Westworld will be host to several horse shows that weekend, so many arenas going, many things to see and do. And holiday or horse shopping!

Summerwind Marchadors is a show sponsor, and we will have a booth at the show all weekend. Please stop by! The USMMA, the Marchador association will also be represented well by the USMMA Southwest Region and USMMA breeders.

You can meet a Marchador and many Marchador people gathered there to show, to man the booth or to that come to cheer. Head for an arena or barn to see the horses! A fun way to spend the day.

July Summer Camps

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.
