The type varies somewhat due to the fact that these horses may carry a portion (up to 50%) of non Paso blood. The goal is to breed a horse which is spanish in type, of medium size and good natural gait. The gait should fall in the middle of the spectrum, being neither pacey nor trotty, with moderate action and good overstep. The horse should have clean, sound legs, a well proportioned body and an attractive head upon a well set on neck.
Several horse breeds have been successfully crossed with Pasos. In Australia and New Zealand, these breeds have included American Saddlebred, Standardbred, Andalusian and Australian Stockhorse. There are also a number of Paso Fino x Peruvian Paso horses.
