Paso Fino Horse
The Paso Fino Horse is one of the world's most exciting
breeds giving the smoothest ride in the world and attracting
The gait of the Paso Fino Horses is unique and for those of
us with bad backs, bad knees, and many other problems caused
by years of riding, the Paso is the ideal choice. The movement
actually eases stiffness in joints and promotes good circulation.
There are many things you can do with the Paso Fino Horses.
They are such good weight carriers and have superb stamina,
so endurance is one of their talents.
The questions that we are most often asked is why are the
Paso Finos so special, and why do you love them so much? The
Paso Finos are very versatile, and easy to train. The thing
with the Paso Fino Horses is that they touch your heart and
once they have done this there's no getting them out of your
They are so loving and generous. They are small horses with
big hearts and big personalities. In the years I have been
around these horses I have never met one with any malicious
tendencies. But you can never truly understand the magic of
the Paso Fino Horse until you have ridden one. The Paso Fino
Horse has an isochronal, 4-beat gait, which is totally natural.
This is what makes these horses so amazing. As it is a natural
gait, nothing of the movement is forced, making it a smoother
Not only do the Paso Finos gait, but they can also trot and
canter, which shows the versatility of the breed. The Paso
Fino Horse is very balanced in gait and can carry an amazing
amount of weight.
The three speeds of the Paso Fino Gait are:
Slow - FINO - the movement of the legs is very fast,
however the steps are short and rapid. Therefore there seems
to be a great deal of energy and activity, but a very slow
Moderate - PASO CORTO - With the speed of a working trot,
this gait covers the ground more as the steps are larger than
the Fino movement.
Fast - PASO LARGO - This is the speed of canter. It is
the fastest speed of the gait. There is further extension
of the steps, which means they can cover more ground.
The Paso Fina Horse developed in Spain through the Barb, which
produced the Spanish Jennet, and the Andulasian. Columbus
transported the horses to what is now the Dominican Republic.
Subsequent explorers took them to Puerto Rico, Colombia, Cuba,
Panama and Mexico.
These stunning horses range in size from 13.2 hh to 15.2 hh
and are in every colour.
The Paso temperament is kind and gentle. Once experienced,
these horses become seriously addictive. We were the first
to introduce these horses to Britain and we are the foremost
stud with an internationally approved breeding programme.
We hope that after meeting them you'll love them as much as
