The Amazing Azteca

This is Solana, my beautiful, sweet 4 year-old Azteca mare.

(You might notice that someone [who shall remain nameless] has gradually chewed off much of her name plate!)

For those of you who aren't familiar with Aztecas, don't worry! I wasn't familiar with the breed until just a few years ago. Originating in Mexico, the breed comes from crossing Andalusians with Quarter Horses. This produces amazing animals that capture the best of both breeds. For more information, follow this link to a nice description of the history and standard of the American Aztecas:
