Nuno Oliveira began his riding career with maestro Jonquin Gonzales de Miranda, Master of the Horse to the King of Portugal. In the 1940's he opened his own riding school and soon became an international name in the world of classical equitation. This book emphasizes lightness and harmony, reflecting a deep love and respect for the horse. First published in France in 1957, Reflections of Equestrian Art was translated into English by Phyllis Field in 1976. Times change but classical principles remain.
As Sylvia Loch said in her book “Dressage: The Art of Classical Riding,” Nuno Oliveira was "a man who could bring magical steps out of the most ordinary horse, a man who rode like a king, so that his horses carried him like a king."
