The School of Lightness

The School of Lightness

We are very fortunate here at Wilderwood as we bring along Vivaldi and Desperado (Viv and Des) to be receiving assistance from instructor James Riedeman, one of only a handful of licensed instructors in the USA in the principles of the Ecole de Légèreté (trans. the “School of Lightness”).

Here is a video that features our instructor James (among others) participating in the Teachers’ Course for Ecole de Légèreté last fall in California. We are so lucky to have this opportunity to work with James and learn this beautiful way of developing a gentle, light, and lovely partnership with our horses.
