If you haven’t seen this truly fantastic video of Frederic Pignon, co-author of the best-selling book GALLOP TO FREEDOM with his wife and former Cavalia costar Magali Delgado, you’re about to be moved, astounded, and utterly in love…

Those of us who were lucky enough to see the hit show Cavalia when it toured the world with Frederic and Magali–and their troupe of gorgeous horses–will remember the visually stunning and emotionally charged experience for the rest of our life. Now, Frederic and Magali are based again at their home in France where they are raising their young son, and continuing to train horses with the deft touch and inherent magic we all recognized on the international stage.

Take 15 minutes to treat yourself to this clip from a 2010 European show starring Frederic and his Friesians Pheobus and Paulus, and the Lusitano Guizo. It is so fun to see these horses still performing together…and some of the stories Frederic and Magali share in their book GALLOP TO FREEDOM still seem to ring true. Watch Guizo when the three stallions circle Frederic in the “wheel” and when the Friesians sit down…Frederic intentionally puts Guizo between the Friesian brothers to keep them from pestering each other…and Guizo prefers not to sit! It has always been thus…

Enjoy–and if you haven’t yet, check out GALLOP TO FREEDOM, available at the TSB bookstore, where shipping in the US is always FREE.

TSB author and stunt-riding phenomenon Lorenzo stars in this year's Equitana.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of people visit Essen, Germany, where EQUITANA, one of the horse world’s premier events and trade fairs is held. With breed pavilions, demonstrations, speakers, and shopping-galore spread over a week-long period–this year, from March 12 through the 20–Equitana is every equestrian’s “happy place.”

An integral part of the Equitana festival, is the HOP TOP Show–an event that is considered an absolute “must see” by many equine enthusiasts. There is no other horse “show” on earth quite like it–each year it features a host of stars from all over Europe who perform amazing acts with their horses to the accompaniment of dramatic lighting, breathtaking backdrops, and rousing music.

TSB author and world-famous liberty trainer Frederic Pignon also stars in Equitana 2011.

This year’s much-anticipated HOP TOP Show “Fabuloso” features two of TSB’s best-selling authors: Frederic Pignon and Lorenzo. Pignon, known for his work alongside his wife Magali Delgado in the hit show Cavalia, is a liberty-work master. He and Delgado share their story and horse training philosophy in the gorgeously illustrated book GALLOP TO FREEDOM, on sale all this month at the TSB bookstore.

We’ve all seen the YouTube clip of Lorenzo “roman riding” his team of eight gray horses along the beach and through the ocean. You can read the story of this impressive stunt-riding phenomenon–his background, education, and how he trains his horses to do what they do together–in LORENZO: THE FLYING FRENCHMAN, also on sale all this month at the TSB bookstore.

We’re recognizing other TSB authors who are presenting at Equitana with 15% off their books and DVDs, plus FREE SHIPPING. Check out our March specials HERE.
