Equine Books

Lorenzo—The Flying Frenchman

The Amazing Man and His Remarkable Horses

By Luisina Dessange; Photos by Robin Hasta Luego

 

May 2011 issue

 

     Trafalgar Square Books has recently published Lorenzo—The Flying Frenchman by Luisina Dessagne. People across the globe have seen photos and footage of the awe-inspiring horse trainer and stunt rider Roman riding his teams of four, six and eight gray horses along beaches, through waves, and over jumps.

     The book follows Lorenzo through his childhood as he grew up in a horse-crazy family in France ’s renowed Carmargue region to his international status as a performer. The book includes the story of Lorenzo’s remarkable Lusitano mares, how he trains them in liberty dressage, and how he travels with them.

     Every mare reacts perfectly when her name is called, meaning that she has to go either faster or more slowly. “After a certain time they are so well adapted to one another,” says Lorenzo, “that the turn becomes an almost automatic procedure because one mare knows she has to go faster when I give the other the command to slow down. I don’t need to tell each individual horse what they have to do. It is enough to give one of the horses a command, then the others work things out to a certain extent amongst themselves.”

            The book is 144 pages, contains 173 color photos, and is $34.95. To order, contact: Trafalgar Square Books, PO Box 257 , Howe Hill Rd., North Pomfret , VT , 05053 ; 800-423-4525. www.horseandriderbooks.com.
