Taught and managed by D.j. Sims of Silver Stables, but using Summerwind Marchador horses mostly. This year a few people brought up their horses up for camp too! It was a full month of three-day events with kids that were experienced riders and kids that sometimes had little or no experience. We had one group from Arizona, and the others were “locals” – either vacationing or living here in Pagosa Springs.
Marchador horses and kids go together!
Thanks to D.j. and Elizabeth Sims for the time and effort into planning, driving, teaching and doing all the other activities that went into another success.
Here are some photos from the camps! The horses and the kids were awesome!!! Summerwind Marchadors used were Artemis do Summerwind, Caboclo da Piedade, Caesar do Summerwind, Hawke do Summerwind, Koyote Libertas. Joining us from Arizona were Fidalgo do Summerwind, Sabela da Tranquility, and Topsy, a very cute pony.

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.
Join us for a truly unique Marchador Experience in beautiful Pagosa Springs, Colorado! Spend your days galloping through beautiful meadows all while learning more about our favorite horses, the Marchadors!
Afternoons are extra horse sessions such as ground work finesse, acupuncture and other non-horse activities like our famous Hot Springs, Tubing the San Juan, Plein Air Painting, Thingamajig Theatre and much more!
