A beach ride on a Peruvian paso, the world's most comfortable horse


The qualities of this type of horse make it so that the ride is well suited for people of any age. From children to seniors, everyone can enjoy this attractive route that begins at the Peruvian Paso Horse Center, part of the Universidad Científica del Sur (UCSUR).

You can choose a ride of one or two hours. As soon as you arrive at the place where the horses are kept, you can feel the ocean breeze and hear the sounds of the Conchán beach, located at Km. 19 of the Panamericana Sur, where the route will continue until you reach the border of Pantanos de Villa. 
The view allows you to really appreciate the natural beauty of the place. There are a number of different species of birds flying through the marine setting, and around Pantanos de Villa you can see a plenitude of wildlife.
A unique horse
Riding a Peruvian paso horse is completely different from riding any other type of horse.
“It has a movement that is very smooth and unique to its race,” said Paola fake watches Quintana, chief if the equestrian unit of UCSUR.
An angled back, sloping hindquarters, and a low tail are some of the characteristics of this type of horse. It moves smoothly at a moderate pace, when other races move at what would be called a “trot” at this speed. The unique movement makes this a relaxing - and not a tiring - experience.
“It walks side-to-side, moving the front and back leg of one side at the same time,” Quintana said.
 Its smoothness has made this the most comfortable horse in the world to ride. Because of its rhythmic walk, body temperature and three-dimensional movements, it creates a sense of wellbeing for the rider. This sensation is enhanced by the sea breezes that accompany you on the ride.
Take note 
Riding a horse is not something difficult that should be feared. With some prior instruction, you can ride a horse without complications on the first attempt. 
Before you begin, you will be taught to turn, hold the reins, and come to a stop. It’s simple. You just have to pull the reins to the left or right depending on what direction you want the horse to move in. 
The reins should be held with both hands, at the height of the naval, and you shouldn’t lean on the saddle. 
If you want the horse to stop, you pull in the reins, but not abruptly, because the reins are attached to a metal piece that fits into the horse’s mouth, and pulling too forcefully could cause it discomfort.
On the trip, you will be accompanied by an instructor and a professional horserider, who will choose the horse for each rider based on the temperament of both. For example, a nervous rider will get a calm horse.
Comfortable pants, a hat and closed-toed shoes are all that is required to enjoy this unforgettable ride.
