The Corriente was brought to the "New World" by the Spanish in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries. They were well-suited to the difficulties of Atlantic travel, and were used for meat, milk, and travel in the brutal wilderness of Central and North America.

They are also used as rodeo bulls, because of their long horns and ample strength.

Thanks to baffo for pointing out that 'corriente' means 'ordinary' in Spanish.
