Maybe that is what she is doing...Its hard to tell since I can't actually see her feet. It sure feels like a normal trot though =\

She just feels so clumsey, it feels like she's constantly changing her gait or switching leads or something.

Morning! If I remember correctly, you said you ride her bareback? If that's the case, it may be that you are not shifting your weight in the saddle and "Checking" her properly, in order to achieve the desired gait. A lot of times its not the horse that is moving wrong, its miscommunication between horse and rider.Try these things and see if it makes a difference! Good luck and most importantly, HAVE FUN!!!! :)

I just bought a half peruvian gelding and he is sooo smooth! They are also very dedicated to their riders.

Actually they are becoming more affordable! Many good Peruvians are going for $2000 to $3000.. They are beginning to come out of the show ring and on to the trails! They really cost no more then a good Gaming horse or trail horse... So Have at it!!!!!! And have fun!!!

I always thought the Paso Finos were the exspensive ones Peruvian Paso are popular trail horses.

@Annaleah..... Yes I do know of a breeder here in Wisconsin.... Her name is Bonnie Gjerseth. She owns "Black River Peruvians".... She is a great lady and will work with you to match you up with just the right horse. She has many to choose from of all ages and training levels. If she doesn't have one to suit you she will find one from another breeder. She does this out of her love of the breed. You can find her at blackriverperuvians.com......

@ Thyme..Well, actually both breeds are/were expensive. I think with the economy the way it is, ALL horse prices are coming down. I have ridden both breeds and found that the Peruvian Horse is more well suited to me. I like the personality better. Although the Paso Fino's are nice too! I ride everyday at least 10 miles and more on the weekends. I've yet to tire my little mare! I love her and her gait is heaven sent! Just my humble opinion!!!! :)
