PHILIPPE KARL & HIGH NOON : A French Master & His Hanoverian

Be inspired by the riding philosophy of “légèreté“. Get close up to the action in Part 1 of this highly instructive documentary film where the young Hanoverian gelding “High Noon” goes through his first two years of basic training with the renowned French riding master. Philippe Karl trains him on the lunge rein, in hand and in the saddle with respect, esteem and expertise. Enjoy their work together, from young horse to the first piaffe strides, based on trust.  Philippe Karl, former ecuyer with the famous Cadre Noir in Saumur, France, was inspired by the teachings of the old masters such as La Gueriniere, Baucher, Beudant and l'Hotte.  At the core of his philosophy is absolute respect for the horse.  He founded the "School of Legerete" which teaches a logical and practical way to systematically train horses without the use of force or aritifical aids.
