The Peruvian Paso horses exhibited at this show are the results of long selective breeding based on the function required by the haciendas of coastal Peru. The owners and managers of these large haciendas needed a horse that was comfortable to ride and strong enough to carry its rider over long distances as they surveyed the crops. The number of horses needed by this limited market and the geographic isolation of coastal Peru resulted in only the very best horses used for breeding. The Peruvians did not export these horses until the 1970s. The Peruvian Paso performs a 4 beat gait with an energetic attitude that is the smoothest among the world's equine breeds. They are exciting in the show ring but also make great trail horses.You are invited to stop by to see these special horses compete using traditional tack and attire.
