Sweet, SMOOTH, 13-yr-old,registered full Peruvian gelding for sale. Great favorite of my children growing up. Would not be selling except they have all grown up and gone to the city. :-( Great temperament but not quite "kid-broke" since he hasn't been ridden regularly for a while. I would like to place him in a home where the great Peruvian attributes will be experienced and appreciated: calm with "Brio," smooth riding, good endurance. He can be a little "skittish" when first approached by a stranger after a long patch of no riding but settles down quickly under a firm hand and is "good to go" for anyone with confident horsemanship.... (read more) Beautiful stature. Will make others "Jealous" on the trail. $3600 Cash
Breed info includes:
Characteristics: The Peruvian Horse has the same type of four-beat gait as the Paso Fino, however, the slower gait is called the paso llano and the faster, more lateral gait is the sobreandando. The Peruvian Horse also has a unique way of moving called the “termino,” where the horse lefts his knee up high and swings the hoof outward. The Peruvian Horse is said to possess a natural brilliance and energy, which enthusiasts call “brio.” The breed is medium-sized, more muscular and bolder in appearance than the Paso Fino, and stands from 14.1 to 15.2 hands high. "Often called the smoothest breed in the world." Great for people with back issues.
Profile: Although the Peruvian Horse, sometimes referred to as the Peruvian Paso, and the Paso Fino share the same earlier parentage (Andalusian, Barb and Spanish Jennet), and are both gaited, they are not the same breed. The Peruvian Horse’s ancestors were brought to Peru from the Iberian Peninsula by conquistadors and further developed there without the influence of foreign breeds. The horses are prized pleasure riding mounts and are also found in traditional ranch work. The Peruvian Horse is the National Horse of Peru.
