About The Breed
If your name means “fine step” in Spanish, you had better bring it! The smooth-gaited, stylish, yet athletic Paso Fino delivers the goods, gliding across the ground with unearthly spirit, grace and dignity. And thanks to thoughtful early explorers, they do it naturally— no enhancements, special shoes or extraordinary measures needed. They just do it. So whether your goal is simple backyard pleasure riding, hitting the show ring, competing on the endurance circuit or some serious trail riding, there’s a Paso Fino para usted (for you)..
"Paso fino" horses rest their hooves on the ground with gentleness and usually don't raise their hooves too high. As a consequence this gait, executed only by our horses is called the "Paso Fino" gait, because of their easy, gentle, proud, and rhythmical gait capable of carrying a rider with a glass full of water without spilling it." .
