video can not be found, but form his website he seems alright, just another Natural horsemanship clinician with an English style riding background.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

no he doesn't really do 'natural horsemanship'. He doesn't want his way to be called a methode. :)

and sorry here are the videos!

Very cool guy. I am reading his book right now, What Horses Reveal. Basically sorts out horses in character groups and explains in depth of what they're like, what rider suits them best and how you would go about training that particular group. Very fun. :)

In riding, a horse's energy is like a river- guided by the banks but not stopped by them.

NH is not just carrots sticks. NH is used in all disciplines.

His way of teaching is very close to what is done to Baroque type horses and he isn't the only one that does it like that.

I have two of his books - Dancing with Horses and What Horses Reveal. I like some of his theories in Dancing with Horses, but What Horses Reveal comes off like palm reading to me.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

I bought the video Dancing w/ Horses the Art of Body Language and it SUCKED! $47.50 for NOTHING! I don't about the other videos/books, but the one I bought was dumb.

I have the Dancing with Horses video. I love his work. I don't consider him NH along the lines as Parelli or some of the others. I really like Hempfling. He's got a very good style and it's easy to learn. I haven't gotten his DVD's yet but that's on my list as I'd like to see how it's done on video rather than just reading about it.
