Agro Maripa has produced a genetic line of Mangalarga Marchadors that can best be described as sport horses. Owned by Marcelo and Sophia Baptista de Oliveira, their breeding program is proven on long rides (calvagadas) and sporting events, not in the show ring. Each individual horse is known and tested before the decision is made to use them as a breeding stallion.
Maripa horses were used to recreate a great historical adventure in 2004 of 9,000 miles on the Anhanguera trail in Brazil. In March 2011, 2 Maripa stallions (both sons of Oma) were used in exhibitions at Equitana in Germany. In May, with their Mangalarga Marchador horses in Europe, Marcelo and Sophia flew to Spain and rode their 2 stallions on a long ride – 300km in 9 days – on the Camino de Santiago ending at Santiago de Compostela, a medieval cathedral. (A pilgrimage trail called the way of St James).
