The Peruvian Horse is born with a smooth, natural way of going stamped into their genetic heritage by hundreds of years of selective breeding. Peruvians are shown barefoot – the gait cannot be influenced by weighted or other special shoes.
The smooth gait and tractable temperament make Peruvian Horses an ideal choice for the rider who wants to avoid the discomfort of a trot. The quieter horses are ideal for the adult novice, while the fiery individuals are a thrill for even the most experienced rider. We look forward to working with you.
When you ask what makes a Peruvian Horse different from many other breeds, the concept of “brio” is likely to be one of the first things that come up. Wikipedia defines brio as “quality of being spirited, active, or alive and vigorous” or another word for “the force of life”.
