Event Subsidy Award – Host


In order to encourage members to host or sponsor events that introduce the public to the versatility of the Mangalarga Marchador, the USMMA has a EVENT Subsidy Award Program.

Examples could be hosting a “Meet the Marchador” Event at your farm or sponsoring a class at a show, or even creating your own show at a local arena. The event must be significant in size and numbers.

Any member of the association is eligible to apply if you have been a member for over one year.

Event Subsidy Program Goals:

  • To promote the Marchador in different geographical areas of North America
  • To showcase the Marchador in different types of events
  • To showcase well-trained, well-gaited Marchadors ridden by owners, breeders or professional trainers
