In our stable at Bärenbachtal we got the nice visit from Federico Padrón and Jan Braren. On the initiative of Katharina Braren, editor of the spanisch Dressage Magazin “Trofeo Doma Classica”, they came to talk to Fritz Stahlecker and did interviews, videos, fotos of our HSH-work. They want to introduce this method in Spain as an alternative to the traditional way of breaking in and riding young horses. We spent two very intensive days and are convinced that this could be the beginning of a very interesting and effectif cooperation for both sides. In a first step, articles in the magazine “Trofeo Doma Classica”, give an introduction to the philosophy and work of Fritz Stahlecker: The introduction (HSH in Spain part 1) followed by detailed description of the first steps on working in hand according to Fritz Stahlecker’s method (part 2, part 3, part 4). We are very happy to have met real horsemen who immediately understood the idea behind HSH and the aim we are heading for – together we stand up for a better life for our horses.
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!
