Dancing with Horses

Dancing with Horses

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."

Klaus Ferdinand Hempfling, a passionate horse lover with a professional background in communications, theatre and dance, has shaken up the international horse world with his thought-provoking theories. The basis of his work is consideration for the horse's psyche, communication via a body language that is understood by the horse, and interaction with these powerful, beautiful, dignified creatures in accordance with nature. The development of the rider's presence and an orientation to holistic principles is integral to this work.

This charismatic author's methods of communicating with horses have been embraced by thousands of participants and onlookers at his clinics and demonstrations, and Dancing with Horses, his first book, has been an overwhelming success throughout Europe and North America. This English language edition has been much acclaimed. Hempfling now has a training center on the beautiful Danish island of Lyo, offering courses, coaching and seminars.
