Gaits of the Paso Fino

Printer Friendly

One step, two step, three step, four. See and hear the unique four-beat lateral gait of the Paso Fino in this exclusive video. The Paso Fino’s four-beat lateral gait comes naturally to the breed and can be performed at three different speeds and degrees of collections, known as the Classic Fino, Paso Corto and Paso Largo. The video gives you an introduction to the Paso Fino’s gait, with demonstrations of these three variations. Observing the rhythm and cadence of the breed’s gait makes it easy to understand why the Paso Fino is a comfortable mount on trails and a facinating horse in the show ring.

For the past 11 years I have been owned by 2 paso finos. I have had other nice breeds but no other horse compares to the paso fino. I do distance and trail riding across all terrain and my pasos have never missed a beat. They are willing, gentle, and of course smooth.

i am riding two pasos since 8 years, i rode endurance on arabians and dressage on all kinds of warmblooded horses. my heart belongs to the paso fino, forever, for their character, willingness to please, hot blood, and sensitivity, and their gait. I am riding and living in the UAE. love that article

After having back surgery, I was told that I probably would never ride a horse again. Little did the surgeon know that the Paso Fino breed fascinated me and would allow the "forbidden" activity. Six years later, I ride every day and I ride both of my Paso's ! Loving , kind and patient, they follow my grandchildren around like puppies... If you are considering this breed, try a "test ride" you'll never want to stop.
