Brookhill Farm in Middleburg, Virginia will once again host Linda Tellington-Jones in a five-day horse training clinic featuring TTEAM (Tellington TTouch Equine Awareness Method) and TTouch. For over 30 years Linda has traveled the world teaching this extraordinary method of working with horses which arose from her belief that horses are intelligent, must be treated as individuals, that dominance based training is unnecessary and that training is more effective when the TTouch Golden Rule of Horsemanship is employed, that is: treat your horse as you would like to be treated.

Much of Linda's work with horses and other animals, including humans, is based on principles of the Feldenkrais Method of Awareness Through Movement, a type of physical therapy for people. Linda's TTouch body work, ground and riding exercises are designed to enable the horse to develop new neuropathways which allow horses to change habitual patterns of movement and behavior often in a very short period of time.

In the mid 1970's Linda began to understand that personality and behavior problems are inextricably linked to discomfort in the body. This caused Linda to change from looking at misbehavior as a problem to be corrected to recognizing it as a symptom of a problem. Such problems are usually discomfort, fear or lack of understanding. Linda eventually developed a training program that uses TTouches to relieve tension and increase body awareness, ground exercises to develop a horse's self-control, coordination and focus and work under saddle that increases balance, responsiveness and eliminates the need for forceful training techniques and gadgets.

Participants find themselves "wowed" by Lindas, calm, fun teaching approach and her extraordinary intuition. TTEAM and TTouch are easy to learn though the basic principles often challenge people to rethink the way they have been taught to work with horses. Many participants have found Linda's clinics to be life changing.

To date, there are over 1200 certified practitioners of Linda's work in 27 countries. These include both equine and companion animal practitioners. Linda has authored 15 books published in 12 languages and has produced 17 videos. Her sister, Robyn Hood publishes, "TTEAM Connections" a newsletter printed in English and German and distributed around the world. Linda's latest book is a revision of an older work. "Getting in TTouch with Your Horse" will be published in April.

Local equine practitioners of Linda's work include, Pam Wooley of Middleburg, pam@tteamva.com, Jan Snodgrass of Marshall, goodpony@aol.com, Joyce Anderson of White Post, Joyce@cloudninesaddlepads.com and Sandy Rankowitz of Charlottesville, sandy@onehearthealingcenter.com
