Although I have only learnt the first stage of the trust technique I must say it has had the most amazing effect on my horses and our relationship. I cant help feeling slightly ashamed that Ive not listened to or understood my animals completely and that theyve not been able to have complete trust in me although Ive loved them and theyve always been OK. Thanks to the Trust Technique I now feel a bond has been sealed, especially with one horse that was given to me with temperament problems. I understand her better, we share time in the present and she is not defensive anymore. She has let her barriers down, become more affectionate and, in turn, I trust her more too. I am so grateful, Bev.
