question I how does one explain the paso fino? a mule? is he a
As far as I can determine, a true paso fino is actually a breed of
horse. However, it is also used to refer to a gait that is taught to some
gaited mules, which, of course, would be actual mules. I am certainly no
expert in this area, though, so here are a couple of web sites with some
more pertinent information for you:
"The Peruvian Paso Horse versus The Paso Fino Horse: A Brief Comparison" -
"American Gaited Mule Association" - http://www.mules.com/agma/
Hope that this is @ least of some help,
