Dr. Kate Barcelos was in Canada presenting her paper at an Equine Conference and stayed on to complete another ABCCMM inspection, the second one in Canada!
Dana Johnsen, USMMA Board Member at Large, organized an Open House around the event and Marchadors from Alberta and British Columbia joined in! Additional invitations and participation from people who wanted to see, meet and ride a Marchador. It looked like a great event.
Kate also visited other breeders in Colorado, Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan before heading home to Brazil.
ABCCMM inspection is a prerequisite for dual ABCCMM (Brazilian) registration. It is not required for USMMA registration.
