What is The Trust Technique?
Every horse owner I know wants a deeper connection with their beloved horse. It turns out that every being is seeking connection. Would you believe me if I told you that your horse wants the very same; a deeper connection with you? A life attraction has bought you together, it is no coincidence. It’s the most beautiful relationship, one could even say ‘friendship’. You are together to help each other in some way.
The Trust Technique® is a method of reducing the thinking levels of both human and horse, which promotes trust, connection, confidence, and enhanced communication between them both. It uses mindfulness and focused presence techniques as a basis for resolving problems and tapping into a higher level of communication. The technique is simple to learn and incredibly impactful.
The results are simply astonishing. I have applied it to all the rescue horses at the farm that I live at, as well as many horses as a Trust Technique Practitioner. I have seen the most amazing emotional, physical, and mental healing to these horses, as well as behavioural changes and a softening of their eyes, as any stored tension melts away. The technique has a unique way of showing the horse that it is truly regarded, felt, seen, heard, and valued. This triggers a release and a rise of inner peace, where deep healing occurs.
The real magic is that this is a two-way healing. By learning to be in a low thinking state, which the horse emulates, the owners often have deep healing themselves. It’s a shared moment, where horse and human have helped each other. Nothing increases a bond more than that. A friend helping a friend. A deeply spiritual experience.
