Romantico de La Oca

This week we welcome the beautiful bay Paso Fino gelding, Romantico de La Oca as our Horse of the Week. "Tico" is owned by Paso Fino Niagara, Robert Darling Stables in Fenwick, Ontario. He is 4 years old and stands at 14.2 hh.

He is currently in training, but has already received a second and fourth in his first show under saddle, in a class of five in the Fino Division and a class of fourteen in Performance. He was 4th National Champion Bella Forma (shown in halter and meaning "beautiful form") in Georgia, USA, 2005.  He will continue his show career in the fall fair circuit.

Romantico is seen here on the sounding board at the Eastern Canada Paso Fino Horse Association's Fun Show, July 2006 at Teen Ranch Orangeville. The judge listens for the evenness of the 4 beat gait as the horse travels over the board. You can see videos on the Paso Fino Niagara web site.

Congratulations to Romantico de La Oca for being our August 21st, 2006 Horse of the Week!
