The hand-saddle-hand Methode (HSH) of Fritz Stahlecker Part 1: Basics
Horses are like children, their ability to learn is greater in the first years of life. If horses are carefully and gently trained in-hand the first years of their life, their qualities will be fostered well and perfect results can be achieved later on.

With his exceptional hand-saddle-hand-method (HSH), Fritz Stahlecker shows how to train movements up to advanced dressage exercises with young, only three-year-old horses - gently, without any stress and considering important sport psychological aspects. If the horse is backed at the age of four, the rider can start on an already advanced horse that knows the exercises and that has already developped the necessary muscles to carry the rider without any problems. He continues to train collection and cadence in-hand later on - this is of great advantage for the body and the soul of the horse.

Riding without a strong influence of the hand - is what every rider should strive for. The well padded schooling bridle of Fritz Stahlecker was especially designed for the basic in-hand training. The young horse learns basic exercises without the rider's weight, without any bit. His mind gets challenged, yet there will be no resistance which has the positive result of no tension or wrong movements. The horse will be ready for high performance training. All those who prefer aesthetics and creativity rather than force and strength when training dressage horses will love this film.

Author Notes: Fritz Stahlecker, a textile engineer, born in 1925, lives near the Swabian Alb in Germany. He has worked with horses, often difficult horses, since he was a child and has trained young horses from the beginning to the most difficult dressage movements. He is an inventor of spinning machines (several hundreds of patents) and used to deal with complex correlations. His knowledge taken from various sources of riding literature as well as his long experience of horse schooling made him come to practice and refine a new method of training the very young horse. Influenced by the riding culture in France and Spain especially by the French concept, this passionate amateur, who is highly respected among riders - has developed a specific and unusual method: the hand-saddle-hand-method. With his method which is based on recent knowledge in the field of modern equine psychology Stahlecker has trained several horses. The most successful was the stallion Weyden, member of the dressage equipe of Germany who under his rider Sven Rothenberger won the silver medal at the Olympic Games 1996 in Atlanta in 1996 and was winner of the bronze medal in the single dressage competition. Many riders nowadays practice this method and the results are impressive and convincing. The now retired Fritz Stahlecker dedicates his life to promote riding according to the principle and methods of schooling horses without force. He writes articles about the development of riding today, about scoring attitutes at competitions, questions concerning riding theory and he fights against schooling methods that are too demanding, physically and mentally, on the horse not yet adult.
