Biography

The Colombian Trote y Galope Breed is fairly new to the United States. The breed developed originally as a cross between Lusitano and Paso Fino Horses. The Lusitano contributes to the height, power, and diagonal gait while the Paso Fino influence is in the horses brio (spirit), quickness, sensitivity to aids and smoothness of movement.

The “trote” is a two beat, much exaggerated diagonal gait, but without suspension. The trot is powerful yet comfortable and there is no need to post. The horses look as if they are marching.

The “galope” or canter is a movement of forward diagonal propulsion in three beats: the first stage begins with the striking of one hind leg; the second stage is taken by the opposite hind leg and the foreleg diagonal to it; then the third stage is completed when the last foreleg hits the ground. The beat makes a 1-2-3, 1-2-3 sound.

Typically their manes are “roached.” It was originally done for practical purposes, as many are working horses in Colombia. It is not a requirement for show, but it is done in order to accentuate their characteristically thick, regal necks.

Conquista de Besilu’s sire Premio Mayor de San Marcos is a highly noted champion and breeding stallion in Colombia (see video of him in competition in Colombia on this page) and her grand-sire Duelo is a foundation sire of the Trote y Galope breed. This well bred mare has a gentle disposition with the right amount of brio. Her unique color, animated and powerful movement make her stand out in the show ring.

If you would like to enjoy an smooth animated trot, rocking horse canter and receive plenty of attention from onlookers wanting to know more about this unique horse then the Trote y Galope is a breed to consider.
