The Peruvian horse is undoubtedly the smoothest riding horse in the world, due to it’s inherent and completely natural four beat lateral gait. Over 400 years of isolation in Peru has kept the purity of the breed and so it has become a unique entity in the equine kingdom.

When you learn about the Peruvian Horse, many terms such as “Termino” “Reach” “Overreach” and “Pisos” are often heard. Brio or “Energy combined with a willingness to work” is another important topic. Confirmation, beauty, and arrogance are all important, as well as many other traits, that when combined produce an exceptional horse that is a pleasure for all, young or old, to ride and enjoy.

Please enjoy the website and feel free to contact anyone on the board or any of the ranches listed if you have any questions.
