2013 SW Award Program

About the Program

SW Awards recognize your efforts to promote this awesome Marchador breed using a Summerwind Marchador (bred, sold or imported).  Getting our horses out into the limelight in national or local all-breed events is not only fun, it helps others to see the quality, versatility and performance of the MM breed.  Any horse purchased from Summerwind, their foals or the product of a breeding from or to a Summerwind horse is eligible.

Cash and Prize Awards – Awards are based on points earned between January 1 and December 31 of that year.

Cash Awards 1-4 Points 5-10 Points Over 10 Points
Rider Logo Shirt * $50 $100
Breeder Logo Shirt * $100 $200
Owner Logo Shirt * $250 $500

NOTE: The points are calculated with one point for completing an event.  An additional point will be granted if the horse finished in the top three.  An additional point is also granted for every 25 miles if the event is endurance or competitive trail.  

Report your events and categories (owner, rider, breeder) by email to info@summerwindmarchadors.com within one month of completing the event with some proof of completion.    We will track the points and periodically publish updates on the standings.
