Hacienda La Cumbre is home to some of the finest Peruvian Horses in the world.  Owners Bob and Karen Calentine not only raise Peruvians, they enjoy them.  They trail ride and compete in pleasure and performance classes as well as breeding in the regional and national shows.  The beautiful, outdoor arena located on the spacious grounds of Hacienda La Cumbre is the main training area for Karen and daughter Cheryl.

Cheryl, who is active in the North American Trail Riding Conference uses her Peruvians to compete in NATRC
all over California. After winning Championships at shows, Cheryl won first NAPHA high point National Trail Horse on *AHT Romantico

"The best part about owning a Peruvian is watching how quickly they learn as you work with them and teach them what you expect of them.  They have tremendous brio and are very eager to please", noted Karen.  Although Hacienda La Cumbre has fulltime trainer and staff, Karen and Cheryl enjoy working their horses themselves.  Avid competitors, Karen and Cheryl have won many blue ribbons in amateur and open performance and amateur pleasure classes throughout California.

An international oil executive, Bob prefers the quiet, peacefulness of trail riding.  "My job provides all the competition I need," he laughs.  "I enjoy just getting away from it all and 'smelling the roses' from the back of my horse."

Hacienda La Cumbre was designed with Peruvian horses and their enjoyment in mind.  The sloping trails and beautiful barn are inviting to novices and professionals alike. The view from the main house is both peaceful and breathtaking.  Bob holds many of his business meetings at the ranch.  It is so enjoyable, everyone seems to be able to relax and think more clearly, away from the busy chaos of everyday activities in the business world.
