Peruvian Paso horses

Webster's Dictionary defines “luxury” as, “the use and enjoyment of the best, most precious things offer the most physical comfort and satisfaction.” Luxury may be the single best word in the English language to describe the Peruvian Paso horses. There is something for everyone in this elegant animal: smooth riding comfort, high energy, straight, stamina, intelligence, a tractable disposition, animated, flashy presence, and 100% natural action which sets the Peruvian apart from others.

The Peruvian Paso horses transmit its unique smooth gait to its purebred foals. No artificial devices or special training aids are necessary to enable the horse to perform its specialty, a natural four-beat footfall of medium speed that provides a ride of incomparable smoothness and harmony of movement along with the utmost ground covering ability within on sequence of footfalls. This signature gait is called “Paso Llano” and it is 100% unique.

In addition to an easy gait, the Peruvian Paso horses have brilliant front action movement. It is typified the upward lifting of the front legs combined with “término”, an outward movement of the front legs similar to the loose rolling of a swimmer’s arms doing the crawl. The lift and término are 100% natural. They are fluid, effortless, and well-integrated within the gait sequence.

Of all of the traits that distinguish the Peruvian Horse, the tremendous “brío” is perhaps the most prized by both expert and novice horse people alike. Brío is an inherent quality of a noble and willing spirit that enables these tractable horses to perform tirelessly for many hours in the service of his rider.

The Peruvian horses are the world’s greatest riding horses. They are smooth to ride, beautiful to behold, and have incredible brío - all traits that enable transportation. Peruvian horses excel in many aspects of pleasure riding: trail, competitive trail competition, team penning, sidesaddle, drill teams, musical exercise, and showing.

Physically, the Peruvian horses are horses of medium size and with a refinement. The ideal height is 14 hands tall, with good balance and almost even rations of girth, leg, and back. It may be in any color. The coat and skin are refined and the mane is long and abundant with fine, lustrous hair. The bone is refined but dense in all aspects, overall refinement, grace, and elegance.

The stallions exhibit the powerful arched neck and crest of their Iberian ancestors. Peruvian Horse breeders pay scrupulous attention to genetics, with the three primary qualities being gait, soundness, and disposition.

Tack

The traditional tack of the Peruvian Horse has remained true to his heritage, but they may be ridden in any type of tack that fits properly. The headgear, saddle, stirrups and “guarniciones” (trailgear) used today in shows are the traditional equipment imported from Peru, where it has evolved over hundreds of years. Although many people choose to show their horses in traditional tack, any style may be used. And of course, on the trail, anything goes!
