Author: Master Nuno Oliveira

Master Nuno Oliveira is considered to be one of the leading figures (if not the leading figure) in the Equestrian Art of the 20th century. He was not only an expert in the discipline and its history but also an outstanding teacher and mentor, an instructor with unusual intelligence and a highly developed equestrian feeling, an unrivaled artist in the saddle.

Now, the collected later writings of Master Nuno Oliveira are now made available to English-speaking readers in one economical volume. These works have been re-translated from Nuno Oliveira's original manuscripts in both Portuguese and French. The collection of photographs is unmatched. Photographs are carefully reproduced and rarely seen images will come to light in this unique collection of texts.

This long-awaited publication is a must for riders and lovers of fine riding and classical equestrian art. Together with the companion volume to this book, Equestrian Art: The Early Writings (1951-1956) of Master Nuno Oliveira, we now present, for the first time in English, in a set of two volumes, the complete written works of one of the greatest equestrian masters of the twentieth century.

Book 2 Horses and Their Riders

Book 3a Notes on the Teaching of Nuno Oliveira

Book 3b Notes on Elementary Equitation

Book 4 From an Old Écuyer to Young Riders
