Horse Whispering Goes to China
In early 2016, an invitation came from the Chinese branch of the American Quarter Horse Association for Anna to please come to Beijing and Mongolia. They wanted her to share her knowledge and wisdom. As well traveled as Anna is, China was a brand new experience.
“It’s truly a country of contrast,” Anna explained. She traveled from the metropolis of Beijing, with its economic success and high energy, to areas in the Mongolian countryside where indoor plumbing was an absolute luxury.
Often, in promotions for clinics, the question “Language Barrier?” is asked in regards to people understanding their horses. Though Anna was outfitted with excellent translators, difficulties in understanding remained. “It was a bit like being a horse, I imagine,” Anna explained. “I had to pay extremely close attention to body language, to facial expressions and interpret the intentions and ideas of the course attendees.”
“Though like always, I spent a lot of time showing students about connection and communication, these students were very interested in problem-solving. They really absorbed the information but were in great need of help when things weren’t going smoothly,” Anna said.
She worked with the students to help them understand that connection is the first pathway to problem-solving and it’s achieved easily with the right mindset and skills.
The event broke attendance records and attracted scores of television and newspaper reporters.
“They asked powerful questions,” Anna said.
Anna explained the Chinese were extremely hospitable and she was humbled and in awe of the lengths they went to ensure her comfort. She was partnered with a concierge who was on hand with everything from cold water during her lectures and demonstrations to an impromptu leg massage when she suddenly developed a terrible cramp.
She was treated to a trail ride in the beautiful Mongolian countryside. It was going rather quickly at first. Unbeknownst, Anna was riding with a national Chinese endurance team! She describes her few several minutes of the views as “blurry” due to the speed of the ride. Mercifully, her hosts slowed down so Anna could enjoy the sights and absorb the fact that we were actually, on a trail ride … in Mongolia!
One topic that particularly interested the people in the Mongolian crowd was the difference between the ROTH methodology and their traditional style of “horse breaking” (i.e. taking hold of their ears, turning their necks and manhandling them to incorporate their language). The entire village, vet, farrier and endurance team came to watch the training.
“They were astounded to see me approach a horse in moments that took them 2 hours to touch, and another wild horse who came around to appreciating and enjoying the lesson,” Anna said, “He accepted a halter without fear or force, all through gentling methodologies.”
Anna’s hosts in China were so pleased with their record crowds, with the valuable knowledge and insight Anna shared, that upon her return to Beijing she was invited as the prominent guest speaker to open the new western saloon! She has since been invited back to China.
“When I came to America 20 years ago, my goal was to learn as much as I could and bring this new found knowledge back to the police force. I wanted to spread the word to my fellow Bobbies, to show this small community that there was a better way. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine I would have the opportunity to share my message of compassion and communication and open up the way to a better partnership with people and horses, all over the globe. This is a very exciting time and I can’t wait to see where this message will take me next.”

From Hoof to Heart: Bridging Gaps between Horses and People
For Immediate release May 22, 2017 Elizabeth, Colorado Man’s relationship with horses dates back millennia. The progress of humanity and of industry is, in large part, due to the sweat and toil of these magnificent animals. Even today, the world is torn between animal welfare and human desires. It’s sufficed to say that the word “relationship” is somewhat of an overstatement when classifying the co-existence of man and horse. If the horse could speak,
