peruvian paso

The breeding stock for the Peruvian Paso link back to the horses brought to Peru during the Spanish Conquest but mostly after Peru became the Viceroyalty of Peru ,the richest and most powerful center of Spain's New World colonies in the eighteenth century. With this came some of the finest Spanish breeding stock.

The Peruvian Paso is a breed of horse considered to be the smoothest riding horse on earth. It is distinguished by a uniquely natural and efficient gait called the paso llano which is a lateral four beat gait. The breed's ancestors came from Spain and included a mixture of Barb, Spanish Jennet, and the Andalusian. The breed was refined and carefully bred in Peru over several centuries making for a purebred that has roots to the once populous naturally gaited horses of Spain.
