Hi everyone. As some of you know I am looking for a gaited horse breed due to my back injury. Well in the Iwanna this week there was an add for a local Paso Fino Stable looking for someone to exercise thier horses and I thought hey that's a good place to find out info. So I sent the guy an email and explained to him my problem and he sent me one back for me to give him a call. I had to leave a message but he called me back today he seemed really nice and said he would be more than happy for me to come take a look at his horses and try a few out. He does not have any for sale right now but he does have some that are in training at his trainers. He was really nice and said that he is 99% sure that after I ride a Paso I will not want another. LOL He said he has had all of the gated breeds at one time or another and that the Paso is the Cadillac of them all. LOL I am still going to try the others breeds before I buy but I am so excited right now I don't know if I will be able to sleep tonight. So any tips before I go? He knows I have never rode a gaited horse and he said that was fine would not be a problem he would show me how to do it.
ETA: He also said a well trained Paso Fino would run around $3500 that sounds right to me but what do you guys think? I will be getting a decent size settlement for my back I hope and I plan on useing part to purchase the horse and am going to put a good amount in a saveings account in case of horse emergency.
