They must complete several tests and ensure that they have not been bred with more than one of any bloodline.

Azteca History

The Azteca horse breed derives from Mexico. In fact, they are recognized as the national horse of Mexico. This particular breed of horses has not been around for several decades or even centuries like some other horses have been. Instead, this is a newer form of animal that has come into the world in the seventies. While they have been named as the nation’s horse, there truly was no one specific type to replace at that current time. The other breed that even came close to this type of status in popularity with the Mexican people is that named “Criollo”. If the Mexican people required any need for horses during the nineteen hundreds, they called upon their friends that lived in South American instead of having a breed all of their own. At that time, there were hundreds of cowboys who were referred to as churros that had a strong desire to obtain horses that they could use for speed and even to fight bulls, a pastime which the Mexican people are so fond of.
