Brazilian Breeders Weekend Jan 26-27

Click on the album photos below to see full-screen.

Brazilian breeders from Haras Avena and Haras do AP arrived in Arizona to celebrate the arrival of frozen semen from 2 of their stallions.   We met the semen and Brazilian vet Caroline Lisboa at the airport and the weekend activities began!   Hosting several dinners and also a barn tour of 4 Mangalarga Marchador barns, we all had a great time.

We will be adding these 2 stallions – Violeiro do Riomar and Carnaval Sao Lourenco – the first importation from Bahia state to the website in February.  Watch for their announcements.   Truly, they will add to the MM genetics here in North America.

Our thanks to Carlos Avena, Juliane Avena, Paulo Novoa, Ana Paula Novoa, Laura Patterson Rosa and Caroline Lisboa, who never gave up in this multi-year, international effort.   Thanks to all the SW Future Foal breeders and owners who always give their support!

Marchadors in Cowboy Dressage

Our update from Laurie Klassen in SK, Canada:

“A successful season has come to a close for this Saskatchewan Cowboy Dressage rider. The cold and snow has crept in and the horses will have a winter layoff now.

The season was fun and I feel I accomplished some good goals. Both of my Marchadors ended up competing after my mare Joia had to be laid off to an illness.

Joia has beautiful rhythm and this season received a bronze award and pin for her accomplishments.  Beethoven went from the trail to the rail to the show arena in a blink of an eye as he stood in for Joia.
Beethoven received some good marks in his dressage tests and was awarded a champion ribbon.  Judges for the season were Kim Moats Canada and Lynn Ringrose Moe California for the finals.

Marchadors have lovely rhythmic movement and I encourage MM owners to give this sport a try.

Thank you to Jody Lynn Busch Horsemanship for her guidance.”
