This week – divided over three chapters – Nelson Pessoa has taken us with on his life journey, sharing his experiences from an equestrian adventure that began just after World War II and which continues to this day. If you missed out, you can use the weekend to read all three parts via the links below – as well as our interview from 2018 with Rodrigo Pessoa. 

Here’s all you need to know about two of the biggest legends in the showjumping world: 

Nelson Pessoa: “To the horse, you need to talk horse”

Nelson Pessoa: The Wizard

Nelson Pessoa: “What I have appreciated the most in my life is to be recognised as a good horseman"
