History of the Azteca

In 1972 Mexican Charros began crossing select Andalusian stallions, with the best Quarter Horse and Criollo mares the country had to offer.  The Charros were seeking to produce a horse that had speed, heart, and grace, combined with outstanding cow sense to work their ranches.  The cross not only possessed the ability to work ranches but the versatility to go beyond normal ranch work.  This outstanding cross gained in popularity becoming the "National Horse of Mexico" and being named The Azteca.
