Peer Claßen

Peer didn´t get in contact with horses until his mid twenties. Right from the beginning he was more interested in horses themselves than in riding. After only a short time he stumbled upon the Parelli System through some friends and was immediately hooked by the more natural approach. Not long after that, people started asking him for help with their horses and thus his teaching career took its humble beginnings.

In 2008 Jenny and Peer met at a Horse-musical by German Parelli Instructor Silke Vallentin. They fell in love and then also started teaching together in 2009. Since then they have developed their own style of horsemanship with the help of many great horsemen and -women. It puts the horse first and focuses on the process rather than on results. This is well reflected in their current teaching motto: „We give horses a voice“.

Jenny and Peer have written four books on topics such as groundwork, riding and horse-personalities. Their „Übungsbuch Natural Horsemanship '' (Natural Horsemanship exercises book) has been one of the best-selling German horse-books in recent years. 

To this day Jenny and Peer keep looking for new perspectives to achieve a better understanding of human-horse relationships and improving their teaching skills.
