“Linda Tellington-Jones is one of the finest horsewomen we’ve ever met. It’s not often you meet someone like her. A lot of people want to help horses, but Linda has an ability to instinctively read horse, understand them, and determine what they want and need—and teach others to do what she does. Using her TTouches for a few minutes before you begin work with your horse establishes a fundamental connection at the start of your training session. It’s not only spending time, it’s spending good time. Most everything we do with our dressage and liberty horses now includes TTouch. We use it every time we have a little problem, if our horses are tense or seem tired. And even when there isn’t a problem, it helps us establish a deep connection with our horses. It is a part of all our work.”—Frédéric Pignon & Magali Delgado, the original stars of Cavalia and authors of Gallop to Freedom
3 WAYS DRESSAGE CAN BE BETTER FOR HORSE AND RIDER
GROUND EXERCISES • TTOUCH • RIDDEN WORK
“Foremost in Linda’s technique is the idea of trust—inspiring trust in the horse, nurturing that trust, and helping it evolve into a base so strong that your riding partnership can withstand all manner of challenges from without and within.”—From the Foreword by Ingrid Klimke, trainer, author, and Gold-Medal-winning Olympian
