Everybody loves both Andretti & especially Alf, the beautiful chestnut gelding and he is just the nicest type of horse. Laura works hard to accomplish the tricky new moves in her new Kur. You learn how a rider and a musician collaborate, Cees Slings is of course world renowned especially for his role in developing Kurs for Anky. I especially liked the diplomatic fine line that Cees managed to walk between father and daughter.

TheHorseStudio.com copyrighted review: This is a thoroughly enjoyable and engaging DVD from Jenny Rolfe. On conclusion of viewing the DVD I was already calmer and in a much better place to work with my horses. Jenny showcases her four Iberian stallions who are a feast for the heart on their own. This classical trainer demonstrates how diligent and consistent training utilizing certain Tai Chi principles, exercises from Top 2 Toe for the rider working both from the ground and in the saddle, and the adoption of keen body awareness will sync the horse and rider.
