Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Linda Tellington-Jones has worked with top dressage competitors and horses from all over the world during the course of her amazing career, which now spans more than 40 years. Through the Tellington Method, Linda has provided tools riders and trainers can use to better a horse's attention span and ability to learn; surmount behavioural and training challenges; improve flexibility, balance, and way-of-going; and recover from injury or illness.

In the pages of this very unique book, Linda combines her understanding of horses, her world famous TTouchbodywork, her proven groundwork techniques, and her innovative methods under saddle with exciting ideas specifically for the dressage rider and trainer. Her intriguing ways of looking at the Classical Training Scale, her tips for harnessing the power of intent, and the guiding principles in her Circle of Well-Being provide desperately needed keys to keeping dressage horses happy, healthy and performing their best.

To demonstrate how the Tellington Method can be practically applied to the dressage horse, Linda shares more than 20 problem-solving stories, featuring the world-class riders, trainers, and horses with whom she has worked. In addition, she includes techniques to help riders improve their ability to focus, cultivate habits of observation and patience, and practice the arts of understanding and thankfulness with both their horse and other human beings.

Includes bibliographical references (pages 274-275) and index.
