TTEAM and TTOUCH are key parts of my success in endurance riding, and I look forward to sharing it
with you and your horse!
Linda's highly effective and revolutionary approach to working with animals has brought her worldwide recognition.
She is the founder and president of Tellington TTouch® Training with certified TTouch practitioners for horses, companion animals and humans in 27 countries. Her pioneering work has its roots in a philosophy that sees all beings -- humans and animals alike -- as reflections of a Divine Whole. The Tellington Method was first created four decades ago as a system of animal training, healing and communication that allows people to relate to animals in a deeper, more compassionate way -- a way that furthers inter-species connection and honors the body, mind and spirit of both animals and their people. She is the author of 17 books in 13 languages.
In 2007 she was awarded an honorary PhD from Wisdom University and appointed as Chair for the Wisdom University Institute of Interspecies Connections.

Mustang Lady is a wild horse Naomi adopted in Homedale, Idaho from BLM's Wild Horse & Burro adoption program. She had been trampled in the roundup, was lame, and aborted a foal, and Naomi felt sorry for her. Mustang Lady became a National Champion in the sport of Endurance Riding, and is in the American Endurance Riding Conference Hall of Fame. Two Breyer models have been made of Mustang Lady, honoring her achievements.
