I have been in the Peruvian breed since 1978, when I bought a pregnant *Piloto daughter (my first horse ever!). I campaigned Peruvian horses that I bred in NATRC competitive trail riding, with my gelding El Sinchi Roca becoming the only Peruvian to earn the NATRC 1000 Mile Horse Award. I have been active in mangement of our two local NATRC rides since 1988, and have also managed an AERC endurance ride.
In addition, I am a NAPHA carded show steward.
Saw your message on our "Video Chat" We were in the "PHW Chat". We are beta testing a Video Chat, with video and audio. Next time, I'll send out better directions and I'm sorry I was not more clear for everyone. This is a learning curve for us as well, and I truly hope you will participate with us next time. We really want to make this site a useful and interactive resource for all of our members, and will keep striving towards that goal.
We were there...small group. We held an informal chat session. If you are willing, we can reschedule the trail topic. If you look at the bottom of the screen, you should see a toolbar with "PHW Chat". If you click on the "PHW Chat" it will open a chat window with all the participants.
We missed you! Mary Stanford was on...she said she knows you well and has participated in Competitive Trail as well.
