Alessandro Valerio belonged to the group of riders who spread the system of natural horsemanship conceived by the Italian cavalry captain Federico Caprilli. As an officer of the Horse Artillery Regiment he won the silver medal in individual jumping behind his fellow countryman [Tommaso Lequio di Assaba] at the 1920 Antwerpen Olympics with his horse Cento. Before World War I the Tsar of Russia asked him to teach the Caprilli method in that country. He was later sent to America to buy horses for the Army.
