Being new to the breed, of course I'm online all the time looking for articles, information, etc...

Why does there seem to be such a lack of information on Peruvian Pasos and what information is online, is years if not decades old.   I frequently find the same articles over and over again. One gets the impression that these horses were a "fad" that has since waned out ...  Another issue I run into quite frequently are web links that no longer exist.  

Search QH or TB and the hits are endless..  Peruvian - you'll be lucky to find a handful.  

It's just frustrating to someone new to the breed, that there is such a lack of information, health info, etc.. for such a wonderful breed of horse.  I was lucky that a member on here was gratitous enough to copy some dvd's and mail them to me.

Hello To All - Lorraine, I do understand your frustration. When I got my PP gelding in 2008, I was very fortunate to board him at the breeder's ranch Alianza, in Colorado. I knew nothing about the PP horse, or any other horse.  I was less than a beginner. But I was blessed with the help of the resident Chalan (trainer) Cesar Garro and the owner Jack Zehren, who taught me everything, including the wonderful history and culture of our horses. After 3 months, I moved him closer to home, and was once again blessed by the expertise and patience of another Chalan, Vladimir Villegas.  I continued to train with Vladi until we left Colorado in 2011. I am now in South Carolina, and I believe I have the only registered PP in the state.  Our horses are an unknown here, and not well respected by the Hunter/Jumper world. But they respect no one but Hunter/Jumpers.  But, he is the most loved horse in our barn, for his gentle manner, his intelligence, soft eye, and willingness to serve. We are moving to Texas soon, and I intend to find the many ranches and breeders there, so I can continue to grow with Cender. I did purchase the book THE PERUVIAN HORSE by Carlos Luna de la Fuente.  A wonderful book and very informative.  Also, I participated in the show in Colorado in 2008 and 2009.  I met some fantastic people who were very willing to help and answer questions and offer advice.  It really helped me understand the makings of this magnificent horse.  Good luck to you, and enjoy.

We are alive and well in the Great Northwest.  Come to the Northwest Regional show 07--9 Aug 2015.  to see the best horses in North American and Canada.  Our Canadian friends to the North in BC and Alberta have the best Stallions and Mares in the world.  Paradise and Ringstead Ranches Produce the best.  We will have a clinic at our hacienda (WildHorse Creek Hacienda, Pendleton Oregon) to prepare to do battle against the Canadians the week before the Northwest regional show starting 31 July until 4 August limited to 10 riders and 10 juniors.  It's all about dressage. We only have 4 slots in each.  German & Edgar will instruct.  They do not play, prepare to train hard and long,  and we travel together to McMinnville, Oregon on 5 Aug at O dark 30.

I must say I went through some convolution to find PP horse people here I Texas.  What I ended up doing was printing out you member list of Texas members and cross referenced them with Facebook.  It seemed th

At many members on your Texas list are not active.  I was able this way to find people in my area.

You said it Brad! I put this out there again... the PPHRNA had TONS of educational materials. What happened to all that info? Doesn't anyone have any of it? I saw a horrible photocopy of their "Peruvian Horses for Beginners" booklet. (Of course, the person who had it threw it out when she got out of horses.) I have someone who would be willing to re-typeset the old photocopies if someone could find them. This information DID exist. What happened to it after the merger? 

I really miss Nuestro Caballo. It wasn't fancy. No high end production. But the info was awesome! Does NAPHA own the rights to the articles that belonged to the PPHRNA? Can anyone answer that question?

Sorry to say this has been the case for over 30 years. There have been a few publications with good information presented, as Peruvian Horse World Review, Caballo and Nuestro Caballo. The more recent publications seemed more promotional.

There also were a fair number of clinics and open houses being presented prior to 2004. Since then not so much.

You will need to search and probe and learn what you can from the sources and people willing to share.

The horse's popularity has been on a rapid wane in the U.S., you are correct. Such a shame as you say for such a wonderful breed of horse.

Lorraine and James, I agree that the breed needs more forms of education for Peruvian horse owners. In the meantime, please post some questions that PHW members can weigh in on and discuss.

Hi Lorraine-

Thank you for your well expressed post. One of the reasons PHW was created was to address this very issue.  While we do not have an extensive library of articles, our members can reach out, ask questions and interact with breed experts and owners.

I'd love to know what type of topics you would like to learn about. We can reach out to our breed expert members and see what we can do to start bringing more educational and informational content to the site.

It's great feedback from members like you who help us to keep improving.
