Circus Knie – elephant training

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

The training of the elephants and horses in the Circus Knie are open for the public and can be watched every morning. On special sundays the training is accompanied by an expert who explains to the visitor what the trainer is doing and why he is doing it with the animals. So you get a better impression how dressage is working. And some of the knowledge even can be applied for the pets at home  ;-)

Eine fantanstiche Idee! Scheinbar muss man nicht mit jemandem vom Zirkus befreundet sein um hinter die Kulissen sehen zu können! Like

Yes, it really is, Diane. And how you can read here in my calculation in the first comment, it's not really tragical when you are tread on by one of them ;-)
