Legerete is French trainer Philippe Karl's philosophy of "lightness." Karl's philosophy is based on understanding the physical and mental conditions of the horse, the ease of the aids, and the horse's natural movement. He believes it is fundamental that the aids are taught clearly before the horse begins to do any gymnastic work, and he says the horse's neck must be completely flexible in order to extend and flex at the poll. An introduction to training on two tracks completes the first part of this schooling series.
