​The Lusitano Horse  by Juan Carlos Altamirano

In this documented & illustrated book, the author presents the history of the Lusitano Horses since their origin until our times, history that varies substantially from the theories supported until today. The book widely develops the theory of the "Iberian horse" making us realize that such a horse never existed & that the Purebred Lusitano Horse does not descend from it. It also shows that the process of formation of this breed was not initiated thousands of years ago, as many authors have claimed, but in 1640, with a group of horses of French origin purchased in Poitiers & La Rochelle, by order of king Juan IV, & was later forged by means of crossbreeding carried out with specimens belonging to breeds such as the Purebred Spanish Horse, the Arab, & the English Thoroughbred, amongst others.

From the Real Picaria of the 18th century to the Portuguese School of Equestrian Art

by Pedro Yglesias de Oliveira and Emilia Celestino da Costa

In recreating the prestigious Real Picaria, the 18th century Equestrian Academy of the Portuguese Royal Court, the Portuguese School of Equestrian Art continues one of the oldest and most brilliant Portuguese traditions. Since ancient times, Portugal has cultured a fondness for horses and their uses. In the 15th century, Dom Duarte, King of Portugal published the first treatise on riding. It was from the Iberian Peninsula that the principles of Equestrian Art reached Renaissance Italy, and later spread  to the rest of the civilized world.  This book is a tribute to the beautiful Lusitano horse, and to all equestrians who, over the centuries, and in spite of variable circumstances, have protected and disseminated the Portuguese equestrian traditions, especially those now practiced at the Portuguese School of Equestrian Art.   (Portuguese/English).

Ecole de Cavalerie by Francois Robichon de la Gueriniere

One of the bibles of classical dressage, most famous for its introduction of the shoulder-in. According to Col. Alois Podhajsky, former director of the Spanish Riding School for 26 years, this is "the most revolutionary book on riding of all times. Its principles are still applied unaltered at the Spanish Court Riding School and may be seen there in daily use." La Gueriniere's work is still considered the equestrian 'Bible' of the Spanish Riding School of Vienna, and though it has only recently been translated word for word into English, it stands as an enduring landmark of equestrian literature

The Maneige Royal, or L’Instruction du Roy, by Antoine de Pluvinel

Unquestionably one of the most important books ever written about the art of horsemanship. Antione de Pluvinel lived from 1555 to 1620. Of gentle birth, he was a courtier to three kings of France: Henry III, Henry IV, and Louis XIII. He studied equitation from an early age, and spent six years as a pupil of the great Giovanni Battista Pignatelli in Napoles (southern Italy). When de Pluvinel returned to France, he opened an academy for young gentlemen at the Faubourg St. Honoré, where the subjects of music, literature, painting, mathematics, and riding were taught. Le Maneige Royal takes the form of a dialogue between master and pupil. This work also describes de Pluvinel’s desire to develop a more humane approach to training horses. Among other things, de Pluvinel was the first riding master to describe all of the High School movements and aids, and is believed to have been the first to use pillars for training horses.

DRESSAGE IN THE FRENCH TRADITION by Dom Diogo de Bragança

Dom Diogo de Bragança, an eclectic mind who studied languages, music composition and law, is one of the great equestrian figures of our time. His technique was built on a long apprenticeship with Master Nuno Oliveira (of whom he was one of the first students), which resulted in a natural horsemanship, full of tact and sensitivity. He acquired an amazing equestrian culture through the many books he studied in French and Portuguese and kept applying the theories he researched on the numerous horses he successfully trained. His vast experience and spirit of observation allowed him to present in this seminal book a complete analysis of the goals and methods of French dressage. Dressage in the French Tradition is a reference for the understanding of classical dressage in which the horse, ridden with the greatest impulsion and lightness, displays his maximum activity in response to the minimum effort of the rider.

30 YEARS WITH MASTER NUNO OLIVEIRA by Michel Henriquet

This classical text, which knowledgeable horsemen have been anxiously awaiting for years, is finally available in English.

Now a master écuyer in his own right, Henriquet embellishes this new edition with 50 photographs from his personal collection. This first and only English edition includes many more photographs of Nuno Oliveira and histeacher than earlier editions. It has also been embellished with a glossary and a descriptive table of contents for the 71 chapters..

 

 

The Wisdom of Master Nuno Oliveira

Antoine de Coux, a magistrate in the Belgian Congo, was undoubtedly one of the most loyal students of Master Nuno Oliveira. From 1966, when they met and became close friends, until Oliveira's death in 1989, Antoine de Coux participated in the annual two-month training sessions that Nuno Oliveira held in Belgium. De Coux was a fine rider, watched every lesson and took copious notes, filling more than forty notebooks. He faithfully recorded the teachings and remarks of the Master. When Oliveira passed, de Coux decided to organize this great "memoir of a life experience," so that all riders could benefit from this knowledge. Nuno Oliveira was an exceptionally talented educator, gladly repeating his concepts with different descriptions to suit the level of understanding of his wide range of students. .

Truth in the Teaching of Master Nuno Oliveira Eleanor Russell

Eleanor Russell was a recognized dressage rider, an FEI judge and a breeder of Arabian Warmbloods from Australia. She was a student of Nuno Oliveira & translated 2 of his last books. By his tireless work, study, and belief in the Classical Principles of the art of training horses, Nuno provided the link with the Great Masters of the 16th, 17th and 19th century in Europe. Nuno Oliveira taught and trained all his life, based originally in Lisbon, and later in Avessada, Portugal. He gave numerous performances with his beautifully trained horses throughout Portugal, often for charity. In the 1960's and early 1970's, he travelled to Europe & the United Kingdom to give demonstrations of all Classical movements. He also travelled to the United States, South America, Australia and Asia giving training clinics and performances. He was regarded world-wide as the last of the Old Master Trainers, always devoted to the principles of the Classical Trainers of old.

Dressage Principles and Techniques: A blueprint for the serious rider by Major Miguel de Lancastre e Tavora

Miguel de Lancastre e Tavora was a master rider, trainer, and instructor. His genuine love and care for the well-being of horses comes through on every page of his magnum opus: Dressage Principles and Techniques. His kind, calm, and methodical approach is laid out in a progressive sequence that adheres strictly to the principles of the FEI. Miguel Tavora rode with Nuno Oliveira from the age of eight years until he was eighteen. After his military training, he was appointed as Chief Instructor and Director of Equestrian Teaching of the Mafra School in Portugal. Miguel migrated to Australia, where he and his wife Dianne ran their equestrian center. He trained numerous horses and riders in Australia, Portugal, and the USA to FEI levels.

This is becoming a lost art, but it is explained here and demonstrated by the author

 

Lessons in Lightness

Mark Russell (1951-2016) explains the theories and methods of the Old Masters in his easy-to-implement progression suitable for educating the riding horse in all disciplines. Lessons in Lightness offers the rider the concept of educating rather than training the horse using relaxation as the cornerstone. A tense horse has difficulty assimilating new information, yet relaxation often can be a difficult state to achieve. Mark Russell demonstrates not only how to attain relaxation but also how to maintain it throughout the horse’s education.
