I love my peruvian cross, I have heard (from a peruvian breeder, and a peruvian trail rider) that Peruvians have a tendency to come up lame for periods of time, however my peruvian cross has never had lameness issues and we ride barefoot in the mountains
It also gives them great necks and my horses tail is like 20lbs and I cut about 2-4inches off every month and it consistently grows down to the ground

Great to hear all of your comments on the Peruvian Horse. The Peruvians and the National Registry have dropped the "Paso" to eliminate the confusion with the Paso Fino, which has no relation to the Peruvian Horse. Yes, I do own a wonderful Peruvian Horse, 10 year old gelding. They are smart, magnificent, easy to train. The gait is a genetic gait, which they do from birth. Saw a foal last summer, gaiting around her mother at 18 hours old. If you really would like to learn more about the Peruvian Horse, go on to the NAPHA website, which is the national registry. Also, the website, Peruvian Horse World, has an international forum, where you can talk to owners, breeders, and trainers, all over the world. There are many great breeders of the Peruvian Horse in the US. The breeding standards are very specific, and regulated. In Peru, this horse is protected by the Peruvian government. Sort of like the Bald Eagle in the US. Because this horse is considered a "Luxury" horse, the breeders pride themselves on producing the best and avoiding some of the genetic anomalies that lead to dysfunction down the road. Al of the Peruvian Horse Shows are sponsored by NAPHA. Once again, no backyard shows (and very little backyard breeding) for the "Luxury" horse. They do have "Brio" which is a controlled energy, a willingness to work and please. I have ridden several Peruvians, from champion stallions, to mares, and geldings. They do aim to please. They are not a one person horse. Nothing is weird about the tack. I use both Peruvian tack and Aussie tack. My best horse friend rides her 3 in dressage tack. Several of my friends us well-fitting western tack. Well-fitting is the key. Don't fear the Peruvian horse. If he/she is well breed, from a responsible breeder, they are amazing. I guess we get what we pay for, and "Luxury" is not cheap. Enjoy your ride.

My Peruvian pasos is easy to catch. Easy going. Not spooky. Just about bomb proof.
Either I got lucky orr..
