Some good looking horses!
From the Dominican Republic.
We had been looking for a good Paso mare for Sereno. We fell in love with Miss Amelia while she was just standing around in the prep area before her first show. Beautiful solid copper color and very collected horse. She is the second horse in this vid. Before show price: $15K. After taking second place: $35K, then down to $23K
(should have made the deal before the show.)
The show people would have had a fit if they saw what we do with our Paso's. My wife had an injury and I was getting behind working our two. So I had our main man, Amado on Sereno helping me TRY to work Chican to get some exercise. Amado is 6'3" and I'm 5'6" so the stirrups as a little short for Amado. Amado also was still in training, his hands and arms are all over the place. Lol.
Paso Finos here and in most of South America are used to work cattle and just about anything else. They were the FIRST horses in the New World brought over by Columbus on his second voyage, not far from where we live in the Dominican Republic. This out back Paso with no real training has the same gate as those pro's above.
