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.

As one of the first major projects, APPEL organised, with the kind support of Pferdia TV, the participation of the Ecole de Légèreté at the HansePferd 2014 horse exhibition in Hamburg, Germany. Under the personal direction of Philippe Karl, the school presented the many facets of its training concept. The presentations were very well received – the visitors very clearly showed their appreciation and support through their overwhelming applause and interest in the work of Philippe Karl, the Ecole de Légèreté and the association APPEL.

Since then, the Ecole de Légèreté has been presenting its work regularly at horse exhibitions, thanks to the support of the association APPEL: for example at Fieracavalli in Verona, Italy, in November 2014, at Equitana in Essen, Germany, in March 2015 and at BEA in Bern, Switzerland, in April 2015.
