Harry Chaim Faibish
Harry Chaim Faibish studied classical dressage under Master Egon von Neindorff, Master Nuno Oliveira and Hans Riegler (ex head rider of the Spanish Riding School) and has worked in Europe and the USA at highly prestigious stud farms, training centres and competition yards. Whilst he has a vast experience of working with horses of different breeds and types in all stages of their development, his chief love is helping to rehabilitate horses who have been disadvantaged, mentally or physically.
A lifelong bond with horses, followed by a land mine accident and the resulting treatment he received to overcome severe damage to his own leg and hip together with his knowledge of classical dressage and the guidance he received from Hans Riegler and Masters Egon von Neindorff and Nuno Oliveira inspired Harry to specialise in treating injured, lame, difficult or badly trained horses and bring them back to useful work and health or at least improved maneuverability.
To train horses who are nearly perfect is easy but he believes horses with incorrect conformation and visible problems cans also be improved with suitable training. A horse must be relaxed with its rider and trust them just as the rider must trust the horse. Once you have the horse's confidence you can do anything.
The question is how you get inside the horse's mind - and many people do not have enough patience to reach this point. Signals should be clear, correct, gentle and given patiently so as to keep the horse calm. If not calm the horse will not give the trainer his full attention and his body will be stiff and tense so the work will not be nice and not look natural.
