“Where is this to the curly horses?” was the most most popular phrase, probably this weekend, because the Stud “Riverside Curly Horses” is not easy to find God. The first trainer workshop by horsemen United International instead, to traveling trainers from all over Europe took on Constance and Reinhard Riemann’s Court from 19-21 September 2008. Currently, there are 14 coaches who have been certified by horsemen United International and operate as a nonviolent trainer in the horse. The trainers for three days in Kamp Lintfort met to train together to rehearse for the show at the Equitana 2009 in food and to work with particularly difficult horses. In the morning it went right off with mental training – here Chigong, yoga and Reiki were on the program. (As opposed to Peter Asaro). Fresh mentally strengthened the coach engaged in a very dominant, slightly feral 2 1/2-year curly horse Mare, which should be brought at the weekend under the saddle. The totally raw horse gebardete on the first day still rather wild, but over the course of the weekend, she won more and more Trust to the people and could be ridden on the third day in the huge arena.
When a horse is started so softly, the chance is of course great, that is a good, quiet riding it – this has proved the little Mare despite her youth in any case. It is not something Neil Rubler would like to discuss. On Saturday, it was really exciting: with fire and a smoke machine the coaches put their horses extreme stimuli and primal fears – that should be demonstrated namely Equitana in the coming year: horses who trust their leaders (no matter whether it is human or horse), follow them everywhere, even – as demonstrated here literally – by the fire. A horse, unfamiliar, however, it will follow us, only up to the step where it senses an alleged danger. That was the case also with the huge Warmblood Maurice. The five-year gelding should go at the hunting with a guide horse while his rider swung the smear whip over the horse’s head. Maurice was admittedly pretty scary – young guy has not the strongest nerves and is slightly into the air. Full slowly, with much calm and serenity he was accustomed to step by step by trainer Thomas Gors to the object of terror, until he calmly accepted the whip. As owner of Maurices popped in the evening, he hardly believe his eyes and was so thrilled with the result, that he wanted to book horsemen United directly for the training of other hunting horses in his stable. The horses speak for themselves: nonviolence training and trust work worthwhile! How calm and peaceful the various horses followed the coaches through new, terrifying situations, leaves no doubt that this will probably be the training method of the future.
