Tellington Touch

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

There is a Tellington TTouch book for neurological deficits including EPM.  I have used these procedures on another EPM’er.  While I can’t tell you emphatically that they made the remaining deficits go away, I do think that the exercises helped.  The exercises DID help me to more fully understand the extent of the horse’s deficits.  They were more extensive than I knew; the horse had learned to compensate.  The exercises help to combat the boredom of rehab during the first weeks or months when you are only ground working the horse.

I will be using the TTouch exercises on Fudge in the coming weeks, and will post some photographs.  You can find the TTouch booklet here:
