Peruvian Paso Description
  The Peruvian Paso is one of the few naturally gaited horses in the world and are becoming increasingly popular as gaited horses are making a comeback. It is an even-tempered animal ideal for long-distance riding. They are considered the smoothest riding horse in the world and have a self-assured way of acting that makes them carry themselves proudly. They are shown without shoe and with a natural hoof. It is a moderately sized animal that is powerful with a well-muscled build. The most desirable colors are solid colors or grays, with dark skin, but can also be chestnut, brown, black, bay, palomino, buckskin, gray, dun or roan, which are more common. The mane can be curly or straight and is fine and lustrous.
