Our Paso Fino Horse Farm

Greengait Farm Paso Finos

Located in the mountains of Western North Carolina (Tryon, NC) about 40 miles from Asheville, GreenGait Farm Paso Finos started informally in the year 2000 with Bill and Judith Kerns looking for a closely matched pair of horses to be a part of their wedding plans. Judith brought many years of riding and breeding experience in the horse industry to the union and Bill brought a deformed hip, low golf handicap, and a ton of enthusiasm. As a part of their search they attended the Piedmont Paso Fino Horse Association’s Asheville Show. Their hearts were won over by the smooth gait, natural elegance, intelligence, and willing disposition of the Paso Fino Horses. Soon thereafter a pair of Paso Finos became residents of GreenGait Farm, and transportation to their wedding.

Several Paso Fino additions later, Judith decided to fulfill a childhood fantasy and enter the show ring with some of our horses. Our first year was an experience beyond our best expectations. Our Paso Fino Pleasure stallion, El Santon de United won most of his classes and several Grand Championship ribbons at shows in the Southeast. He capped the season off winning National Champion in the 4 year old colts/geldings class, and being awarded the high point stallion in his class by the Piedmont Paso Horse Association

Our second season proved even more successful with a National championship in the Pleasure Stallion class and as Reserve Grand National Champion Pleasure Stallion. El Santon received his Title of Proficiency award with over 500 show points earned and a second year as the High Point Paso Fino Pleasure Stallion in the Piedmont region. Paso Fino Mare, Maria Americano

While El Santon was collecting show ribbons, we were adding quality mares to our family of Paso Fino horses. Our breeding program strove to produce high quality show and trail horses. Several of our broodmares are top winners in the show ring and champions in their own right. This year our mares produced three beautiful fillies: Dominga, La Sonrisa de Sarah, and Marchaloca. Next year will see El Santon’s first offspring - we are very excited about that! For pictures of our beautiful horses make sure to see our GreenGait Farm Photos page.

A mild four season climate, coupled with a vast supply of some of the country’s best horse trails, makes Western North Carolina a great location for horse lovers. Our Paso Finos not only turn heads on the trails, they have proven themselves as the consummate trail horse, providing comfort, stamina, and a wonderful spirit.
