Peruvian Paso Horse

To gallop once in a while is good for any horse. It releases stress and improves suppleness. Without doubt there are other breeds that are faster at a gallop than the Peruvian horse, but speed has never been the essence of our breed. We are proud to have the ‘Rolls Royce’ of horses; smooth, luxurious and comfortable.

The Peruvian Paso horse or Paso Llano is a four-beat lateral gait of medium speed that provides a ride of incomparable smoothness and harmony of movement along with the utmost ground-covering ability. The Paso Llano is the preferred gait amongst Peruvian horsemen and the trademark of the Peruvian Paso horse. The Paso Llano, the term derived from Paso (step) and Castellano (Castile, historical region in Spain).

A well- trained Peruvian Paso horse that is well-collected can easily be ridden and guided with both reins in one hand. The use of soft hands is essential in our riding style. The relatively thick reins may feel a bit uncomfortable in the beginning, but it is not the reins that enable one to feel the horse’s mouth, it is the soft hands of the rider.
