Paso Fino Testimonial "There are many reasons that a Paso gets under your skin and into your heart; but it always comes down to one most enduring trait - their naturally genetic gait. Creating for the rider the smoothest, most comfortable, mile after mile, no bounce ride of any horse you have ever encountered!" Barbara, Oregon
Luxury on Horseback Today's Paso Fino horses are valued for traits that have been the legacy of the breed for more than 500 years. Their Spanish heritage began in Latin America with the arrival of the Spanish Conquistadors. Paso Finos have a natural, smooth four-beat lateral gait and an elegant and proud carriage. On the trail, in the show ring, or in the breeding barn we believe you will find the Paso Fino horse fascinating, unique and irresistible.
Maybe your perfect Paso Fino awaits you in the Horses for Sale or Stallion Services. Our Calendar of Events lists upcoming horsemanship and training clinics, trail rides, shows and other activities. Trail Reports share some of our favorite places to ride.
