People riding llamas
People often ask us Can you ride a llama?
As you can see in the photos above, the answer is yes.
These two photos were taken in parades in Mount Lehman
and we have to admit that sometimes it even rains here.
They can easily carry a child, but an adult is a too heavy for them.
An adult llama is strong enough to carry an adult,
but very few people will force their llamas to carry that much weight.
However, in the past
adults have ridden llamas
as shown by this picture
of two men playing polo
The picture is from
a 1920 postcard.
from Quito, Ecuador
shows a man on a llama.
This Peruvian postcard
shows a couple of young boys
riding on llamas.
