Great New Clinic – Exclusive Equine Behavior

Denver, CO – Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute is proud to host a unique clinic with incredible insights into equine behavior with world renowned equine specialist Anna Twinney on October 1-2, 2011 in Littleton, Colorado. Through hands-on and lecture, participants will build their understanding of equine behavior and learn how to develop a two way communication system with an equine partner.

Anna Twinney will share the intricacies of the Language of Equus, and how to create a Genuine Trust-Based Partnership with horses. Horsemanship is more than training; it’s about understanding the horse and communicating in the horse’s own language.

According to International Equine Behaviorist and Natural Horsemanship Clinician, Anna Twinney, “The most important element to building a true, trust-based partnership with your horse is a solid foundation of communication and allowing them a voice. What many do not realize is there’s so much more to the silent language of Equus than simple body language and physical cues.  This 2-day clinic is an introduction to the power, the subtleties and the effect this ancient communication system can have on your training, your relationship and even your life with the horses.”

This two day Exclusive Equine Behavior Clinic is October 1-2, 2011 in Littleton, Colorado.  The clinic cost is $300.

Madalyn Ward, DVM Partners with Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute to Offer a Ground Breaking Online Course

Denver, CO – Madalyn Ward, DVM, a pioneer and author in holistic veterinary horse care, has partnered with Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute to create a new, unique online course: Understanding Horse Types & Temperaments. This course is an invaluable resource for every horse guardian, trainer, and stable manager. Since each horse is an individual, knowing the type provides practical management tools leading to their optimal performance.

Understanding Horse Types & Temperaments is based on the Traditional Chinese Medicine Five Element Theory and teaches people how to recognize equine “personalities” within this context. For instance, an affectionate horse who loves attention is demonstrating a Fire Element nature. Another example is a horse with a Water constitution will tend to have a dense body, shiny coat, enjoys working, but needs to feel safe and secure. By identifying the horse’s traits within the Five Elements people will be able to find the best way to work with each horse including: discipline/sport, training style, diet, exercise level, plus identify health issues that may arise.

Dr. Madalyn Ward is one of the first and foremost veterinarians in the United States to research and implement more natural and holistic approaches to horse management. She is the author of the renowned book HorseHarmony: Understanding Horse Types and Temperaments. Horse people completing the Tallgrass online course will have achieved the Level 1 Typing Certification with Dr. Ward’s Horse Harmony Program. Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute participants will receive 20-elective credit hours upon completion of Understanding Horse Types & Temperaments.

Nancy Zidonis, Co-founder of Tallgrass, comments: “This is a ground-breaking course – it brings Dr. Ward’s extensive natural horse management work to a broader audience of people who really want to take the best care of their horses. There’s no other course like it. Riders and equine professionals need to understand how to work with their horses for mutual enjoyment and top performance.”

Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute offers on-line and hands-on training including a Practitioner Certification Program in equine and small animal acupressure worldwide.
