"For the horse and our relationship to evolve in a good way, we have to remain open. In my imagination, I see open doors so that we always feel that physically and mentally we can achieve anything we set our minds to. If we rest on the principles we have been taught or learned, the relationship with the horse will stay shuttered. Every day I try to make a fresh start. This is a new day for me and for this horse I am with. What will happen? If I do not take this approach—and there are plenty of people in the horse world who do not—I shall never really get through to this horse and learn about his true nature." Frédéric Pignon

“Frédéric, Magali and Paulette are unique teachers who share a common philosophy. They are as gentle and nurturing towards the people that come here to learn with them as they are with their horses. And they are just as genuine and generous with their time. The learning is effortless and exhilarating – all that is required of you is a readiness to open your eyes and your mind, to contemplate, absorb and enjoy, and feel the realisations and understandings sweep through you.” Jennifer

Friday Special Evening

This is a great opportunity to share in the vast knowledge of Magali Delgado & Frédéric Pignon on how to inspire horses to want to learn and engage with us. Frédéric and Magali will share with you their insights and stories about working with horses. They will do some digital presentations and then we will open up to the floor for questions. It will be a really lovely evening. They are great communicators and just about everything they say is profound.

"When I started to work with Templado I understood that he was very special. He was one of those horses who makes you understand that every horse is very unique. There is no rule. There are no mathematical ways to understand a horse. Templado was a unique personality. He was not like the hundreds of horses I worked with before, and he made me understand that when we work with a horse, we have to adapt ourselves and even adapt everything we’ve learned [before] to this new unique personality. He taught us a lot, but the way he opened my mind…about working with a new horse using all we know and trying to learn more. When you work with a horse, I think it’s important to realize that he could probably teach you much more than you already know." Frédéric Pignon

We encourage you to think about your own horsemanship and submit a question to be answered. We will go through all the questions and do our best to cover the topics raised. Please email your question to admin@ribbleton.com

2-Day Clinic

Riding in Harmony with Magali Delgado

Liberty & Groundwork with Frédéric Pignon

This is going to be an incredible weekend for us all!

Frédéric will take us on a journey in understanding how we need to think to create a happy, trusting and inspired horse for liberty work. We have only 6 lessons available with Frédéric. Each lesson will be directed by what Frédéric uncovers with the horse. It’s important in these lessons to let go of expectation, to open your mind and absorb what Frédéric will share with you about your horse.

Magali will share with you her principles of riding a horse without tension & stress. Magali’s lessons in riding are about bringing out the best in you & your horse and are suitable for all riding disciplines. There will be 2 people in each riding lesson and they will run for 1 hour. This is important to Magali as it allows you breathing space to try what she is asking you to do before she works with you again. I have had many lessons with Magali and this is a really great format. A lesson with Magali is one of the most wonderful experiences you will have with your horse. You can read her interview at this link: [click here]

Come as a spectator or bring your horse. All riding levels are welcomed. If you are planning to bring your horse, it is critical that your horse is used to going on outings and is old enough to handle this adventure. Please contact me if you are unsure.

Doors open at 8am. We expect to finish at 5pm. We will have caterers available on the day to purchase food and drinks. Video and photography is not permitted.

Riding in Harmony Lessons with Magali Delgado

Magali will share with you her principles in riding your horse without tension & stress in both mind and body. You will receive one lesson on Saturday and one lesson on Sunday. There will be two people in each riding lesson. This creates a much better learning environment as it allows you the time to explore the information that Magali is sharing with you.

Question: Magali did you continue to compete in Europe? Magali: "Yes, after one year of competition I was placed 3rd at Rouen, France and then I won the 2nd place at the France National Challenge competition. This same year I achieved 2nd place in the Grand Prix in Essen, Germany. The judges commented how wonderful it was to see a horse that appeared calm and unstressed after such a demanding a test. At Essen in 2004, the organiser asked me if I would do a liberty demonstration at the evening gala! Dao was able to perform all of the dressage movements without a saddle or bridle! I was very proud."
