Count Roberto de Vasconcellos Circus Ring Of Fame Foundation inductee

Born of Portuguese nobility, experts acclaimed him to be the foremost exponent of classical horsemanship. His career evolved in the great circuses, music halls and theaters on three continents and culminated with the 1963-4 tour by Ringling in Europe and Russia. His mastery of seemingly unattainable high school maneuvers and extraordinary animated scenes continues to inspire renowned horsemen to this day.
