    Only a small percentage of the breed perform the highest degree of fino.

    The other 2 speeds of the gait are corto (speed of trot) and largo (ground covering stride equal to extended trot or canter +).

    Oops posted at the same time. I GUESSED RIGHT!!! WOOT GO ME!

    Wow so they are classified kind of a separate breed because of their gait? Weird.... Never knew that. Well I guess you learn something everyday! I don't know much about the gaited breeds....

    They are still the same breed of course, but just as the QH has different "types" (pleasure, running, working etc) we have types and lines that are best suited for and bred for specific disciplines and/or classes within the breed.

    While many people ride their fino horses on the beach or on trails, typically they would not be the same type of pleasure or trail horse that the longer strided horses.

    The gaits have the same sequence of footfall but the length of stride and forward speed is different.

    It's kind of like the difference between Arabian pleasure and park horses -- same breed, different way of going. Paso Fino classes are divided by modality (among other things) with classes for Pleasure, Performance and Fino. PintoPaso is right, the fino modality Paso Finos are the short-strided horses, highly prized in Colombia, but not what you want for going down the trail (unless you are reaaaaaly into taking your time and looking at your surroundings LOL)

    I think the OP was looking specifically for a fino stud, which is why people were recommending those.

    Wow lots of posts since I was last on here. Yes, I am looking for fino lines, as my mare is more of a pleasure mare, and I've been told that a fino stallion will balance her out foal-wise. She also has a longer back, whereas fino horses tend to be shorter backed.

    Thanks to those of you who have mentioned other stallions...just what I was looking for! I have looked at Corito de Vez, but since he's not fino, he's no longer on the list. He's a nice Paso though!

    And yeah...those Ladrillo lines are grumpy!! She's not necessarily grumpy, but she doesn't like to show affection much, although she follows my dad around at home and will leave her food to come pay him a visit--he loves her so much. But training wise, she was pretty stubborn and hard headed. Her dam was the same way, but the nice thing about these horses is that once they are broke/trained, they stay that way and they are very safe. Hopefully that part will get passed on to the foal, but not the stubbornness!
