Mid America Paso Fino Horse Association


Serving the five state region of Iowa, Minnesota,

Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota


Welcome to MAPFHA!

The Mid America Paso Fino Horse Association was established in 1979 by a small collection of Paso Fino enthusiasts who met for a trail ride and held the first meeting.  Several individuals and farms became active in breeding and training Paso Finos.  Since then, our region has grown as the smooth gait and brio of the Paso Fino have become more widely known.  Without a doubt, this is an exceptional and exciting breed.  



Anyone can join MAPFHA regardless of geographic location or horse ownership.  You will find this information on the "Join !" page.  Come with us and discover the world of the magnificent Paso Fino.
