LORENZO: THE FLYING FRENCHMAN is reviewed in the October 2011 issue of DRESSAGE TODAY.

In the October 2011 issue of DRESSAGE TODAY, book reviewer Mary Daniels has this to say about the book LORENZO: THE FLYING FRENCHMAN

“I know a lot more Lorenzo lore after gobbling up sentence after sentence in this book, staring at the mesmerizing photos again and again, trying to figure it out. I’d even—given the opportunity—pass up Brad Pitt to meet Lorenzo. This is because he is an original, unlike anyone else on this planet, and I think what he does with horses shows us there is more we have yet to learn about horse training than there is in our present philosophy.”

We admit, Lorenzo is surrounded by a kind of mystique that no longer exists in the realm of Brad Pitt, his family (and now his horses!) You can’t help but wonder how he became who he is…and how horses ever figured into it. It may not have all the answers, but LORENZO: THE FLYING FRENCHMAN does offer a history of Lorenzo’s early development as a horseman, and allows readers an opportunity to track him from daring young man to the superstar stunt rider and liberty trainer we know today.

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.
