They were beautiful to watch. Thanks for the link.

I notice there are some clips on you tube of a Nuno Oliveira playing the organ - is this the same Oliviera or is it a namesake? My father was a concert pianist and organist and I could imagine a rider like Oliviera being deeply musical.

Goodness that just reminds me of a ballroom dance.

Thank you for sharing the links.

In one video he rides with his head bowed, is he closing his eyes and feeling the ride? Any comments on that posture?

I don't know whether this is correct, but what I have read is that he had a physical impairment or difficulty of some kind as he aged--riding with the head bowed was not a riding strategy, just an effect of that difficulty, which he much regretted.   Perhaps others have more information or know the true reason, if I am mistaken.
