In the october issue of “Horses for Life” (2008) the second part of the long interview with Fritz Stahlecker has just come out. The questions refer to the 2. part of the video “work in hand for young dressage horses” and complete in a certain way what could not be explained in detail in the video.

Licence for the HSH-Center-Curb-Bit
Since quite some years we try to get permission to use the HSH-Center-Curb-But during competitions. We need as many riders as possible who are willing to test the bit and to write us or to the FN a report on their experiences. An increasing number of riders confirm that their horses like the bit, they are much more relaxed during riding, that they horses keep their neck and head easily in the right position. This bit is horse friendly and we ask you to help and contribute that soon hopefully many horses may enjoy this much lighter mean of communication with their rider. If you are interested see and contact us. For the benefit of the horses!
Available in English: Practical Training Guide for the HSH-Method
Unfortunately the "bible" of HSH, "Das motivierte Dressurpferd", is still not available in English, but we can offer you the Practical Training Guide for the HSH-Method. Fritz Stahlecker wrote this manual in 2007/2008. With this much more concise and in comparison to the book revised manual he gives a sort of guide line how to proceed when practising HSH. He describes week by week which exercise would be recommandable and explains how to go on. Very helpful and encouraging for all those who work with this method on their own!
