Experience horse education and body language
on the highest level - communication in its finest form
with Hans Juergen Neuhauser.

 

Horse education by using real body language deepest trust and highest mutual respect

According to the classical education scale – rhythm & suppleness – the goal is a well balanced, relaxed and peaceful horse that can present its body – even with a rider – in an absolutely free posture. Horse and rider thereby achieve a level of trust that goes far beyond the norm.

The emphasis of free training with the horse is on promoting its physiological well-being. The horse should be brought up to its movement potential in every aspect. That means bending, absolutely free posture, balance in anatomically correct movements and fostering strength and endurance.  

We want to make the horses beautiful. It's all about bringing the horses into their own potential. That, within their framework, they move anatomically correctly and gracefully. And in our eyes, a horse moves gracefully when it moves in an absolutely free posture or self carriage and when it can move in a coordinated way.


What is the secret of the language of the horse?

Of course, one must have a love of horses and dealing with one another with respect. But also the ability to articulate clearly and simply with one’s body.

The horse is a sensitive gregarious animal, which instinctively flees from danger. It reacts to any slight movement or change in body posture of its handler. It reacts immediately to the slightest non-verbal signal – in the herd as well as in the company of humans.

In order for the horse to understand the human, you need to move purposefully, that you need to be able to speak real body language. That means that just only the purely information the horse really needs must be communicated so clearly and exactly that the horse does not have to think about it.

Body language is a language indeed. But it is only a language when more than one life form understands it. We do not teach horses to do things. We do not condition them. We learn for ourselves to articulate so simply and clearly that the horses understand what they should do.

Every horse understands body language. The main problem is, that merely because I move does not mean that I am speaking body language. Self awareness and well balanced self carriage while maintaining absolutely natural posture are prerequisites for fine, clear non-verbal communication.

The basic principle is the same whether working from the ground or from the saddle. It has to do with not disturbing the horse while it is doing what it should do. It has to do with passing on pure information in its clearest and finest form – non-verbally and without imposed dominance.

It has to do with articulating so clearly and understandably using the own body that a horse understands what to do and how to do it. And thereby we train horses and bring them up to their potential.

We don't tell the horse what not to do, but what it should do. It has to do with the dialog, not a monolog.

 
If I should start to correct my own mistakes on the horse
then the end of any communication has been reached

 
It has to do with trust and respect but mutual
It takes two to say "yes" but only one to say "no"


We want to make the horses beautiful
That, within their framework, they move anatomically correctly and gracefully.

That they are powerful and healthy

During ground exercises with the unfettered horse – whether it is “Circle Exercises” or “Gymnastisizing Guidance Exercises” – any variety of movement commands at whatever intensity desired can be freely combined to achieve a maximal and physiologically reasonable incentive for the horse to exercise.  Thereby, human and horse achieve a relationship of trust that goes far beyond the norm. And the horse is challenged both mentally and physically in equal measure.
 

The classical education scale - rhythm and suppleness

HJN-Riding is for the fine art of equitation and the fine art of riding it is a philosophy, a philosophy of life.

For us, real art of equitation means to tell the horse – without manipulation and the finest of aids – what it should please do and how it should do it. It is about not to disrupt the horse while it is doing what it should. Any aid that is a little too much – and it takes very little – is already a disturbance. And with every disturbance, I make it harder for the horse to understand me and to do what I would like it to do. 

To help the horse understanding what it should do so that, even when being ridden, it carries itself and bends in its natural free posture, carrying out the lessons beautifully and also keeps healthy.

The method applies equally to all riding styles. Regardless of whether riding English, Spanish, Western or any other style, it is based on communication. Riding is always based on balance, communication and trust. And based on this it is relatively easy to specialize in a particular riding style.

HJN-Riding is all about more. It is about trust, but not trust alone. It is about communication, but not exclusively. It is about a holistic, harmonious system of physiologically founded horse education based on communication.

HJN meets Lipica

Communication in its purest form

 

Experience horse education and body language on the highest level - communication in its finest form - horse education in a new dimension.

Hans-Juergen Neuhauser presents with three Lipizzan horses - a mare, a gelding and a stallion – the way horse education really works using pure body language. Without imposed dominance, characterized by the deepest trust and the highest mutual respect, training-physiologically substantiated, from extreme clearness and the highest precision.

Experience a live video of a training demonstration at the Slovene state stud farm as Hans-Juergen Neuhauser successfully motivates three Lipizzans to proudly present themselves in all their breathtaking beauty to a critical public and under the stern gaze of the stud farm management.

Detailed and properly focused on the point - a huge range of information.

See for yourself - to the point and in detail, how real body language works with the horse and how horses can be optimally trained physiologically for coordination of movement and  strength and stamina from the floor – using only non-verbal communication.

According to the classical education scale – rhythm & suppleness – the goal is always a well balanced, relaxed and peaceful horse that can present its body – even with a rider – in an absolutely free posture. Related to the horse the development of the natural movement potential takes center stage. The objective is the development of the horse’s movement capability in a anatomically and physiologically correct way.

Horse and rider thereby achieve a sound level of trust that goes far beyond the norm – a profound bond between man and horse based on clearness, trust and highest mutual respect.

In essence it is about working with the horse without imposed dominance and conditioning only using real body language for the communication between man and horse. A holistic and in itself consistent education of horse and rider in its clearest, finest and choicest form.

The fine art of pure communication between horse and men all horses understand – immediately wherever they are around the world.
