Linda Tellington-Jones Joins Headliners at Western States Horse Expo

The 9th annual Western States Horse Expo, June 8-10 at Cal Expo in Sacramento, California, has added world-renowned equine behaviorist and trainer Linda Tellington-Jones to its cast of extraordinary clinicians.

Tellington-Jones’s TTEAM and TTouch methods have influenced horsemen around the world for over 30 years, including Olympic competitors from 14 countries. Coupled with a classic knowledge of horses, Linda developed her system of influencing the horse’s body through specific touches by adapting a human method of body work to horses. In addition to TTouch, her work with horses includes specific groundwork exercises and the “Joy of Riding.”

Linda Tellington-Jones has been an innovator in the horse world since the 1960s. Her unique background with horses includes directing the Pacific Coast School of Horsemanship in California, a 9-month residential school for riding instructors and trainers with students from around the world. Her show career is wonderfully varied, including endurance, dressage, hunters, jumpers, steeplechase, competitive trail riding, combined training, and English and Western pleasure. In 1964 she set a record on a 100-mile endurance race that was unbroken for seven years. Linda often proudly wears one of her many Tevis buckles she earned on that world-famous 100 mile endurance ride, including the ones she won for placing in the Top Ten. Linda is the only person in the ride’s history of 53 years to ever complete the Tevis on a Hungarian horse, a stallion named Brado.

Linda’s contributions to equine behavior, health and communication are recognized and acclaimed around the world. Today there are Tellington Method certified practitioners in 26 countries. She has authored 13 books in 12 languages and has produced 19 videos of her work with animals.

The Western States Horse Expo, in addition to Linda Tellington-Jones and Pat and Linda Parelli, promises to provide an exceptional line-up of clinicians this year.

The Horse Expo schedule includes demonstrations for children, a two-day horse sale, Magnificent 7 stock horse competition with two of the four classes during the day on Friday with the final two classes Friday night, a Saturday evening extravaganza, combined driving competitions, more horse trailers and towing vehicles than anywhere else on earth, educational presentations, and shopping/shopping/shopping! This year promises to be the best ever!
