The work of Pferde Verstehen is a holitic approach towards a happy friendship between horse and human. The following aspects will be combined:
- individual needs of horse and human
- physical and mental health of horse and human
- horse keeping conditions
- movement on the ground, free and leading
- carrying movement as in connected riding, if possible
The idea is to find a walkable path for both parties in a reasonable, harmonic and pleasant way. The horse is seen a counterpart, no longer as an opponent or as sports gear. We will let the horse be a horse, we will let the human show himself and be aware of his horse in a brand new way. A new basis of trust will be built together. A better and more fulfilling togetherness will grow from this. There will be no pressure, horse and human may show how far the want to go. The result is a cheerful and loving relationship with an intensity and lust for life that will no longer be comparable to the conventional idea of simply riding a horse.
Just as humans love riding, horses love being ridden, if they feel understood and heard in their fears and needs. A horse carries its human with pride if it agreed to do so. The quality of such a connection is what we always dreamed of. It is priceless to have your horse happily calling out for you because it is happy to see you and looking forward to your time together.
Pferde Verstehen’s philosophy is neither training, nor horsemanship or a tool to make your horse function well. Rather, it is a connecting bond between horse and human for a loving relationship.
