Please visit our new website FUTURE FOAL!
We are passionate enthusiasts for the Mangalarga Marchador breed and the natural methods for raising horses, training and hoof care. After we retired and moved west, we discovered the Marchador, fell in love and began this new venture. We have learned much about life and leadership from living with our horses. Every life should be touched by a horse - it's never too late!
We are a private ranch dedicated to establishing the Marchador breed here. The Marchador is the ultimate Brazilian saddle horse! With roughly 250 Marchador horses in North America today, we are proud to an early importers of live animals and frozen semen. Initially buying for breeding, we selected the best mares we could find and imported them in foal to top Brazilian stallions. We believe strong genetics matter, so we researched bloodlines for years and made sure we saw foal crops of our selected horses, not just the horse alone.
Summerwind (SW) strives to promote this unique and quality breed in several ways.
