The Ecole de Légèreté (School of Lightness) is based on an efficient, horse-friendly training concept by the French riding master Philippe Karl. Its central principle is absolute respect for the horse. Any use of force or coercive aids is strictly excluded.
The training plan of the Ecole de Légèreté is based on the insights of anatomy, locomotion, balance, psychology and ethology as well as on the knowledge of the old riding masters such as La Guérinière, Baucher, Oliveira and many more. The training plan is understandable, reliable, sustainable and applicable to all horse breeds and riding disciplines.
The trusting dialogue between rider and horse is at the heart of the Ecole de Légèreté. Minimising and refining the aids is a constant goal. In every phase of the training, lightness has top priority. The Ecole de Légèreté opens the way to the art of classical riding for every motivated rider, even with a “perfectly ordinary” horse!
