James French did a series of introduction videos at The Centre on how to approach horses to build a trusting relationship. French's Trust Technique is based on the theory that depending the connection between humans and animals can transform the lives of both. It uses mindfulness and focus presence techniques as a basis for resolving problems for humans and pets or other animals.
Daily practice of the Trust Technique creates a shared peace of mind and reduces anxious over-thinking, one of the main causes for so-called “behavioural problems”. This dynamic approach does not objectify animals, but rather recognises all animals as sentient beings and transcends an unhealthy approach of dominance or control. It promotes trusted cooperation, which leads to healing and communication that manifests in shared well-being
