This reminded me of my encounter with these very noble creatures in Pisac, in the Valley of Urubamba, about a month ago.
It was our last day in Pisac and we went for a little walk. Suddenly I saw a horse in front of a café/restaurant.
Went to take a closer look and turned out it was a paso horse, owned by a local gentleman who breeds them. What is special with paso horses is that they have a gait called "champagne walk". It means that the horse steps so smoothly that the rider should be able to sit at the back and hold a tray of champagne without dropping any of the drink.
Champagne walk! How classy is that? I love all kind of horses, but this one is clearly my favorite!
We were invited to go inside to the horse stall (or actually, it was a back yard of a hotel-in-construction) to see more horses. There was even one baby:
Well, bye bye then, dear horse friends: I hope to see you soon again!
