Azteca Horses

The Azteca is the National Horse of Mexico and is the first breed to be developed in Mexico. Until recently the majority of horses in Mexico were descendants of Spanish horses, such as the Galiceño, or imports from Spain or Portugal. The Spanish horse has always been favored in Mexico and the Andalusian was the foundation of the new breed. Read more.

* Azteca horses are registered as half-Andaluisans with the International Andalusian and Lusitano Horse Association (IALHA) in the United States.



Registries

In 1992 in Mexico, the International Azteca Horse Association was created to further the development of the breed on a worldwide basis. At the same time, regional affiliates were developed. For Canada, it is the Azteca Horse Association of Canada (AzHAC) and for the United States, it is the Azteca Horse Association of the United States (AzHAUS).

The worldwide Registry for Azteca horses is maintained by the Asociacion Mexicana de Criadores de Caballos de Raza Azteca (The Azteca Horse Association of Mexico) for the International Azteca Horse Association.

This is the only organization approved by the developers of the breed and by the Government of Mexico to register Azteca horses and to legally use the name "Azteca".
