Summer 2023 Paso Fino Festival comes to Guayama on Sunday

By The Star Staff

Guayama Mayor O’brain Vázquez Molina and the Propaso Horsemen’s Association announced the celebration of the Summer 2023 Paso Fino Festival this Sunday, July 22, at 10 a.m. at the emblematic Parque Dulce Sueños (Sweet Dreams Park) in Guayama.

“This is going to be a great family activity with great attendance due to the value that we place in Guayama on our sporting traditions, such as the paso fino horse,” the mayor said. “The friends of the Propaso Horsemen’s Association have prepared a very well-organized program with some 45 categories from Mini Amazons to 5 years old, to the Foals and Horses Championship, passing through Riders and Amazons of different ages, Colts and Fillies. It is going to be a spectacular day and we invite you all.”

Guayama, on the island’s southern coast, is recognized worldwide for keeping alive the promotion of the paso fino as a sport and cultural tradition of Puerto Rico, since the prominent former mayor Don Genaro Cautiño Insúa brought the mother mare of the horse Dulce Sueño, considered the father of the Paso Fino breed and symbol of that breed, to the municipality in the 1920s.
