Equestrian Art: The Collected Later Works by Master Nuno Oliveira (Collector's Edition)
Detailní popis produktu
He believed that every single horse had to be trained to the highest degree of perfection and shine within the scope of its individual possibilities. He rose above any doctrinal dispute and focused on the task at hand. A rider should not only ride but also observe, study, read and think carefully. He/she should act rationally and calmly, never act brutally or with force; he should have love of the horse and develop great equestrian feeling, the greatest of all equestrian virtues.
To achieve this, he taught with the messages of Etienne Beudant and Faverot de Kerbrech: "Ask often, be satisfied with a little, and reward often."
For the first time, the collected writings of Master Nuno Oliveira are now made available to English-speaking readers in one volume. These works have been re-translated from Nuno Oliveira's original manuscripts in both Portuguese and French. The collection of photographs is unmatched. Where available color photographs are carefully reproduced and in other cases, 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.
