Colonel Alberto Larraguibel Morales (May 30, 1919 - April 12, 1995) was a Chilean Army officer born in Angol, Chile. He remains as the record holder for high-jump on horseback, one of the longest-running unbroken sport records in history - 68 years as of 2017.
He was born on May 30, 1919.
Then-Captain Larraguibel broke the record for the "high-jump" at 2.47 metres (8.1 ft), riding Huaso, formerly called "Faithful", at the Official International Event at Viña del Mar, Chile on February 5, 1949. The Committee of Records ratified this record on May 28, 1949 and stated that a height of at least 2.49 metres (8.2 ft) must be cleared to beat it.
