A Knight Amongst Horsemen

Written by Petra Webstein

Could there be possibly such a profound difference between horse people? What is it really that a knight applies to be with his horse?

If you are watching Klaus Ferdinand Hempfling, working with horses you quickly see and feel for yourself that there is something you can not quite put your finger on. It is intriguing, challenging but at the same time calling you forward to a place which most of us have only found in our dreams.

So really, what is it about this man with the name of Klaus Ferdinand Hempfling that truly sets him apart from the rest? Read the rest of this entry »

New YouTube Channel!

[youtube][/youtube]Hello Everyone!

I just created a Passion for Horses YouTube channel and can now start loading all my edited horse videos so that I can share them with you.

Today I have my first video ‘My Life With Horses’ which is a kind of ‘trailer’ if you will, of my horses and a few of the horses I am blessed to work with everyday.

As I have time I will be creating all kinds of Natural Horsemanship videos about everything from riding, training, trails, trailering, horseplay, horsecare etc.

So as a starter, enjoy the video above! It is a somewhat humorous look at the non-stop action that these horses bring to my life.

AUGUST- Long summer days to spend for our horses…

This month we don’t have any one particular theme. Instead, I would like to celebrate & discuss all the reasons we love our horses, what they mean to us and the things we love to do with them.

Today I’d like to start by sharing a few poems & quotes written by horsemen & women around the world that express a little of the magic that our horses bring to our lives…


Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride,
Friendship without envy,
Or beauty without vanity?
Here, where grace is served with muscle
And strength by gentleness confined
He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity.
There is nothing so powerful Read the rest of this entry »

Finding your feel

 By Christa Miramadi

*Note from Faye- I really enjoyed this article from Christa and thought I would share it with everyone. Enjoy!*

A Personal Connection …

Developing a feel is not something that happens overnight.  It’s not something that you can read about in a book and “get” and it’s not something that you can pay someone to find for you.  It’s a personal connection between you and the horse you’re riding and developing this feel takes patience, practice and dedication but in no way is it some impossible aspiration.  Anyone can develop a feel if they try.

FINDING SOFTNESS & BALANCE- Through Natural Horsemanship

By Christa Miremadi

Most of us who are pursuing a gentle, respectful way of being with our horses like to refer to our ways as soft.  We like to look at how we work with

Natural Horsemanship- Softness & Balance

 our horses as being balanced and gentle and we hope that others who watch us working with our horses will notice how soft and balanced we are too.

Horses are gentle, quiet creatures with big hearts and a bold spirit.  For centuries humans dominated, abused and used these animals against their will, relying on muscle and strength, ropes, chains and restraints in order to “break” their spirit and “bridle” their power and skills.  Using horses for transportation of goods, people, supplies, working cattle, sport and pleasure, hunting and war, horses served people and provided mankind with progress of all sorts. 

Somewhere along the way, a few cowboys realized that horses would likely be willing to do the same job, possibly with more heart, if they were given the ability to learn it in a gentler manner.  Read the rest of this entry »
