Riders of any standard, with any type of horse, can arrange to have lessons according to Philippe Karl's philosophy by contacting your nearest licensed teacher.
What is a licensed teacher?
To gain the title of licensed teacher of the School of Légèreté, a student (who must already be an experienced and dedicated riding teacher) must complete the three-year basic training course and pass a rigorous final exam.
Each successful student receives a certificate that authorises them to officially teach this riding philosophy in the name of Philippe Karl. As this training concept is legally protected by patent against plagiarism, distortions or arbitrary, unauthorised use, no one may refer to the School of Légèreté or the lessons of Philippe Karl without having received the corresponding certificate. NB: the certificate may be withdrawn on grounds of violations of the ethical principles of the Ecole de Légèreté (see “Twisted Truths of Modern Dressage”).
Sometimes there are people who make reference to Philippe Karl's teaching in their advertising but who have not passed his exam and may not even have had much, if any, direct contact with him. Please make sure to always check the appropriate qualifications!
