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.

There are actually 2 ELITE books.  MM7 has about 700 horses of distinction.   MM8 (the SPECIAL ELITE book) has only 67 horses.  Horses who are in MM8 are also in MM7.
