Extremely sure footed and agile. They have a calm, gentle demeanor & steady temperament. 


Because they are quick learners, it is easy to train them and they need very little guidance from their riders once they understand their job.


For the more experienced rider, the Azteca can be a dream come true, especially if you want a breed that is as versatile as hardy

The Azteca horse was bred for ranch work and to compete in traditional Charreadas Mexican-style rodeo..
