Building a Life Together--You and Your Horse: Nurture a Relationship with Patience, Trust and Intuition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Like perhaps no other couple in this world, Magali Delgado and Frédéric Pignon have strived to live their lives in perfect partnership with their horses. It was this essence—in combination with their genuine talent, unquestionable integrity, and immense appeal—that captured the hearts of audiences around the globe when they and their horses toured as part of the original cast of Cavalia from 2003 to 2009.

Now, in the eagerly awaited follow-up to their bestselling book Gallop to Freedom, Magali and Frédéric welcome us to their home in France. There, the stable doors are thrown open, and we are invited to share all that they’ve discovered in both the hands-on and more delicate, intangible areas of horsemanship.

The remarkable result is a book that offers a series of practical and ethical guideposts to help us build an honest, open, happy life with horses. Magali and Frédéric’s words, their lessons, and hundreds of emotionally charged photographs by internationally renowned photographer Gabriele Boiselle provide deliciously enlightening glimpses into the kind of relationships we all dream of having with our horses, and with each other.

As we journey into the pastures, the practice ring, and down the trails with Magali and Frédéric, the veil is lifted, and we can indeed begin to see how what they have alongside and on board a horse can be ours. The secrets are here for the taking. The rest is up to us.

Synopsis:

“For the horse and our relationship with him to evolve in a good way, we must entertain a sense almost of abandon, so that we are always ready to be surprised and moved, and ready to question all our previous experience in order to find the true way forward.”—Frédéric Pignon

Synopsis:

Magali Delgado and Frédéric Pignon captured the hearts of audiences around the globe when they toured with their troupe of astounding horses in the debut version of the equestrian spectacular Cavalia from 2003 to 2009. The relationships the married performers formed with their horses and then generously shared with the world displayed genuine talent, unquestionable integrity, and immense appeal that reached beyond the general public. Many serious equestrians were left asking how it is they do what they do, and how can others achieve the level of trust apparent between this incredible couple and their horses.

Magali and Frédéric explained many of their beliefs and shared many of their secrets in their first book on horse training philosophy, the bestselling Gallop to Freedom. Now, in this eagerly awaited follow-up, Magali and Frédéric focus on the evolution of the relationship one can build with a horse. Along with beautiful photographs taken by renowned equestrian photographer Gabrielle Boiselle, they open themselves completely to the reader, sharing insights and ideas about horses and humans.

By turns frank and instructional, poignant and tender, this delight of provides another level of inspiration for every horseperson.
