Since 1998, I have been interpreting and translating clinics, lectures, books, DVDs and articles of French riding master Philippe Karl. I am also editing his website.
Philippe Karl was a member of the renowned Cadre Noir, the French elite riding school in Saumur, for 13 years. His riding philosophy of Légèreté (French for lightness) stands in stark opposition to the rough dressage methods that prevail nowadays almost everywhere in the riding scene.
The Ecole de Légèreté is founded on the absolute respect of the horse. The philosophy of Légèreté therefore excludes any use of force or coercive artificial aids. Thanks to its understandable and reliable training plan that fully respects the nature of the horse, it allows any seriously motivated rider access to High School equitation, even with a perfectly ordinary horse.
