Peru validly affirms to having a diversity of festivals and traditions that form the cultural heritage of the country. An endless amount of events and festivals throughout the whole year give color and taste to our daily life, with celebrations that, among typical dances and deep acts of religious devotion, fill up Peruvian life with passion and happiness.
National Horse Riding Competition: The Peruvian Paso horse is an equine breed from Peru that descended from the horses that were introduced by the Spaniards during the Conquest and during the first periods of colonial rule. By the means of a resolution from the Ministry of the Exterior and Tourism Commerce, the Peruvian government made the day of this festival the third Sunday in April each year. So, on this day they put into place the National Competition of Peruvian Paso Horses.
