The Lone Star Expo Center in Conroe will host the Fandango Tejas 2014 March 14-16. The 3-day event will bring together Paso Fino horses and their owners from Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and portions of Louisiana for competition and a show.
About the Paso Fino Breed
True to their name, Paso Finos are the horse with the fine step. The breed’s Spanish heritage can be seen in their proud attitude, style and elegance. Paso Fino horses are known for being calm at hand, but full of energy, drive and stamina under saddle. Their gait is unique, quick, extremely smooth and totally natural.
The Fandango Tejas is sponsored by the Southwestern Paso Fino Horse Association. The SWPFHA provides many avenues for its members and friends to enjoy their Paso Fino horses, including the annual Fandango Tejas show. In addition, the region hosts horsemanship clinics, Fun Shows, trail rides, breed demonstrations, and competitive trail and jumping clinics. Members also enjoy team penning, roping, barrel racing, pole-bending, endurance riding, and soccer on horseback.
Members ride their horses in various parades throughout the region, such as the holiday parade and stock show parade near Houston. The SWPFHA’s all-Paso Fino youth drill team, FINISIMO, has garnered many national championships over the past few years. In addition, SWPFHA has traditionally supported Paso Fino marketing efforts at venues like the Houston and San Antonio livestock shows.
