Colonel Alberto Larraguibel Morales (May 30, 1919 - April 12, 1995) was a Chilean Army officer of Basque descent born in Angol, Chile. He remains the record holder for Puissance (high-jump) on Horseback, one of the longest-running unbroken sport records in history -- 67 years as of 2016.
Then-Captain Morales broke the record for the "high-jump" at 2.47 metres (8.1 ft), riding Huaso ex-"Faithfull", 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.
Morales died in Santiago, Chile at the age of 75.
