Further explanation of the TTOUCH clinic/workshop, July 14 & 15, Red Deer, AB. Participants without a horse are welcome! You will gain better understanding of TTOUCH when you bring your own horse.
Participants will gain hands-on experience with TTouch and TTeam Ground Work and have the option of experiencing a few of the TTeam riding tools if they wish.
A Brief Description of the TTeam/TTouch Approach:
--TTeam Ground Work enables the horse to override old behavioral patterns and to learn without fear or force. Using a variety of obstacles, including ground poles and plastic,TTeam exercises result in self-control,focus,self-confidence, cooperation, balance and coordination. Moreover,using unique ways of leading the horse provides opportunities for horse and handler to increase coordination.
--TTouch is a series of "hands-on" touches that help relieve tension, fear of contact, soreness or discomfort. The TTouch can transform a nervous, spooky or resistant horse and improve attitude and behavior.
--TTeam Riding equipment can improve balance and posture and improve behavior and athletic ability.
A major premise of the TTeam Method, is that the horse must understand, and be comfortable with what is being asked, in our work with them. If the horse is showing fear or confusion, the work is made simpler--"chunked down". This keeps the horse successful and unafraid. The learning comes more easily. We find this approach "builds" a very trusting horse. A trusting horse is a safer horse.
The gentleness and fairness to the horse, used in the TTeam/TTouch Method, brings a lot of joy to the work.
If some people want to climb on their horses for a few minutes to experience using the balance rein, neck ring etc. we can do that for a bit at the end of day 2. If other folks don't want to ride they can observe.
