Yes and the DVD is fascinating.
I have to say I take my hat off to Karl for keeping his cool when Hess tells him that teaching "tricks" like Spanish Walk have no merit or that it is okay to use his "system" for pleasure and trail riders but there is no place for it in the FEI!!!
As Karl says, when art becomes a competition which leads to a billion dollar industry, of course the true art is lost along the way.
I would not imagine for one minute that Hess would agree with anything Karl would say as it would then mean that he is admitting that the FEI is wrong.....good heavens that would rock the boat!!!!!!!!! :funny:
It is very interesting to see Karl give a lesson and Hess and then to have them comment of each other's rider/horse combination.
