Gentlemen Riders Association was founded in 1955 by the Marques de Murrieta, Don Julián Olivares and Bruguera. At first, most people who were part of the partnership were military.
Gentlemen Riders Association aims to bring together riders "amateurs" or "amateurs" who ride or have ridden in horse racing. Create and maintain permanent ties between them courtesy and sportsmanship, and perpetuate the traditions of perfect accuracy, determination and courage are indispensable in the institutions of the races, of which, the Gentlemen Riders must in all circumstances, lead by example and ensure compliance.
The Association will seek to develop the number and level of evidence of Gentlemen Riders, encourage and facilitate the sport of riding in horse racing mode, stimulate these competitions both nationally and internationally, to keep in touch with the clubs or similar associations in other nations and to secure the Gentlemen-Riders all possible moral and material advantages.
The International Association which coordinates cross-country racing is the Fegentri.
The Fegentri was formed in early twentieth century, due to problems concerning administrative and customs. The horses could wait up to 48 hours at the border. In a meeting on customs issues, the idea to create an International Federation: The FEGENTRI, whose objective was to establish bonds of comradeship and solidarity perpetuating the traditions of morality, courtesy, and courage, features equestrian sports, international competitions by allowing better know and understand more. The Aegri Fegentri acceded to in 1956.
During his long career, the Aegri has trained many of the great professionals, owners of stables, trainers, jockeys, racetrack managers, etc, with which the Spanish race tracks are very fortunate to have and hold and develop one of the world's most beautiful activities ....

 

An example to emulate for the new generations is the Duque de Alburquerque

Caballo que vuela al viento con su color alazán
que lo monta un caballero, caballero de verdad.
Es duque, señor amigo, es el jinete Beltrán.

Caballo, tú lo adivinas, por su estilo y suavidad ,
porque acaricia las crines, porque sabe dominar.
Gana caballo tu apuesta, todos van quedando atrás.

¿Qué jinete es el que manda estilo señorial, que sólo con sus rodillas
te impulsa para saltar?
Es el duque de Alburquerque con su monta magistral.
"Tebas", "Lagartijo" y "Quorun", caballos a recordar.

Ganaste "Espuela de Oro" y triunfaste en el "Lingfield Park"
Por más de siete veces, corriste en el "Grand National"
Lloraste por "Alfidir", que en una noche lunar
se partió su largo cuello para quedarse incapaz.

De Inglaterra gran amigo y de su Casa Real
Cuando en España eras jefe de la "Casa" de Don Juan.

Con la Luna por testigo, las estrellas brillan más
en el cálido homenaje que los "gentlemen" te dan
en honor a tu recuerdo, que nadie podrá olvidar.

¡Dios te guarde Rider Gentleman!
Dios te guarde Don Beltrán.

 

Rafael Gómez-Jordana (Embajador de España)
