Mangalarga Marchador History

The Mangalarga Marchador comes from beautiful and sunny Brazil. They are described as an enchanted breed with lots of desirable qualities. Thought of as deriving from the Sublime style of horse in the eighteen hundreds, the breed possesses Alter-Real blood lines that went on to be called Sublime Horses. They have a very unique gait that appears to look somewhat like a march when they walk and gallop. This gait is referred to as the marcha. At this time, the Sublime horses began to be purchased by those called the Hacienda Mangalarga group. It was at this point that they were no longer known as the Sublime horses and changed to the Mangalarga Marchador style of horses. This breed is notorious for their variances in marches including the marcha picada, the marcha batida, and the center march. One is slower, one is a diagonal pace, and the last one is thought to mimic the unique style of the Tennessee Walking Horse.
