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, until 2005, there were no classes at the shows for Marcha Picada horses. Tabatinga Predileto is a good example of this. He is a pillar of the MM breed, but he is not listed in the ELITE book, probably because it was not yet created.
