Learn these methods, which are based on classical riding principles, to promote comfort and athletic ability in horse and rider.  Riders relate they have more ease and lightness in their riding and that their horses are happier, more willing partners.  Centered riding helps riders achieve their own and their horses best potential, removing fear, pressure and uneccessary tension and helping riders understand how to use their bodies better. It applies to all kinds of horsemanship and any type of horse or rider. Entered Riding techniques have been used by riders, trainers and instructors of all levels from beginners and pleasure riders to Olympic competitors. Centered riding helps you become more aware of your body and its potential. You discouver an inner balance, serenity and control that allows for greater freedom, suppleness and coordination: your horse will respond with increased balance, poise and forward motion. You and your horse become one, enjoying open communication and ease of movement.  It can give you a new perspective on riding and other aspects of your life.




TTOUCH is  training approach that encourages optimal performance and well - being for both horse and rider.  TTOUCH is also used on all animals and people.

 Based on the understanding that behavior issues are often caused by pain, soreness, fear or tension in the body, TTEAM addresses these underlying issues through a combination of TTouch Body Work,  with specific TTEAM Ground Exercises.

TTouch Body Work

TTEAM practitioners use a light touch exploration to find areas in a horse’s body that indicate tension, fear of contact, soreness or discomfort. Specific touches and movements known as TTouch are then applied to the horse's body and can release muscle tension, ease discomfort, and improve posture which leads to better mobility and performance.

TTEAM Ground Exercises

Ground Exercises enable a horse to override habitual patterns of posture and movement and to learn without fear or force. Using a variety of obstacles including labyrinth, ground poles and plastic, TTEAM exercises in the “TTouch Confidence Course” results in improved self-control, focus, self-confidence, cooperation, balance and coordination. Moreover, many unique ways of leading a horse provide opportunities for both horse and rider to increase ability and coordination.

With TTEAM training, Horses often demonstrate marked improvement in athletic skills and increased willingness and ability to perform. Not only does the horse benefit, but also a deeper rapport grows between horse and rider because of better understanding and more effective communication.
