Has anyone heard of this meathod. It was thought up by Linda Tellingtion - Jones I think. And she has a book out about it with another person.

Also has anyone heard of join up created by Monty Roberts?

Are these safe and reliable practices?

Yes, it really works. I have a really lively thoroughbred, it works everytime, I just softly speak to him, and then stop after a while, while doing the t-touch. Then he's all calmed down.

No personal experience, but I know several people who really like the "join up" that Monty does.

I like the t-touch, although I only read an article about it. I was already sort of doing it. I give Christy a nice massage every time I groom her, and after every ride. I know her "special places," where she gets tight, and where it just feels great... It relaxes her especially after a ride, and I think makes her feel much better. Besides, it is great as a bonding exercise... You are truly grooming them, and they love it!

''join up'' by Monty Roberts is wonderful, in my opinion. I rescued an off the track, backyard, starved, passed around, used as a broodmare, thoroughbred and she HATED me when I first got her. Ears back, kicking, biting, the whole nine yards. Can't blame her though, how was she to know I'd be different? It took time, but using the monty roberts technique in the round pen was absolutely awesome for me! I really bonded with that mare and she became the complete love of my life. Make sure you know what all the signs to look for are, like lowering head and chomping/licking lips then turn your back towards her at a 45 degree angle etc.. It worked for me and my horse. It is definitely worth the try!

Thank you. I just bought a book of Monty and im going to try it on my friends horse that rears (long story,lots of complications) I also ordered another book of his and read up on the method of t-touch.

Please keep us up to date on how that's coming along!! I read a book that talked about t touch, but no one at my barn has tried it, so I would really like to know how it works!
