The association "APPEL – Association pour la Promotion de l'Ecole de Légèreté" was established in March 2013 in France. The aim of the association is to spread the philosophy of Légèreté throughout the world and to secure the success of the school in the long term. By providing funding and volunteer expertise, APPEL supports projects and activities worldwide related to the Ecole de Légèreté.

Thanks to the support of APPEL, the Ecole de Légèreté has been able to present its work regularly at major horse fairs, such as BEA in Bern, Switzerland (2015–2017), Fieracavalli in Verona, Italy (2014–2017), HansePferd in Hamburg (2014–2017) and Equitana in Essen (2015), Germany, the Arena classical dressage fair in Sparreholm, Sweden (2016), and the Andalusian World Cup in Las Vegas, USA (2016).

Should you wish to support the work of Philippe Karl and the Ecole de Légèreté, especially through presentations to the general public, please join our community by becoming a member of our association APPEL. Your support is greatly appreciated.
