Have you ever actually ridden a Paso? I've ridden them for years, and I'm not sure why or how you can make wild accusations that it's "strange-looking." The gaits are completely natural for these horses; their Largo is ground-covering and has been bred into these horses to make for a smooth ride over long distances. It's no different from showing a dressage trotting horse in Piaffe and Passage for show. The high-stepping Corto or Passage aren't suitable for conserving energy over long distances, but it's used in show
. Pasos CAN and DO step out when asked, but the highly collected Corto is appreciated in showing.
Tell me, what do you actually no about Pasos?
