Peruvian Paso Tack - Spanish Oral Presentation - Initial Plan


Origin in 15th century Europe, brought over by Conquistadores

Adapted to Peruvian needs: comfort for long rides, as horses mostly used for transport.

Also adapted to mountainous regions, so stable for both horse/rider

Why is is special?

Often very ornate, lots of leatherworking detail.

Especially on saddle skirts, guarnición y florón


Techniques often passed down through families, so each leatherworker will produce a slightly different saddle.

Different style to many other varieties of tack
