The STORY OF THE COSTARRICENSE IN NORTH AMERICA
The Costarricense De Paso is a wonderful DVD for those interested in this special breed. It features Gary Douglas talking about Costarricense horses and their recent introduction from Costa Rica into the United States.
The DVD was filmed and created by producer Jon May of HorseFlicks. Gary's own horse, a white Costarrecense stallion named Deseable, is featured on the cover and shows us why these horses are so special. Not only is his elegant high-stepping gait, strength and gentlemanly character obvious, but he can be ridden by thought alone; no kicking, pulling or tugging required. As Gary says, "Just ask him."
"Costarricense de Paso horses are trained this way. It's a different way of riding, which creates a unique connection based on friendship and trust between horse and rider. In Costa Rica, many horses are trained so that young children can ride them safely. They are also everything a more experienced rider requires." ~ Gary Douglas
