The School of Légèreté

In 2004, Philippe Karl founded the School of Légèreté in order to pass on his philosophy of Légèreté to committed and qualified riding teachers. During this three-year training, you will learn all the basics of this riding philosophy and how to teach it to your students. After having passed the final exam, you will receive a license that authorizes you to teach the way of Légèreté in the name of Philippe Karl.

As this training concept is legally protected by patent against plagiarism, distortions or arbitrary, unauthorized use, no one may refer to the School of Légèreté or the teaching of Philippe Karl without having received the corresponding license.

Please note that Philippe Karl offers no more other clinics beside this teachers' course. For lessons in his riding philosophy, please contact one of the licensed instructors of the School of Légèreté. You can also attend both the three-year teachers' course and the advanced training courses for licensed teachers as a listener. In addition, there is the possibility to stay with Philippe Karl in France for one year as a trainee.

You will find all the important information on the School of Légèreté on the following pages (see menu bar on the left).
