Brief History of the
Paso Fino Horse

The Paso Fino breed is strong and resilient, but pleasant and natural to ride. Its gait is consistent and moderate, and even riders who must contend with limitations or have been injured in the past find themselves a comfortable partner in the fine Paso Fino horse. Its history stretches back over five hundred years to the Cordela and Andalusia provinces of Spain, and the path of its migration to the New World and into modern equestrianism is closely tied to the story of the nations and individuals that have defined the Americas since Columbus crossed the Atlantic centuries ago.
