The breeching that guy is using, looks like what they used in trotter/pacer races. It is never attached to a western saddle. I doubt that PP is 17hands, unless the rider is a giant. The horse looks uncomfortable under saddle and not particularly going properly for a Paso. I saw no termino at all.
What even is that contraption?? I've never seen anything like that. What is it used for?
Those would be hobbles(sometimes called hopples) that we use on pacers at the Standarbred track. The idea behind them is to help stop a horse from breaking a pace. If a horse breaks out of a pace during a race it is DQ'd and must go through a Qualifier again to go back to racing.
okay I have never heard of a 16-17 hand pure peruvian paso. If there is please correct me. I am not very well read in equipment for pacers or any other gaited horses. But I am pretty sure that thing is not supposed to be on a peruvian paso....

I am selling my 4yr old stallion I am asking $1500 OBO.
Height: about 16 ½ - 17 hands
Gender: Male (Stud)
He is broken, trailer loads, lunges etc.
This is a great horse probably the best stud a person could own. He is a very quiet stud I don't have any problems with him being around mares, if you didn't know you would probably think he was a gelding.
All he needs is someone who has time to ride him, the only reason I am getting rid of him is because I am transferring for my job and I am unable to find a place I can keep him. I hate to sale him but he needs a better home and someone who will ride him and take good care of him.
Not sure about the size, but it's pretty common that people estimate the size of their horses way off.
As for the equipment - I have seen that used for Paso Finos to enhance their fifth gait, not sure how it's called (seen it in Germany and know only the German name). It is traditionally used in Peru.
And it looks nothing like what feathered feet posted. What she posted only went behind. This thing attaches to all of his legs like what nb said pacer hobbles (hopples?) I'm not an expert on gaiteds or anything. This is just what I see. If I'm wrong please feel free to educate. Posted via Mobile Device
