Team/Connect Riding® Clinic
A Greater Sense of Well Being for You and your Horse
Dates to be announced.
Developed by internationally recognised animal expert Linda Tellington Jones, the Tellington TTouch Method (TTEAM) for horses offers a 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 Body Work, specific Ground Exercises and riding tools. www.ttouch.com
Day 1 will focus on TTouch body work and perhaps a small “taste" of Connected Riding Body work. There will be demonstration time, time to practice between people to get the feeling-if the group is comfortable with that. Then lots of practice time on horses working in groups of 2 or 3 per horse.
Day 2 will focus on the TTouch Method Ground Exercises. Once again, I will do some demonstration throughout the day. There will be some time practicing skills with people and then practicing skills in small groups with the horses.
Day 3 and 4 it gives us the luxury of learning more TTouch tools, as well as more practice time for tools learned on Day 1 and 2. As well an introduction to considerably more body work tools from the Connected Riding Ground Work.
