"When I am with horses I have no ambition.... I have a dream."
Known as the co-founders of Cavalia and EQI, they have performed in front of more than 2 million spectators! They are exceptional equestrian artists and visionaries. Their horses are their inspiration and their teachers, they learn everyday from being with them.
Love and respect is the core of their relationship and philosophy. Therefore, when you see them on stage, you can only be touched by such authentic heart, connection and creativity.
Since childhood Frederic has understood and communicated with horses, showing a mutual respect and willingness to cooperate. After trick riding and Voltige, he has gradually drawn his own way of Liberty/freedom. An approach shared with the public through performances and workshops, which he gives along side Magali, all over the world.
Raised by a family of horsemen and breeders, Magali has ridden and competed in horse shows from a young age. She specialises in dressage high school and has ridden and competed to Grand Prix level. For over twenty years on the stage and around the world, she practices dressage, highlighting the importance of the horse's freedom and pleasure to participate.

Join us for two back to back clinics...
'Harmony' with Magali Delgado
'Liberty' with Frederic Pignon!
Magali's Harmony clinic will share with us her principles of riding horses without tension and stress - her lessons are about bringing out the best in you and your horse. Magali will work with horses and riders of all different levels, but her main focus will be to show the horse how to achieve a relaxed state of mind during all of the work, whether simply walking around the arena or performing canter pirouettes!
"If you give the horse the time it needs to develop, you will always have a horse that is happy and willing to do what you ask of it"
Frederic's Liberty clinic will take us on a journey in understanding how we need to think to create a happy, trusting and inspired horse.
Be captivated by the beauty and freedom horses display when introduced to the unique training skills of "two of the finest horsemen in the history of horsemanship"

Both clinics will run from 9.30am to 5.30pm each day with a break for lunch.
Each day will start with an introduction on training philosophy session from Frederic and Magali in the marquee, with coffee and pastries!
Frederic will then work with participants and their horses in his Liberty clinic, in individual sessions throughout the day and Magali will work with riders individually or in pairs.
Spectators can move freely between clinics, as they please, during each day over the weekend, to be able to learn from both trainers. Likewise, outside of their own sessions, riders are encouraged to watch as much as they can as part of their learning.
The venue is very open, so please bring clothing for all weathers, from sun-cream to raincoats! There is a large viewing marquee for spectators, should it rain.
Spectators, there is no need to bring your own chair as we have seating at the venue.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided all day, but please bring your own lunch and anything else you might need. Should you prefer to go out at lunchtime, the Three Horseshoes pub across the road serves good food, or there is an Asda superstore two miles away that has a range of hot and cold food options. Additionally, the nearby town of Marlow has a variety of shops, delis and supermarkets.
You are welcome to bring your dogs to the venue, but respectfully we ask that they remain in the car during the clinic and are kept on a lead during lunch and away from eating areas. This is because we have our own dogs that will be on site throughout the weekend.
You are welcome to camp onsite in your horsebox, or caravan, but please note that there is no hook up. Below we have comprised a short list of local hotel/B&B options and there are many more in the area: -
