MAIN ADVANTAGES OF THE PERUVIAN PASO BREED OVER OTHER SADDLE BREEDS (NATIVE HORSY BREED OF PERU):
 
1.- Of its virtues, the most outstantding is the smoothness which the rider enjoys, known as "piso" (gait). This is a unique, inherited, completely natural four beat lateral gait, movement by which the horses' center of gravity is translated forward and not upwards as in trotting horses.
 
 
Known as the "paso llano" the gait is a type of broken pace. Peruvian breeders give great emphasis to "termino" which is akin to swimmer's arm motions in which the forelegs roll forward and towards the outside (in elevated motion) before making ground contact, allowing for the rear legs to advance sooner and farther (in a motion that is as close to the ground as possible). The gait can be as slow as a walk or as fast as an extended trot or slow canter and is completely natural (not induced or aided in any way by artificial training and devices).
Because of its incredibly smooth ride, the Peruvian Paso Horse is know as the "Rolls Royce" ride

2.- If is not necessary to be a riding a professional to enjoy a good ride. As mentioned, because the gait is inbred and inherited, movements are natural, as opposed to other breeds.

3.- Cooperative attitude and even temperament are widespread in the breed as they have been looked for and treasured for over 400 years as breed characteristics.

4.- It can be ridden with any type of riding gear without affecting the quality of the ride.

5.- It was selected as a travelling horse which made its resistance to fatigue fundamental.

6.- It was designed to be ridden without aides, so its size is ideal for the rider's comfort.

7.- The rider - horse combination is the most elegant, making the rider not only elegant but also a gentleman or lady when riding.

8.-Because Peru has 108 micro - climates this breed is adaptable to any weather conditions.

9.- Because it is a breed that bases its genetic excellence in selection from within and not in the outcross with other breeds.

10.- Because, due to its docility, gentle disposition, natural movements and confortable ride they made be ridden by men and women of any age without risk to the rider.
