This first English-language edition of a European best seller shares Hempfling's unique horse training techniques, which are now catching the interest of North Americans. The author's approach combines his backgrounds in communications, theater, and dance with more traditional means. The result is an unusually harmonious relationship between horse and trainer, in which there is complete understanding and communication through body language. Hempfling's method has proven successful with all breeds of horses and makes the learning process fun for both horse and rider. Complemented by color photographs, this book is recommended for equine collections and for those interested in alternative approaches to horse training. Deborah Emerson, Rochester Regional Lib.

Dominance without punishment, collection without rein pressure these apparent contradictions are explained as master horseman Klaus Ferdinand Hempfling reveals his fascinating method of horse training. He compares his work to dancing, where two beings read one another¹s body language, then move together in harmony. Advising that even the slightest movement by either horse or human conveys powerful information, the author shows how to use body language effectively in communicating with the horse. He asserts that if good communication is established, a horse will retain all of its natural grace and elegance when ridden. Hempfling¹s methods are based on conventional classical horsemanship, but they are infused with refreshing holistic and spiritual principles. All are conveyed here in an accessible text and 400 color photos, offering readers a clear understanding of his work. Klaus Ferdinand Hempfling presents clinics and demonstrations throughout Europe, where thousands have embraced his methods. Residing in the mountains of Spain, he spends his time studying and training horses.See all Product Description

I've read this book recently and feel that I am still digesting the content. It is quite detailed (in a positive way) and Klaus is a very passionate man. Read morePublished on April 1 2009 by Cheryl L. Leavoy

This is an awesome book, but I had a hard time applying it. Maybe those with more experience can use it more. I don't think it's for beginners.Published on Nov. 12 2003 by Serina
