101 Things to Do with Your Horse with Anna Twinney

Our friend Anna Twinney has a new innovative, informative, and fun program titled "101 Things to do with Your Horse." It is a year-long program that will help people connect, communicate, collaborate, train, care for their horses, and show them how to enjoy the relationship with their horses when they aren’t riding or competing for just 10-minutes of educational materials and inspiration twice a week. For years, during her travels around the globe, Anna has heard the same thing from people of all different countries, walks of life, and interests. They say they would like to spend more time with their horses but other than riding and competing, they don’t know what to do. That is where 101 Things comes in. Each week, for an entire year, folks who sign up will be sent 2 new, short videos with great ideas they can try on the ground, in the pasture, the run, and even the saddle, to take their training, health and well-being, and most importantly, partnership to a deeper, more connected level and rekindle the relationship and the fun with their horse. You can see more details about the course here: https://reachouttohorses.mykajabi.com/a/18346/UB4vYoV4

Full 52 week program! Subscribers will have life-long access to the entire program. Click here to sign up: https://reachouttohorses.mykajabi.com/a/18346/UB4vYoV4

Barefoot hoofcare is a young, developing art and science. There is so much ahead to discover. After over 25+ years of hoof study, the leading hoof researcher in the U.S., Dr. Robert Bowker, says, "There is so much that we still don't know about the hoof!"

For more introductory barefoot info, we highly recommend Joe Camp's website thesoulofahorse.com and his books, especially The Soul of a Horse — Life Lessons from the Herd and Horses & Stress – Eliminating the Root Cause of Most Health, Hoof and Behavior Problems.

A Timeline of the Barefoot Movement by Yvonne Welz from The Horse's Hoof Issue 50
Using the archived files of THH, a detailed outline of barefoot events over this past 15 years is constructed--for the first time ever!
Yvonne writes, "This is NOT a complete history by any means, but just some of the more important points along the way of this past 15 years of the Barefoot Movement. I hope that after reading this document, you now realize just how newly developed the barefoot movement really is. And how we are ALL responsible for making history, at this very moment!"
