Horse breeding at Gut Jagoutz - Paso Peruano Pferdezucht The horse breed Paso Peruano which is bred on this farm in the village of Zell, situated approx. 800 m above sea level, originally came from Peru. The Paso Peruanos are outstanding horses for country and recreational riding and are excellently well-suited for trail riding thanks to their special gait, the Paso Llano (similar to the tolt). Another special, very agreeable characteristic of these horses is that thanks to their unique way of moving their front legs, the Paso Peruanos can carry you almost without a jolt up to 100 km per day.
