Hello and Welcome

Welcome to Légèreté USA California.

Légèreté USA was created for the preservation of an equestrian art in the French tradition.  Our mission is to share and promote, the cultural exchange of the unique and intangible equestrian philosophy of the Ecole de Légèreté.

Légèreté, translated as “lightness” from the French, is a comprehensive, systematic method of riding and training horses that includes an entire philosophy of horsemanship based upon a profound respect for the horse.  It brings together the finest, most effective training methods for achieving the goal of “lightness,” as well as the traditions, culture and philosophy of classical horsemanship developed in France over hundreds of years.  It eschews any force or artificial, coercive methods of training.
