Our Story

Welcome to Xenora, home of the unique Dynamic Dressage Kinetics® (DDK®) riding concept. Traditional riding instructions deal either with the horse and its behaviour or with the rider, his or her posture and movements.

Based on scientific principles of energy in motion Dynamic Dressage Kinetics ® (DDK®) highlights the merging of horse and rider into one body of energy. Dynamic Dressage Kinetics® (DDK®) opposes the traditional idea of “no pain, no gain”. Instead, this exciting riding concept aims at creating and maintaining one flowing energy unit of horse and rider. It focuses their mental, sensory and physical capacities on synchronizing their natural bio-mechanical frequencies in motion. Based on wisdoms of traditional teachings like Tai Chi, Reiki or Qi-Gong as well as modern energy medicine Dynamic Dressage Kinetics® (DDK®) harmonizes the intentional and physical energies of horse and rider.

This establishes a new quality of mind-body-communication between –rider and horse- that refrains from dominance, force or duress.

A horse can present and develop itself only within the frame of its biomechanical possibilities. The rider has to respect and support these possibilities. The result is a successful and highly satisfying riding experience for both rider and horse. With more than twenty years of experience in riding, training and rehabilitating horses. Hans Hollenbach has developed Dynamic Dressage Kinetics® (DDK®) drawing on additional learning from outstanding horse experts like Philippe Karl, Dr. Gerd Heuschmann, Helmut Beck - Broichsitter a.o. Central to Dynamic Dressage Kinetics® (DDK®) is achieving the “Pegasus State” – “when horse and rider fly together effortlessly”.
