The Peruvian Paso is the only horse in the world with termino, a distinctive action displayed by the front quarters of the horse as he performs his gait. It's a graceful movement where the forelegs are smoothly rolled dramatically toward the out- side rather like a swimming motion. The Peruvian Horse stands between 14.1 and 15.2 hands. Aficionados do not claim their horse is a"jack of all trades." They will proudly tell you the Peruvian Paso is an excellent riding, parade and exhibition horse. The Paso Fino takes its name from its smooth saddle gait, the paso fino, a short- stepping broken pace. The horse is distinct from the Pe- ruvian Paso. Deve|oped from strains of horses bred and raised in Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Columbia, the American Paso Fino is a combination of these diverse types who share a similar ancestry and several important character- istics. The pasofino means "fine walk." The horse was bred for this broken-pace gait performed with great collection, fully balanced with plenty of drive from the hind quarters. The paso corto is the horse's traveling gait performed with less collec- tion, longer extension and greater stride than the pasofino. The paso largo is the fastest of the Paso Fino's inborn broken pace gaits. The horse is exciting to watch as well as to ride. It gives the impression of great grace, presence and power. Valued for its beauty as well as ability, the horse has enjoyed a rapid rise in popularity ill thiS country. The numberofPaso Finos registered in the U.S. grew by 40 percent from 1990-94. Like the Paso Fino, other gaited horses are growing in popularity as people are increasingly interested in horses for pleasure riding. During the same period the number of regis- tered Missouri Fox Trotters and Peruvian Pasos has grown by 20 percenL There ale approximately 300,000 registered Ten- nessee Walking Horses, and their numbers are rising. New registries for other breeds of gaited horses, the Spotted Saddle Horse, the Walkaloosa, the Rocky Mountain Horse and the Icelandic Horse, have also been formed. In addition, there are new registries for the Mountain Pleasure Horse, the American Singl-Footing Horse, the Tiger Horse and the Racking Horse. This is happening at a time when ungaited breeds are experi- encing a decline in the number of newly registered horses. To obtain the names and addresses of any of the above registries, please contact the Pahrump Valley Gazette, 727- 5583. III 18111111 I I 7 Refinance At This Low Rate, Too!
