A look back in time. Can anybody identify the rider and horse?

I'll ask Andreas Hausburger. Unless you already know the answer, Mike?

I don't know the answer.
It does look like Podhajsky. Andreas isn't around yet today. Will post as soon as I hear.
Here you go, Mike:
Col. Podhajsky with Neapolitano Santuzza, Stockholm 1952 (Alois Podhajsky: Ein Leben für die Lipizzaner, München 1960, p. 240 et seq.)
Podhajsky is my hero! I love his books, especially "My Horses, My Teachers".
But to be totally honest, that it was he was a lucky guess.
Somoone commented under the photo that her horse did this! I know the feeling - I used to ride a jumper who'd come into a fence doing his version of caprioles. It was a bi^ch to count strides!
