GALLOP TO FREEDOM

Experience the Joy of Training Horses with the Founders of Cavalia, Frederic Pignon & Magali Delgado.

When Cavalia, the amazing equestrian-themed artistic performance under the "big-top" tent, first took North America by storm, few people knew who Frederic Pignon and Magali Delgado were. But the world was soon abuzz with talk of the magical spectacle these two remarkable individuals  provided their audience - none could walk away unaffected by the powerful connection they demonstrated with their cast of beautiful horses. Now in this remarkable book, Pignon - a specialist in liberty and groundwork - and Delgado - a dressage rider at the Grand Prix level - combine efforts and share their secrets of the breathtaking relationships with horses they have cultivated over the course of their lives.

In a delightful narrative, readers discover how to read horse behavior and better understand their equine partners; how to always provide a giving and open friendship that "welcomes" the horse while ensuring he still gets the leadership he craves and deserves; and how to "play with" and enjoy horses to the utmost, whether at liberty or performing the most difficult of movements in a competitive environment. The book includes gorgeous color photographs of the couple's horses, many of whom appeared in the show that first made them famous, as well as Pignon's spectacular equine illustrations.

About Frederic and Magali.

Both Frederic Pignon and Magali Delgado grew up in France with horse in their lives  from a young age. Pignon spent a short time studying fine arts, trained as an acrobat and did stunt riding, but realized he needed to learn the fundamentals of classical dressage. So he took lessons the stable where Delgado happened to be teaching. The two decided to join forces and never looked back. The now famous multimedia equestrian spectacle Cavalia toured through North America for three years and continues today under the couple's artistic direction. When they are not on the road, they reside in the Provence region of France.
