Horses
On this trail, we use purebred Mangalarga Marchador, beautiful and responsive horses, easy to ride. They have four gaits: the walk, the canter, and two ambling gaits, the marcha batida and the marcha picada; it does not trot.
Francisco Gabriel Junqueira, Baron of Alfenas, began breeding his imported Lusitano to the mares on his farm (primarily Barbs, along with other breeds brought to Brazil). The result was a smooth-gaited, attractive horse which the baron called Sublime. Junqueira sold some of the Sublimes to a friend who had a farm in Paty do Alferes, Rio de Janeiro. The farm's name was Mangalarga, and the owner rode Sublimes to and from Rio de Janeiro. In Rio, people noticed the smooth-gaited, attractive Sublimes and began calling them Mangalargas. Later they added the word “Marchador” , what means walker, because of its smooth gait.
