Library Journal Review

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.
