Classical Dressage Part 4

Training Progress "One year Later"

Philippe Karl Legerete -

The Philosophy of Ease Philippe Karl now presents his Ecole de Legerete organisation chart. His training philosophy is inspired by the most accomplished masters (la Gueriniere, Baucher, Beudant, L'Hotte etc.) and founded on an absolute respect of the horse. Basic knowledge of anatomy motion, balance and psychology enables the rider to get the best from any horse without using force or constraint systems (side reins running reins etc). The legerete is not only a pleasurable experience for horse and rider but also the kindest and most efficient way to achieve a real collection and an expressive horse both on the flat and over jumps. Sampaio (6year old Oldenburger stallion only ridden two years, breeder: Heike Blank-Jaegeler) and Quiela (8year old Luisitano stallion ridden for three years) have already been seen in the first three parts of this "Classical Dressage" series. Now one year later they both show how they have developed.

These DVD's will open new horizons within the actual dressage world by demonstrating how misjudged and misunderstood the most brillant ancient masters are at present.

Philippe Karl was a member of the famous "Cadre Noir" in France for thirteen years. His riding technique is a feast for the eyes. He is also well known worldwide as a riding instructor trainer and author. In clinics and courses he presents the knowledge and the aesthetics of the old advanced riders adapted to modern times.

Duration: Approximately 53 minutes.

Need help on Sizing?


Note: Please bear in mind that every horse is different and this table is a guide only. We have many different styles to suit all shapes and sizes. New Zealand & Euro sizes are measured from the top of the horse. (Withers to tail. C-D) UK, USA & Australian sizes are measured at the bottom of the horse. (From the centre of the chest to the rear. A-B)

How to Choose The Right Fit

The fit of your rug is very important to ensure the optimal comfort and ease of movement for your horse. Since horses of the same height at the wither come in a variety of shapes and sizes, it is useful to take careful measurements of your horse to choose the right size rug.

Using a soft tape measuring tape, measure from (A) t the centre point of the chest, across the point of the shoulder and to the point (B) the rear of the hind legs where you would like the rug to finish.

How do I know that I have the right fit

A well fitting rug will not move or rub your horse.


  • Place the rug forward and in front of the wither. The chest buckle should be fastened on the first or second hole, leaving a small gap. Further back than this the horse may need a larger size.
  • The neck line should sit well up on the neck clear of the shoulder with the shoulder gussets correctly positioned on the point of the shoulder.
  • The rug should finish at the top of the tail for most horses (the tail flap will then cover the rest)
  • Leg straps are looped through each other loose enough to prevent chaffing but not loose enough to hang any where near the horses hocks.
  • Leg strap clips should face inwards to the horse to reduce the chance of catching on fences or other hazards.
