Peruvian Paso Horse

Attractions & Activities In Trujillo & Chiclayo


The Peruvian Paso horse, known for its smooth, lateral gait and even temperament, was first developed in Trujillo from the horses brought over by the Spanish conquistadors. This much-respected breed has earned worldwide renown and has even been declared part of the Cultural Heritage of the Nation by Peru’s Institute of National Culture.

Peruvian Pasos make several appearances during major events throughout the year, including at the Marinera Festival in January, when the male dancer often performs on top of the horse. Horse shows and competitions also feature in the Spring Festival, which takes place in September and October.
