Breeding & Raising
Preserving the purity of the breed
Over the years we have bred and raised many of the Paso Finos that we currently have at the farm. Most all our horse have "found" their way to us. Not all were bought to show, they just needed a home. We have several multi-National and Grand National Champions at the farm. We have multiple generations of various blood lines, many of which are from the top competitors in the breed.
Our Horse Breed
The Paso Fino name means 'fine step'. The Paso Fino is a blend of the Barb, Spanish Jennet, and Andalusian horse and was bred by Spanish land owners in Puerto Rico and Colombia to be used in the plantations because of their endurance and comfortable ride. All Pasos share their heritage with the Peruvian Paso, the American Mustangs, and other descendants of Colonial Spanish Horses. Puerto Rican and Colombian horses, as well as Paso Finos from Cuba and other tropical countries, have been interbred frequently in the United States to produce the modern American Paso Fino show horse.
The Paso Fino is a naturally gaited light horse breed dating back to horses imported to the Caribbean from Spain. Pasos are prized for their smooth, natural, four-beat, lateral ambling gait; they are used in many disciplines, but are especially popular for trail riding.
