WHAT IS A DIAGONAL PASO HORSE?

A Diagonal Paso Horse is usually a term used to refer to a Trocha Pura, Trocha y Galope or Trote y Galope horse. The Paso Fino Horse Assoc. competitions offer classes for Trote y Galope and Trocha horses. Diagonal Paso horses can be ridden collected or with extension. This quality makes the breed very versatile. In native Colombia the breed is sought after as prized show horses and ranch horses. In the USA they are used for Show, Western, English, Jumping, Trail obstacle, Dressage and general recreational riding and trail riding.

Diagonal Paso horses come in a variety of colors except in Pinto. They range from 14 to 15 hands tall.

WHAT IS A TROTE Y GALOPE HORSE?

The Colombian Trote y Galope Breed is fairly new to the United States. The breed developed originally as a cross between Lusitano and Paso Fino Horses. The Lusitano contributes to the height, power, and diagonal gait while the Paso Fino influence is in the horses brio (spirit), quickness, sensitivity to aids and smoothness of movement.

The “trote” is a two beat, much exaggerated diagonal gait, but without suspension. The trot is powerful yet comfortable and there is no need to post. The horses look as if they are marching.

The “galope” or canter is a movement of forward diagonal propulsion in three beats: the first stage begins with the striking of one hind leg; the second stage is taken by the opposite hind leg and the foreleg diagonal to it; then the third stage is completed when the last foreleg hits the ground. The beat makes a 1-2-3, 1-2-3 sound.

Typically their manes are “roached.” It was originally done for practical purposes, as many are working horses in Colombia. It is not a requirement for show, but it is done in order to accentuate their characteristically thick, regal necks.
