Summerwind Marchadors and Silver Stables teamed up to offer a July 4th weekend camp to young riding students of Silver Stables. What fun! We were happy we did this!
The girls had fun with many activities around town over the fourth – like the fireworks, the parade and the rodeo. During the day, they rode Marchador horses! We offered them many horses and matched horses to riders during the first day. In the program were seven Marchador horses: Artemis do Summerwind, Brasilia do Summerwind, Caboclo da Piedade, Caesar do Summerwind, Fidalgo do Summerwind, Jorge-Ben de Lazy T and Koyote Libertas.
Great riders! Great horses! They did arena work, outside course work, and trail riding, including the grand finale, a bareback trail ride. Great guests too – all staying in our barn apartment, like a giant sleepover.
We think we will offer this again! Our horses were never so well-groomed, lol.
Please help us pick the winning photographs! Send us the numbers you like via email or text – email@example.com or 602-999-3915

Brazilian breeders from Haras Avena and Haras do AP arrived in Arizona to celebrate the arrival of frozen semen from 2 of their stallions. We met the semen and Brazilian vet Caroline Lisboa at the airport and the weekend activities began! Hosting several dinners and also a barn tour of 4 Mangalarga Marchador barns, we all had a great time.
We will be adding these 2 stallions – Violeiro do Riomar and Carnaval Sao Lourenco – the first importation from Bahia state to the website in February. Watch for their announcements. Truly, they will add to the MM genetics here in North America.
Our thanks to Carlos Avena, Juliane Avena, Paulo Novoa, Ana Paula Novoa, Laura Patterson Rosa and Caroline Lisboa, who never gave up in this multi-year, international effort. Thanks to all the SW Future Foal breeders and owners who always give their support!
The North American Mangalarga Marchador Association will be there in booth 1401. We will be there doing demonstrations with the horses and talking about the breed in the breed pens. You are welcome in the barns as well.
