Here's the Wiki link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azteca_(horse)

I don't know if this is ok to post, but this photographer has a ton of Aztec pics.

He is 15.3 hands tall and 1100 pounds. So he is considerably larger than most Arabians. He is a thicker built horse than my Quarter Horses for sure, so a lot of his body looks more Lipizzaner to me (such as his topline, his collection) his face is dished like the Arabians but again larger, very pretty IMO. Long mane and tail can come from either side. He is very collected and very smooth to ride, seems like he has a lot of athletic abilities. He is currently green broke however, and will just be my fiance's trail horse.
I would say temperment wise he is "a bit more horse" than my foundation Quarter Horses. He reminds me more of the appendix Quarter Horse here (thoroughbred cross) he isn't "hot" or "flighty" and not a nervous horse. He is typically the boss, very courageous and not afriad to try new things. Smart. All around, a nice mix of a WELL BRED foundation Arab and a Lippi. He didn't take too much after his Arabian dam which is great for me since that isn't my choice of breed to have. Hes been a good boy, set in his ways and ready to put up a fight where he wants to but will go to the end of the world for someone who knows what they are talking about.

Awsome thanks,

Can definantly see there is more Lippi than Arab. I work at yard on weekends where they have a Lippi stallion, he looks very similar, His ride has lots of rocking movement but not so much forward.
I preffer the thincker horse myself. Arab is supper pretty and there brain is great to do ground work and play with but to ride I preffer thicker.

He sounds like a realy good combination of both breads. WHat are your thoughs on Lippi x Quarter Horse? You mentioned your Qaurter Horses. any chance of a couple of pics.

I was thinking you wouldnt loose any thinkness and the brain should be great. I was thinking you may get some movement from Lippi, and some forward from Quarter, with out the spooky. I could be wrong im not a breader at all, more of a dreamer at the moment. Iv decided to go on a trip over the holidays and visit a couple of studs including a Quarter Horse stud down towards the Midlands.

How did you find your boy in the pics?

Thanks for the info!

This guy is a Lipizzaner x TB. I would guess a Lipi x QH would be a decent cross, depending on the horses involved. He's owned by a friend of mine, can jump the moon, and has fabulous dressage.

I'd think Lippi X Appendix QH may be a good cross. However I'm very unsure about Lippi X Foundation QH.

Yes a lippi crossed with a lighter, taller horse makes sense to breed some athletisism into the lippi. But crossing with a QH is thouroughly confusing. What is the purpose of the horse?
