The Paso Fino Horse is a horse for all seasons, a horse for all climates and a horse for many diverse purposes. From deep southern Florida to Alaska, from southern California to eastern Canada, the Paso Fino horse demonstrates its remarkable versatility. Not Just in the show ring, but on competitive trail and endurance rides, in dressage work, at barrel racing and gymkhana events, and back at the ranch working cattle. But most importantly to hundreds of owners, the Paso Fino horse is unsurpassed as a pleasure horse and equine companion. With his remarkable intelligence and willing disposition, the Paso Fino can be the first horse for a child, or the last horse for one's autumn years. And he may be the one horse that can bring back the pleasure of horseback riding to the handicapped or those with back ailments. 
The Paso Fino Horse is "America's newest old breed" since it was unknown in the United States until the 1950's, but has been bred in Latin America since the days of the Conquistadors. 

The Paso Fino Horse is an athlete, an investment and a family treasure. And he does it all with a natural gait that provides unparalleled comfort for the rider, a style that is unique to the breed, and unsurpassed versatility for the horse lover. 

The Paso Fino Horse reflects its Spanish heritage through its proud carriage, grace and elegance. The Paso Fino is born with a gait unique to the breed. As a natural gait, it does not exhibit the catapulting or exaggerated leg action of man-made gaits; rather the movements are smooth, rhythmic, purposeful, straight, balanced in flexion and synchronous front to rear, resulting in unequaled comfort and smoothness for the rider. The Paso Fino is a graceful, agile and supple equine athlete that uses all four legs with precision and harmony. In addition to being born with the natural ability to perform the Paso Fino gait, selective breeding has produced other basic qualities in today's Paso Fino. 
The Paso Fino Horse is people oriented, enjoying his human companions and striving to please. He is willing and spirited but very gentle at hand and easily managed. His hooves are extremely durable and he is seldom shod unless traveling on rocky surfaces. His large lung capacity gives him endurance, and he is naturally quick, surefooted and athletic. Size varies with the average being slightly over 14 hands. Every equine color can be found. The Paso Fino horse has the ability to execute all natural equine gaits and can be taught to perform them on cue. But, because the Paso Fino gait is so comfortable and unique, most riders require the Paso Fino to move only in its own special gait under saddle. 

I'm telling the truth

The Paso Fino Horse is the horse of the future as an investment. It is one of the very few equine breeds that has steadily increased in value over the past years. As the popularity of this breed continues to grow, the demand for quality show and breeding stock will continue to escalate the prices on such animals. Unlike investing in real estate, stocks, etc., the Paso Fino horse will not only be an investment but will return your love.
