Tara Fino Ranch was started in 1993, with a small 5 acre farm in Sarasota, Florida and a 4 stall barn. I got hooked on the Paso Fino breed with my initial purchase of an El Pastor grand daughter ~ Pilotita Sin Par (a/k/a Tia).
I am available to provide my services as a "remote Personal Assistant" as well as bookkeeping and tax and immigration form services. I am also a Notary for the State of Florida.
I have been riding since I was six years old, and have had a love of the equine since before I could walk. With formal training in the United Kingdom, to western pleasure, to dressage, and hunter jumper training in Canada, and have put 12 equines undersaddle to date.
I also have over 30 years of accounting/bookkeeping experience and have 17 years of immigration service experience. I provide part time bookkeeping services as well as assistance with immigration forms.
Located just north of Ocala in Anthony Florida, I have ten of the most lovely acres in pasture with unlimited access to the surrounding riding trails.
If you don't own a Paso Fino ~ get out and experience one! Once you do ~ you'll fully understand why everyone says "It's the ULTIMATE RIDE!!"

We have lost a great great horse. On Dec 1, 2012 Tara had a heart attack brought on from over 8 weeks of fighting heaves. To all our vets: Dr. Adam Lusk of Ocala Equine, to Dr. Sanchez at UF Gainesville, we thank you for all you did for her. She was my first from her first breath and she will never be replaced in my heart. I hope to see her again when I too cross over the rainbow bridge. Forever in my heart and soul.
