Both Giovanni and Cristina started to study with this Master at his centre Leiziria Grande. After some time they were introduced to the technical director of the National Stud in Portugal, Mr Pedro de Almeida, with whom they studied for many years cooperating also to the training of the horses at the National Stud.
Pedro De Almeida, who has been pupil of Nuno Oliveira, is still their main reference master.
Following the classical principles and equitation with an Oliveirista approach, Giovanni and Cristina were able to create a little corner of paradise, with more than 30 horses and just 10 rooms for their pupils.
At Il Paretaio you can feel a sense of harmony, beauty and balance wherever you turn.
