First off I really, really respect your opinions on gaited horses, and I am new to gaited horses myself. But I was just wondering, how could jumping (an adult) Paso Fino ruin it? And do you feel the same about other gaited breeds such as TWH's and Foxtrotters?
I guess I am just wondering if you think it would "ruin" the horse physically or in relation to gaiting properly or what?
The only thing that would worry me with Pasos is that DSLD thing they can get, but I don't know it that's Peruvians or Finos (or both?) that are predisposed to that.
