In honor of Cinco de Mayo & since I can’t think of anything else, a web tour of horses in Mexico.
[Do not surf on “mexico horse” unless you have a strong stomach for shock photos. Don’t know what that had to do with with my search query. I didn’t ask. I think I found my limit on how free the Internet needs to be. Now I’ve made you want to go look. Don’t. Really.]
The Dutch Warmblood Cinco de Mayo ISF Star
The National Horse of Mexico is the Azteca Horse, an Andalusian & Quarter Horse/Criollo cross. Never heard of ’em. Now I want one. Check out the barn candy at AAHIA. Azteca info from the International Museum of the Horse.
La Federación Ecuestre Mexicana: salto, dressage, concurso completo, rienda, paraecustre, endurance.
Comite Olimpico Mexicano, a 2012 show jumping team is in there somewhere.
I’m sure it’s unPC, but we’ve all done it in the back of a pick-up truck: riding Mexican.
