Philippe Karl, master of equitation and advocate of â€œlÃ©gÃ¨retÃ©â€œ (lightness) is a world renowned rider, trainer, and classical instructor. In his clinics he sensitively teaches the basics of classic equitation. This DVD series allows you to watch Philippe Karl work with his pupils, all of whom are licensed and future instructors of his School of LÃ©gÃ¨retÃ©. He teaches average riders on a variety of horsesâ€”from appealing cart horses to eager Haflingers to noble equine competitors. Karl expressively adapts his teaching to the individual training standard of each horse-and-rider combination.
In both Part 1 and Part 2, all areas important to the systematic training of the horse are developed. This includes:
- Bending work
- Work in-hand
- The development of stretching into self-carriage under saddle
- Lateral movements up to the preparation and development of piaffe and passage
Because of the array of teaching situations and the diversity of different horse-and-rider combinations, every rider, regardless of ability or experience, can easily understand these DVDs and find valuable solutions for their riding.
