by Hidden Trails 12/15/2010

This past weekend over 5,000 people attended a Peruvian Paso Horse contest in Chiclayo, Peru. The event was held in an effort to promote tourist attractions and local customs.

One hundred horses were shown at the 48th Official regional Contest of the Peruvian Stepping Hose, organized by the Association of Owners and Breeders of Peruvian Paso Horses.

The event gathered many representatives from the champion breed, along with horsemen showcasing their best skills in an event that was close to the heart of Peruvian national identity and pride.

Other events occurred alongside the Peruvian Paso Horse Contest, such as a food festival and a national competition of Marinera Nortena, a typical Peruvian dance.
All the festivals happened simultaneously in a bid to boost Lambayeque as a tourist destination of northern Peru.
