About our Board of Directors

2019 Board of Directors
Our 2018 BOD is eager to bring its members more activities in the coming year.  We are ardently working to organize trail rides throughout the year in which we welcome any and all horse enthusiasts.  Our collective goal is to help facilitate a community of Peruvian Horse owners and friends that come together through the shared love of our beautiful and strong equine companions.
