Of all the horses breeds I have tried in my life, Peruvians are the best. Wonderful smooth gait, easy to train, not stubborn, sound, good feet, hardy. I could go on and on. I ride mine in a simple rope bridle most of the time and I feel perfectly safe. I am a 60 year old woman of 200 pounds so I do not want anything bronky. Unfortunately through the years I have collected more of them than I can ride.
I am located in Oklahoma and I decided to sell some of my herd. They are great horses but I cannot ride 10. I would happily ride any one of my horses and I do. They are ridden on trails and have good set in gait, great ground manners, and no bad habits. I give riding lessons to children on my Peruvians. Some are more placid in nature and some are hotter but none are spooky.
