ENRICHING EQUESTRIAN TRAVEL
- SINCE 1996 -
Horse riding holidays & equestrian tours in Peru
The Perol Chico Ranch offers luxury horse riding holidays and private equestrian tours and activities in Peru. Founded in 1996 by Dutch-Peruvian Eduard van Brunschot, the well-established Ranch is home to some of the finest Peruvian Paso horses, well-trained and conditioned for long-distance rides.
The Ranch is nestled against a majestic mountain backdrop in the heart of the mythical Sacred Valley of the Incas, between Cusco and Machu Picchu. This beautiful part of the Peruvian Andes offers some of the most spectacular scenery and vistas, and endless miles of riding trails on ancient Inca roads, once part of the impressive Inca road network.
Perol Chico's multi-day rides are suitable for the more experienced rider. During the rides, guests are treated to delicious regional cuisine while accommodation is offered at delightful hotels selected for their local character, colonial architecture, comfort and picturesque, convenient location.
Perol Chico maintains the highest standards of professionalism in equine care, guiding, accommodation, protecting the environment and caring for guests with unrivalled personal attention to detail.
We invite you to discover the magic of the Peruvian Paso horse and the grandeur of its native land in an unforgettable equestrian journey for the privileged few.
A gift from the Gods
In his book A Gift from the Gods, the owner of Perol Chico delves into the mesmerising universe of the Peruvian Paso horse, detailing his love for equestrian travel, the poetry of riding and the preservation of the breed. The author's passion is evident throughout, making this a must-read for anyone who loves horses and wishes to learn more about the Peruvian Paso horse and Peru's equestrian culture and traditions.
