I was also very privilaged to have a very good friend of mine from Michigan come down and join me on this ride, and also the Santa Fe Trail Ride which went from Caps Texas, to San Angelo Texas.

Ya esta amaneciendo

y el sol despunta temprano

ya veo venir de lejos a mi querido caballo peruano.

Sus cascos tal tambores se sienten

y sus crines al viento volando

en el rancho el forraje le espera

y el chalan para ir cabalgando.

Ya empezó su mañana

y el trabajo en el campo le espera

que lindo que mi peruano camina

y que lindo sus manos bolean.

Las leguas a su paso sortea

y en el lomo… Continue

"Comments" Feature Now Available on shilohgaited.com Hall of Fame Page

It was suggested by Ricki Lechler that we try to provide a way for people to share memories they have of any of our "honorees" and to also offer a place where any of the "honorees" can share any of their thoughts as well.

I will not guarantee that it will work as planned, but we are hoping the "COMMENT" section on our HALL OF FAME page will do the trick!

Ricki- thanks for the great idea!

"Hall of Fame" Is Our Most Viewed Website Page!

There has been tremendous interest in our unofficial North American "Hall of Fame". How many of our "members" do you recognize? Who have we missed that you think should be on the list? Should NAPHA be starting their own Hall of Fame like so many of the other breeds have? We look forward to your viewing and input.

The big move...

In early February, we made the move to my new operation just north of Blackie, Alberta. Starting with 120 acres of raw land including wonderful ponds and creeks, we now have a home and paddocks in place. Barn is next on our agenda -- just waiting for the frost to come out of the ground.

In the new facility, we will be offering lessons and clinics to support enthusiastic people in discovering the joys of Peruvian Horses. Horse leases will also be offered, including show leases where… Continue

"Hall of Fame" Feature Now at shilohgaited.com

As many of you know, we have long promoted the idea of a NAPHA Hall of Fame to recognize those many people in North America who have contributed so much, in so many different ways, to the development and promotion of our wonderful breed. Unfortunately, as of this time, there has been no movement by NAPHA in that direction.

Because of this we have started our own "unofficial" Hall of Fame in our own attempt to bring a small amount of recognition to those so deserving. Check it out at… Continue
