Jan Snodgrass wants you to TTEAM up with your horse through lectures, demonstrations and clinics!

Jan Snodgrass has a 35-year background riding, training and competing horses. She has competed through advanced level 3-day eventing and third level dressage. For the past 20 years Jan has used TTEAM and TTouch, the training methods developed by world renowned instructor and behaviorist, Linda Tellington-Jones to train, retrain, rehabilitate and restore horse's bodies and minds. Jan is a self- described, "Horse Listener," always seeking to understand and enhance the unique connection that can exist between humans and our wonderful equine friends.

Just as her mentor, Linda Tellington-Jones, Jan recognizes horses as intelligent beings and as individuals with an inherent willingness to please people but for the obstacles placed in their way. Jan strives to teach people how to eliminate these common obstacles and how to develop a strong bond with their horses through a deeper level of awareness.

Though she works with all types of horses, Jan has focused on reschooling off-the-track Thoroughbreds for the past several years. Jan has a series on her web site called, "Reschooling the Thoroughbred" which stars "Xcellent Adventure" an ex-race horse she purchased at a VA auction.

Jan is a multi-year presenter at area horse expos including the Equine Extravaganza in Richmond and the Horse World Expo in both Maryland and Pennsylvania. In addition to her lectures and demonstrations at these expos Jan is also known for her musical bridleless jumping exhibitions with her former event horse, Harry Who? Harry is now semi-retired at age 26.

Though she will always see the horses as her most important instructors, Jan credits her human teachers as well. In addition to Linda Tellington-Jones, Jan cites Gabor Foltenyi, Jimmy Wofford, Karen O‘Connor, Denny Emerson, Peggy Cummings, Wendy Murdoch, and Katy Browne Masek, as the most influential. A perpetual student, Jan not only continues taking riding lessons but is on a constant quest to learn more about her equine friends. Her recent studies in liberty training with California based trainer, Carolyn Resnick has given Jan valuable new training tools.

Whether it is Jan's quiet, intuitive method of influencing a horse's mind and body, or her lighthearted common-sense instruction, audiences always find her fun, exciting, and thought provoking.

And, no round pen needed, no expensive equipment to buy!
