The Brazilian Sport Horse is a breed specifically bred for equestrian events, including show jumping, dressage, and eventing. Its striking, elegant, and graceful movements make it a popular choice for beginners as well as experienced riders. Read on to learn about this versatile horse. Listed below are some of the most popular types of Brazilian Sport Horses. Here is a brief look at the different breeds. While each of them has their own distinctive qualities, they are all equally suitable for the sport they are best suited for.
The history of the Brazilian Sport Horse Sublimes began in the early 1800s when Francisco Gabriel Junqueira, Baron of Alfenas, exported some of his horses to the Imperial capital of Rio de Janeiro. In order to increase the quality of the horse, he crossed Royal Alter stallions with Barb horses and other breeds brought to Brazil during the colonial era. The result was a smooth-gaited, attractive horse, and the horses were named after their new owner.
The birth of the Brazilian Sport Horse Sublimes can be traced to the early 1740s, when the foundation stallion, Sublime, was crossed with Andalusians, Jennets, and Spanish Criollos. Sublime’s offspring were used to work on vast cattle ranches in Brazil, including the Mangalarga Marchador. Today, the Brazilian Sport Horse Sublime is the national horse of the country.
The first Brazilian Sport Horse was named after the nobleman of Mangalarga, who rode Sublime to the capital city. He was praised for his smooth grace, his untiring heart, and his Spanish elegance. Sublime’s descendants dominated the following generations. The breed became well-known in the U.S. only in the late 1800s and early 1900s, when stud records were formalized. The Mangalarga Marchador Horse Association of America was founded in 2000, and it imported some of these horses to the U.S.
Haras Rosa Mystica
Victoria Colvin is teaming up with Brazilian sport horse studs, Haras Rosa Mystica, to make a name for themselves in the international equestrian arena. The Haras Rosa Mystica stables are in Salto de Pirapora, Sao Paulo, and are dedicated to breeding top performance sport horses and developing them into top showjumpers. The breeding operation also boasts a strong breeding program for its prodigies.
As the leading exporter of Rosa Mystica horses, the United States is their primary market. The Brazilian Sport Horse competes at high-level events such as the Palm Beach Masters Series, Tryon Equestrian Center, Pennsylvania National Horse Show, and Split Rock Jumping Tour. This equine’s breeding program has led to the development of artificial insemination in Brazilian sport equine competitions.
The breed has also had some notable stallion representation in the Brazilian breeding program. The reserve national champion, El Tino, was a product of line breeding with the Bey Shah sire line. El Tino, a son of DA Valentino by Versace, and the grandsire of a mare named Imprimista, won the Reserve National Champion title. El Tino is owned by Pedro Amaral of Haras El Madan, who also imported two champions, Sherrize D’ Pscore JM and HK Keav Power.
The breeding program was initiated by Leandro de Aguiar in the 1980s. The program shifted to Arabian horses in 2010, and he has since visited America, Europe, and the Middle East to learn more about the breed. He also learned how to raise top-quality Arabian horses. Those standards are being met today and his goal is to surpass those of his predecessors. But it will take a while before he can reach the heights of success.
The Selle Francais is the ultimate sport horse and the ultimate keeper. They are approximately 15.1 to 17.3 hands tall with well-developed hindquarters and strong hocks. The breed standard focuses on appearance and performance. Its long neck and straight back give it a powerful appearance. Its long legs have firm, hard hooves. Its distinctive white coat adds to its beauty.
Originally only bred in France, the Selle Francais is now widely available. Stud books in Great Britain and the United States have been established and their offspring are sold all over the world. The French stud book records approximately 7,000 foals per year. Thanks to artificial insemination, breeding from approved stallions is now possible globally. And because the breed is so versatile, the dream of finding the perfect pair is within reach for many riders.
The Selle Francais breed is recognized around the world for its athletic abilities. Its athletes have risen to the highest levels of competition, including the Olympics. In the 2000 Summer Olympics, Selle Francais riders Kamal Bahamdan won the individual bronze medal on Noblesse des Tess, and Sandra Auffarth won the Individual Bronze medal on Selle Francais Opgun Luovo.
