The Tellington TTouch
Author: Linda Tellington-Jones
Publisher: Penguin Group USA
Distinguished animal trainer Linda Tellington-Jones combines her extraordinarily successful experiences performing the Tellinton TTouch with solid how-to advice that anyone can use on dogs, cats, horses, birds, even reptiles and exotic animals to show how to release the pain, fear, and tension so many animals suffer.

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 behavior and poor attitude in horses. Part Two, arranged alphabetically, contains a compendium of 72 common behavioral, 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 behaviors 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.
From My Hands to Yours
Author: Monty Roberts
Publisher: Monty & Pat Roberts Incorporated
Erste Reitversuche am Strand, Unterricht bei Paul Stecken und Egon von Neindorff, Schülerinnen wie Paralympicsreiterin Bettina Eistel und die Erkenntnis: „Von den Pferden, die mich an den Rand des Wahnsinns brachten, habe ich am meisten profitiert.“ Jahrzehnte bevor alle Welt von Pferdeflüsterern sprach, machte sich Wolfgang Marlie auf die Suche nach neuen Ideen zum Umgang mit Pferden. Die Journalistin Ulrike Bergmann hat seine Arbeit vier Jahre lang begleitet. Gemeinsam zeichnen sie seinen Weg vom ehrgeizigen Reiter zum entspannten Horseman nach und beschreiben die Einblicke, die er dabei in die Seelen der Pferde und ihrer Menschen bekommen hat.
A superbly illustrated instructional manual offering groundbreaking, step-by-step solutions for hundreds of horse behavior, health, and training problems.
At a young age Peggy Cummings noticed that many horses she rode and worked with were sadly inhibited--unable to express their innate curiosity, trust, and freedom of motion--and went about their work in a mechanical, stiff way. This inspired a lifelong search for real-world ways to achieve the "lightness" and "ease" promoted by top instructors and classical texts. Now, in this long-awaited book, Cummings describes the essentials of her specialized groundwork--the first half of her acclaimed Connected Riding program--along with over two dozen highly illustrated exercises to help horses and their handlers find a reciprocal "connection" on the ground before attempting to establish it from the more difficult position in the saddle. These exercises--done both standing still and in motion--drastically change the way you see and feel your horse, and radically improve how your horse moves, responds, and goes about his work.

Horse, Follow Closely
Author: Gawani Pony Boy
Publisher: i5 Publishing
The bible of North American Horsemanship, Horse, Follow Closely is GaWaNi Pony Boy’s signature title about the relationship training methods that are steeped in common sense and the age-old wisdom of his Native American ancestors. Of mixed blood Tsa-la-gi, GaWaNi Pony Boy was able to conceive his philosophy and compile the methods of relationship training while touring the United States with a Native American drum band and consulting the Tribal Elders from many different nations and backgrounds. The methods and beliefs of relationship training come directly from the first great horsemen of North America. “Horse and rider are one. Theirs is a relationship of trust, harmony, and respect born of a way of life that is all but lost.” The stunning full-color photographs by Gabrielle Boiselle capture Pony Boy’s serenity and unity with his close horse companions. The author’s simple eloquence forges a deep, profound relationship with his readers that few books ever hope to achieve. As Pony Boy writes in the introduction, “For many [the Native American horseman] represents the ultimate rider. The essence of a horseman, both his skill and intuition, goes beyond the hours he spends in the saddle….the folklore of every Native tribe are stories, tales, and beliefs to exemplify human’s relations to other animals.” The book begins with an analysis of how horses came to live with the Natives of North America and horses’ impact on Native life. The crux of relationship training, according to the author, is to understand “what it means to be a horse, react like a horse, and relate to other things like a horse….” Native Americans were able to create such strong relationship with horses in a short time because they understood that “a horse is a horse.” Learning to balance the relationship between horse and human is the missing link to becoming a masterful horseman or horsewoman. The book describes not only the techniques involved for relationship training but also the belief system and attitude that must be applied to all methods of horsemanship. In addition to presenting the methods and philosophy of relationship training, Horse, Follow Closely also includes many stories and legends of Native Americans and their horses, all of which teach the reader something new about himself and his relationship with his horse.
