About Me:
Discovered the breed only 1 yr ago (looking for a younger trail horse) now 1 yr and 1 month later, I own one 15mth old pure filly, and more recently a 6yr old untrained mare (about to be started). Have only test ridden about 6 peruvians, been to Peru with Mimi Busk-Downey Crescent Moon Tours, but have only the help of friends in southern parts of Australia for information (all have been extremely good) - but when you're on an 'island' literally, very few in Qld with Peruvians. I'm kinda 'out on my own'. Just thought I'd drop in here occassionally and see what's up. Comments on saddle also interesting - I have a Wintec Pro S/fender halfbreed which is real comfy, but think I will use my new peruvian tack (except for stirrups on trails) predominantly. Carmelita will be started in the light saddle, but will progress to the full peruvian garb by the time she's finished. Thoughts of future breeding will most likely come to pass in a couple of years or so. Meanwhile - it's LOTS of trail riding.
