Ecole de Légèreté

The Ecole de Légèreté of Master Horseman Philippe Karl is orientated towards the gauges of the great champions like Xenophon, La Guérinière and Baucher. It gives a coherent and clearly structured training plan, which responds to the nature and biomechanics of the horse.

With dedication, joy and great commitment I teach horses and riders the general principles of the Ecole de Légèreté in combination with the precepts of Natural Horsemanship.



The Ecole de Légèreté is a training system where the respect for the horse is of paramount importance. With this in mind, the knowledge about the horse and its training shall allow a more and more subtle and harmonious communication by means of which the horse can understand the rider’s signals as a help in the true sense of the meaning.

Due to my education and continuous further training at Monsieur Philippe Karl, I am enabled to support horses and riders in such a way that both will feel pleasure in riding and achieve learning successes. My students will learn to train their horses versatilely, so that the horses will remain healthy and powerful up to old age.
