paso fino

  1. Horses for Sale
    I am looking to buy my second Paso Fino, but unfortunately there are none for sale in my area (Kansas)! The closest one I have found is 5 1/2 hours away, and I want to get a lot of information on him before making that trek. He is not papered. To me, his gait doesn't look that great. I am...
  2. Horse Nutrition
    I have a 15 year old Paso Fino gelding that is a very easy keeper. He's been turned out on pasture with a grazing muzzle this summer, and that has helped his weight quite a bit. His neck is less cresty, and my farrier says he's seeing improvements with his hoof health. My question is, what do I...
  3. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I ride a specially trained Paso Fino gelding. We were told he was trained the specific style the breed is traditionally trained to be ridden with. They also used a particular style of hackamore, which my parents ordered online somewhere. It's seen quite a bit of wear and tear, and the color was...
  4. Horse Breeds
    Recently, a tragedy left a family friend's friend's family in a tight spot. They have three friesian paso fino cross horses and have asked if we would like to make an offer. Does anyone have experience with this cross? It seems odd to be, wouldn't the paso fino gait contradict the extended...

    "Zephy" is a gorgeous gaited Paso Fino, small framed and delicate looking, but strong and energetic. She has a super smooth ride, your seat will never leave the saddle. Stands for vet, farrier, grooming, fly spray. Zephy has lots of get-up-and-go! She has had MANY miles of trail riding...
  6. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I know, I know, not another saddle pad thread! I've read them all, but I have a specific problem: My Paso fino is very short backed, and so I am looking for a saddle pad for trail riding that will fit her well. My saddle is a custom made Kuda Endurance Trail saddle, and only 22" long. She...

    I posted in gaited but no response, so hopefully you guys can help! I'm super excited- I've been living in Puerto Rico for five years now and have finally decided its time for a horse. I grew up with horses but haven't owned since college. Never ridden a paso till moving here but now...when...
  8. Horse Conformation Critique
    I rode this sweet paso fino mare this morning. She is not pure paso but has the natural paso gait, owner says sire was pure paso but that she may have some Appaloosa because she has a few light white spots. (I'm not sold on this but whatever). She has not really been worked with for about a...
  9. Horse Conformation Critique
    Hi, I'm new here so bear with me if I'm posting in the wrong area. Just looking for a VERY mild conformation critique on this little paso- I'm in the market for a horse (my first after many years) and I live somewhere where pasos are highly valued (puerto rico). This is also a place where you...

  11. Gaited Horses
    I have a 13 year old Paso Fino mare. She had a lot of training issues when I got her, wouldn't gait, always trotted and was strung out, lots of respect issues. She has come a long, long way. She is now gaiting but still does not like to collect, which is a shame because when you get her...

    Hell, Could someone please help me in figuring out what the following phrase means in regard to the gaited saddle?>>>Corona Retrancas Cinca Contra Cinca<<<I do not know what part of the saddle this is..TIA
  13. Horse Health
    I am just worried that I am not doing the correct thing or if there is anything else I can do because it looks like it has gotten larger. First info on Shaggy: a six year old paso fino gelding redish in color, we feed him two flakes alfalfa for two feedings a day and he is in a "pasture"...
  14. Horse Conformation Critique
    I am very new to the forum, and I have been trying to help a family friend sell her Paso Fino gelding for quite a while. The owner doesn't know a lot about Paso Finos, she has been learning what people have told her over the last seven or eight years she has owned him. Now her daughter that had...
  15. Gaited Horses
    Okay so I just got a 17 yr. old Paso Fino in need of a LOT of work :? . I am willing to do it but don't know where to start. He has had professional training and is an ex show horse. He just hasn't been ridden... or groomed in years. ( So his owners say) I just don't know what to start with...
  16. Horse Breeding
    Hey all. I'm planning on breeding my 2003 Paso Fino mare for the first time next year, and think I've finally picked out the stud I want (after looking for years!). I'm not looking to sell this foal--I know it's not good to breed sedimentally, but I have my reasons to breed. First, as I live in...
  17. Horse Breeding
    Hi all. So, hopefully next spring (2012), I will breed my Paso Fino mare, Dream. I will not be selling this foal, as Dream is my baby. So, I've been looking at studs for the past 4 odd years, planning for a foal. So, here is some background on Dream: 14 hand, May 2003 model Registered with PFHA...
  18. Horse Videos
    Hey guys! I need a music video of Arthur, my paso fino, & I. I have a bunch of pix I wanna use, and I'll get more pix soon I hope and some video clips to incorporate into them. I really wanna use Inside Your Heaven by Carrie Underwood for the song, but that may change by the time I get the video...
  19. Gaited Horses
    HI Guys! A couple months ago I rescue a 4-year-old from the United States Equine Rescue League. They said he was a Paso Fino...I don't know much about the breed (other than their distinguishable gaits) and it didn't really matter to me. But in the past few weeks I've been told that he doesn't...
