CHAPTER 1: Analysis of the 2016 ANCR Reining Futurity Results in Brazil

We are lucky to count in Europe with a specialist of Criollo’s functional pedigrees, Mr. Andreas Werdermann, from the German Criollo Breed CP Criollos.

Andreas is the owner of Cimarron de Baviera, a Criollo stallion showed by his son and professional rider Joschka Werdermann, with the greatest results in Reining, Working Cowhorse and Ranch Riding competitions in Germany and Europe.

Andreas has been watching and studying the results and pedigrees of many Criollos in Brazil, especially those that were showed in Reining competitions and Freno de Oro, making correlations between the genealogies of these functional horses.
The Freno de Oro is a competition born in Brazil, currently practiced in Argentina and Uruguay as well, where each competitor will be evaluated taking into account the morphology of the horse, the way he naturally moves, and its results in 4 different kind of competitions, with cattle and without cattle. Some exercises are quite similar to Reining: sliding stop, spin, and circles.

Brazil is the country where most opportunities in Reining were given to Criollos. Criollos are already bred and selected to compete in Reining national competition where Quarter Horses used to have the leadership.

As underlined by Andreas, last year, in 2016, there were 11 Criollos participating at the ANCR Reining Futurity in Brazil (in total, 58 competitors, most of them Quarter Horses). The ANCR is the Brazilian National Association of Reining Horses, a NRHA member organisation.

Andreas evaluated the ANCR Futurity results and the ABCCC (the Brazilian Association of Criollo Breeders) database concerning the participating Criollos, and made several interesting conclusions.

He notices that in the average, the 11 participating Criollos had better results and scores than most of the Quarter Horses.

The Best Criollo of the 2016 ANCR Reining Futurity was Craque Marca dos Santos (Gelding, born 30.11.2012) who scored 218 in the qualifying and 220 in the final, got the 3rd place at the Open level 4, and 1st place at the Open level 3. Craque Marca Dos Santos is a son of Joio do Infinito and also has Brazilian, Chilean and Argentinian ancestros (see pedigree).

Futurity final

Joio do Infinito, Craque Marca Dos Santos’s father, was successful in Reining himself. And actually, Andreas points out that 8 from the above-mentioned 11 Criollos participating at the ANCR Futurity have fathers that were successful in Reining themselves.

He explains that 4 of these 11 Criollos are from Duque do Caijaara (*1999), a Criollo stallion that was a ANCR Futurity Winner, Champion Snafle-Bit ANCR, Champion Copa Querência, ABCCC National Champion, NRHA Reinarama Champion (USA), NRHA Derby Finalist (USA).  Duque do Caijaara is the son of BT SULTÃO (a stallion from Brazil) which comes from La Invernada Hornero (Chile) and Tinajero Presumido (Chile) by Aculeo Condorito (Chile).

Furthermore, 3 of these 11 Criollos are from Joio do Infinito, who won the IRHA Derby in 2006, and was Champion Summer Slide Italy 2006. Joio Do Infinito’s father is Consuelo do Infinito (Brazil) by Santa Elba Senuelo (Chile), His mother’s father is a Brazilian Criollo with pure Chilean Boodlines, Muchacho de Santa Angelica, which comes from Santa Elba Senuelo as well.

You can watch JOIO DO INFINITO's performance at the 2006 IRHA Derby following this link:


Then, 1 of these 11 Criollos is from SJ Rodopio, a Criollo stallion that participated with the Brazilian Team at the World Equestrian Games in 2010 and 2014 (7th place) and won the Copa Querência 2012 with a score of 224).

131814 9331268947

SJ RODOPIO (*2002) is a son of BT MOURO (BRAZIL) that comes from LA INVERNADA HORNERO (CHILE), and also have in its pedigree BELLAVISTA TAIMADO (CHILE) and DON FAUSTO (CHILE).

In conclusion, it appears that all of these three fathers (Duque do Caijaara, Joio do Infinito, SJ Rodopio) wich were successful in Reining have fathers from Brazil and both father and mother of these three stallions are have famous functional Chilean bloodlines.

More interesting Data on these champions:

Criollos are not tall horses. The normal standard of the breed admits horses between 138 cm and 148 cm. The average height of these 11 Criollos at the age of 3 years was 140,9 cm, and for instance, Craque Marca dos Santos at this age was only 139,5 cm!

The average score of these 11 Criollos in the qualifying competition of the 2016 ANCR Reining Futurity in Brazil was 208,9 (between 201 and 218).

There were 8 geldings, 2 stallions and 1 mare. The TOP 3 Criollos participating to the qualifying session were: 1 gelding, 1 stallion, 1 mare.

The average percentage of pure Chilean blood in the parental generations 1-4 of these 11 criollos was 47,2% (between 25 and 82,5%). Craque Marca dos Santos has for instance 31,25% of Chilean blood in the parental generations 1-4.

Regarding Pedigrees, Andrea identified that 58% of the pedigrees in the parental generations 1-4 have famous functional bloodlines. From those, 76% are from Chile, 5% from Argentina and 19% from Brazil.

10 Criollos of these 11 Criollos descend from La Invernada Hornero, and 3 of them even twice!

All of the Criollos with the TOP 5 scores have fathers with success in Reining.

Andreas established hereunder a list of the TOP functional bloods/Sires based on the pedigrees of the 11 criollos taking into account the parental generations 1-4. The number indicates how often each stallion appears in the pedigrees of the 11 Criollos subject of this study.

The ( C ) refers to Chile and (B) to Brazil, countries of origin of these stallions.

Muchacho De Santa Angélica is bred in Brazil with pure Chilean ancestors.

This is a complete list of all bloodlines occurring at least twice in between the 11 pedigrees of horses subject to this study.

Children and Criollo Foals, a unique experience!

20992874 10208191275574175 7843482129546035446 n

During the week-end of August 19th, in Uruguay, at Martin Gurmendez's place, Cabaña el Chamane, a very special Course with foals and children took place, in order to manipulate and make the foals more familiar to the contact with humans. 15 young girls and boys from 11 to 16 years old participated to the course, with their own foal. Every foals used for this course were complitly wild and had never been touch by humans. After 2 days training with the foals and children, Martin Gurmendez aknowledged that they all reached amazing results! 

Clementaina Sartori who participated to the course and published many photos on her facebook page, explianed with details her feelings and experience:  

"Curso dictado por Los Pingos Marcelo Gonzalez, quien nos demostró que la manera tradicional en acercarse a un potrillo ya no es tan útil como la manera racional. En estos dos días se aprendió muchisima cosa, se aclararon dudas, se abrió un abanico de posibilidades para situaciones diferentes. Parece bobo que alguien haga un "curso de amanse de potrillos", pero realmente no lo es, ya que lo que se trabaja cuando se comienza la doma es el fruto del trabajo en su primer contacto. Sin violencia, sin ansiedades, sin apurarnos. Creo yo que la gran mayoría quedó extremadamente satisfecho con el trabajo hecho. Trabajo en equipo e individual hicieron la diferencia desde el sábado de mañana a el domingo a la tarde. Nuevamente un lugar donde se respetó al otro durante la convivencia, rondas de chistes, juegos y guitarreada, se compartieron opiniones y sobre todo se ayudó cuando alguien lo necesitaba.

Sin más palabras que aportar, nomas digo que se venga otro curso! "

A unique experience that should be repeated!
