Killcreek Peruvian Ranch is located just a few
miles West of I35 on the outskirts of the metropolitan Kansas
City area, in a serene rural setting, complete with a large farm
pond, which mirrors their gorgeous Peruvians grazing the
adjoining pastures, and a scenic koi pond.
Owners Jim and Bonnie
Givens have owned and loved this wonderful breed for over 15
years, and only recently became committed to breeding, so they
could share their love of the breed with others. They became
enamored of the Peruvians when they were actively field
trailing, and needed a sturdy and smooth breed of horse which
could handle being ridden for four or more hours a day, in any
kind of weather. The Peruvian Paso fit their needs, and were
gorgeous, and a joy to ride, in addition. Thus, a legacy was
modest operation, Jim and Bonnie maintain close contact with
their herd on a daily basis, and the Peruvians are like extended
family. They now show their Peruvians at regional and national
breed shows, as well as local all gaited-breed shows, almost as
frequently as they ride for pleasure or to watch their dogs
hunt. All their horses which have been shown with any frequency
have won numerous championships, reserve championships, and
champion of champions classes.
They strive to breed horses for sound
conformation, beauty, and affectionate dispositions. Their
horses must be able to endure being ridden over all types of
terrain for long periods of time, as well as being able to
handle the stress of the show ring.
They encourage you to come visit them and their
Peruvians at their place in Olathe, Kansas.
They proudly stand their stallion, KPR Activio de
Fenix, to approved mares.
