TTouch recommended by massage therapists
Massage Therapist Recommends TTouch
"Having found Linda's work to be extremely effective when used on my dogs, I was not surprised to find it very effective when experiencing it myself. It has a profound effect on the nervous system, calming and balancing. As the owner of and teacher at a massage school in Kailua Kona, I would highly recommend this form of bodywork. It's time tested, easy to apply techniques, can be used stand alone, or easily combined with other therapies to bring about lasting healing and change."

Book About Linda Just Published!!!
Strike A Long Trot: Legendary Horsewoman Linda Tellington-Jones by Shannon Yewell Weil
This book chronicles the distinguished early equestrian career of Linda Tellington-Jones from endurance competitions at the 100-Mile Tevis Cup Ride to three-day eventing and steeplechasing at Pebble Beach.
Linda proved to be a superb educator, ably guided by her then-husband and Cavalry officer Wentworth Tellington. Together they created the Pacific Coast Equestrian Research Farm and School of Horsemanship.
Linda’s expertise was sought by a wealthy countess, and for years Linda prided herself in promoting the countess’ Hungarian horses, once revered as the finest warhorses in Europe. The book tells a charming story about how Linda transformed the stallion Hungarian Brado from a U.S. Equestrian Team reject into a champion.
After decades of sweeping wins in multiple disciplines, Linda retired from competition to pursue a global career of making a difference for all species of animals. The result was a remarkable internationally acclaimed Tellington TTouch® Training Method.
Available in Hardcover, Paperback and Kindle, 9 x 6 x 0.8", 256 pgs, 240+ photographs
We know how effective the Tellington TTouch Training can be for enhancing behavior, performance, and well-being, as well as developing a really special connection between horses and humans. For over 30 years we have received countless success stories from horse folks from around the world which have been recorded in the TTEAM Connections Newsletter published quarterly by my sister, Robyn Hood. But a question that comes up from time to time is: Why is TTouch and the method so effective? Last year Robyn published this report by Danish veterinarian Dr. Rikke Schultz which sheds some light on that question.
In Hawaii, Rick investigates the TTouch, creation of iconic horsewoman, Linda Tellington-Jones.

Hands-on help from one of the most caring and innovative animal trainers in the world today — this book is the key to a better quality of life for your dog.
When you think of your dog, what is the first characteristic that comes to mind? His “smile,” his gentle companionship, his good-natured bark when he sees a friend? Or, do you immediately think of his “bad habits”— maybe his tendency to jump up on people, the “accidents” he sometimes has in the house, or the way he pulls when you go for a walk?
“Change your mind, change your dog,” is one tenet of Linda Tellington- Jones’ renowned Tellington Method. By thinking of your dog in “perfect” terms, you can come a long way in solving problematic behaviors, training for a joyful partnership, and ensuring his health and well-being. Add to this Linda’s course in gentle bodywork, known throughout the world as Tellington TTouch, as well as specialized training equipment and obstacles in her Playground for Higher Learning, and you have gentle, proven ways to improve your dog’s attention, willingness, and confidence.

Earning a Horse's Trust Through TTouch: Knick Knack, A 3 year old draft cross, gets his hooves trimmed for the first time in over a year after "attacking" the farrier in a long, unsuccessful attempt. Knick Knack was simply unbalanced and ungainly. Teaching him how to first balance and then pick up his feet for extended periods of time, gave Knick Knack the trust in people not to panic and relax. To achieve this we used the principles and philosophies developed by the Tellington TTouch Method; which has been used around the world, with great success, for over 3 decades.
