Forever with Us

Remembering those we've lost throughout the years that were influential to the breed and the Federation.

Eduardo Figueroa Conde

Born in Vieques, Puerto Rico, Eduardo was the son of the late Cunda Figueroa.  Continuing his father's legacy, horse training was his passion, and he was a long standing member of the Federation.   Eduardo was not only a renowned horse trainer, he also rightfully earned his place in the PFHA Hall of Fame-Riders.   He worked as head trainer for many years at the Palmetto Pride Paso Fino Farm, and his legacy will live on in the horses that he bred and trained throughout the years. Eduardo was always eager to share his knowledge of the Puerto Rican Paso Fino breed, and was a great mentor to many. His Presence will be greatly missed by all.

Pure Puerto Rican Paso Fino Federation of America

Gail & James Brown

Gail and James Brown dedicated over 30 years of their lives to conserving the Pure Puerto Rican Paso Fino. They were the original owners of Palmetto Pride Paso Fino Farm. Gail Brown was also a founding member of the Pure Puerto Rican Paso Fino Federation of America. She originally served as the treasurer, but was most well known for being the President for many years. Both Gail and James never hesitated to help those in need and were deeply loved by everyone they came in contact with. They're both deeply missed, especially at horse shows, but their legacy lives on through the Palmetto Pride farm.
