Luna is here! Her dam is Isabelle do Great Lakes, a beautiful blue roan Marchador mare. Also known as Izzy, she is owned by Karen Livesay and Randy Conilogue, breeding with us as Future Foal @ Sedona.
Her sire is Talisma Kafe, a black and white tobiano stallion, using imported frozen semen. The semen is from Haras Elfar, a prominent Marchador breeding farm in Brazil. Luna is the full sibling to Jedi-Knight do Summerwind, now 2 years old.
Everything we hoped for, and more! She has been reserved by Christine and Craig McNeil.
Congratulations to Christine and Craig! We are so impressed with your baby!
Christine writes ” I have a life-long love of horses and have ridden over the years as often and as much as possible. I have known for a very long time the incredible benefits of being around horses and the bond that can be had between horse and human. I also have a special interest in equine assisted therapy both for physical and psychological challenges. Now that my husband, Craig, and I are nearing retirement, I am able to realize my dream of owning horses. I focused my search on gaited horses and came across the Marchador breed and SummerWind Marchadors. We are purchasing our 2 horses through Future Foal and are very excited for the day we can bring them home to northern Wisconsin where we will be retiring.”
We can’t wait for you to come and see your new baby! She is stunning! And friendly! Below are some photos of Luna and her almost daily visitors since being born.
“A successful season has come to a close for this Saskatchewan Cowboy Dressage rider. The cold and snow has crept in and the horses will have a winter layoff now.
The season was fun and I feel I accomplished some good goals. Both of my Marchadors ended up competing after my mare Joia had to be laid off to an illness.
Joia has beautiful rhythm and this season received a bronze award and pin for her accomplishments. Beethoven went from the trail to the rail to the show arena in a blink of an eye as he stood in for Joia. Beethoven received some good marks in his dressage tests and was awarded a champion ribbon. Judges for the season were Kim Moats Canada and Lynn Ringrose Moe California for the finals.
Marchadors have lovely rhythmic movement and I encourage MM owners to give this sport a try.
Thank you to Jody Lynn Busch Horsemanship for her guidance.”

The event at Silver Stables is the first of the series Human Horse Sensing Horsemanship, a new way to being with horses.
In our time and age the horse has become a partner more than an instrument for work, but still lacks of freedom of movement, social interactions, and ability to freely express himself. In light of this reality, it is very apparent that the quality in the human and horse communication, and consequently their relationship is questionable. In response to this reality we created Human Horse Sensing, a way to relate that works with any individual, at any age, without the need of training. The method is designed to create horsemanship as a dynamic, and controllable process that efficiently supports human and horse in their interaction. Human Horse Sensing can be taught, and learned by clinics, or online course, and can support the communication, needed for all equestrian activities.
The USMMA benefits from this clinic being hosted by Summerwind Marchadors and Silver Stables as the clinician Alessandra Deerinck has offered to donate 10% of the proceeds to our association! Great fund raiser! Thank you all!
“In a time and age when most of us keep horses by choice, not by need, Human Horse Sensing is dedicated to teaching people who want to interact with them in a way that horses would choose to participate freely. Let us take you deeper than traditional training, and show you how to understand, learn, and play from your horse’s perspective.” — Alessandra Deerinck
