What is Tteam?
The Tellington Touch Equine Awareness Method (TTEAM) is a teaching method for horses that incorporates body work (TTOUCH), ground exercises and riding exercises to help improve co-ordination, balance, and athletic ability whilst deepening further communication and understanding between the horse and its owner.
TTEAM helps increase levels of self confidence and self-control.
Developed by Linda Tellington-Jones, TTEAM is used widely in many countries across the world
by Olympic dressage riders, pleasure riders, trainers, veterinarians, therapists and horse owners.
TTEAM techniques gently guide the horse through non-habitual exercises that can alter existing habitual patterns.
As posture affects behaviour, many owners note that unwanted behaviour diminishes as the horse's posture improves.
TTEAM teaches the horse to act, rather than simply re-act.
TTEAM blends well with many other modalities and training methods (particularly Connected Riding!).
It is not necessary to adopt the whole TTEAM philosophy in order to make a difference to a horse.
Learning just a few of the simple body TTouches and movements can help make a difference to a horse's life.
