The study aimed to compare the morphometric measures of the current herd Mangalarga Marchador (MM) female with champions breed, using as parameters the breed standard and the Eclectic System of Proportions for saddle horse. The experimental design was randomized, and the treatments were the current herd MM female, represented by all mares registered between 2000 and 2012 that had your measurements stored in the database service studbook of breed, totaling 51993 animals, and the champions breed, represented by 266 mares champions. Were evaluated measures of height at withers and at rump, length of the head, neck, dorse, rump, shoulder and body, width of head and of rump, thoracic perimeter and cannon perimeter. The mean linear measurements were related to the length of the head, according to Eclectic System of Proportions. The results were submitted to analysis of variance and the means were compared by Fisher's test (p<0.05). Regarding the current herd of females MM, the champions breed showed greater length of the head, body, neck, dorse and rump, height at withers and at rump, width of rump and thoracic and cannon perimeter. It was concluded that although larger, the champions Mangalarga Marchador mares are proportionally similar to the current herd.(AU)
