The Marchador  has been bred for over 200 years in Brazil to be the ultimate saddle horse.   The ABCCMM (Brazilian association)  inspection process and breed standard determine the exact conformation, angles, height and gait that make the Marchador a pleasant and comfortable horse to ride that is also elegant, beautiful and with an excellent temperament.  There are 23 measurements taken during the course of inspection and the horse is ridden by a certified technician that is also a veterinarian.    The Marchador has been kept and treasured in Brazil all this time, where the breed numbers over 400,000 horses.

The Marchador has been here in North America since the early 1990s, but the population is  small, less than 300.  Most of the Marchadors here are derived from the 70 or so that were originally imported from Brazil.  

That may be about to change as the Marchador makes its entry onto the world stage!
