I've never done tteam, but I have done ttouch (a "sister" method). Works good (ttouch=massage/ tteam=training method). I've heard good things about tteam, though.

I've just started doing the TTeam leading and groundwork exercises with my horse. They're aimed at improving communication, losing the one-sidedness that we foster in our horses, helping them to realise how their bodies are connected and also obedience.
So far I've done work with a bodywrap (two stable bandages or a length of rope wrapped around the hindquarters and withers) and a couple of the different leading techniques. My horse seems okay with it and is more responsive than she has been. She likes the treats she gets when she does it right best (incorporated a bit of clicker training into the sessions).
I think its worthwhile so I'm going to continue. I'm working from the book, "Improve your horses wellbeing".

Can you tell me the details of this book so I can buy it. I'm open to ALL Natural Horsemanship at the moment. I've realised I've used it for years but need desperately to refine what I do so I have the answers for my horse when she asks the questions. I've never had such a 'flight' orientated mare in all my life as my pally gal

The book I have is called Improve your horses well being, by Linda Tellington-Jones. It cost about £15 from Amazon. If you search Amazons site you should be able to find it. I understand that there are a couple of other books by the same author so you could try an author search and see what comes up.

TTEAM stands for Tellington Touch Equine Awareness Method, or Tellington Touch Every Animal Method.
It was invented by Linda Tellington Jones and there are many practitioners around the world.
It's aim is to deepen the bond between animals and people, using animal communication methods (for example Clouded Leopard Touches are very similar to horses performing mutual grooming).
It's a fantastic training method, and increases suppleness and co-ordination. There are loads of books out about it - I highly recommend it!
