MiAmigoFino Contratercero is the subject of this artwork. I took a video of Amigo, the Paso Fino stallion yesterday and froze this one scene from it and then worked with it on the computer to create this painting of my fine friend.
Although the Paso Fino has been bred in Latin America since the days of the Conquistadors, this unique horse was virtually unknown in the United States until the late 1940's. Known for its loyalty, athleticism, spirit, graceful carriage, and exceptionally smooth ride, the Paso Fino is the ideal horse for the entire family.
A mixture of three European breeds - The Andalusian, the Barb and the now extinct Spanish Jennet, the descendants of today's Paso Fino were transported to the New World on the second voyage of Christopher Columbus. Used as a foundation stock for remount stations of the Conquistador, they carried their riders for days over mountains, open ranges, and dense jungles, paving the way for exploration and conquest.
Paso Finos are affectionate, intelligent, and built for fun! Today, the Paso Fino reflects its Spanish Heritage through its proud carriage, elegance, and natural four-beat gait. While Paso Finos can walk, canter and gallop like other horses, it is this smooth, natural four-beat lateral gait that distinguishes the Paso Fino from all other horses in the world and produces the smoothest ride imaginable. Paso Finos are not just beautiful, they are intelligent, affectionate, and built for fun and hard work. They vary in size from 13.2 to 15.2 hands and have a powerful neck with a graceful arch.
Paso Fino horses can be found in every equine color - with or without white markings - including bay, black, buckskin, palomino, chestnut, grey, roan, and even pinto. A well-conditioned Paso Fino can travel for hours without tiring, and because of the smooth gait, so can the rider... so whether you're looking for your first horse, a new addition to your barn, or a way to recapture the joy of riding after time away from the saddle, see for yourself why the Paso Fino is called the Rolls Royce of horses.
