This month I have something a little different for the blog. I recently received a book by Keron Psillas Oliveira, containing beautiful photographs of Lusitano horses. The book “Lusitano, Noble, Courageous, Eternal” is the result of years spent photographing these wonderful Portuguese horses.
I first came across the Lusitano horse when I was studying with Nuno Oliveira in Portugal. In a stable full of this incredible breed, I found horses who were generous in spirit, brave and agile, and who would willingly teach me all I needed to know.
Keron Psillas Oliveira has captured the essence of these versatile horses with beautiful photographs, showing them in all their many moods: mares with foals in the scenic Portuguese countryside, horses in piaffe, or simply exuding the joy of being a horse. This book captures the Lusitano at his very best.
If you are looking for a Christmas present for someone (or a treat for yourself) this could be the book for you.
