    We have two horses that we need to find homes for asap. We sorta rescued these horses, but not for free, as the people were not feeding them properly. The Paso Fino is a Mare, 3 years old, Show quality, with Capachino bloodlines. She is available for registration. My husband just broke her to saddle. She is still very slightly underweight. 14h. and healthy, and she is a chestnut. She has all her shots but is due for West Nile next month. I think her coggins is still good, but I'll have to check. The Missouri Foxtrotter is a gelding. He is 15 years old, healthy, up to date on all shots, will also need west nile booster next month. He is a little over 15h, and he is not underweight anymore. We have his registration. But he hasn't been ridden in about 6 months. Just been in his paddock and my husband worked with him on the ground. (He is a gentle horsetrainer, and likes to start new horses from the beginning, no matter what people tell us). We haven't had time to try to ride him.
    We need great homes for these horses asap so we are selling them for a LOT less than they are worth. If you are serious, please email us at [email protected] and we will email you photos and answer any questions.We are located in Se Georgia.

    Paso Fino $1000.00 (Value is $5000.00) Able to be registered with PFHA
    Missouri Foxtrotter $1000.00 (Value is $3000.00) He is registered with the Ms Foxtrotter Assoc. Papers in hand.

    Oh so nice to hear of a Capachino bloodline Paso Fino mare available....too bad the market for Paso Finos here in Illinois is pretty bad and alot of them would be sold such in a very low price, almost free. The registration fees on new horses are so expensive and sometimes some of us dont bother registering horses anymore. I used to be a member of the PFOBA for at least ten years before I got out of the bandwagon politcs swhen the prices of registration and all the fun things were too high and not cost effective to register Pasos anymore. However we would hand down the required signatures and so forth to get the horse if the buyer chooses to do so and pay everything to get his horse registered with PFHA.

    Lately I have been seeing more and more Pasos getting affordable than I used to see in the last ten years.

    It would be nice to post pics in this forum! I also love MO Foxtrotters...they are beautiful horses but Pasos won my heart hands down...sorry [​IMG]

    My husband used to show and train Paso Finos. He got out of it too. Sometimes he would like to go back to it, but we went to a show in Jax, FL not too long ago, and it was terrible. There really are too much politics going on. As far as horse prices go, they are almost giving away a lot of horses here. I don't know if it is the economy, hay and feed prices, or what.

    I think the economy hay/grain/fuel prices has a lot to do with horse prices right now--I don't know anything about the Paso "scene" (I do hunters, in the VA/MD area) but I keep hearing that nice, nice horses, pretty much across the board--any breed, discipline, etc.--are just selling dirt cheap. The market has been going south for hunters for several years now, but I think things have really took a dive here lately.

    Good luck finding these guys homes!

    Not to bad mouth about the Paso Fino world itself, I have seen too many politics going on in the show ring and off ring. Abuse is getting out of hand in some farms for a quick instant results.....

    My pet peeve about the Paso Fino shows in the riding classes particularly the fino and performance classes, they would go across the fino sounding board and stop or very very slow on the board which the rules clearly states that the horse and rider must go at an even pace, not stopping or slowing down which would be penalize the horse of its placements. Unfortunately, it is still going on......show offs if you ask me and I see nothing but cranking the horse down that its un natural. Plenty of bad or ill tempered Pasos which is not the trademark of the breed.....all those Colombian hype was the rage in the last decade or so. Puerto Rican Pasos pretty much fell off to the way side for a great deal.

    I think its due to the ecomony and sometimes breeders breed alot, swamping the market like it did for miniature horses which I got out of it. Its a buyers market if you ask me!

    I would still have Pasos but out of the limelight and the fads and trends going on in the Paso Fino world.

    Rosalie McWilliam and the Ratliffs (El Pastor owners) are the two nicest people I've met. The older folks in the Paso World back in the 70's and 80's contribute alot to the breed and not stuck up to themselves and educate and promote the breed itself was all worthwhile.

    Hey Ewe, you are absolutely right. I was never into the paso show scene, but as I said my husband was (in the 80's I believe). I agree with you totally on the "abuse" thing. That is one reason my husband never got along with them because he is a gentle John Lyons/Pat Parelli type trainer, and they believed in that fast, "make them do it" kind of training. It is a shame. One of our horses has already won ribbons as a weanling. They wanted us to nominate him, I said "no thank you". I sometimes see things that people do not when I'm at the horse shows. For me, I'll stay with pleasure riding. I am training a young one now with Burt's help. Yes, it has taken some time, but she is better for it. Patience is the key with horse training. Too many people want to just jump on and ride.

    Hey Writer

    Actually you are in the best place for transport! There are always transporters going that way, and that means you can get a cheaper price for transport, because they are taking other horses there. There is a place online called travelinghorse.com you can get quotes from everybody who is going that way. Just a thought. We only have one Paso Fino Mare left to sell, and we have a Missouri Foxtrotter that is also very beautiful. He is a gelding. I believe the others are taken. She is broke to saddle. If you are interested, since you are so far away, we may be able to work out a deal and consider selling them a little less. Perhaps half the cost of transport. You should be able to get transport to New Mexico for two horses for around $600.00 , maybe cheaper. Seriously! There is a transport service that is on Travelinghorses.com, I can't remember the name of the service, but I know the guys name is Mario and he is spanish. [​IMG]
