Come to Brazil! 05/02/2011
  The VERY best way to meet a Marchador is to go to BRASIL!   Immerse yourself in the food, the culture, the people and of course, their horses! 

We invite you to join us. The agenda and dates: July 15 – July 25

The Mangalarga Marchador National Exposition in Belo Horizonte, MG: You will participate in the biggest event of the MM Breed, with over 1500 horses who are already champions in their region or event. The winners are called “champions of champions”! There are exciting auctions in the evenings, a chance to meet many breeders and you will get to ride some of the horses there – thrilling. We will be there for 2-3 days. 

Trips to selected MM Farms: You will visit outstanding Mangalarga Marchador farms, set in the countryside. There will be a presentation of their horses and breeding. Then, there is the chance to ride in the countryside on some of their best horses. We will be at farms for 4-5 days.

 Options for additional travel: Stay 1-2 days for additional pleasure. Based on your choice, visit RIO!, the historic MM farms, the historic towns of Ouro Preto or Tiradentes, longer horseback riding trips, or the Bahia beaches!
