About the Author
Nuno Oliveira began his riding career with maestro Jonquin Gonzales de Miranda, Master of the Horse to the King of Portugal. In the 1940s he opened his own riding school and soon became an international name in the world of classical equitation. In the 1950s and 1960s he gave exhibitions in Geneva, Brussels, Paris and London, followed by clinics in Saumur, Belgium, Holland, Italy, Australia and the USA. His pupils include the most talented dressage riders, officers of the Cadre Noir, and riders of the Portuguese School. Nuno Oliveira died in 1989.

It was amazing to think this man had such a will with the nature of horses and could get them to do things great horsemen of today can only can dream of.
This Master is so right with his treatment and respect of the horse and I personally think they should make this book even more indepth and everyone who rides should be given a copy to read.
Nuno is a believer that one should strive to read, meditate AND ride in order to become a worthy partner for such a noble animal as a horse. This book is beautiful, although if one is concerned solely with chasing dressage ribbons then some of the more 'mechanical' modern trainers might suit one better. One has only to view historical footage of Nuno riding, to appreciate how softly and willingly his horses work with him.
Nuno is indeed a true artist and a lover of the horse.
In this day where equestrianism has forgotten about the living animal we ask to bear us, where we treat them as machines, here is the voice of humanity, reason and understanding. It will make you think about your relationship with your horse. I have read it feeling guilty at times for when I lost patience with my horse but I don't have the same problems since I started following the master's way.
Equestrianism is an art, not a sport.

This is a lovely book full of thoughts and reflections. Not a training manual, it is exactly what it says on the cover. A pleasure to pick up any time, any where.Published 13 months ago by Shiv
Have already read it several times and glean more each time. One to be thought over and inwardly digestedPublished on 10 Oct. 2014 by Rachel
A very fine little book with reflections on fine riding Do not expect an instruction book. The book is quickly read, but best when re-read and digested slowly.Published on 12 Aug. 2013 by Gertrud
An nteresting book to dip into, for the "little gems". Not much interest for beginners, no instructional material is included.Published on 20 May 2013 by Eileen
