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.
Being almost pure Tabatinga, Amethyst’s pedigree shows very old blood and most of these horses most likely predate the creation of the ELITE book. Tabatinga Predileto, Tabatinga Cossaco are pillars of the Tabatinga heritage and the Marchador breed.
Elite Book Horses in Amethyst’s immediate background:
- Icaro de Itajoana (grandsire)
- Violeta Tabatinga
