Book Review: Getting in TTouch by Linda Tellington-Jones.

This weekend Biasini and I are taking part in a Tellington clinic with Linda Tellington. I will post about it next week!

We all want to understand our horses better don’t we?  We can’t get them to talk directly to us but we can learn a lot by observing them. This book by Linda Tellington-Jones is an entertaining way to understand your horse’s personality.  The main focus is on observing the physical structure of the head. This is not just casual observation but observing the details; what is the shape of the eyes, the nostrils, the muzzle, the ears, the jowl, the nose.  Then when you have observed all of this can you put together a total picture of what it indicates about your horse’s personality.

    I love this. I am sure you know plenty about Bisani’s personality but it will be fascinating. Looking at those pictures, I am guessing the small “pig eye” look means that the horse definitely not happy about something!

      Horses’ eyes are so interesting. The small pig eye is a real set back to looking attractive. I think some horses are just born that way and it cannot be helped even if they are happy about things. But you are right in that sometimes even horses with bigger eyes can look skeptical !

        I like the idea of a horse looking skeptical! I am used to my cat looking that way. Cats are meant to have expressionless faces but Bingo can convey a whole range of emotions (usually in regard to my pereceived failures as a human whose job it is to feed him and open to door for him) they range from disappointment, sadness, dismissiveness, and all round ennui. My other cat just meows at me.

          My son thinks that the reason cats are so poplar on Social Media is their expressions. There faces can be highly amusing. Horses can be harder to read but their eyes are very expressive.
