The Peruvian Paso, often known as the Peruvian Horse, is a light saddle horse that is recognized for its smooth ride. It is distinguished by the paso llano, a four-beat lateral stride. The Peruvian government has declared this breed as a National Cultural Heritage by the National Institute of Culture.
This breed has notably unique body proportions and a characteristic ambling stride or “paso llano” because to their 400-year seclusion and the selection undertaken by their parents. It’s typical of the country’s northern Peruvian regions, where it first appeared. The horse is medium-sized, standing between 14.1 and 15.2 hands tall, and has an appealing yet muscular appearance. The Peruvian horse has a deep chest, a thick neck, and a strong body with little hound gutting in the flank area.
