Morning Classes – Horses under saddle or in-hand (youngsters welcome).

  • Marchador geldings – gait
  • Marchador mares – gait

Afternoon classes:  Horses in-hand:

  • Marchador geldings – conformation
  • Marchador mares – conformation

At this time, we have no plans for a stallion division, but can easily add one if you wish to participate with your Marchador stallion.

Depending on the horses entered, there may be 2 divisions in gait for marcha picada and marcha batida.

In Brazil, there are 5 judges in the arena.   The highest and lowest scores are discarded and the middle 3 are added together and averaged to come up with the winner of the event.    We will have 2 judges, plus the auditors to complete the scoring.   After each class, we will announce the results and the judges will go through their evaluation of the horses with why they scored them as they did and what attributes of each horse are the best.

Before or during the class, the judge may ask to ride each horse and/or help the rider with how to improve the gait of their horse.
