TBT University FAQ's

What will I learn in TBT University?

TBT University's goal is to empower horse people to align horses, while enabling them to discover the primary cause of WHY there is a misalignment in the first place.

Through online videos, in-person horse seminars, assessments and case reports, students discover how to align every aspect of the horse.

Students also learn primary cause analysis so they can help the true, underlying cause of the symptoms.

I heard the BioKinetic Technique is "energy work"?  What is that?

TBT (Tucker BioKinetic Technique) falls under the "energy work" umbrella.  However, it does not mean using a lot of physical energy.  Nor does it mean you push your energy into the horse.

TBT works with the horse's biomechanical and neurophysical regulators to coax the system back to normal baseline.

It is easy on both the horse and the practitioner's body.  While difficult to explain, horse owners aren't concerned about 'what it is' once they see 'what it does'.  TBT results are fantastic.  :)

 

What's the difference between a module and a seminar?

TBT University has five modules.  Three of the modules have hands-on seminars where you learn the Tucker BioKinetic Technique on live horses.

 

How long does it take to finish TBT University?

There are no time constraints with TBT university.  You can take as long as you like to finish.  Some people prefer to do only Module I, which teaches the Body Checkups and basic horse assessments.

Others stop after Module II, which teaches skeletal alignment.  Yes, after module II you will be able to fully align the horse's skeleton.  After completing the Module II Case Reports and required PCAs, you'll earn the title of Skeletal Alignment Specialist.

If you choose to continue with TBT University, you'll learn advanced alignment techniques.  Six months practice is required between Modules II and IV.  Another six months practice is required between Modules IV and V.  

So if you're in a rush, you can finish TBT U in about one year (depending on course availability).  We recommend you take all the time you need to master each level.

 

Do I have to know anatomy to join TBT University?

No anatomical experience is required.  It's helpful to know the basics, such as where are the hock and stifle.  However as long as you're willing to learn basic anatomy, that's all you need.   

Dr. Tucker does not use scientific jargon unless absolutely necessary.  So it's not difficult to follow along in the Modules.

 

I see where to purchase Modules, but how do I get a seminar spot?

When you purchase Module II, IV, or V, the purchase price includes the seminar.  The Modules also include additional content and sometimes additional products. 

Immediately after purchase, you'll receive an email.  The email will ask you to contact support@wheredoesmyhorsehurt.com to specify which seminar you would like to attend.  We do our best to get back to you within two to five business days.

Do you have tuition payment plans?

We do have a limited number of payment plans.  Application and setup for payment plans is $50usd (non-refundable).  The payment plans have monthly payments; must be completed 45 days before seminars; and are billed with approximately 10% interest.  Refunds are similar to "terms and conditions", however no refunds on interest portion of payments.  Please email support@wheredoesmyhorsehurt.com to apply.

Seminar Travel Details

LA Area Seminars:

  • Venue: Seminars are held at a few different stables.  All are located in the Sunland/Sylmar general area.  This is northeast of Los Angeles city.
  • Airports: Burbank airport (BUR) is closest to the venue locations.  Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) may be more economical.   Keep in mind that during peak travel times, it will take over 2 hours to drive from LAX to venue area.
  • Getting around: Because the venues are not in the metropolitan area, there are no bus or subways that go out to the venue.  Therefore renting a car is a good idea.  Another option is taking Uber/Lyft.
