Astrud is a 13 year old grey mare with a wonderful marcha and personality that likes to please – just like a Marchador! She is the daughter of Tabatinga Monitor x Pupila de Itajoana, bred by my good friend Tresa Smith in Montana. Affectionately nicknamed Strudle, she will make a great riding horse, but we’d prefer to see her produce a few foals too. We will be breeding her in late fall to early spring if she is not sold. Astrud and/or a foal from Astrud is offered for sale to the perfect owner.
Call us now if you are that perfect person for Astrud or her foal. If you want to come meet her – the best pricing is in September and October!
Even though we have known her since she was a foal herself, she just arrived in Arizona so we are getting to ride her for the first time and taking it slowly. But everything we have seen, we like! We are in a partnership with her owner to offer her for sale. She has had one foal, Gabriel do Dreamcatcher, so she has been busy for the last year or so.
The videos are Elizabeth Sims, Silver Stables, and the first ride after she arrived in AZ.
We love company! And riding together! We did stay safe during this COVID year.
We hope you will come visit next summer and meet our Summerwind Marchadors!
D.j.’s wedding, the Kid’s Camp, the Women’s Retreat, Cathy’s visit, Jason’s visit, Aline’s visit, Lucy’s family riding, Sayra’s visit, D.j’s family riding and all the regulars too!
The women were awesome – everyone had a personal best or breakthrough moment.
Watch for a new thought process is our teaching – called ADAPTIVE TRAINING. I will be writing about this for months to come. It was our breakthrough moment.
Enjoy the pictures!

A Silver Stables event held at Summerwind Marchadors in Pagosa Springs CO. D.j. Sims, the instructor, tailors the camps to the interests and riding abilities of the students. The first day is matching the horse and rider and sometimes trying 2 or 3 horses before we have a fit! Then the students get to know the horse they will be riding for the majority of the time – in the arena, on the meadow course and out on trails.
