Premarin is a common hormone replacement therapy drug prescribed to women to ease symptoms of menopause. The drug is derived from the urine of a pregnant mare (PREgnant MARe urINe). During the mare’s gestation period, they must stay in small, uncomfortable stanchions that limit their movement, restricting them from turning around or lying down. After their foal is born, the mare is bred again, and the process restarts. If a mare fails to breed, she is usually slaughtered.
The foals are often considered “disposable by-products” and are sent to livestock auctions three months after their birth. At the auctions, they are typically bought by “killer-buyers” who intended on raising the horse to slaughter and sending overseas for human consumption. Some rescue groups bid for the foals at these auctions. Other groups, like E.A.R.S (Equine Angels Rescue Sanctuary) work directly with the farmers, to prevent the foals from being sent to auctions at all.
Anna Twinney, founder of Reach Out To Horses®, works with groups like E.A.R.S. to train foals using her unique, gentle, trust based techniques. Anna is an International Equine Specialist, Natural Horsemanship Clinician, Animal Communicator and Karuna Reiki Master.
For over a decade, Anna has brought her highly successful methods to thousands of people. She teaches her students to work in the horse’s language to create a partnership between horse and human.
The revolutionary 4-part DVD system was edited by Creative Video Corporation, who worked with Anna Twinney and Reach Out to Horses to create this comprehensive training program, which can be accessed by all horse lovers.
