After our last session, we left both Sara and Alan to carry on with the trust building. This is great as our main job is to teach staff so that they can use the Trust Technique confidently with their animal and future animals coming into the center.
Both Phyllis and Gwen are fantastic teachers. I know that this is a big process for everyone and to help these two un-trusting and wild ponies move to their new home is going to help Alan and Sara really understand the Trust Technique.
We returned to see how they were doing on Wednesday and it was lovely to see how they have progressed. Both the ponies are noticeably much more trusting. Now it is possible to touch them (albeit around the head)
This is a great step and we will be returning on Monday to help them with the next step forward!
Here is a mini clip taken on Wednesday:
