On paper, Paso Fino translates to “he passed fine,” though in the equestrian world it means “smooth stepping”. Whether you’re a novice horseback rider who may be a bit nervous, or you’ve got years of sitting in the saddle under your belt buckle, you’ll appreciate the gentle gait of the Paso Fino horses at our horseback riding ranch near Houston. It’s a true bucket-list experience for any level of rider. Come check it off your list!
Cat Spring, Texas is Closer Than a Trip Abroad…
Having originally made their way from Spain, through the Caribbean, to locations as far away as South America, a few of these majestic creatures now call our ranch home. If you can’t take a trip to any of these exotic spots around the world, then plan a visit to our tiny town in Texas for access to these amazing animals. With tons of trails and 350 acres to explore, you’ll get a wide-open, far-away feel within an easy drive from bigger cities like Houston and Dallas. Plan your dreamy Texas staycation now!
Paso Fino Horses are Different, Which is a Good Thing!
The Paso’s natural, four-beat, lateral ambling gait, make them ideal for trail riding… plus they’re just fun to watch! Being in Texas, home to some of the best rodeo riders in the world, many of our local equestrians are used to Quarter Horses, Appaloosas, Thoroughbreds and Paints. And while these are wonderful breeds for barrel racing and calf roping, when you traverse the ups and downs of the trail, you’ll appreciate the Paso’s more gentle approach. Like the suspension of a car or mountain bike, it can make all the difference! You wouldn’t take your grandpa’s old farm truck for an off-roading adventure, or ride your kid’s tricycle down a mountain, would you? Come take a test-ride for yourself, they’re the Cadillac of horses!
