Mr. Karl developed the School of Légèreté to provide a consistent method for teaching riding. Only for professionals, the School offers a comprehensive riding instructor training program that starts with The Basic Training Course and continues with the Advanced Course. The Basic Training Course stretches over 3+ years and is taught by Légèreté Master Instructors hand picked by Philippe Karl. Instruction is provided 3 times a year in 4-day clinics. The last, or 10th, clinic is the final 4-part exam.
The School only accepts into its program those with an established professional base, even if only part-time.
Only 8 students are scheduled per course clinic. Each student or 'Course Rider' is given private and group instruction in the course’s clinics. This allows each Course Rider to progress at his or her own pace and level. The course also gives time for Course Riders to develop and demonstrate competence and educates students and auditors in classical methodology. Some of these components are:
The result is a standard of riding instruction that can be sustained in a riding school program.
Most important, it also sustains the horse, giving him or her the best protection from breaking down. Légèreté is applicable to most disciplines and most horses at whatever stage of development or age. Confused or mistreated horses, inexperienced to highly competent riders—all benefit from this innovative method that thousands are adopting around the world.
Successful students of the School receive a certificate as “Riding Instructor of The School of Légèreté,” which allows them officially to teach this riding philosophy in the name of Philippe Karl.
As this training concept is legally protected by patent against plagiarism, distortions or arbitrary, and unauthorized use, no one may claim to teach Légèreté, represent the School of Légèreté or lay claim to the lessons of Philippe Karl without having received certification.
It takes more than one book or clinic to entirely grasp this new concept and why the method works. That's why we're here to guide you. We encourage you to immerse yourself in Légèreté. For those who do, it's life-changing. It's the answer many of us have been searching for, for a long time, for our horses and our life.
