I've been using the term 'classic' for the well-known lateral-gaited Paso Fino because Colombia has been developing diagonal-gaited horses by crossing Paso Finos with Lusitanos and PREs. They are little known outside of Colombia and are bred in three separate gait styles. Not well set in type, they are not yet official breeds; currently considered Paso Fino subtypes. This is a Colombian Trote y Galope Paso Fino stallion.
How beautiful is this mare? Her name is Etnologia and she was recently sold at an auction for a staggering $455,814! Etnologia has had a glittering show career, including being named best in show at Bialka in Poland in 2005, Polish National Champion top five mare in 2009 and 2010, European senior bronze champion mare in verona in 2011, and World Senior top ten mare in Paris last year.
