At this moment, I think I'm going to switch trainers for a variety of reasons. But one of the trainers that I've got my eye on is very much a Philippe Karl proponent, and is one of those attending his north american clinics. I'm not very well-versed in the french classical riding either.
So far, I've seen this trainer teach others and the horses are happy, forward and free moving. But some things seem so odd. Like having their hands extremely high (from what I read, Karl does not like the bit to act on the bars, but rather the lips). But it seems to have results.
So, I'm curious as to what others here have seen regarding Philippe Karl's methods.
