One measure of greatness is Brasil’s ELITE book – a registry of National Champion Marchadors who also produced National Champions.  Parents and grandparents that are ELITE champions matter the most.  Further back in the pedigree, it becomes less of an indicator.

The ELITE book is not the only measure of quality however.   Some Marchador breeders prefer not to show their horses, but to prove them in other ways — like cavalgadas, sports, cattle and ranch work etc.     Also, we do not know the year that the ELITE book was created.  Farrapo Bela Cruz is a good example of this.  He appears more than once in the dam’s pedigree and was thought by many to be a pillar of the MM breed, but he is not listed in the ELITE book.
