Performance gaited Paso Fino horses provide a ride as exiting as a sports car and just as smooth!
The Performance Gaited Paso Fino Horse
also performs in a lateral, not diagonal gait. The sequence of the hooves are: right rear, right fore, left rear, left
fore; the hind foot touching the ground a fraction of a second before the front foot. When performed on a hard surface, a
definite 1,2,3,4 beat can be heard. This serves to eliminate the jarring effect of a true pace and causes the rider practically
no up and down movement. The motion of the horse is absorbed in the back and loins giving the rider comfort. This two speeds
of the performance gait are performed with more lift and action and power in the front hooves and the
collection of the carriage decreases as the speed increases. PASO CORTO A more relaxed form
of the gait that is commonly referred to as the natural Paso gait. Paso Corto is the ideal trail and pleasure gait, executed with only medium collection and light contact
on the bit. Most Paso Fino horses prefer this gait to walking. PASO LARGO The speed form of
the gait. The same 1,2,3,4 rhythm must be maintained and the rider should appear motionless in the saddle as he should be
at all speeds of the gait.
Performance Gaited Paso Fino Horse offers tremendous excitement as you feel the power beneath you and wonder at the smoothness
of the ride.
