The goal for the Fiesta del Norte/Northern Lights Peruvian Horse Show is to have fun and share the news and enjoyment of the Peruvian Horse. The Fiesta has owners and ranches who have brought horses since the show's inception as well as new owners who have never shown before. It is a warm, welcoming environment for everyone. All new comers to the show, new or old to the breed, are encouraged to contact Aura Austin on the Contact page so she can ensure their needs are met and to answer any questions they may have.
