Sometimes, the bond between horses and people is best understood through demonstration; describing the communication that can exist between a horse and his partner with only words leaving something lacking.

And sometimes a true magician comes along, and there seems to be a new language that emerges between horse and man.  One such person is Klaus Hempling.

Klaus coined the term “magic lungeing,” and believes that the preparation of the horse before it’s ridden is very important. However, as you can see in the video, much more happens between Klaus and his horse than simply preparation.

Hopefully, through understanding horses more clearly, we can also come to better understand ourselves, so that we too may communicate as seamlessly as Klaus and his magnificent stallion.
