A Candid Interview & Exclusive Footage of Verdi and Odin at the Cadre Noir


Controversial Master Trainer Philippe Karl speaks openly about the competition scene and questions whether it has become a sport aimed more at fame and fortune that art and culture. He makes a case for the return of the cardinal rule of Dressage - that the horses nose must be on or in front of the vertical. This DVD also includes never before seen footage o his famous stallions Odin and Verdi performing at the Cadre Noir in France

Please note that this DVD is an Australian produced edition of the popular School of Legerete series.

From 1968 to 1971, he studies breeding, first at the Zootechnical Studies Centre (Centre Enseignement Zootechnique) in Rambouillet, then at the French national stud Haras National du Pin. He obtains his national riding instructor's certificate in 1971. From 1972 to 1979, he heads the riding department at the Centre Enseignement Zootechnique in Rambouillet, where he is in charge of various branches of professional training. From 1980 to 1985, he runs his own stables. During all these years, he is regularly competing in eventing and show jumping. In 1985, General Pierre Durand appoints him as a member of the French national riding school Ecole Nationale Equitation in Saumur, and he becomes an Ecuyer at the prestigious Cadre Noir.

For thirteen years, he takes part in all the gala shows of the Cadre Noir in France and all over Europe.
