Coming Soon to Horse and Rider Books.com and a book store near you: Trafalgar Books’ Gallop to Freedom, by Frédéric Pignon and Magali Delgado, the founding stars of Cavalia.
Hollywood meets the publishing world in this video trailer for Gallop to Freedom. Pictured are Frédéric and Magali on the beach at Paradise Cove in Malibu, California, with Magali’s Lusitano stallion Dao; the couple’s wedding day in France on horseback (Magali’s dress was designed by Jiki, who also designed Princess Caroline of Monaco’s wedding dress); a shot taken by USDF gold medalist Linda Alexander Walton, who caught Magali aboard her stunning buckskin stallion Mandarin in a tiny patch of grass behind the Big Top, right before the equestrian spectacle Cavalia left for Europe.
I would like to invite you on September 7th at 1:30 p.m to visit the Dobert booth, representing Albion Saddlemakers, at SPOGA 2009 Cologne. Together with Klaus Balkenhol, filmmaker Roland Blum will present his new book, Klaus Balkenhol: Success With Sympathetic Hands.
Beginning in 2005, Roland Blum made dozens of trips over hundreds of hours to observe and film Klaus Balkenhol in the saddle and on the ground with a variety of different riders and horses. Nothing was ever set up for the camera. These observations gave birth to five films with seven hours of footage. In the book, the reader builds his or her own inner film aided by photographer Jacques Toffi’s fabulous pictures. Klaus Balkenhol says in this book how much the Tellington TTouch Method has helped his horses! If you’re in Cologne, drop by and visit with Roland Blum, and pick up a copy of this book.
