Characteristics: Although the Paso Fino walks and canters, it does not trot. Its natural, highly stylized gaits include the paso fino (slowest), paso corto (the preferred gait which is as fast as the trot) and paso largo (fastest). Each foot in the comfortable gait strikes the ground independently and in an even rhythm. The Paso Fino is a slight but elegant and refined animal standing from 13.2 to 15.2 hands high. All colors and markings are found, including pinto and palomino.
