Equine Stress Control Therapy Heals Trauma and Calms Fear in Horses

Introducing the New Harmony ESCT Pulser

December 14, 2006 -- Conifer, Colorado -- Harmony HorseWorks, a Colorado horse rescue run by volunteers, is introducing the new Harmony ESCT Pulser, a psychotherapeutic device producing gentle left/right tapping sensations that very effectively calm anxious and nervous horses to heal their fears. ESCT stands for Equine Stress Control Therapy, the world's first equine psychotherapy generally administered by simply using one's hands while working the fearful horse on the ground or under saddle. The Harmony ESCT Pulser uses two oval-shaped pulsing pads that substitute for hand tapping. The two pads are symmetrically attached to the horse's halter or bridle during use and are controlled via a small hand control unit that sets the intensity and speed and can be switched on/off by the rider while working the horse under saddle.

"ESCT interrupts the fear cycle with signals transmitted via the optic nerve or bony structure and moves the horse from an automatic startle reaction to a voluntary response in 3 to 5 thirty-minute sessions," says ESCT's inventor, Barbara Wright. ESCT is based on human bilateral brain integration protocols that, through bilateral eye movement or bilateral body tapping, gently reprocess the fearful memory by interrupting the fear cycle so a new positive memory quickly forms to replace the old fearful one. During ongoing fear, the left and right lobes of the brain do not communicate well and ESCT reintegrates the lobes via gentle neural reprocessing. This type of pulser has been in use successfully for human therapy for several years and now, for the first time, it is available for horses. ESCT has proven effective on over 150 horses and pets and was introduced during a clinical trial study on spooky horses conducted by Ms. Wright over 4 years ago. It is used at the Colorado rescue to heal spooky horses and ready them for adoption. Spookiness is the number one owner-reported horse problem and the primary cause for equine neglect.

"I've used the pulser on two very difficult horses that I just couldn't get through to using my own patient and gentle approach," says Frank Bell, natural horseman and international clinician based in Idaho. "In each case, the turnaround was nothing short of miraculous. Both horses made huge transformations into steady, reliable riding horses."

Barbara Wright, Chairman of Harmony HorseWorks, has obtained the exclusive rights to sell the pulser to the horse and pet markets. Ms. Wright has developed a complete ESCT protocol for horse therapy done by hand or with the new pulser. This information is available in a book on CD, The Book of Horse Healing Secrets. The pulser, instructions, CD book and CD PowerPoint slide presentation come in one package for $150 including shipping. All product sales support the horse rescue operation.
