Leia do Summerwind is a smaller, but strikingly elegant and stunning Marchador mare. To see her move is poetry in motion and everyone stops to watch! She will take your breath away!

Her personality and intelligence are instantly apparent. She is a powerful presence and at a young age, a lot of energy that would serve her well in endurance or any competitive discipline. She seems to be almost a carbon copy of her dam, Azenha de Maripa, but with gait influences from Arun de Maripa, with his flashy high stepping.

Arun de Maripa

The Maripa farm in Brazil is known for breeding beautiful animals and also for focusing on long distance, high energy sport horses – for over 30 years!. Leia is a great example of their breeding philosophy.  The Maripa genetics are very strong.    

Leia is a daughter of the similarly striking Azenha de Maripa and Arun de Maripa. Azenha is the daughter of Laio de Maripa, an ELITE book stallion in Brazil. Arun de Maripa is the son of Favacho Diamante, also and ELITE book stallion bred to a Maripa mare. Her pedigree and bloodline are unique in the U.S.   Leia is a mix of Favacho, Tabatinga, Herdade and Abaiba, all traditional bloodlines in Brazil.  For more information on the Mangalarga Marchador bloodlines, jump to this page:  MM Bloodlines.
