PASO FINO HORSE-SENSE SEMINARS
& TRAIL RIDES
 

As a guest of our Retreat you have an unique opportunity to discover the awesome power and pleasure of the incredibly smooth Colombian Paso Fino. We are proud to offer Horse Sense Seminars followed by Trail Rides. The Seminars are tailored to accommodate beginner, intermediate, or the advanced riders and vary in duration depending on your collective level of expertise. If you complete the tasks taught in the seminar successfully you will be certified to ride a Paso Fino on the trail. During trail rides further instruction is provided on technique and gaits of the Paso Fino.

It is our philosophy that horses are "Spirit Animals" to be honored and revered. To have a safe and memorable experience on the Paso Fino, we believe you must first come to understand the power, intelligence, and unique nature of the breed. The seminars are conducted so that both horse and rider can get to know each other intimately and develop a mutual respect, acceptance, and understanding.
 
The seminars and certifications are provided by respected "Horse Whisperess"
Nicole Honait Luxor who has bred and trained Paso Finos since 1989.
