    There are Peruvian Training Centers if you would like a professionally trained gaited horse.  Although the gait is not taught, basic commands and respect are taught.  Peruvian Pasos are wonderful family horses.  Although each horse is an individual, there are many Peruvian Pasos that are babysitters for the trainers toddlers and other young children.  A safety helmet is recommended, EVERY RIDE, EVERY TIME, and adult supervision is required.  Horses are very large animals.  Even the smallest Peruvians are still 800 pounds!  That is a lot of animal to control, especially when they encounter the unknown.

    The Peruvian Paso is one of the smoothest four beat gaited horses in the world. Descended from the horses of the Conquistadors, Peruvian Paso horses possess the royal lineage of the noble Spanish breeds. A fiery spirit and gentle nature in a horse willing to work and just as eager to please. The Peruvian Paso horse is designed for the comfort and enjoyment of the rider. The gait of Peruvian Paso horse accounts for the smooth ride. It is a four beat lateral pattern with the footfalls being : right hind -- right front -- left hind -- left front.   The result is one of the smoothest rides of any breed of gaited horse. For riding pleasure, the ultimate trail and pleasure horse is the Peruvian Paso horse.  They are known as the Champagne Ride and you really can hold a glass of champagne and ride...without spilling a drop!

    Peruvian Pasos are extremely sure footed.  They can cover lots of territory in a short amount of time.  If you plan on riding 20 miles in a day, please condition your horse before you do it.  Peruvian Paso horses will go until they collapse.  They will give you everything they have, just to please you.  Please take that into consideration.  If you can hop off the couch, without doing any exercise, and run a marathon, great!  And be able to walk the next morning?  Same goes with your horse.  If you work them frequently, and feed them right, with fresh hay and clean, cool water, they will be happier and be able to go longer, and will be able to get up on the right side of the corral the next morning and do it all again!
