Thoughts on "The Path of The Horse" DvD and Book?

Has anyone read the book/watched the DVD?
Was it informative and helpful, or just flash 'Look what I can do' type stuff?
Here is the trailer.

Entertaining yes. Helpful? Not really, but that's just my personal opinion.

It's much the same as the haters thread. Lots of talk but little understanding.

Presenting different trainers who are all doing the same thing as though they are doing different things, and not identifying the ones who ARE different or examining how approaches work.

Ah good to know, I had an inkling that was going to be the case.

Thanks. :)

What is the 'meatiest' of the Klaus Ferdinand Hempfling collection (DvD or book), in your opinion?

I think you would be disappointed with the DVDs. Neither are designed to standalone, and many clips are on YouTube if you want to see motion.

The books however are excellent if controversial in places, with a strong ethical and philosophical bent too. If two people read the books, one might see it as wishy washy whereas the other might be blown away with thought and information overload.

All three English translations are worth reading. The latest book (horse seeks) is the most comprehensive, however given that leading is such a large part of the initial foundation, the first book (dancing) is still essential. So ideally I would buy both of those but probably start with the new one first perhaps. The second book, what horses reveal is a very personal choice. You might love it or hate it, and certainly many people would dismiss it as voodoo so I'd avoid for now.

Thanks Doe! I am open minded, but practical. I like to take away a little bit from every training method I look at, to be honest.

Thanks again. :)
I will pick up the books, likely all 3, and avoid the DvDs for now.

I also was a bit disappointed with 'The Path' dvd....for me, the best part of it is under the Special Features section....3 mins with Klaus. I'd just about say the dvd is worth it for those 3 minutes, but I know it would not hit everyone that way.

I think What Horses Reveal is out of print now and I don't understand why. I treasure my $20. Copy of it for sure although when I first went through it, much was lost on me. Now it, like pretty much everything Klaus writes, blows me away. JMO
