Violeiro do Riomar stands out as a sire, passing on to his offspring a great gait with quick changes of support and excellent diagram of triple support (smooth), morphological beauty, good bone structure and angles, a high setting neck and lots of nobility.   His not so strong points might be a better head and ears.

Violeio has produces well with mare of various bloodlines.”

Winning at the National Mangalarga Marchador Horse Expo in Brazil – 2010 and 2011.   For some background, any horse competing here has to be a champion already crowned in another regional competition.   The classes – by sex, gait and age – can have as many as 40 horses in each class competing for the national titles.  It is the largest breed show in South America with thousands of Marchador horses competing.   For Violeiro, the travel to arrive there was almost 1000 miles.   And you can see at the end of the video, that the rider carries the flag of Bahia, for Violeiro won – not only for the breeder and owner, but for the state as well.
