Part 4: Training Progress one year later
Philippe Karl now presents his Ecole de Lgrete organisation chart. His training philosophy is inspired by the most accomplished masters la Gueriniere, Baucher, Beudant, L'Hotte and founded on an absolute respect of the horse. Basic knowledge of anatomy, motion, balance and psychology enables the rider to get the best from any horse without using force or constraint systems (side reins, running reins etc).
The Lgrete is not only a pleasurable experience for horse and rider but also the kindest and most efficient way to achieve a real collection and an expressive horse both on the flat and over jumps. Sampaio (6 year old Oldenburger stallion only ridden for 2 years) and Quiela (7 year old Luisitano stallion ridden for 3 years), have already been seen in the first 3 parts of this Classical Dressage series. Now, one year later they both show how they have developed.
These films will open new horizons within the actual dressage world by demonstrating how misjudged and misunderstood the most brilliant ancient masters are at present. Philippe Karl was a member of the famous Cadre Noir in France for 13 years. His riding technique is a feast for the eyes. He is also well known worldwide as a riding instructor, trainer and author. In clinics and courses, he presents the knowledge and the aesthetics of the old advanced riders, adapted to modern times.
