Tteam training?

Does anyone use it? How does it work?

I've used it for a long time with all sorts of horses, and it blends really well with other modalities.

It's system of bodywork, groundwork, and riding exercises that teaches horses to think rather than react and sees balance as being interconnected physically and mentally.

The Tellington TTouch (as it is now known) is really useful especially as it looks to find the source of behavioral problems (ie tension or pain in the body, fear) and address that rather than label the horse "dominant" or "disrespectful" and deal with as such.

It can seem a little different at first, especially as it doesn't really fall into a category, it's not Natural Horsemanship and it's not traditional, but the changes that horses can have are pretty remarkable all through non-confrontational methods. Their website Tellington TTouch Training™ has more info.

Are there any examples you know of that I can look up? I don't want to purchase materials for it and find it it's just not for me (and I'm a broke college student hehe...)

I know a lot of people that have found a Linda Tellington Jones book in the public library, that may be a way to get a taste for it. Also there are some clips of the DVDs on YouTube I believe. You may also look up on their website to see if there are any practitioners in your area that could show you first hand, some would probably even do an initial consult for free.

Thanks! Didn't think to look in the library, though I don't believe mine has it (I've scoured the horse section) There are plenty of others around to check.
