History [ edit ]

Of ancient Iberian bloodlines, the Marchador horse developed in Brazil during the 1800s after Royal horses were shipped to Brazil after Napolean invaded. The Royal Alter stallion Sublime, was crossed with Andulusian, Criollo, Barbs and most importantly the smooth Spanish Jennet, which is now extinct, to produce the modern Marchador horse. Historically, each farm produced a heritage and a bloodline that identified their horses. The horse’s name always includes the breeding farm as part of the name. Some of older farm names and bloodlines are listed below. Mangalarga was one of the first farms during which the horses gained popularity, hence the adoption of Mangalaraga Marchador. The breeding farms kept impeccable written records so the history of many present-day Marchadors can be traced back 20 generations or more. The breed continues to be developed and improved today with many more new farms and breeders in Brazil. Many new farms incorporate combinations of several bloodlines to produce their future champions.

Temperament [ edit ]

Regardless of your desires, the Marchador’s beauty and people-loving personality will win your heart. The Brazilians say “ONE BREED, ONE PASSION”. Glowing endorsements have been written about the Marchador, many in Portuguese, but more recently in English with the International Encyclopedia of Horse Breeds and the Fabulous Floating Horses. This is what Bonnie Hendricks writes: "This is without a doubt one of the most outstanding horse breeds in the world." ”Training of this breed is facilitated by its intelligence, and uses for the breed are unlimited. In work with cattle, in sports, in functional trials now performed as part of the official calendar of the ABCCMM, or in cross-country horsemanship, the Marchador is outstanding and is obtaining excellent results in comparison to other breeds. This breed is extremely docile and is commonly mounted by children.” International Encyclopedia of Horse Breeds, Bonnie L. Hendricks, University of Oklahoma Press, 1995, reprinted with permission from the author and Oklahoma Press
