About the Event

This clinic is aimed at those who are interested in exploring the Tellington Method whether you have done Tellington workshops, online learning or are just curious.  

The Tellington Method, based on co-operation and respect, offers a positive approach to training.  It can improve performance,  health and presents solutions to common behavioural and physical problems.  It also helps establish a deeper rapport between humans and animals through increased understanding and more effective communication. The Tellington Method is a gentle, non-invasive, easy to learn and effective way of working with animals and people.  It is founded on mutual respect and comprises of:-

• Bodywork

• Groundwork

• Ridden work

• Communication

It improves a horse’s balance, spatial and body awareness, it can reverse postural habits, and increases trust and confidence.  It works through the nervous system by bringing awareness to different parts of the body, helping change posture and function in a holistic way, combining mind and body.  It helps horses learn in non-threatening ways through non-familiar touches and exercises. The novelty of the work is key to its success.  The nervous system takes note of the non-habitual movement to change postural habits that might be causing pain, lack of function etc.

Description:  

This 2-day Clinic will focus on refining and enhancing current skills and is easily adaspted for beginners.  There is always something new in each clinic. You will develop a deeper relationship with your horse and help them to be more confident, balanced and body-aware. The Tellington Method is great for improving proprioception and straightness.  It is used by inspiring horse people like Frederic Pignon and top-level riders such as Ingrid Klimke to help teach balance and spatial awareness. This helps a horse be more biomechanically functional when ridden, improving comfort, well-being and therefore performance. It is extremely useful for rehabilitation, complementing training at any level, developing young horses, rectifying non-useful postural habits and helping horses with behavioural issues.  We will cover bodywork and groundwork including body wrapping in this clinic. This is a very gentle and effective way of being with your horse. It does not matter what discipline you are interested in The Tellington Method works for all.

Instructor:

This clinic is led by Australian Instructor, Rebecca Booth.  Rebecca works professionally as an Equine Bodyworker and discovered the Tellington Method over 15 years ago when she needed to find a gentler way of working for her job and for 2 of her teacher horses (Tango and Fergus)
