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.
Meet Obi do Summerwind! Our newest baby horse, he is a black colt, born March 22, 2020.
Obi is the son of Jedi-Knight do Summerwind x Gralha M.U.G. 2019 was Jedi-Knight’s first year breeding and both foals born to-date seem to have his laid-back and confident personality and his excellent gait.
We are looking forward to watching Obi – love the MM babies!

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.
Born April 1st, 2017, the much awaited and anticipated foal of Arun de Maripa x Azenha de Maripa, arrived. And it’s a GIRL! LEIA! We are overjoyed!
A beautiful and correct filly, she is a pure Maripa, a bloodline is a mix of Abaiba, Bela Cruz and Herdade. In the sire, Arun de Maripa is also added Favacho and Tabatinga blood from his ELITE sire Favacho Diamante. It is a wonderful blend!
Named Leia do Summerwind by the Future Foal breeders, Elizabeth and DJ Sims of Silver Stables Marchadors in Phoenix AZ. They also own Jedi-Knight do Summerwind and now Leia, along with Gralha M.U.G., provide them the foundation for their breeding program and she stays part of the FUTURE FOAL network.
Arun de Maripa (imported frozen semen) has sired one other filly in CA named Gemini do Dreamcatcher.
Azenha de Maripahas produced 4 offspring – in Canada, Beethoven do Summerwind (x La Paz Jivago), in AZ, Hawke do Summewind ( x Ximoio de Maripa), in UT, Hemingway do Summerwind (x La Paz Jivago) and now in AZ, Leia do Summerwind (x Arun de Maripa.
