    I have a Paso fino (above poster is my mom [​IMG])...

    Just got him last month [​IMG] ... But there is so much that we can do together. Shows, Trails, fun classes, hugs [​IMG] [​IMG] ... Pasos have been my favorite breed since I was a kid.

    I just found this the other day Study... It's a study aimed towards the genes responsible for gait... I thought it was interesting... but kinda silly they expect people to put all that time and effort into it and pay their own postage, with no compensation for participating, LOL.

    Me too, I LOVE Paso Finos! And the Peruvians as well.

    My uncle had MO Foxtrotters and they were neat!

    I've got two Peruvian pasos. My almost two year old filly is blue roan and my almost four year old gelding is a red roan. I can't imagine ever having to ride a trotter again.

    I have a Missouri Fox Trotter mare and a five month old MFT colt.

    You can do ANYTHING with gaited horses. It's a myth that gaited horses cannot do "normal" things. I trail ride my mare. My friend cuts cows on her MFT. Another friend does reining.

    I switched to gaited horses because I have a curved spine and riding a trot is very painful for me. The foxtrot is much smoother and more enjoyable for me. I've found I am starting to sit more straight and am able to spend more time in the saddle.

    Since you asked for pictures!

    My mare, (Foxy's Prissy Princess) aka Apple:





    My colt, Thunder's Spyder Prince aka Spyder/Spydie





    Hey, you asked for pictures! [​IMG]

    This is my MFT Trooper with DGD Jimmijo


    Will not ride any other breed, they are the best ride for bad backs

    Thank- you, I will try to add photos, not very good at that yet.

    That's (Classy ) a red-chocolate mare I home bred with my bestfriend. She is a Bay with a Silver Dapple gene Rocky Mountain.
    She was 5 months old in that pic.
