What is the jumping record in horsemanship

Oddly enough, the jump record comes from 1949 and they achieved it in Chile, sometimes in model times we forget the story, especially because in many cases there is no one who does not tell it, but this time we have investigated for you a little about the records of jumping in horsemanship, which was obtained by the Chilean Alberto Larraguibel, which was a Chilean military rider with his horse Huaso.

The world record was obtained in a competition that was held in the Viña del Mar Cuirassier Regiment on February 5, 1949, obtaining there the record of 2,47 meters in height, surpassing the previous registered mark that was of 2,44 meters and came from a fabulous jump given by the Italian rider Antonio Gutiérrez riding Ossopo.

Returning to the Chilean specimen, it was a wonderful horse that at birth was baptized as Faithful, which was born in 1933, sixteen years before achieving its heroic jump, which guaranteed from that moment that until the end of its days it would spend its time resting in the School of Cavalry, where he walked through the gardens and fields without anyone ever riding him again.

On August 24, 1961, this horse died at the age of 28, its remains today rest in the Armored Cavalry School of Quillota, Chile. His feat has not yet been surpassed, holding the world record for high jump in horsemanship. At the end of 2007 a monument was installed in his memory.
