View Full Version : TTeam?

Could someone give me a brief description of TTeam - what it is and how it can improve your relationship with your horse. Is there a book I can read which will give me more information about it?

I've never done TTeam, so I can't be descriptive, but basically it's a ground training (maybe some mounted) that helps build a relationship between you and your horse.
TTouch, I have done! :D TTouch is the physical part of the whole TTeam "experience." It's simple body massages you can perform on your horse that stimulates him, and if necessary in emergencies, help calm him until the vet comes, by massaging parts of his body that has nerves that go to the emotional or pain-sensation part of the brain.

I had a T-TEAM instructor for a wile. I think soem of them are good but this one was scard of the horse. This did not help when she was trying to explain thing and jumping whenever the horse just swished his tail. But i have tryed some exercises from the books and realy like them. I woudl never in a million years use the stallion chain thing no matter what anyone told me.

I love TTEAM and use it loads with Dolly. The highest qualified TTEAM practitioner in the UK is Sarah Fisher who is based in Bath, near Bristol. A search engine on her name might bring up more info.

You mean where she threads the chain around through the noseband of the halter? I wondered about that, too. I'm going to try some of her obstacle courses with Quanah over Christmas break, but I'm not planning on using a chain, either - Quanah leads so beautifully without one that I can't imagine I'll need it.
I have used it, though, on a few horses at the barn who are hard to lead. I figure it doesn't hurt them unless they pull on it, by forging ahead. I never pull on it from my end!:)
