All AMERITANOS qualify as Aztecas -
but very few Aztecas qualify as AMERITANOS!

can be registered with IALHA - & the Azteca registry.

Ameritanos can compete in USDF &  IALHA events
as well as NRHA, NCHA, and many other events.

An AMERITANO is a special cross between a Portuguese Lusitano - and an NFQHA horse certified at 90% or higher.  If one parent is an IALHA S/P it must be a minimum of 75% Lusitano (no more than 25% Andalusian).

If you are looking for a great Using Horse that will be a joy to train and ride, the Ameritano (aka Azteca) may be the horse for you! Combining beauty, athleticism, and smooth graceful movement with natural cow sense the Ameritano will be an all around horse from working equitation to ranch horse.

Jaz Ranch has been a premier breeder of NFQHA Foundation Quarter Horses for 28 years ~ and we feel our NFQHA grulla mares are the perfect cross for our Lusitano stallion, E Preto - combining the best of both worlds. (Of course we are also still producing some NFQHA Foundation Quarter Horse babies!)

Our 2018 Ameritano (Azteca) foal crop by E Preto is here ~ all grullo & black !
1 black stallion - 3 Grullo stallions - 1 Grulla mare

Above:  SOLD - E Preto's first Ameritano, Armani, a 2017 colt out of Jaz Ebon n Ash (100% NFQHA).  Armani is everything we hoped for in the cross.  Gorgeous, elegant, super smart and willing.  Now we just have to wait to see if he possesses the natural ability for the wide variety of events from dressage to working cow horse that we fully expect.


Above:  SOLD: Acero, Melissa's first Ameritano from Jaz Ranch, Cabalitto de Acero (Calido CD x Heflin's Steel Jaz) excelled at every turn and Melissa said he was the best horse she ever owned, so Armani has big horseshoes to fill!  Melissa and Ty Fowler have a huge working cow ranch where Armani will be put to the test on a myriad of tasks.
