I have been horse crazy as long as I can remember being alive.I grew up in the St paul MN area but had friends in the outskirts of town that had horses and ponies.My first horse/riding experiences were with naughty shetland ponies that belonged to my friends and relatives.I was never able to be discouraged and only wanted to learn more after these first horse experiences .I spent most of my teen/babysitting money on riding lessons . I bought my first horse in my 20's [a 1/2 Fijord and 1/2 Appaloosa gelding named Oliver]I continued with riding lessons in English and jumping.I rode English and even taught my little" Oliver "to jump and drive! I soon moved away from the cities , 50 miles north to Cambridge and bought 2 more horses ,both Arabians.
I joined a natural horsemanship group with a member who introduced me to the Peruvian horse breed. I was instantly "hooked"after the first ride ,it was bareback as I re-call .This was over 13 years ago.The Peruvian breed has become my biggest passion !
We curently have 12 Peruvian horses that we trail ride,participate in parades , drill team ,breed and do a small amount of showing with at our regional show.
We have met some really nice people and made some great friends through being associated with the breed.

Hi Sue. Your page is great. One of these days I'll get some time to do something with mine. I'll be done with school (for good) in July. It'll be great to have my life back. Bob asked what I'll do with all my time and I said "Ride!!" If you and Mitch get to the Sand Dunes for a ride, stop by and say hi! Oh ... and we'll be calling about bringing Rosa up for breeding. Hope all's well with you and Mitch.
Our little baby is doing great! It has been a wonderful first year. Thank you for congrats about the nationals. It was an amazing weekend. Look forward to seeing you at the MN show. How many horses are you bringing?
David here. Thanks for your comment, hopefully before too long we can make a trip up to see PURITANO - his photos look great. I have one of Jaime's daughters here and she will be ready for her first foal next breeding season. I need to see and learn more however he is certainly worthy of serious consideration. Good to meet - Laura Mesa has done the PP world a great thing with this site! David
HHello Sue. It is nice to hear from you. Things are going well here. Busy getting hay in, working with horses and running canine agility with my little Pom.
Valentia is lovely. She is 2 yrs and is as tall if not taller then Lena. She is alittle gangly right now and needs to grow into her long legs We handle her and Jubilosa a lot so they are easy to handle.
As soon as I get a current picture I will send to you.
Hope to see you soon.
Are you goling to the show?
Hi Sue, I love your webpage and your focus - longevity and strength - people after our own heart! Your foundation stallion seems like a gem. We have a 15 year old here and a 31 year old in Peru. IF you are interested check out our site - go to my page - forigve the website - it is not very user friendly - check out stallions - Jaime - pedigree - some similarities - and then some of his offspring. We should talk in the future - how can we help to let the public know that strong and well gaited Peruvian Paso Horses are not contradictory terms!
