Possible TTeam Clinic at OEW, May 16-19 – reply ASAP if interested!

March 29th, 2015

Are you interested in attending at TTeam Clinic at OEW in May?

I am debating about hosting a TTeam clinic in May. It is so close I need to figure out if we can come up with enough people – we need 10 minimum. There will be auditing opportunities if we can get enough to fill the clinic.

The clinic would be Saturday, Sunday and Monday May 16, 17, 18. Attendees can come just Saturday and Sunday (2 days ) or all three days.

The clinic would be taught by Marcy Baer and would qualify for your practionership,  if you are going to be one. She is an excellent TTeam teacher I am told. (See more info about Marcy Baer below.)

Cost for all 3 days is $400. Two day is less but they have not given me the cost for that yet.

It is so last minute (my fault). We need to know ASAP if you or anyone you know would be interested. Again – we need 10 minimum.

Contact Marie ASAP at: mariehorse@aol.com if you are interested.

I do need to know in the next couple of days.
Thanks
Marie


 

About Marcy Baer: Marcy Baer grew up near Buffalo, New York and fell in love with horses during her first ride at the age of seven. She now claims 40 years of horse experience, practicing TTeam (Tellington-Jones Equine Awareness Method) for 20 of those years. Her experience reaches the depth and breadth of the horse world, including all disciplines, breeds, sizes from performance sport horses to beloved backyard pets. Marcy is currently co-owner of Briar Hill Farm located on a beautiful hillside in Central Vermont. There they raise and train Fjords and the endangered English Dales Ponies.
20 years ago, Marcy, saw a demonstration given by TTouch Practitioner Edie Jane Eaton. She observed Edie Jane performing tail work at the same time describing the relaxed look on the horses’ face. Impressed at her ability to be at the back of horse and observe his facial expression, Marcy returned the next day for a clinic.
During the next several days Marcy worked with a juvenile delinquent pony named Mulligan. Mulligan is a golf term for a second shot, perhaps that day both handler and pony got their second shot. Instead of forceful corrections, pulling, pushing, and harsh tones, Marcy and Mulligan were shown new tools allowing for respectful, soft, clear communication, resulting in a quiet, relaxed, thinking pony.
This type of training suited Marcy’s calm personality. She immediately began to focus on acquiring her TTeam certification. While teaching students, Marcy’s goal is to help people become more mindful of interacting with horses. Students are given various tools allowing them to achieve a clear, soft, respectful and productive communication with their horse.
“In TTeam we try to understand and acknowledge situations from the point of view of the horse,” explains Marcy. The Tellington Method is comprised of four components: (from the Tellington TTouch website)
·       Gentle body work called Tellington TTouch comprised of circular touches, lifts, and slides
·       Movement exercises in “The Playground for Higher Learning”
·       Specific harnesses and other equipment
·       Intention with the realization that you can “Change Your Mind & Change Your Animal”
