The perfect racehorse in the Andes:
Developed in the region of Ayacucho, the Morochuco has exceptional endurance, and is often gaited -- which is why it is favored by Peruvian riders who live in the Andes.
Today, Morochuco horses are used as trail horses and racehorses. They race in flat galloping races down a straight line, unbothered by the thin air thanks to their body that is adapted for the high altitude.
The conformation of the Morochuco is more recognizable compared to the two other Andean subtypes, because its profile is more convex and its neck is shorter.
In addition, the Morochuco can be shorter than the other two Andean subtypes, making it easier to identify based on height (if 12.2hh or shorter).
The following are the: range, average, (SD), and MOE of performance metrics of ordered Morochucos horses in Horse Isle (not bred ones). In rare cases,

Additionals: flaxen, linebacked, roan, sooty, dark mane and tail. The coat can be mealy to a limited extent, and horses will be penalized for excessive mealiness. In addition, the coat is always solid, and while markings occur on the face and legs, they are small-to-medium in size.
