An introduction to the Alexander Technique for you and Tellington TTouch Training for you and your horse

Introduction to the Alexander Technique with TTouch for horses
Onetime session

In this course, we will look at how you can look after yourself in everyday life. You will learn aspects of the Alexander Technique for yourself, and some TTouch bodywork for horses that can be applied to other animals as well. 

Day 1 - 10am - 4pm
Introducing how the Alexander Technique can help you in your daily life. We will explore our own tension patterns and work with the horses to see how they also hold tension. I will show you aspects of the Alexander Technique that can help you help yourself overcome these habitual patterns that often cause discomfort and strain in daily life.

Day 2 - 10am - 4pm
Building on Day 1, you will be introduced to more ways of helping yourself to function with greater ease and with less strain in your daily life. Working with the horses and using careful observation of ourselves and the horses, we can see how the work helps them and us feel more calm and at ease.

You will be encouraged to create a journal of your experience over the weekend that you can continue in the future.


There will be plenty of time during the weekend for you to ask questions about how to apply your learning to your own situation.

The High House Centre is a fantastic location for getting away from it all and learning about yourself. The wonderful Seren Arabian horses are calm and intelligent and make the perfect partners to help you learn.

Tea/coffee/biscuits/cake/water provided, but please bring your own packed lunch for both days.


This course is open to people who have their own horses and those who don’t but are reasonably comfortable being around horses.

These day workshops combine Alexander Technique and TTouch with a sense of fun to create a memorable and invaluable event.

Flexibility, Coordination and Confidence for you and your horse

Onetime session

Flexibility, coordination and confidence for you and your horse.

This is a weekend course for horse owners and those who work with or ride horses. You will be able to immerse yourself in your exploration of yourself, the horses and the amazing location. Many riders suffer from back pain when riding or when looking after their horse around the yard. This course will give you an opportunity to explore how applying the Alexander Technique can help you look after yourself whilst riding and working with horses on the ground, as well as in your daily life. It includes an individual session for each participant on my saddle horse to help you find a deeper seat and independent legs in your riding. We will work with the resident horses in the barn and arena to put into practice what we have learnt for ourselves, whilst learning some Tellington TTouch Training for horses with the beautiful Seren Arabians at the High House Centre.  There will be plenty of time during the weekend for you to ask questions about how to apply your learning to your own situation.

The High House Centre is a fantastic location for getting away from it all and learning about yourself. The wonderful Seren Arabian horses are calm and intelligent and make the perfect partners to help you learn.

All Friends of the Alexander Technique, plus families and friends of friends are welcome to an open air picnic on Sunday the 9th of July 2017 from 1.00pm till late.

At about the age of 45, I began to experience severe pain in both of my knees. I was told I had damaged the cartilage, initially caused by the use of a kicking strap on a sailing dinghy, and made worse by many years of beagling, and to stop beagling or risk ending up in a wheelchair. A few years later a friend suggested the Alexander Technique. At first I was very sceptical, but had also reached the stage where I was ready to try virtually any means to solve the problem. A few weeks after my first lesson, I had gone out beagling, but only walking.
