horses were the first stock horse to be registered in the Western
Hemisphere in 1893. Isolated from imported breeds, they have
been bred for their cow-working skills over the last century
by Chilean cowboys or huesos. Chilean Horses have great strength
and are able to withstand repeated impacts while working cattle.
The rugged mountain terrain of Chile has developed a breed
that has the stamina to survive great environmental fluctuations
in climate as well as physical hardships. While energetic and
capable of great bursts of speed, the Chilean horse's close
relationship with humans over the decades, has resulted in
a horse who is trainable, docile, and eager to please. Chilean
horses are perfectly suited to the rugged terrain of the American
West and its mountains and deserts.
