Glad I found your blog - very interesting & lots of good info. I applaud you for taking on abusive training methods. Even though I do not have an Icelandic, I do have gaited horses: Rocky Mtn., Tennessee Walker, Spotted Saddle Horses, etc. & am intrigued by the body wrap for Icelandics. The Paso people use a similar type of training with cruppers & breeches, & this seems to make sense to me for ALL gaited breeds. If you know of any other links for the wrap, please let me know as I'd like to start using it on my young ones beginning their training - altho no doubt any horse at any age could benefit from it.

Do you mean the ace bandage wrapped in a figure 8 around the horse's front and back?

If so, that is a TTEAM exercise, not specific to Icelandic Horses.

You can find more info at:

If you have any questions, let us know. You can also find Robyn Hood, sister of Linda Tellington-Jones on the IceHorses discussion list, if you want to ask any specific questions:

Thanks, Judy, for the info. Yes, the ace bandage wrap was what I was referring to. I am new to this blogging thing & kind of got lost in all the different iceryder posts - some are knols, some blogs, some 'connections'. You have LOTS of good info. Unfortunately, there are abusive 'training' practices used in all breeds, so I applaud you for your passion on using natural training methods.
