Dr. Getulio Tadeau Vieira returns to the US in May to inspect U.S. born Marchador horses. USMMA members who are also members of the ABCCMM wanted to have their horses maintain Brazilian registry as well. The Brazilian association has strict guidelines and it inspects all horses for conformation, gait and temperment at age three before the horses are fully registered. Lynn Kelley is coordinating the effort again and we plan to host our first clinic during the inspection visit as well.
For more information about the inspection process, please read the attached pdf which was an article published after the 2005 inspection. 2005 marked the 1st time an inspection was ever held outside of the Marchador’s native country, Brasil.
