As I am quite familiar with caballos de paso (called 'paso fino' in the US and other countries) and marinera norteña (one of the most famous and beautiful dances from Peru), I was 'desperately' looking for a show of this type. In Trujillo, I had...More

This was a lovely performance by the horses and the dancers. The owners are very kind and do a good job both narrating the performance and taking about the horses. Definitely worth the time to see while you're in Trujillo!

Beautiful afternoon show narrated by a very enthusiastic MC. Gave insight into Peruvian culture as well as the history of the paso horses. Very entertaining dance display followed by a short ride around the ring (for a price).

I visited with my parents, as my father is a horse-lover. Like some other reviewers on TA, we found the out-of-town venue to be a little unprepossessing, being essentially a field with a wall round it, an open marquee to provide shade, and some plastic...More

The horses are truly stunning! They are shown in-hand and with a rider during different "scenarios", one which includes the famous dance with a barefoot lady in a fancy dress. Sadly, the location has changed from 1.10-2016: this is an important change!!!! Our taxi (MAX...More
