Ive recently acquired a standard bred gelding named Neiko who was unfortunately neglected and mishandled. He went from a calm trail horse to a horse that spooks at anything, among other things. The woman who rescued him 3 yrs ago did a great job of restoring his physical health, but his mental/emotional health is still all twisted up. I spent my first morning with him using the Trust Technique with fantastic results...his barn mate Pro enjoyed the benefit as well. Neiko did not lay down, but he moved to stand by me, and took a standing nap. Pro was also dozing in his stall next door. Wonderful! Im so delighted to have found this technique!
