All horses are microchipped and registered with the New Zealand Iberian Horse Association (NZIHA) and the Paso Fino Horse Association (PFHA) (USA).
They are regularly wormed, hoof trimmed and had dentristy. Their feet and teeth are as well conformed as they are according to the people who treat them!
If purchased as foals or youngsters it will be agreed that they will not be ridden before they are three years of age. Our horses will be sold only to good, kind homes.
Abi Ricketts ofAbi's Natural Horsemanship has worked with some of our horses.

Winnfarms Miraflores DOB 13 Dec 13 is by the Mundial (World) Champion stallion Santana del Cardo (photo to the right & videos Paso Fino page) out of Winnfarms Spanish Stud’s foundation palomino mare Azafrán de Omega (Saffie). Her name Miraflores translates in Spanish as “Look at the Flowers”.
Mira is about 14/1hh (145cm) and of very robust, Spanish horse type. She is very friendly, intelligent, easy to catch in the paddock, load, float, worm and has travelled great distances for some rides although not ridden frequently. She is very protective of her clan (including me!), and quite the boss mare.
Her movement is quite smooth, straight in front, athletic, forward moving with loads of brio (controlled spirit/work ethic). Video clip of Mira ridden in paso corto when she was just over three years of age is viewable on our home page.
Mira has been good on the roads with general traffic when in company. Mira needs more experience to gain confidence when ridden alone but goes well when ridden with one other horse or in small groups. She just needs a few more miles. About a year ago I got to experience Mira’s fantastic paso largo on a dry lake bed because the group of us had no barriers and we really got moving.
The farrier has complimented us on the health of our horses’ feet here, and the equine dentist has said the horses’ teeth are well conformed to go with their general good conformation.
Mira is pregnant and due late October 2018; the sire is the purebred black stallion Primero Mercurio who is beautifully and consistently gaited and has a lovely nature. He is pictured in final photos; photos courtesy of Kirsten Benson. We reserve the right to name the foal and will pay for it with foal registration. All other costs are of course the responsibility of the new owner at the time of birth.
Please contact us as listed even if you just want to talk Paso Finos! There is never any pressure from us to buy.
Price for Mira is NZ$8500.
Price is plus GST if the buyer is registered for it.
