Horses are your passion and you can’t imagine anything better than living on a real horse ranch and getting your hands dirty?

Here it doesn’t matter if you are already a professional on the horse or an interested beginner – you can spend a lot of time on the back of the fascinating animals if you want to.

On our horse ranch in a small and idyllic village in the north of Peru you have the unique opportunity to learn horse riding or to further develop your skills. And not on just any horses, but on the world famous Peruvian Paso horses. There are quite a few of them on the farm. A Swiss-Peruvian couple runs the farm, where pure rural atmosphere awaits you in the midst of beautiful and impressive nature.

In the surroundings of the farm there are numerous sights and exciting places just waiting to be discovered on horseback. The operators of the farm offer tours for tourists, for example to pyramids from the Inca period.

Besides horses, the farm also keeps cows, chickens and ducks. In addition, the operators of the farm also help horses in need and street dogs and cats. They shelter the abandoned animals, sterilize them, cure them and find them new homes.

Of course, you will also spend a lot of time on the horses’ backs. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or a professional, here everyone can get involved according to their own abilities and develop them quickly. A unique opportunity to combine work with passion.

There are also other activities on the farm where you can help out. The operators of the farm also help horses in need as well as stray dogs and cats. They shelter the abandoned animals, sterilize them, cure them and find them new homes. You can support them and take care of the dogs and cats as well as the other animals on the farm.

In the surroundings of the farm you will find an idyllic rural atmosphere in the middle of nature, beautiful landscapes and impressive archaeological sites from the pre-Inca and Inca times. The village center of Pacora is only a five-minute walk away. It is located on the north coast of Peru in the province of Lambayeque, only an hour bus ride from Chiclayo. An hour to the north, you’ll reach what are probably Peru’s most beautiful beaches in Máncora, perfect for a weekend getaway. The connection to Chiclayo is very good; a bus leaves about every 10 minutes. But also in the village itself there are pharmacies, butchers, bakers and various stores where you can get almost everything. In the idyllic village, it is very familiar. Everyone knows everyone here.

You don’t need any special qualifications for the job at the farm. If you have a big heart for horses and other animals, a positive attitude and enthusiasm, you will love volunteering at the horse ranch. Even if you have never been on a horse before, it is not a problem. The animals are very docile and if you feel like it, you can learn to ride very quickly. If you already have experience with horses, you may take on more responsible tasks, such as training the Paso horses.

Of course, you should not be afraid to get your hands dirty, you will live on the farm and will be involved in the daily work.


The national language in Peru is Spanish. The farm is run by a Swiss-Peruvian couple. Therefore, you have the advantage of having a German-speaking contact person directly on the farm. However, since you will be working with locals who do not speak German, you should have some basic knowledge to be able to communicate with them. If you don’t have any knowledge yet, we recommend a language course at the beginning of the trip, which we will gladly organize for you.


You will stay directly on the farm in a country-style room or bungalow, which is located next to the family’s residential building. You will live either in a single room or a double room with another participant.

From Monday to Saturday you will eat together three times a day in the kitchen. In the morning and evening the owner of the farm cooks, at noon a cook prepares the food. On Sundays the meals are not included, of course you are free to use the fully equipped kitchen.


Carlos is German-Peruvian and grew up in Lima in a German family. He still lives there today and thus speaks both Spanish and German. He has never been in Germany for more than three months, but he knows the customs and traditions first hand. He also knows his home country Peru and the culture and can’t wait to show you everything. Carlos describes himself as a fun-loving, helpful and humorous person who will always help you with words and deeds. He is our local insider who will give you lots of tips and information about Peru and the rest of Latin America. Carlos will take care of you during the introductory meeting in Lima. For questions of any kind during your stay in Latin America, an English-speaking contact person is available via WhatsApp in the same time zone.

Ronja worked for a month at the Horse Ranch and tells in this interview about her time at the farm. Starting with her first riding lesson, Ronja fell in love with the horses, especially the foals. Although she wasn’t a horse person before, she became very interested in riding and ultimately made the right decision.
