What style of riding is this?

I found this video while trying to find horse shows in Miami. I'm new to the horse world and this is the first time I've seen a horse do this. It looks like the horse is flamenco or tap dancing.

I think they're either Peruvian Paso's or Paso Finos. It's very cool to watch though isn't it?

Yes it was! Thanks for responding. Do you know how they compete doing that? What is being graded (i.e. Speed, rhythm,etc.)?

I'm not really sure, so I googled it and came up with this.

The Smoothest Ride: Judging Paso Finos ... FAQ

And i'm guessing that they have them walk on the wood so they can hear the cadence and speed? Hopefully someone with more knowledge will come in and share their info! I love watching them preform

I just googled it and realized that its a breed not a style (I was wondering how would you train a horse to do that lol) Peruvian Paso - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Aside from how it seems to look so unnatural to me... all I can think is...

"Whose that, trip trapping on MY bridge!!"
