In Mexican state of Tabasco, inserted in the region of the Tabasco mountain range, just next to the Madrigal hill, Don Federico Jiménez Canett founded Hacienda Santa Lucia in 1881. Since its beginning, it has been characteristic as a cattle and cattle breeding farm. This equine production had to be outstanding, due to the fact that in those days, the only means of transportation was the horse itself or by boat across the rivers in the area.
These riders would travel over 12 hours into the mountain range, into the capital city of Villahermosa. In order to safely arrive, it was necessary to surpass nature’s hazards where the horses strength and temper were avidly put to the test. For that reason, Spanish stallions were utilized giving these horses more strength, size and incomparable beauty to our horses.
