Azenha de Maripa is a stunning, beautiful Mangalarga Marchador mare! When we first saw her in Brazil, we thought she was a stallion because of her bold movement in the ring. She will take your breath away!
Her personality and intelligence are instantly apparent. She loves people and has a wonderful soft, kind eye. She has a lot of heart and try in her. She will give you her all. Azenha has a very smooth walking gait and a fast marcha that is also easy riding. But make no mistake about it, this is a mare who was bred to GO.
The Maripa farm in Brazil is known for breeding beautiful animals and also for focusing on long distance, high energy sport horses – for over 30 years!. Azenha is a great example of their breeding philosophy. The Maripa genetics are very strong. Azenha has been competed in Competitive Trail and Endurance.
Azenha is a daughter of the similarly striking Laio de Maripa, an ELITE book stallion in Brazil. Her pedigree and bloodline are unique in the U.S. She is a mix of Herdade and Abaiba, both traditional bloodlines in Brazil.

Planned breeding in 2018 to Jedi-Knight do Summerwind.
