My sweetest dream is to have a paso fino or peruano one day.

They look like a beautyful, small Andalusian, they are smart and clever but they have a high-tempered nature.
They are gaited horses, speciality is the "paso" it's a kind of step (paso means "step") which can be found only within closed paso breds. As much as I know halfbreds usually don't have this gait.

Your boss is a lucky man.

Sorry not a fan of paso finos. I rode some and I'll admit they are smooth, but not enough for me to fork over that much money. Just my opinion. They have really odd looking gaits.... Paso Largo, Paso somethin else..... Idk they are known for moving their legs in a quick four beat gait that is really smooth, but I think it looks really unnatural. A lot of people ride them in special paso fino hackamores too. That's just something I've noticed with my limited experience with them. If the horse your boss has doesn't gait naturally I wouldn't invest in fixing it..... that can get pretty costly

Beautiful horses. The gait is amazing (I'm a fan of gaited horses).

Best of luck to your boss.

i personally love pasos. they are beautiful if you find the right one and i love their gates. I got to admit though, some of the gates scared me at first the first time I rode one and took some getting used to. Although i've never owned one, I just had a friend who had one that I would ride once or twice a week.

I heard that a paso can't canter and trot but only that walk of theirs?
But when I read about them, they can?
Somebody can fill me in about that?

They are beautiful though!

the can canter. im not sure what its called though. imo its a bit different then a reg canter. for me it was really weird between the "walk/trot" they do and the canter. i guess its just something you have to get used to.
