About UsAbout Us

You love horses -- or at least you love someone who loves horses.  Why else would you come to our site?  We, too, adore the beasts and especially those Paso Fino Horses who move with 400 years of mysterious genetics guiding their unique steps into the smoothest forward motion you will ever encounter.  Oh, we'll explain all about their "gait" when you give us the chance.

Greener Pastures Ranch is committed to breeding, raising, training, showing and selling quality Pasos with the truest, purest heritage of gait available in this country.  We've been doing it for 45 years.  But you don't have to have longevity and experience to recognize a good Paso.  Lack of discomfort in your behind and your back will assure you that you've had the smoothest saddle experience of you life.  That'our Paso promise.

Greener Pastures has promising youngsters and proven show horses for sale plus a half century of information, experiences and fun to share for free.  We know the breed.  Stop by or call, look, listen and talk.  (Bring carrots.)  Next to horses, we like horse-people best.
