by Philippe Karl
One of the most outspoken critics of the modern dressage world reveals some disturbing facts about the physical, anatomical, and mental effects through official dressage guidelines as issued by the German Horse Society (FN) on horses. By comparing these with philosophies of masters of classical riding such as La Gueriniere and Baucher, he shows possible solutions to the challenging situation of modern competitive dressage. After describing the effects of modern dressage, breeding, and business, the author suggests a classical alternative - the philosophy of “legerity” (lightness). Monsieur Philippe Karl was an Ecuyer at the Cadre Noir in Saumur for 13 years.
