Philosophy

 

The goal is to use more feelings in order to get a sense for how a horse would feel and think. This leads to a new perception of the sport and a new understanding of the relationship to the horse, thereby enabling the establishment of genuine communication. “I have particularly noticed the benefits of this during my work with handicapped riders and now also use the approach when teaching able-bodied riders.”
