The Horse History

Breed History
Chilean 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.
