No, I've never used one. I use a regular western saddle. But here are some good ones: http://www.gaitsofgold.net/content/blogcategory/4/11/

I used to have a Paso Fino, a rescued old boy sired by "El Pastor". He was pretty barn sour, but was a ton of fun to ride.

What kind of bit are you using? Amigo rode better with a bosal or a hackamore. When I stopped him, I would pull/release/pull/release and told him "whoa" just once. I also did set back in the saddle too. He would stop with out many problems, as long as we weren't facing the barn. To easy him up, I would see-saw the reins and tell him "easy".

Have you thought of calling the people you bought him from to ask about how to properly manuever him? That might help. Paso's are great horses, and a lot of fun to ride. I miss ole man Amigo... he's since passed away of old age.

Hi Mitch, I train and breed Paso Finos. All trainers are different but as a general rule you do sit them to a stop, you do not use the bit to stop them. And using a stronger bit proably is not the answer. I would recommend trying a bosol (with the bit).

Do you know who trained him? Where are you located?

I agree with calling the people you bought your Paso from and asking them how he was ridden and trained. So many people train differently, and not just by breed.

You might even have to do some retraining with him. I'm retraining my horse from the ground up because I didn't know how he had been trained, or if it had been done properly, and I had no way of getting ahold of the previous owners.

You could be having a respect problem as well. You might to do some ground work with him, make sure he's respecting you etc.

I own a gaited saddle, its very lovely and looks just like any other western saddle. Although I don't currently own a gaited horse.
