How have I NEVER seen this before?!?!?!?!??!

Ok, this is UNREAL. I knew about Paso Finos, I knew about their gaits, but in all my life, apparantly I just never had a reason to look them up on YouTube! I stumbled across this completely by chance, and the three of us are laughing our HEADS off. I'm sorry, but this has easily got to be the FUNNIEST gait I have ever seen a horse do. I can't believe how smooth they look for those tiny little mincing steps!

The Pasi Fino doing the "classic fino":

We have some of those guys go to our big parade in Portland Oregon. Pretty impressive to see in person.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

Oh my, this reminds me when I trailered over to another riding facility. There I was working on dressage and this lady comes in on her Paso Fino. I had never seen one before and I had DEFINITELY never seen that gait before! I thought he had a nerve dysfunction! but I looked it up and found out I was very wrong. It isn't my cup of tea, but it is quite unique.

Makes you wonder if those zippy little legs get cramped or tired!

That's what we were wondering Solon! It looks like an absolutely exhausting gait, I wonder if it causes them to get tired quickly or if they're just used to it?

Don't get me wrong, I find it absolutely fascinating, it just struck us as almost hysterical to see a horse move like that! We're so used to seeing extended trots or high stepping Saddlebreds, I just never in my life imagined a horse could move that way!

When I first saw it in a video before seeing it in person, I thought someone had sped up the video but then everything else wasn't sped up. It was really perplexing at first!

They are so odd looking, with those huge necks and big shoulders, but such a tiny looking body.

Beautiful, just odd!

All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of board, and he'll listen to me any day.
