The aim of this study was estimate genetic, environmental and phenotypic correlations between movement and conformation traits in Mangalarga horses, in Brazil. The data were provided by Brazilian Association of Mangalarga Horses Breeders, comprised 9865 observations for movement and conformation traits. The data were organized by SAS, and the (co)variance components were estimated by the program MTGSAM. The heritabilities estimates varied from 0.22 (shoulder) to 0.29 (limbs), and the genetic correlations ranged from 0.51 (movement and neck) to 0.31 (movement and limbs).
