We invite you to take some time to delve into the world of ForTheHorse and The Home of the School of Légèreté.

Our holistic, educational equine farm, in the heart of the Canadian Shuswap Highlands, is like no other!! 


The first School of Légèreté Teachers' Course in North America is now complete!!  The School of Légèreté at ForTheHorse had the final exam on the 10th and final clinic, in April 2014. 

The first Teachers' Course was comprised of students from both Canada and USA.

We were so very fortunate to have Mr. Karl himself teach several of the clinics before he decided to limit his long distance travel. 

This ground-breaking, once in a lifetime, first Teachers' Course has opened doors for légèreté across Canada and USA.  Thousands of equestrians and horses have been introduced to légèreté through the work and dedication of the ForTheHorse team, and we are grateful to have become a part of the history of the School of Légèreté!!
