Meet Robin Stinson of Fior Anam in LA

Today we’d like to introduce you to Robin Stinson.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
It all started in the early 80″s with a black stallion named Shadow. A magnificent horse who I ended up owning as a total novice. His patience, strength, loyalty and trust taught me the same. He introduced me to my spiritual (not necessarily religious) self. Thus, a partnership with horses evolved. This partnership continues to drive my passion for the enlightenment of others and their equine partners. A healthier and more holistic approach to life has been a passion of mine for years. In 2003, I was ever so fortunate for my now friend and mentor, Rahansia Ben Mejuri, to find me and my equine partners. Gentle Gaits Equestrian Center was the home of our beginning. It was Rahansia’s guidance, teachings, spirituality and simple beliefs that inspired me and set me on this path. Since that meeting, I have made every effort to create and practice a holistic lifestyle. Sharing my passion with others and their equine partners to improve their lifestyle has been a personal mission. In keeping with my natural, organic and holistic approaches I chose the name Fior Anam, meaning “pure soul” in Celtic. In 2016 I launched Fior Anam. My mission… We are dedicated to providing holistic, all-natural (organic) alternatives for horses and their owners. The launch of the Fior Anam product line for horses and humans has lead to the practice of Equine Massage Therapy and now Thermal Imaging.

Has it been a smooth road?
People are becoming more aware of how the chemical laden products they use on their horses negatively affects their horse and them. This is a tough “sell” to some as they see their horses as an “animal” and think these chemicals don’t really matter. The addition of integrated massage therapy has been awesome. I just can’t keep my hands off them. This too has been a bit of a challenge as people see massage as a “treat” when in truth it is as beneficial to the horse as it is to us. Enlightenment takes time.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Fior Anam – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Simply stated……my desire is to tap into my passion for people and horses to drive change in an industry that often views these noble beings as commodities. Fior Anam will be recognized as the premier “go to” for an equestrians holistic lifestyle. I am encouraged everytime I get a positive review that one of our products has made a difference or I leave a massage session and the horse is moving better. These are the things that make us different. It truly is about Mind, Body and Spirit!

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
What are your plans for the future? What are you looking forward to or planning for – any big changes?

Our goals are limitless! Adding Thermal Imaging to our holistic practices opens new opportunities to fulfill our holistic driven mission. We are always researching and exploring new natural formulas for products. Along the lines of equine massage therapy we have recently added cranial sacral, hot stone and accupressure in an effort to better address the different needs of individual horses.
