The beginning 


Eduard van Brunschot (better known as Eddy) is the founder of Perol Chico and is of Dutch and Peruvian descent. In 1996, Eddy moved to Peru, where he bought some farming land in the Sacred Valley of the Incas and started constructing his new homeHe also bought a couple of Peruvian horses for his pleasure and joy.

While exploring the fantastic trails high in the surrounding mountains, Eddy soon discovered that the Peruvian Paso horse was the ultimate trail-riding horse: unrivalled in endurance and comfort. 

No established or professional horse-riding operation existed in those days, which led to him creating his company and offering exceptional riding expeditions to travellers. Eduard became the pioneer of equestrian tourism in Peru. His riding expeditions in the Peruvian Andes soon appeared in reputable horse magazines, guidebooks and the brochures of prestigious equestrian travel agencies worldwide. National Geographic listed his rides in the Andes in the "Top 10 Horseback Rides in the World". 

Our Company

The world is changing, and so is today's business landscape. The consciousness of individuals, organisations, countries and cultures is evolving towards a greater awareness of our impact on other human beings and the environment in which we live. In this new era of doing business, companies must not only focus on profits and serve individual needs but also contribute and engage more with community development and sustainability. More than ever, businesses are called upon to contribute rather than harm and be more honest, transparent and ethical.


Since the beginning, our company has followed a sustainable way of running our business based on humanist beliefs and values.  

A significant portion of our revenues is spent in our local economy. Directly or indirectly, we provide income to local businesses such as hotels, restaurants, transport companies, farmers that supply feed for our horses, but also local families that provide accommodation for our grooms and horses along the ride, the families of our staff, and the chain goes on and on. 

Tourism is vital for Peru's economy and expanding human flourishing and dignity to our communities. From this perspective, we feel proud to contribute, even on a small scale, to expanding human development and welfare in our country, both locally as well as beyond the perimeter of our community.
