Understanding Peruvian Horse shows:

We compete at three levels in Peruvian shows. First, there is the qualifying round where everyone starts out. If you finish first or second in a qualifying class, you go on to compete against the top two in the other qualifying classes for that division for Champion or Reserve Champion (runner-up) in the Championship round. If you are awarded Champion, you go on to compete against Champions from previous years at that show in that division. Once you have been awarded Champion of Champions three times at that show in that division, you are awarded the title of Laureado (for geldings or stallions) or Laureada for mares and are retired from competition with honours.

A horse that has been awarded Laureado at the national level or has accumulated more than 2000 lifetime points is given the PHAC Medalion de Oro and the distinction of carrying a “+” behind their name. We are very proud that the first foal we bred carries one “+” for each of these awards, thus he is referred to as RJT Colorado Real++.

There are four basic divisions we compete in under saddle. The breeding (or luxury for geldings) is judged completely on the horse — its conformation and condition, brio (energy) and collection, and gait.   Awards are given to the top mare, stallion and gelding.  The gait division is judged on the horse’s way of going and awards only one title of best gaited horse of show.  The pleasure division is judged on the horse and rider combination and requires a well-trained horse and skilled rider to place well.  The pleasure division is open only to amateur riders and generally awards three titles — mare, stallion and gelding. The performance division is similar to pleasure, but both amateurs and professionals can compete and there is only one title — the mares, stallions and geldings all compete against one another.
