  • Theory Lecture 2

  • What is the 'motor' of the horse



Philippe Karl, former Ecuyer of the famous Cadre Noir in Saumur in France, is renowned for his razor-sharp analyses and outspoken criticism of modern dressage.

According to the official doctrine, it’s the hindquarters that, as the ‘motor’ of the horse determine its locomotion – but is this really true? Or is it the forehand that plays the decisive role? And which consequences would follow from such a predominance of the forehand for the training of the horse?

In this filmed theory lecture, the French riding master Philippe Karl assisted by biologist Dr. Tamina Pinent, analyses these fundamental questions.
