The Trust Technique has helped me with both my aging dog, and young spirited, spooky horse. Sadie (the dog) has been very anxious and needy recently as her age is slowing her down. I have been using The Trust Technique with her and she settles down and closes her tired eyes . It has helped me with my horse who is quite high strung. I use it before I tack her up, and when riding when she gets anxious too!. I will for sure be signing up for a retreat when they are available. Many thanks from Holly, Sadie and Beth.
