Klaus Ferdinand Hempfling was born in Germany in 1957. After completing a degree in telecommunication technology, he took the time to deepen his understanding of life by becoming a teacher, freelance artist, theatrical director and traveler. After having spent several years in the Spanish Pyrenees mountains, he became a full time lecturer at the School of Art and Design in Dortmund, Germany. During this period he pursued a detail study of mythology and was intrigued with that most significant symbol of our culture - the horse. At the age of 29 he returned to the Pyrenees, this time on a quest to search for the real horses - the wild ones. Here he began a study of the horse in his natural environment that would reshape not only Klaus Ferdinand Hempfling, but also a part of the horse world.
He has shaken up the international horse world with his thought provoking theories. The basis of his work is consideration of the horse’s psyche, communication via a body language that is understood by the horse and interaction with these powerfull, beautiful, dignified creatures in accordance with nature. The development of the rider’s presence and an orientation to holistic principles is integral to this work.
Klaus Ferdinand Hempfling’s methods of communicating with horses have been embraced by thousands of participants and onlookers at his clinics and demonstrations.
