Born to horse-loving parents in the south of France, both Magali Delgado and Frédéric Pignon developed quite radical ideas about the treatment of horses, and when they eventually met and married, it was as if they had been made for one another. Horses became their passion and their family.
Magali and Frédéric were the founding stars of the original version of the hit "equine spectacular" Cavalia. With their troupe of astounding horses, they toured the United States and European capitals from 2003 to 2009, playing to more than two million spectators. In addition, they have worked with such leading figures as Corky Randall (trainer for the legendary film The Black Stallion), Don Manuel Vidrié Gómez of the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art, and renowned horse trainer and animal behaviorist Linda Tellington-Jones.
When not performing their liberty and dressage acts, Magali and Frédéric live in France on their family's breeding farm, raising horses in accordance with their principles (www.pignon-delgado.com).
