Saddlebred? Paso Fino?

HI Guys! A couple months ago I rescue a 4-year-old from the United States Equine Rescue League. They said he was a Paso Fino...I don't know much about the breed (other than their distinguishable gaits) and it didn't really matter to me. But in the past few weeks I've been told that he doesn't look like he has an Paso in him but maybe some Saddlebred. Below are some pictures...your thoughts?

I don't know much about gaited horses but I know he does not have any of the Paso gaits and I'm told he is gaited although I've never seen it...he is smoooooth though. Trotting bareback through the woods is a pleasure though

He doesn't really look like a Saddlebred. I think he's a Paso, compare your horse's side picture to this horse.

So Tempest you think my Grayson will fill out a little more and end up a little thicker like this guy?

Maybe a cross? I have a good friend who show's paso finos he doesn't look anything like hers.

Definitely not a Saddlebred. I'd say TWH or Rocky Mountian if I had to say gaited, but definitely not Saddlebred.

That's not a saddlebred and definantly not a paso fino. I don't know what he is.. but I know he looks nothing like a paso fino or a saddlebred.. so I would say.. he's something else.. possibly TWH or.. if he's not gaited.. possibly a twh/qh cross.

It looks like he has some of the TWH conformation traits. However, if you have never seen him gait then he's probably some cross.

He is probably a cross, but could be a "largo" type Paso. Lots of them don't look like the show Pasos. They are lankier, taller and have longer legs. Definitely can't see any Saddlebred in there.

Not a saddlebred at all. TWH most definitely.

If he trots he isn't a Paso--Or at least that's what I've heard. Maybe a cross? He looks more like a Saddlebred than a Paso..Maybe a TWH? That's more what he looks like, personally..o.O

paso fino, saddlebred
