Talking Peruvian paso

He's so goofy looking.
And that's like a horsey bowl cut. Poor mane.

Lol.. Name his flaws please xD

Yay a gaited breed I am familiar with! I trained a PP, easiest horse ever to train, but I was bored quickly with the paddling & the weird canter, but smooth city for sure. Ok your boy, could be just the picture, but he has no "brio", as these horses tend to have a common head, they need that presense to pull it off and make that head look like it belongs. He has an upside down neck, but his shoulder is perfect for the breed, slants nicely and long! Nice heartgirth, his back is on the long side, croup is sloped nice. Now onto the worst part of this horse & it's breed in general, the hind end, it's angulation makes this breed very suspectible to hock problems, I was told by the breeder it's common, sorry cannot remember the name she called it. Anyways, I was told not to ride a PP on hills & mountains, but gee, these guys are from Peru, the Andes? Hello? Oh well, just passing on the info. I am sure your horse is as smooth as silk and his coat is very slick. Again, could just be the picture, maybe once under saddle, he arches his neck, paddles, and is full of "brio"!

Thanks you !
He has what I think is called a.. Fallen crest ? The top of his neck lays over.
And is floppy lol.
But when i'm riding him he can stand it up and it looks so muscular it looks like a fjords neck, it's arched.

That is the brio, he has it. These horses tend to come alive under saddle, rather common looking goofing off in the pen, but when they are paddling it's a different story! You may think you are moving to beat the band as you can feel those legs going a mile a minute but have someone ride your horse, and look at their shoulders, head, etc, no movement! Also a cool thing to try is the champagne glass, ride your horse holding a glass of liquid (doesn't have to be champagne, water will do), you won't spill a drop unless YOUR hand is unsteady.

Yeah he's a ball of energy.
Very forward going. But controllable with it.
There's times he will be really collected, under himself. He will have his neck arched and head in, and be taking huge steps, that are super smooth and be getting no where lol. But he can also 'trot' as fast as the other horses canter.
Super sensitive. I just trail ride on him though

What is your horse's name? Did you give him a Spanish one? The horse I trained was registered as "Helada Roja", means red ice, she was red roan. All her traits are exactly as you described with your horse.

His registered name is El Bandito MDA
I have his papers. Maybe they are related.
I think his neck falling may have to to with being over weight before I got him ? Idk it's always been this way. But the fact he can stand it up, having it look like all muscle and gorgeous kinda strange . The veins even show in his neck when he's working and has it stood up.

When someones on him coming strait for you, he looks huge. Riding him he has tons of presence and looks like a super show horse.
In the pasture.. He's ugly.
But he's cool

He's not ugly by any means, just plain, but under saddle is where it counts anyways! Looking forward to more pics of your boy, I am loving him already!
    06-17-2012, 04:41 PM
Well that neck and his withers just bug me. I might post more pics in the pictures section

Green Broke
He's built really interesting, but what would worry me the most is his hind end. There is something that pasos get where there their suspensory tendons can drop.......DSLD or something along those lines. Because he's standing camped under, I would kind of worry about his hind end. That stance (at least based on this one photo) makes him look like he's uncomfortable.

I dunno, I am not a vet. But I would always be afraid to get a paso for that reason. But I worry too much I must admit!
