Dancing with Horsesby Klaus Ferdinand. Hempfling
Synopses & Reviews
Influence without punishment, collection without rein pressure—these apparent contradictions are explained as renowned horseman Klaus Ferdinand Hempfling shows his fascinating method of communication and teaching. In a world that knows only goals, where only winners are important, our attention is directed to the journey itself, a journey which can be marked by constant excitement and experience if we learn to appreciate it fully, moment by moment. The natural laws governing horses living in the wild are integrated into a progressive program using precisely defined body language that works for all types and breeds of horses. The physical and mental health of the horse remains of the utmost importance through all phases of the work. All those interested in developing truly harmonious relationships with horses should consider the remarkable work and teachings of Klaus Ferdinand Hempfling. The author's DVD, Dancing with Horses: The Art of Body Language, is also available.
For master horse trainer Klaus Ferdinand Hempfling, work with horses is comparable to dancing. The primary obligation of riding, he explains, is to maintain the horse's own natural, powerful, and elegant movement under saddle. Improper training compromises the horse's naturally joyful steps with confusing commands; a horse will move with extraordinary grace if only the request is effectively communicated. In this DVD, Hempfling teaches us the language of horses. Advising that even the slightest movement conveys powerful information, Hempfling shows how to use body language to communicate. He makes clear that when the trainer uses language the horse can understand, the horse's movement "will always be beautiful, from the first lesson on."
Charismatic European trainer Hempfling shares his unique method of training horses from the ground using psychology and body language.
