Horse of the Month for December, 2017 - The Peruvian

The Peruvian bred transfers its smooth gait to all 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. This breed also has incorporates a brilliant action typified by lift as the knee and fetlock flex, combined with “termino,” a movement of the front legs similar to the loose outward rolling of arms of a swimmer doing the crawl.

“Brio” and stamina give the Peruvian its willingness and ability to perform tirelessly for many hours and many miles in the service of its rider.

This breed offers riding comfort, strength and stamina for the avid trail rider; calm tractable disposition so important in the family mount; arrogant, flashy presence and action which set the exhibitor and parade rider apart from others, and investment potential solidly supported by its relative rarity and increasing popularity.

Physically, the Peruvian is a horse of medium size, usually standing between 14.1 and 15.2 hands tall, with a powerful build. Coloring characteristics are chestnut, black, brown, bay, buckskin, palomino, gray, roan or dun, with the solid colors, grays and dark skin considered most desirable. The mane is abundant with fine, lustrous hair that may be curly or straight.

The Peruvian horse was born entirely within the borders of the country for which it was named while the Paso Fino was developed in and around the Caribbean, Central and South America, the Peruvian became the “National Horse of Peru.”
