Okay so I'm on an actual computer now and not my phone.
I'm starting to feel like Baucher is more heavily into philosophy rather than practical application, or explaining his methods for practical use.
That said, I can see the use in his methods. I just can't put together how exactly one would practice them effectively. He does say in the beginning of the book, that precise timing and feel is necessary (as with all training) and his methods are for those who are already accomplished horsemen. In short, he speaks above my head. the language doesn't help either. There is a lot of French remeners and ressemblers that I have to mentally denote to 'the bit thing' or 'the haunches thing'.
I have read up on Phillipe Karl, even though he is a bit of a laughing stock in the Dressage world. I can't understand why, though. His philosophy is totally in line with Dressage.
Does anyone have any more practical sources? I want to learn as much as I can about classical dressage, and the philosophy part is great, but I'd like to get my hands on some real practical material as well.
