Two Incredible Retreats


In a new land, the simplest of joys can be profound—and life takes on a new quality because of the energy in which we come together. Time stands still when we immerse ourselves in a world of sensory awareness, exploration, and the practice of skills that quiet the mind and open the heart to the non-verbal world of connection.

July 10-16 The Life We Share Retreat: Our first session opens us to the subtle journey of deep connection and co-creation in life. In this session, Frederic and Magali have invited us to an intimate gathering and celebration of Nomades, the newest Equine Spectacular. You will learn about the intricacies of horsemanship and experience the balance and beauty of nature and Provence. 

July 17-23 From Technique to Delight Retreat provides three areas of development; riding with ease and working in-hand with Magali’s talented stallions, co-creating at liberty with the incredible Frederic and his amazing herd, and personal development in the intuitive science of connection with Barbara and the Delgado Breed of horses. Everyone is welcome, no previous equine experience necessary. This program will take you beyond technique to absolute delight!



The Magic Of Provence & An Intimate Journey Into Equine Theater

Day 1: Arrival 4:00 pm

*Night of Celebration – Enjoy A VIP Experience Of The New Equine Spectacular: NOMADES! 

Day 2: A Journey Of Discovery as we learn the key to inspiration when working with horses.

We also have plenty of time at leisure to enjoy the beautiful villa, nearby towns, and pool!

Day 3: What Horses Have To Teach Us – The Heart Of Connection: Connection is an intimate experience. Today we will learn more about the subtleties of communication through trust and precision with Frederic, Magali, Barbara, and the horses. Includes time to enjoy the beautiful villa, nearby towns, and pool!

Day 4: Medieval Villages of Provence: You can’t experience Provence without a trip to the market in L’Isle sur la Sorgue. This small Provencal town sits on the edge of the Luberon and to the east of Avignon, and at least one scoop of lavender ice cream is a must! Then, tucked in a closed valley, we head to the village of Fontaine de Vaucluse, and the healing energy of Water from the largest spring in France – Includes a water ceremony and a short hike up the mountain to the source of mystery and Mother of the Water.

Day 5: Behind The Scenes Of Equine Theater: Enjoy a rare opportunity to go behind the scenes of Equine Theater and witness the training and co-creation of Nomades! You will feel like part of the production with this insider’s view of life with Frederic and Magali. This evening we will experience a different perspective of the Equestrian Spectacular: Nomades! Watching the show while knowing each horse’s personality takes on a depth that may bring joyful tears to your eyes.

Day 6: This morning is at leisure at our villa after a very late night of celebration, dinner, and Nomades’ VIP experience! Later in the afternoon, we will set off to the enchanted village of Roussillon, sparkling with Ochre color against a blue sky, where you can walk the ancient roads and discover secret hideaways and shops that delight the senses. It is one of the most beautiful medieval villages in France with spectacular countryside views for our final night dinner.
