anna will demonstrate how to create consent-based conversations. Through her mission to discover the horse’s whisper, she has developed a unique methodology of discernment and dialogue without dominance. You will you have a first hand immersion as Anna, instead of chasing, choking, roping, using chutes, or worse, creates a contract built on mutual trust and respect, reflecting earned, honest efforts to see the wild horses’ true nature. 


“Once your heart has been touched by a Mustang, you will never be the same. There is nothing like the first connection, the first touch, between you and a wild horse. Come on the adventure of a lifetime. Look into the eyes of the wild horses and see the raw beauty that attracts so many to the wild hearts. As you draw deeper into the depths of their souls, your soul will awaken to the magic of these majestic beings. When you seek to understand them, you, too, will be understood. For these horses hold the right of passage to the Universe’s law of language - a secret, silent, language only available to those willing to hear." ~ Anna Twinney


This is a unique opportunity to observe wild horses in their natural habitat. You will begin to understand non-verbal communication with the natural world, be introduced to herd dynamics and develop a bond through building a trust-based relationship. The young horses being socialized in this clinic have come to the class through various situations. They have shown a natural desire to relate to humans. To make their futures less traumatic for veterinary care, future homes etc, these young horses will be your teachers as we take them through different stages of training from pasture to partnership.
