American Azteca!

I am getting an American Azteca horse. She is 1/2 quarter horse, 1/4 Arab, and 1/4 Andalusian. She just turned 4 on St. Patrick's day (her name is Clover ) and she is the smoothest horse I have ever ridden! She has the build of a QH, slightly dished face & smoothness of an Arab, and the coat of an Andalusian. She is a gorgeous gray dapple! Does anybody know any interesting facts about them?

Haha! That is so interesting! My horse Shaffiek is 1/2 QH 1/4 Arab and 1/4 Mustang. He doesnt quite qualify as an 'Azteca' but close :)

Congratulations!
When will you be getting her officially?

Sorry to say I am not familiar enough with the breed. Would LOVE to see pics of her.
Oh, and I think Clover is a great name!
Some how dapple and Clover just seem to go together in my head, LOL!

Ooh. Pictures! Pictures!

I see you're new. You should probably know that we're big on pictures for everything here. If you mention you're getting a new horse, especially one that's so different like that, you need pictures, my friend! Welcome to the forum.

I thought that to be an American Azteca, the horse could only contain certain Spanish breeds and QHs. Those who contained any other breed, are considered just grades, as any other mixed breed.

A friend of mine purchased one and was not able to register the horse because it contained some Arab in the pedigree. She paid good money for the horse, but when it came down to it, she was unable to register her with their registry. Basically, she was 'taken' by the seller.

Maybe they have changed their rules now?

I think the Azeca horse (the one that originated in Mexico & is the official sport horse of Mexico) can only be QH & certain spanish breeds, I THINK the American "version" can vary, but i'm not sure. I will have to double check. The funny thing is that she is actually an accident

I don't know anything more than they are gorgeous and if I could choose ANY breed or mix , I would chose an Azteca. I am feeling pangs of jealousy.

Congrats to you! ^^

Here is a bunch of information about them: Azteca horse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

But I'm not sure if your soon to be horse would really qualify as an Azteca. The only breeds that make it that would be the Andalusian, Lustiano, Quarter horse and the Criollo. They can be mixed with just Andalusian or Lustiano and a Quarter Horse or Criollo.

There isn't really a cross in registration for your horse. The only half quarter horse would have to be 1/8 criollo and 3/8 spanish or 1/2 spanish. (According to wikipedia, so it may not be right.)
