Dressage with Mind Body & Soul

A 21st-Century Approach to the Science and Spirituality of Riding adn Horse-and-Rider Well-Being
In the past 20 years the high-profile sport of dressage has been criticized for training methods developed and openly used by top riders, which have been proven to cause the horse physical pain and emotional distress. In her extensive travels overseas and around the world, renowned horse trainer and behaviorist Linda Tellington-Jones has noted the state of dressage horses in the barns she has visited, the shows she has attended, and the clinics she’s taught. In her opinion, a whole new way of approaching the sport is needed, in order to give dressage new life and those who participate in it new love for what they are doing.

Now Tellington-Jones shows us powerful new techniques for approaching the Classical Training Scale and using it not only for the betterment of your dressage horse’s performance, but also his overall well-being. With her usual brilliance and enthusiasm, Tellington-Jones provides the tools all of us need to ensure the horse relishes his role in the exploration of the art of dressage—just as much as we do. Alongside are countless case studies of the top horses, riders, and trainers Tellington-Jones has worked with over the course of her amazing career, and how the Tellington Method worked for them. This is surely the book that can help the tide change and restore the sport of dressage to its glory

Dressage has long been a means to accessing the greatest partnership on earth: that of human and horse. But today it is challenged and changed by the critique of both the competitive arena and the online global community. Riders and trainers are motivated for different reasons and exposed to new and powerful pressures. Technology urges us into a world of instant gratification and nurtures a faster-is-better mentality—and this is the round hole into which the square peg of dressage struggles to fit.

Linda Tellington-Jones has worked with top dressage competitors and horses from all over the world during the course of her amazing career, which now spans more than 40 years. Through the Tellington Method, Linda has provided tools riders and trainers can use to better a horse’s attention span and ability to learn; surmount behavioral and training challenges; improve flexibility, balance, and way-of-going; and recover from injury or illness.

In the pages of this very unique book, Linda combines her understanding of horses, her world famous TTouch bodywork, her proven groundwork techniques, and her innovative methods under saddle with exciting ideas specifically for the dressage rider and trainer. Her intriguing ways of looking at the Classical Training Scale, her tips for harnessing the power of intent, and the guiding principles in her Circle of Well-Being provide desperately needed keys to keeping dressage horses happy, healthy, and performing their best.

To demonstrate how the Tellington Method can be practically applied to the dressage horse, Linda shares more than 20 problem-solving stories, featuring the world-class riders, trainers, and horses with whom she has worked. In addition, she includes techniques to help riders improve their ability to focus, cultivate habits of observation and patience, and practice the arts of understanding and thankfulness with both their horse and other human beings.
Linda’s methods hold the promise of a new generation of dressage horses who love their work, thrive in it, and demonstrate soundness of mind and body. She dares to innovate while adhering to what time has tested and proven successful. Dressage with Mind, Body & Soul bears a message of true horsemanship certain to resonate, whatever level you ride and whatever language you speak, wherever you are in the equestrian world.
