Always interesting to me, is the riding that comes out of the Cadre Noir, and this is no exception.
The segments that show riding really highlight the kind of power and explosiveness that becomes available when collection is achieved.
I remember very early on in my dressage schooling, an instructor telling me that most riders who say they want to achieve collection with their horses do not really understand what comes with collection. As though the riders are imagining their horses become more docile and easier to sit the movements. In reality collection can give you energy you don’t know how to channel without the proper training.
And of course any video of the Cadre Noir, by pure association, reminds me of my fondness of Philippe Karl‘s work.
