rodrigo pessoa

April 16, 2010

as described by producer extraordinaire peggy murray…”if there is truly one equestrian super star – like lebron james in the nba – in the world of grand prix jumping it is rodrigo pessoa. since the beginning of his grand prix jumping career at the age of 16, he has won every major class all over the world. his many achievements include winning the world cup three years in a row, being the youngest rider to ever win the grand prix of aachen at age 18, and winning the world championships in 1996. add a gold medal at the olympic games in athens to that list, and you have a list of accomplishments that even some of the world’s great riders only dream of.”

this winter at the winter equestrian festival, he won a grand prix with each of his three horses – champ, night train, and let’s fly, the horse he is taking to the world equestrian games. he was also the winner of many speed classes with the ever exciting palouchin de ligny.

rodrigo is mentored by his wonderfully gifted father, nelson pessoa, who was one of europe’s best riders in his day. together, they have created a brand of saddles and other high end products that are considered some of the best in the worlld.
