When the Junqueira family moved to São Paulo, the topography and local culture forced them to seek for a horse with different characteristics and so they started to cross breed the Mangalarga with Hackey, Morgan, American Saddle Horse, Hanoverian and Trakehner. This made the Mangalarga a completely different horse breed form the Mangalarga Marchador. They are so different that each one has its own studbook. Mangalargas are registered at ABCCRM
Mangalarga is a Brazilian horse breed that was first originated from the Francisco Gabriel Junqueira (Baron of Alfenas) work with Royal Alter stallions form Portugal that were mixed with colonial horses in Brazil. This mix also originated the Mangalarga Marchador breed that differs from de Mangalarga because of its smooth gait and its strait relation with iberian horses instead of other European breeds.
