fact that you are here indicates that you have an interest in the Peruvian
horse and it is hoped that the information that you find here will be
informative and entertaining. The Peruvian horse is our “Passion.” We trust
that the information provided will “spark” your interest in learning more
about these magnificent, spiritual and intelligent horses!
Our desire is to promote the
Peruvian horse, even more so than the Casa de Gloria. Because of this
desire we have included information on
Peru, the Peruvian
horse’s Spanish heritage and the 500 years of tradition and culture that
these magnificent horses have been a part of since Francisco Pizarro and the
Conquistadors arrived in Peru in 1532. Should you wish to learn more about
this breed we have also included information on the traditional
tack and our favorite
“Kids Arena” provides
an opportunity for children to have fun, as well as to gain information
about the Peruvian horse. We have also added some Safety
that may help children and beginners feel more secure as they begin their
wonderful relationship with horses.
The Casa de Gloria is not a
“horse facility.” It is a spiritual and peaceful ranch. We adhere to the
tradition of the Peruvian horse. We also embrace the Native American’s
concept of “being one with your horse.” Both our
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy
focus on bonding with a horse and reaping the rewards of that relationship.
To quote Gawani Pony Boy, “If we are to understand our relationship with the
horse we must first understand the relationship that we have with the entire
animal kingdom.” Native Americans believe that animals communicate with
human beings and this we also believe to be true. If you will go to
“From Our Horse’s Mouth”
you will see that each one of our horses have a soul and a sprit that they
have shared with us.
We welcome you to visit us just
to enjoy a relaxing and peaceful afternoon or to experience the joy of
riding the “smoothest horse on earth!” If you cannot visit us we are more
than willing to answer any questions that you may have or to share our
experiences and any knowledge that we have gained with you.
Hasta Luego and Happy Trails!!
