At Rancho del Rey our goal is to promote Quality Paso Fino offspring that is best suited for the Trail and Pleasure class rider. The bloodlines we offer have been carefully researched for their ability to perform the pleasure gaits known as the corto and largo.
For more information on the Paso Fino horse please read the information below.
The Paso gait is essentially a broken pace, a lateral, not diagonal gait. The sequence of the hooves are: right rear, right fore, left rear, left fore. The hind foot touches the ground a fraction of a second before the front foot. When performed on a hard surface, a definite 1,2,3,4 can be heard. Propulsion is primarily from the hind legs yet the motion is absorbed through the back and loins. The croup remains relatively still.
These aspects eliminate the jarring effects of a true pace and causes the rider practically no up and down movement. This gait is performed at three speeds with the collection of the carriage decreasing as the speed increases.
This gait is natural to a Paso Fino horse. .
