When I first heard about animal communicators
I was skeptical. It sounded neat but how scientific was this? How
would I know she didn't just make up a bunch of stuff? When
my beloved Paint gelding, Buddy, continued to be lame with no clear
cause, I phoned Lydia while standing with Buddy in his paddock. Then
she said, "Now about this hoof," and at that moment,
Buddy swung his problematic right front hoof forward, looked at
it, then looked at me. It was clear to me by the end of the conversation
that Lydia was the real deal; she really does talk with animals! As
my own confidence and knowledge about animal communication has
grown, I've found it just as valuable a tool as my in-depth study
of the Parelli Method of natural horsemanship. And imagine my delight
when I learned Lydia had begun to learn some Parelli too! Nothing
in this world is 100% all the time, and sometimes for various reasons
I've amended what Lydia has told me, but this skill is unbelievably
valuable when wanting to speak to and hear from our animals. Lydia Hiby is
Geeves, 2009: The first "reading" Lydia ever did
for me was a conversation with my first (late) horse, Geeves. Toward the end
of the conversation, I wanted to know if Geeves would allow my mother to ride
him one day. He told Lydia that he would allow my mom to ride him, but he was
worried about her health. He was picking up discomfort and some problem with
my mother's right hip. Lydia put her hands on her own hip to indicate the area
Geeves mentioned. Fast-forward three years: I was watching the video my best
friend took of that reading. My jaw dropped when I got to Geeves's comments about
my mom's hip: During the summer of 2012, my mother had to undergo radiation therapy
to treat a metastasis in her right hip. My mother also confirmed that in 2009
some abnormalities were detected in her blood tests, although the mass would
not be discovered until 2012. (Dark brown Thoroughbred)
Galahad, 2013: I brought a photo of my new horse,
Galahad, to have a reading by Lydia Hiby and other members of Lydia's animal
communication class. The reading went very well, and Lydia and the class gave
me a lot of information about Galahad's training. The next day, when I told my
friend (and trainer) what Lydia and the class had said, she asked what time we
spoke to Galahad. My friend had been training Galahad; my horse had been very
distracted during the ride--probably because he was talking to all of us! (Gray
Lydia has an amazing talent to communicate
with animals which blows me away every time I have a consultation with
her. It doesn't matter where in the world you, your pet or Lydia are
located, she tunes in to the animal and gives you the most interesting
feedback. I am starting a young horse "from scratch" and it is extremely
helpful every six months or so to check in with him and see how we
are progressing, but I have also had consultations with my dog and
cat which have yielded unexpected results! Lydia is also a wealth of
knowledge on animal health and numerous times has recommended that
I supplement my animals with specific vitamins or Bach Flower remedies.
I have recommended Lydia to many friends and business contacts all
over the world and will continue to do so.

I have always competed with border collies,
and Doc was going to be "my working Aussie," but I made a serious error
- I forgot to consider that Doc might be destined to do something else.
I took my problem to Lydia. To Lydia, each dog is a true gift, created
in its own image, with its individual purposes and destiny. She told
me Doc felt that his name identified him as a healing dog, a dog destined
to work with people, not stock... Doc went with Connie and Jim that
day, and he has not skipped a beat in his pursuit of becoming Jim's
best friend, Connie's partner in pet therapy, and a constance source
of strength and love for Bell and her family as they face the challenge
of her illness... I have come to realize that I was just a vehicle
used by Doc and a greater power to take him the place he really belongs,
beside bell and her family. - Connie
Thank you again so very much for all of
your help with our "Momma" Horse. She is now barefoot and
waiting for spring to get pregnant. We hope. We couldn't have done
so well at the Morgan Show without you. - Lisa R.
We are awed and exhilarated. Lydia was intelligent, compassionate,
quick witted, personable, warm,
funny, very knowledgeable and very
good with solid practical advice. She is an amazing resource and nailed
many aspects of Orka's life. Just how right-on she was becomes more
evident with each passing day as we get confirmations and evidence
of accuracy. Best risk we've ever taken! Worth every dollar in gold. We
will be calling Lydia Hiby again. Thank you Lord! - Leska & "Orka"
Over 12 years ago, Lydia and I were introduced thru a mutual
friend.... I then called Lydia many times about my cat and dog....she
always helped me with the questions we both wanted answers to,and what
they wanted me to know about them.
Your pets WANT you to know how they feel, think, what they want to
eat and sleep in......I never knew that until Lydia came into my life...but
it all makes sense why would they not?
We also, became fast friends and since then we have referred many of
our mutual clients to each other, she reads animals and I read people...we
make a great team.
Then one day - I had a big question for Lydia and she really helped
me out, if anything emotionally.
At the time, I had to have an emergency surgery and my dog Reba had
no where to go, my daughter was young and we were living in a new state,
I truly felt at that time that Reba was not getting quality care from
the both of us, and wanted to do right by her.
I found her a new owner,but we missed her so much, that we went to back get her
and bring her home.. the stress of all that took its toll on her..... she passed
away a month later, at 7 yrs old.
Being totally devastated, I was not ready to get another dog yet, I spend quite
a bit of time crying and feeling guilty. This is where Lydia comes in....she
helped me through this rough time. I knew she would come back to us, in a new
body and we would get her back....it just had to be when my daughter ans I were
For 5 years I asked Reba by looking at her photo, to tell me when she was back...one
day I heard -" I am back and am surrounded by Foxes."...I looked in
the paper ... one golden Pomeranian for sale by Cynthia Fox. I KNEW IT WAS HER
- does help being a psychic.
The breeder actually did not want to give
up the dog....well when I pulled her in her driveway.......little"Foxy" ran
across the yard and tried to jump in the car...so I knew right
then.....MY girl had returned. Many of you know this story as
we share a lot of clients.
“IF ONLY SHE COULD TALK ”
I knew my rambunctious Jack Russell Terrier had things to tell
me that I just couldn't understand. A friend who agreed gave me
a gift certificate for a consultation with Lydia Hiby, and I dialled
the phone, initially skeptical.
Well, Laura Jane told Lydia a lot of things - why she didn't like
being stroked on the top of her head; why she disliked one neighbor;
why she was obsessed with riding in the car; it all just came spilling
out of her! I listened and learned and laughed out loud. Among
other surprises I was able to confirm from her previous owner --
yes, she had chased sheep!
Laura Jane had to take a pill twice a day, but often spat it out
-- it was a constant problem to get it down her. When the call
was complete, Laura Jane showed up in the kitchen with a resigned
look on her face, and from then onwards ate the pill with her food.
I know that sounds improbable, but there's no other explanation.
I've called regularly since that first time, and I'd like to thank
Lydia for successfully helping both myself and all 3 of my rescue
dogs live happier, healthier lives. It really was the best gift
I've ever received.
Thank you very much for your wonderful insight on our foster girl, Misty. You
gave us information on her background and past that was helpful and validating
as well as information on the cause of the atrophy in her rear leg. You
picked up that it was from a minor spider bite and recommended a homeopathic
for it. Well, it worked and what was interesting was that the first time
I gave her the remedy she was resistant to it, but for the 2nd dose, which was
the next day, she practically grabbed the pellets out of my hand and was very
happy and enthusiastic about taking it. That spoke volumes.
She seemed to know that it was good for her or it was helping her.
Misty continues to thrive as we await her future forever parents. (more
Thanks again Lydia.
Diane, Rob and Misty-girl
you for YEARS of helpful communication and tons of fun with our
animals. You have been a helpful and enjoyable part of my "team".
Even when the information is difficult to hear, your style
and integrity has always been top notch. Thank you from my whole
barn; human and horses!

P.S. Cassius sends a special hello to you. he is healthy, happy and working and
showing upper level dressage at the age of 32. I am eenclosing a recent photo
of the two of us.
I met Lydia 9 years ago at the Regional of the Poodle Club of America,
in Riverside/ CA.
I made an appointment with 2 of my dogs ( one was Phoebe´s
grandfather) and I was impressed, how much she told me
about them. I bought her book and was fascinated what she
3 years ago I called Lydia, because I have had problems
dam. Now I contacted her again, because of Phoebe. Phoebe and I had
a bounding from the day of her birth. When she was almost 1 year,
she seperated herself and lifed her own live without being a part
of the family. I was unhappy, because she gave me the feeling, that
she is not happy at all. Also at dogshows she started to be afraid
of everything. The only way I thought I could help her and me, was
getting in contact with Lydia. So I wrote her an email and she told
me, what was going on and what I should do. Phoebe´s change
started about 3 days later. She is again "my " dog.
Happy and full a life . 5 weeks later at the Regional of
the Poodle Club she went BOV.
Thank you very much Lydia for giving me "my Phoebe" back.
It shows, that your work works worldwide, because Phoebe
and I live in Germany.

I could go on and on…let me know if you’d like more.
It really has been amazing. When I first got this horse he kicked
me in the stomach and bolted three times with me, all within a year!
I’ve had him nearly five years and Lydia’s reading last
February took us to a different place in our relationship, a really
deep and loving place.
Sorry…told you I could go on…
The initial reading on my gelding, Lakota, was so amazing and
right on. I couldn’t believe that you could know so much
about him without even meeting him. The information your provided
really helped me to help him. As a result, we are happily trail
riding where ever we can find a trail to tackle. As an advanced
PNH student I thought I already had a really good relationship
with Lakota. After your reading I feel like that relationship
went to a deeper level of understanding between us that included
even more trust. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing
your gift of insight. We both appreciate you so much.

"I was about to choose my 'pick puppy.' I showed Lydia a picture
of the three girls. Lydia immediately picked out Oakley. She told
me that the puppy had a great personality, and wanted to do EVERYTHING.
Oakley was not the one I was thinking of choosing. From what she
said, I knew Oakley was the one that would fit into our family best.
Lydia was correct as usual. Oakley is such a sweet soul and is happy
anywhere in the pecking order. She is exactly as Lydia described.

"The first time I called upon Lydia for help was several years ago
when our horse had a lameness problem. Two veterinarians were having
trouble finding the cause. I had Lydia talk to the horse. I wrote
down everything that she said, so that I wouldn't get anything wrong.
When the veterinarian returned to do more testing, I mentioned that
I had spoken to Lydia. I was told, 'I deal in science, not magic.'
After several hundred dollars worth of X-rays, etc., guess what?
Lydia was right. Everything the test showed matched exactly to what
I had written down. The horse was given special pads and shoes (even
the angle of the wedge was correct). The horse has been sound ever
since. Lydia is a Savior to people, as well as animals. It is a joy
to know that when problems arise, Lydia can let you know what direction
to take. I will be eternally greatful for all Lydia does."
Thanks for the wonderful work you do. You have
opened the bonds of communication between Annie and I. I will always
be grateful for the gift you have given us.

Tibby and I first attended Lydia's class
in the fall of 2002. During the afternoon portion of the class
Tibby told one of the class members that he wanted to be a "therapy dog" and
As a result in 2003 Tibby and I became part
of the Pet Assisted Therapy program at Huntington Memorial Hospital
in Pasadena, CA. Tibby took part in the program for the next
three years, until age and health caused his retirement. In that
time he brought cheer and was a great source of comfort to many
seriously ill and sometimes dying people. Short before his retirement
Tibby told a class member "one
of his 'patients' was going to die soon." I asked if he knew
which one? He show the class member a picture of an elderly woman
with light hair and big glasses. This description did not match
any of the patients we had visited recently. However, it did match
a neighbor of ours, who unbeknownst to me, had gone into the hospital
the night before. Tibby had visited the neighbor several years
before when she had a pacemaker implanted, I guess in his mind
that made her one of his patients for life. Our neighbor died three
days later while undergoing heart surgery.
Tibby, whom Lydia adopted as her "nephew," and I continue
to attend the class regularly. Tibby is introduced as the exception
to the Lhasa rule. Tibby has been promoted to assistant teacher,
and is used as the lead off animal during the practice portion
of the class. Tibby loves to "talk to people" and help
them learn the communication skills, he is happiest when he has
a large class to "teach."
