The Classic Fino gait is fully collected with very rapid footfall and slow forward motion.
The Paso Corto gait is moderately collected, with medium extension and ground-covering forward motion.
The Paso Largo gait is the fastest of these gaits with little to moderate collection, and rapid ground-covering motion.
In addition to these specialized gaits, the Paso Fino also execute the walk, and canter making for great versatility.
