TOURISM ATTRACTIONS

PERUVIAN PACER HORSES EXHIBITION

Duration: Half day. Morning only. Minimum 3 passengers
The coast from Piura to Ancash, including the departments of Lambayeque, La Libertad and Cajamarca, is the territory of the north Peru dressage horse. Of course it is the same breed that is found in Lima and the south of the country but distinguished by its delicate gait and the versatility of its appearance. This well known elegance is the result of careful cross breeding which, over various generations, has produced a quite distinguished animal. An exhibition of these special horses is featured at the Casa Campo “El Carmen de Juchape”. Two “Chalanes” with their typical dresses ride horses.
This tour is provided in combination with the Sun and Moon Temples as it is in the same area.
