Bibi Degn describes how to establish a respectful relationship with one’s horse using the TTouch way developed by Linda Tellington-Jones. The touch was developed to create a safe and meaningful friendship for both the horse and the rider. Degn relates the information with the help of her children, Joran, an Arabian gelding, and Angie, the “guardian angel” of animals. Photographs by Horst Streitferdt clearly illustrate touches, use of equipment, and training procedures. Pages tell of many aspects of horsemanship before and after riding – greeting, leading, grooming, mounting (both bareback and with a saddle), learning to “read” a horse’s mood, and using some equipment (halters, ropes).
