Picaflor de La Sierra..Paso Finos are bred to have good balance. Their legs aren't too long, nor is their body too heavy. Their hooves are hardy and rarely need shoes. They come in every equine color, including pinto, palomino, and even cream or buckskin. Paso Fino horses are usually 13 to 15 hands tall and always have a long, flowing mane and tail, kept in perfect condition.
Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride, Friendship without envy, Or beauty without vanity? Here, where grace is served with muscle And strength by gentleness confined He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity. There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent. There is nothing so quick, nothing more patient. ~Ronald Duncan, "The Horse," 1954
