Gaia do Summerwind made history when she was born – our first Marchador born from imported Brazilian semen.   Oma de Maripa stamped her in his image and she is one big, strong Marchador mare.    Striking to look at, many people will approach to find out what breed she is if she is at a show or event.   Gaia has a sweet disposition and lots of confidence that she will pass on to her foals.

Breed to Gaia for great results – for looks, for temperament, for strong conformation and a pleasing gait.   Gaia has been competing with her owner in Working Equitation and pleasing visitors and guests to the ranch by posing for photos!

Gaia was a Future Foal do Summerwind for owner Adrienne C. Scheck, PhD. , Beshert Ranch, who offers her for breeding the next generation.


No matter what stallion is paired with her, we expect to be impressed!

Gaia’s pedigree shows a mix of bloodlines:  Maripa (a blend of Abaiba, Bela Cruz and  Herdade),  L.J. (JB derivative), Tabatinga and Mar.  She is the granddaughter of ELITE stallions and mares on both sides of her pedigree.
