Ground Exercises, and Riding With Awareness.
TTEAM® - the Tellington TTouch method for horses - Improves Behavior, Performance, and Well-being and Enhances the Relationship Between Horse and Rider.
TTEAM® offers a training approach that encourages optimal performance and health and presents solutions to common behavioral and physical problems. TTEAM® horses demonstrate marked improvement in athletic skills and increased willingness and ability to perform. Not only does the horse benefit, but also a deeper rapport grows between horse and rider because of increased understanding and more effective communication.
There are three phases of TTEAM™ work:
- TTouch® Bodywork
- TTeam® Ground Exercises
- The Joy of Riding
With the TTEAM® approach, a series of Ground Exercises enable a horse to override old patterns and to learn without fear or force. Using a variety of obstacles including labyrinth, ground poles and plastic, TTEAM® exercises result in self-control, focus, self-confidence, cooperation, balance and coordination. Moreover, eleven unique ways of leading a horse provide opportunities for both horse and rider to increase ability and coordination
The Tellington TTouch® helps to relieve tension, fear of contact, soreness or discomfort and transforms nervous, spooky or resistant horses and improve attitude and behavior. With TTouch® your horse will enjoy learning and cooperate willingly. TTouch® has been used extensively to speed healing and recovery from injury and illness in horses and in all animals, including humans.
The TTouch® techniques for first-aid offer animal owners an invaluable tool. Hundreds of case histories about emergencies with colic, illness or injury demonstrate the value of TTEAM® work with the ears to keep a horse out of shock or to bring a horse out of shock while waiting for the veterinarian.
The Joy of Riding combines Linda's 30+ years of teaching classical riding and her experience as a Feldenkrais practitioner for humans. TTEAM® has developed several unique tools like the Balance Rein, the Neckring and the TTEAM® Training rollerbit to encourage the well-being of the horse. Experiencing the joy of riding with awareness increases the comfort, performance and confidence of horse and rider.
