Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Finally, a comprehensive collection of world-renowned equine expert Linda Tellington-Jones' healing equine bodywork and training exercises, for use both on the ground and in the saddle. In one fabulously illustrated book, those new to Linda's approach are provided with a clear, step-by-step introduction to the Tellington Method, while those familiar with her work finally have the ultimate go-to reference.

The book is divided into three parts.

Part One briefly explains the background of the Tellington Method and then discusses the reasons for unwanted behaviour and poor attitude in horses. Part Two, arranged alphabetically, contains a compendium of 72 common behavioural, training and health issues, many of which horse people face on a daily basis. In this A to Z format, from Aggressive to Other Horses to Weaving, Linda discusses the possible reasons for these behaviours or problems and offers conventional methods of solving these challenges, as well as training solutions using the Tellington Method. Part Three presents (for the first time in one volume) the complete body of work that makes up the Tellington Method: the Tellington TTouches, Ground Exercises, and Ridden Work.

At the end of this section, there is also a detailed case study, which includes 49 photographs showing every step along the way to successfully teaching your horse to load.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 311-313) and index.

An illustrated instructional manual offering step-by-step solutions for hundreds of horse behaviour, health, and training problems.
