Hacheta is Javier's dapple light gray trick riding horse. Hacheta has a muzzle that is darker than her coat and has a light mane and tail. Hacheta is obedient and obliging to Javier, but acts somewhat disdainful towards Spirit. Javier rode Hacheta in the charreada in Miradero's town fiesta, for Turo's midnight scavenger hunt, for Mr. Granger's mustang drive from Miradero to Rancho Conejo, and in Miradero's New Year's Eve parade.
Hacheta's name means "hatchet" in Spanish.
