Rodrigo Pessoa. Hopefully that didn't impact his saddles' designs too much...

Is there a picture of the landing??? He looks so composed I think I'd be ore stressed jumping something that size forward let alone backward :P
I guess I have something new to work on

I thought we had tried just about anything, but that we didn't.
I read on a different post that this rider was actually Filippo Moyersoen, not Rodrigo Pessoa. I don't know who it is. But it made me just shake my head...
"somebody hold my Vino!" must have preceded this endeavor.....

I'm pretty sure that's not Rodrigo. Or at least it wasn't until half the internet said it was - you know, internet truth trumps real truth
That picture is impressive not because of jumping backwards only, but the height and that the horse is doing so well, not having to fight an ackward weight, the rider is balanced thru it.
Would have been interesting to see the whole, approach jump and landing.
