Welcome to the World – Leia do Summerwind!

Born April 1st, 2017, the much awaited and anticipated foal of Arun de Maripa x Azenha de Maripa, arrived.   And it’s a GIRL!  LEIA!   We are overjoyed!

A beautiful and correct filly, she is a pure Maripa, a bloodline is a mix of Abaiba, Bela Cruz and Herdade.   In the sire,  Arun de Maripa is also added Favacho and Tabatinga blood from his ELITE sire Favacho Diamante.  It is a wonderful blend!

Named Leia do Summerwind by the Future Foal breeders, Elizabeth and DJ Sims of Silver Stables Marchadors in Phoenix AZ.    They also own Jedi-Knight do Summerwind and now Leia, along with Gralha M.U.G.,  provide them the foundation for their breeding program and she stays part of the FUTURE FOAL network.

Arun de Maripa (imported frozen semen)  has sired one other filly in CA named Gemini do Dreamcatcher.

Azenha de Maripa has produced 4 offspring – in Canada, Beethoven do Summerwind (x La Paz Jivago), in AZ, Hawke do Summewind ( x Ximoio de Maripa),  in UT, Hemingway do Summerwind  (x La Paz Jivago) and now in AZ,  Leia do Summerwind (x Arun de Maripa.

Pictures of Leia from Day 1 to 2 weeks!  Enjoy!




The Mane Event, Westworld May 26-28

Imported MM mare Gralha M.U.G and D.J. Sims of Silver Stables Marchadors.

Mangalarga Marchador horses will be there at the MANE EVENT!

The USMMA will have an association booth and local Summerwind and Future Foal breeders will be bringing their horses.   They and other USMMA members will be manning the association booth.   It’s a great place to come and meet a Marchador!

Besides information at the booth, we are hoping for ring time to present the Marchador breed, speaker time and also photo-op time! Come to the barns and meet a Marchador.

Here is some more information about the event and how to get tickets:

The Mane Event Scottsdale May 26-28, 2017 will be the first annual event at the world class facility of WestWorld at Scottsdale.  This venue allows the all equine trade show, one arena, the lecture/demo area and the Round Pen to be under one air conditioned roof. While we do have one arena outside it is also under a roof and we will have water misters to help keep the attendees cool.

Over the last 13 years at other locations The Mane Event has hosted some of the best and most knowledgeable horse trainers and educators from North America and beyond! We pride ourselves on providing education on cutting edge training methods, equine health, equine entertainment and of course one of the largest and most diverse equine only trade show for your shopping pleasure.

Come and experience what our attendees call “The Mane Event”

L** foal do Summerwind is coming in November!

Interested in Owning or Investing in a Marchador?  L** foal do Summerwind is available for full or partial reservation now!  Often, our foals are sold before they are born.  If you are thinking about this  Future Foal, let us know!

For Full Ownership, reserve for $9,000 – payment plans available.    For investment or partial ownership, contact us for options that might work for you.

Thinking ahead!  To be born in AZ in November 2017, (Marchadors use real birthdays, not January 1!), this foal will be ready to go around May 2018.

A full sibling to Jedi-Knight do Summerwind, pictured here, this foal has a 25% chance of black or black tobiano (like his sire) or blue roan tobiano or blue roan (like his dam).   We expect this foal to mature at 15 hands and have a smooth gait.


Isabelle – IZZY!  is a 14.2H  blue roan mare, the daughter of 2 imported Marchador horses.   She is so beautiful with an exquisite head and look about her.   So much fun to ride! –  A Marcha batida gait that is both fast and smooth.   Lots of confidence that she passed on to her first foal Jedi-Knight.   We are expecting the same results in this baby.  To read more about Izzy and to see more photos, follow this link:   AZ – Isabelle do Great Lakes.

Talisma Kafe is the sire using imported frozen semen from Brazil.   Talisma has had 4 foals here in North America and all of them have been spectacular!    We are expecting the same here; it’s in his genes.   Talisma is the son of JB stallion Palhaco de Ituvavera, who produced so many Brazilian champions – Elo Kafe de Nova, Tiguaro Kafe are 2 of the top ones.   His name in the pedigree is gold.

Talisma is a stunning black and white tobiano stallion.  Sweet and gentle, he has a marcha picada or center gait.   His offspring is winning in the show ring in mostly marcha picada classes.    For more information and photos on Talisma, follow this link:  Talisma Kafe

img_0047Learn how to evaluate and judge the Mangalarga Marchador breed.    A learning clinic where everyone participates!



Morning Classes – Horses under saddle or in-hand (youngsters welcome).

  • Marchador geldings – gait
  • Marchador mares – gait

Afternoon classes:  Horses in-hand:

  • Marchador geldings – conformation
  • Marchador mares – conformation

At this time, we have no plans for a stallion division, but can easily add one if you wish to participate with your Marchador stallion.

Depending on the horses entered, there may be 2 divisions in gait for marcha picada and marcha batida.

In Brazil, there are 5 judges in the arena.   The highest and lowest scores are discarded and the middle 3 are added together and averaged to come up with the winner of the event.    We will have 2 judges, plus the auditors to complete the scoring.   After each class, we will announce the results and the judges will go through their evaluation of the horses with why they scored them as they did and what attributes of each horse are the best.

Before or during the class, the judge may ask to ride each horse and/or help the rider with how to improve the gait of their horse.
