Message From Our President
Welcome to the Mason Dixon Paso Fino Horse Association website. Mason Dixon is a diverse group of people who are passionate about their Paso Fino horses. The Mason Dixon region covers Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and New Jersey. As you will see as you explore our website, our members participate in a variety of activities from regional, national and international shows, cowboy mounted shooting, rodeos, competitive trail rides, endurance rides, western dressage, parades, clinics, team penning and casual rides to name a few. The Paso Fino horse is one of the most versatile horses, with a spirit and intelligence that are unique.
Our region offers multiple activities to participate in during the year. We regularly run highly popular demonstrations at both the Maryland and Pennsylvania World Horse Expos. Our annual horse show is held in May at the Dream Park in New Jersey. Clinics are offered at various farms in the region throughout the year, and there are opportunities to participate in parades and trail rides. The annual meeting held in the fall allows us to celebrate our members’ accomplishments for the year, as well as plan for the upcoming year, and vote on regional and national issues.
I hope you will reach out to any of the board members or ambassadors if you have questions about our wonderful Paso Fino horses, or our region. We look forward to seeing you at our next event.
Ann E. Bastian, V.M.D.
President, Mason Dixon Paso Fino Horse Association
