About the Author
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. Klaus Ferdinand Hempfling now has a training center on the beautiful Danish island of Lyo, offering courses, coaching and seminars.

Hempfling is aimimg at the ultimate lightness, invisible aids, 'collection on loose reins', which to me, is the epitome of training and so rarely seen these days.
The photos are a joy to behold- Klaus-Ferdinand's seat is exemplary and the expression of the horses says it all- what a contrast to so many photos of dressage horses to be seen in magazines, winning at the highest levels.Thoroughly recommended.
Hempfling speaks pure and simple common sense, viewing human-behaviour from the horse perspective, to allow us to communicate with them.
The fine and subtle system of body-language is described well. Hempfling's methods require the absolute minimum of equipment, and he can't emphasise enough that this type of training doesn't use gadgets, but positive reinforcement and gentle, but always clear and firm, instruction.
Up until just recently, almost all horse training books and guides were anthropocentric and the horse has done his level best to understand us. It's time to redress this balance, and truly let the horses speak for themselves.
Anyone who is involved with horses and who wishes to improve their relationship with these wonderful creatures would do well to pick up this book and open up their minds to the possibilities laid out on its pages.
Lets hope that it's not quite so long before his other books are also translated.
