Every year I ride in a peruvian horse festival. These horses are SO amazing to ride and so beautiful! It's really great fun, and they are fabulous trail partners because they have great dispositions and they don't trot! They gait and you don't have to post, so incredibly comfortable to ride!
The festival and shows are really fun because we get to put on the authentic clothes!

With no further ado...

The three horses we brought in, I'm riding the roan on the far right




My guy, 10 year old Roan gelding, Valador



He was being a bit bad in this picture, but I love it


True love! one of the sweetest horses I have ever met


My riding coach's husband, Norm, and his 9 year old Palimino gelding, Milagro


Just a stunning horse



This class is really fun! they have it with all the gaited horse classes! it's called a champagne class, and they give you a glass of champagne to hold in one hand, and you ride with just one hand, and they ask you to do a series of maneuvers, whoever has the most in the glass at the end wins!!! Norm won this class! I came in fourth!


And finally, my coachs 3 year old, flaxen chesnut stallion. He was amazing, he has only been broke for 3 months, he had just bred mares in the past month and he hasn't been broke to bit yet (peruvian horses start being ridden bitless for a year). He was incredibly well behaved! though we didn't put him in any classes where there were mares.

He is so stunning and well bred....



Here is some of the detail on the bit and saddle....





And finally at the end of the day all done!


Thanks for looking!

Thanks for sharing! We have a gal at the barn who owns a Paso Fino, he outwalks everyone [so do all gaited horses] but he's a great trail partner for her other than the fact she has a hard time finding people who can keep up with her!

I ride with a gal who has a Rocky Mountain horse, I think for long distance riding a gaited horse is the way to go. I know her butt feels a lot better than mine at the end of the day :p

Lise, those are beautiful pictures and you are cute as a button as usual. Was this something the public could attend and if so, why didn't you let me know! I love horses and would have loved to go.

Thanks for sharing those gorgeous pictures. I'm also a sucker for palominos.

Wow, the horses are beautiful.
I used to ride when I was young. My grandpa kept Arabian horses. Looking through your photos made me miss it terribly.
All three of the horses are gorgeous! And you look good, too.

Sounds like a lot of fun! Your horse is beautiful. The two of you look great together. I know what ya mean about gaited horses...ya never have to worry about getting a sore butt
I have a TWH...like most gaited horses, very smooth. I do make him walk at a normal slow pace sometimes though, so I can trail ride with all the horses in the area.

Very beautiful. If I can remember, does not that breed of horse have a special sort of walk? But how pretty!

yes, they don't trot, they 'gait' it's 4 beats instead of the two beat trot, most of them don't canter, some do.

The peruvian horse gait is called paso llano, very comfortable
