REFLECTIONS ON EQUESTRIAN ART 

by Nuno Oliveira 

Reflections on Equestrian Art was first published in France , 1964, at the request of some of Maestro Oliveira's pupils. It was translated into English in 1976 by Phyllis Field. 
Since then, Nuno Oliveira has taught in the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Peru. Skill, artistry, total dedication and absolute brilliance have earned the Maestro international recognition. In 1987 he held a Master Class in England as guest of the Association of British Riding Schools. 
 
Times change but classical principles remain the same. Over two decades have passed, but Reflections on Equestrian Art remains one of the most relevant and true descriptions of Nuno Oliveira's work. The publishers are proud to present this second edition.
