Peruvian Paso Horse Exhibition

Explore the Peruvian tradition of paso horse riding during this tour. You’ll visit a beautiful estate in the Lurín Valley to learn about this tradition.

*This tour takes places at the private estate house of “Casa Hacienda los Ficus,” which is set in the lovely Lurín Valley. In the estate’s beautiful gardens, a skilled horsewoman or horseman will introduce you to the world of the Peruvian *paso horse. This breed of horse has particular body proportions and is known for its side walk, or paso llano, from which its name originates—these are some of the smoothest riding horses in the world. The breed emerged from the northern regions of Peru and is now protected by the Peruvian government. Paso hoses have also been declared a Cultural Heritage of the Nation by the National Institute of Culture (INC).

While here you will learn about the history of this noble animal. You will see newly born horses, horses being trained to use a bridle, and adult horses. You’ll appreciate the typical garments that the horses wear and learn why these horses are so valued by the Peruvian people. Finally, you’ll get a chance to ride one of these horses yourself—get ready for the smoothest ride of your life. Lunch is also included.

This tour lasts 4.5 hours.
