The Whole Horse Podcast | Episode 46 | TTouch explained with Robyn Hood and Sinead McCann

When you’re a horse geek, it doesn’t get much more cool than this! For this episode I was joined by Robyn Hood and Sinead McCann of the Tellington Touch Method. We got into the misconceptions around this work, and how TTouch can be successfully applied to everything with horses, including starting young horses,  re-starting horses who need a loving trauma-releasing approach to find their trust and confidence, and resetting the nervous system, including balance and proprioception. It was such a pleasure to be able to learn from these two incredible and dedicated women. Enjoy!

Robyn Hood, who also happens to be Linda Tellington-Jones sister, has worked with Linda since 1965. She teaches training workshops, seminars and clinics all over North America, Australia and Europe. Robyn has been an integral part of developing the teaching program. In addition to running the Tellington Training Canada office, she also serves as the editor of TTEAM Connections Newsletter, which she has done since 1982. Robyn, her husband Phil Pretty and their two children live in Vernon, BC where they import and breed Icelandic horses. Their farm is home to about 130 Icelandic horses as well as two dogs, several cats, turtles and a parrot. Learn more about Robyn and TTouch at https://ttouch.ca/
