Yes it is part of the judging.

I agree with Specialdelivery, that one horse sounds like a whole

I just totally have this mental image of a horse doing the "classic fino" in a wine vat, but like one of those robotic horse, where everytime they hit a wall they just bounce back and chug towards it again.


*giggles uncontrollably*

Oh man. Long day at work.

This is my girl:

There's a short clip there starting at 19 seconds showing her putting her boogie train in overdrive while free in the pasture. She does a bunch of bizarre gaits, and honestly I have no clue what they are. Sometimes she trots square, sometimes not. Sometimes she walks normally, sometimes gets pacey.

I know that on the trail she LOVES to get in the front and haul some hiney. She has never trotted under saddle, only does some type of gait. I'm not a Fino person so I don't understand the logistics of it.

When I got her, I was told she was a pony cross but I just so happened to trailer her to a Paso farm for a clinic and some people were raving on about my 'Paso.'

Since I got her, I'd had many thoughts that she was a Paso but didn't really know for sure. The people at this barn had me turn her loose in a field and they watched her move and said no question, she was at least half Paso, probably full.

Hu, ok! A few weeks ago she was diagnosed with DSLD and the vet who saw her also said she looks VERY Paso, and given the DSLD on all fours, thought it was even more confirmation. (it's very mild and with proper care she should be fine for light riding for years to come - or at least that's what we're going to aim for)

So, I guess I've had a Paso all this time and didnt' know it lol

Paso Fino Gait

I am the new guy on the block here but I can shed some light on this subject.There was a barn I was training at ,they had show Paso Fino's.They also had trainers there from Colombia living on the farm.My job was to work with the horses that were not Paso Fino's.Being kind all I am going to say is the training program for the horses is not something I could use.The Fino is not something they all do .There was one little filly there that would try to climb out of the stall when you entered the barn,the owners asked me to see if I could get her over this.I am happy to report that with patience I was, and you could walk in the stall and lead her out.The other option was for two guys to go in and jump on her neck.After this I worked with the filly and she was really coming along responding to whatevere I showed her,that was when the other trainers said I was going to ruin her taking away her brio,and they would take over.Since then I have been working Paso Fino's outside this location.They are very sweet willing little horses,they will gait very naturally.Last year I took over a paso stallion very wellbred ,what I have been doing with him is let him gait in quarto,or paso largo a little faster when more speed is requires we gallop,instead of holding him in and having him jumping out of his skin.Right now I am not the only one trying to soften the training approach for these horses but still in the minority.Hope this helps a little.

New to this! I own 2 Paso's. I felt the same way. Oh how funny they look!!! They are the most comfortable horse to ride. I love them. They are sure footed. My father owned them in the mountains of Arizona. They can handle any terrain. Very loving horses and want to please. Riding them is like sitting in a rocking chair. My daughter is even showing 1 of them in 4-h. All around great horses. Galloping on them is so cooool!!!!!

I am new here. But I been reading this thread about paso finos. Me and my husband are paso fino trainers, we have our own farm with all kinds of different types of paso finos. Just wanted to mention that in our training we use dressage training and a lot of work on the ground. You want them relaxed and soft. Some are talking about brio and that is there energy and willingness to work, not to be mistaken with a nervous or a tense horse.
We train paso finos as we would train any other breed.
And if you have a horse that can do the classic fino, of course you don't ride them like that all the time. For sure you have to build them up to have the strength to do it. Like any horse, for example a dressage horse you ride in piaff or passage, it is for a short period. We also canter them and some I ride in trot to. But most of them prefer to stay in the gait.
And we have an older mare that do the fino gait in the pasture.

Love 'em! So fun! I pretty much pee'd the first time I saw them move, I thought it was so funny. Then I got on, and fell in love. <3
