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.   Providencia Itu is a good example of this.  He is a pillar of the MM breed, but he is not listed in the ELITE book, perhaps because it was not yet created.

Elite Book Horses in Bacara’s immediate background:

Sire’s side

  1. Discreto J.B. (Grandsire)
  2. Carvao L.J. – SPECIAL ELITE book – fewer than 70 horses with this distinction
  3. Elite L.J.
  4. Herdade Prateado
  5. Herdade Cadilac
Dam’s Side
  1. Herdade Cadilac

It is not the only measure though as some breeders prefer not to show their horses, but to prove them in athletic competitive competitions like calvagadas, endurance, working equitation and other sports.
