Contratercero is a white Paso Fino stallion who is moving at speed here doing what is called a Paso largo. That is when the horse does a four beat hoof fall at the speed of a canter or a gallop. The Paso Fino moves with grace and smoothness as he travels. The Paso Fino was bred for comfort and smoothness since the Conquistadors were riding for many hours.
The history of the Paso Fino horse began in Spain where the chance mix of breeds (Barb, Andalusian and Spanish Jennet) sparked the seed that became one of the world's finest riding horses. This unique horse has been called "America's 500 year old new breed." The Paso Fino horse was virtually unknown in the United States until the late 1940's but it has been bred in Latin America since the days of the Conquistadors. On Columbus' second voyage to the New World, he transported the ancestors of the first Paso Fino horses to Santo Domingo - now the Dominican Republic. Future voyagers would soon add their numbers in Mexico and South America. Used as the foundations stock for remount stations of the Conquistadors, these horses came to be know as Los Caballos de Paso Fino, "the horse with the fine step."
This artwork is based on a photograph and then painted to create this work.
