Jan Snodgrass of The Excellent Horse based at LightHeart Farm in Marshall, Virginia has more than 35 years of effective, customized training experience. Using world-renowned trainer Linda Tellington-Jones’ proven TTouch® methods, Jan combines body work, ground exercises, and innovative work under saddle to resolve:
Lack of Balance
The behavior and training difficulties people experience with horses primarily come from fear, pain, fear of pain, poor communication, and lack of fun. Jan uses:
Horse- and user-friendly methods to eliminate fear
TTouch® body work to eliminate pain
Innovative training exercises to establish clear communication
Jan creates a strong rapport with each horse by establishing a solid foundation of trust. She trains horses in the ways that each of them learns most easily and never uses exhaustion or fear as training tools. She creates willingness by making the training process fun.
Jan’s advanced-level eventing, third-level dressage, more than 25 years of experience using Linda Tellington-Jones’ TTouch® and five years using Carolyn Resnick’s Liberty training combine to provide a diverse and well-rounded training foundation that achieves exceptional results.
Monthly training, private and group clinics, lessons, and demos are available to meet your horse’s specific needs and your budget.

Here is what one happy horse owner said about Jan's new program, A Better Topline:
"If you’re wondering whether your horses would benefit from Jan working with them, the answer is YES! A horse can only do so much when their bodies are stiff or uncomfortable... we never thought Rein would be sound again let alone jumping courses, but she’s hunting, jumping and able to be ridden hard on a regular basis without pain after the help she received."--TK
