Availability: Out of stock

  • Use of lateral work to increase balance, suppleness and mobility.

  • Jumping on the lunge and under saddle as a gymnastic exercise.

  • Introduction of the double bridle.



In volume 2 of the Classical Dressage DVD series, The School of Gymnastics, Philippe Karl demonstrates how through combined lateral work, shoulder-in, counter shoulder-in, travers and renvers, the balance, suppleness and mobility of the horse are trained and established, resulting in a straight horse or a 'saddle horse'. Philippe Karl also believes that jumping on the lunge and under the rider increases the horses gymnastic ability and is part of the basic training of a horse, along with flying changes in the canter, which every horse can learn if prepared and trained correctly.

He also introduces the double bridle as an important aid for advanced gymnastic exercises. His training methods are firmly rooted in the old school of classical riding to produce a modern classical dressage horse.

Chapters include:
  • Canter Riding with a Double Bridle
  • Combined Lateral Work
  • Show jumping
  • Flying Canter Changes
Phillipe Karl was a member of the famous "Cadre Noir" in France for 13 years. His riding technique is a feast for the eyes. He is also well-known worldwide as a riding instructor, trainer and author.
