I've been doing EFT for a few months now and have been trying it out on myself, family and friends with success. The other day I decided to try it on my young horse Bobby. A couple of months ago, she went lame. Not knowing much about horses, I thought she was foundering, but when the farrier finally came, he told me she'd injured the frog in her hoof, which had now healed but she was extremely sensitive and didn't want anyone picking up her hoof and cleaning it out (I'd noticed that!). His opinion was that it could take several weeks at least before she would easily submit to me picking up her hoof. I decided to tap on her surrogately, and used the set up phrase

"Even though my hoof is sore, I deeply love and trust my human"

"Even though I'm afraid to let anyone touch my hoof, I deeply love and trust my human."

"Even though that sharp thing hurt my hoof, I deeply love and trust my human"

I then laid a hand on her hindquarter (her back left hoof was sensitive), and tapped for "sore hoof", "I'm afraid", "the sharp thing that hurt me", picturing in my mind all the while how she might have experienced it. When I picked her hoof up after that, she submitted as if there were no problem at all. She was okay the next day, but the day after she was a bit touchy again so I tapped again. Now she has no problem at all.

In a separate incidence, to stop her going wild and overeating on our 125 acre farm, we have in the last few days constructed a much smaller paddock for her. The fence is an electric fence. She happily let me lead her into the paddock the first day, but the second day (this morning) when I took her back into the paddock after yarding her during the night, she rolled her eyes in fear and balked. This time I used the set up phrase "Even though I'm afraid of that white tape, I deeply love and trust my human", then I tapped on her eyebrow, side of the eye and under the eye with the words "white tape". On the spur of the moment, I couldn't think of anywhere else to tap, but it didn't matter because she followed me into the electrified paddock without a concern in the world.
