Paso Fino Qualities

The Paso Fino qualities are rather abundant. They can be utilized for riding, competitions or shows, harness work, and on farms. They are not as traditionally tall in size as some of the other horses, making them also a choice for kids to ride. This breed can be found in Venezuela, Columbia, Haiti, Cuba, and Puerto Rico.

Paso Fino Temperament

The Paso Fino horses are very powerful and excellent at sports. They can also be used for their ability to be agile. Their overall good looks can be recognized thanks to their Spanish genes. They are easy to train and generally do well living with other animals.

Paso Fino Appearance

The Paso Fino is a beautiful horse with a shiny coat. They stand at around fourteen hands in size when they are fully grown. The animal has a refined head and a straight profile over a convex one. Their neck is carried higher and they have sloping shoulders. Their top line is longer than their bottom line. Strong joints and loads of muscles help this breed with their unusual stride. Mostly bred in solid colors, the Paso Fino is attractive and kind.

Paso Fino Upkeep

To care properly for a Paso Fino horse is a minimal task. This breed can easily be accommodated living in virtually any type of climate. Warm or cold, and even in the mountains, the Paso can survive with little attention at all. They are happy to please their owners and can fetch their own supplies if needed.

Paso Fino History

The Paso Fino comes to the world from the areas of South America and the Caribbean. Their name has an unusual background, such as the phrase “Los Caballo de Paso Fino”, defined as, “the horse with the fine walk”. They bode a Spanish pathology that aids in their nobleness and they can actually display their gait from the time they are born. Around the time of the Second World War, the Paso Fino horses began to reach a higher level of popularity. They were beginning to have a notoriety that wasn't just limited to the Latin American communities. Instead, their popularity began to crawl through the United States, Columbia, Puerto Rico, and other areas located in South America. Their distinctive gait can be developed in three various paces: The Classic Fino, the Paso Corto and the Paso Largo. The first is a style that is fast and utilizes a short stepping pace. The second is one that can travel with a larger step. The last style is also quick but can cover more ground. They are all equally as cozy for the rider throughout the journey.
