Are you a horse lover that wants a more harmonious, co-operative and trust based relationship with your horse?
The Tellington Method has been connecting horses and their people for over 45 years with a philosophy of understanding and empathy.
Combining various techniques and exercises of observation, bodywork, groundwork, and riding, the Tellington Method is suitable for all breeds, disciplines, and experience levels as a way to “Get in TTouch with Your Horse”.
What is the Tellington Method for Horses?
The Tellington TTouch Method for horses offers a handling and training approach that encourages optimal performance and well-being. Based on the understanding that behavioural issues are often caused by pain, soreness, fear or tension in the body, TTouch addresses these underlying issues through a combination of Observation, Body Work, specific Ground Exercises, and Riding With Awareness along with an overarching attitude of respect and consideration for the horse.
Overcome common issues that may limit behaviour and performance:
- Body tension
- High-headed posture
- Touch sensitivity
- Ear shyness
- Overall distrust
These are just a few of the many concerns that can be resolved with simple, non-habitual, force-free, and innovative Tellington TTouch approaches and techniques.
