[QU
OTE=Dreamcatcher Arabians;1806506]A friend of mine bred a few Arab/Standie crosses and they were wonderful! Athletic as all get out and sweet personality too. Couldn't GIVE them away. I think a gal back East bought a couple for a song, and loved 'em, evented on them but here in OK, not sure if it was the Standiie, the Arab or the cross but she stopped breeding them because no one here would even look at them. I've found that prejudice against Arabs but didn't know that some folks felt the same way about Standardbreds.[/QUOTE]
Most likely both....
my friend in Germany bred them, and every single foal was absolutely to die for.
All it would take is people competing on them, and doing well, which, no doubt, they would, since standies do (proven) the hardest work of all working horses.
I'd love to get one, if I could find them.....

With the exception of Arabians, and recently some small start up breeders, The thing to keep in mind, is historically and even by biology horses have not been bred for endurance. In the wild horses sprinted to escape predators. Within a mile or so they either got away or got ate. If a predator wasnt chasing them, they simply moseyed along at a walk, form grass to water hole.
With mans breeding again, not for endurance, (talking endurance racing here ),, Horse were bred for sprinting, pulling, easy nature, size, color, dancing, fancy steps, etc. Not much attention to endurance racing outside of Arabians.

Morgan / Arab - best crossbreed I've seen, of ANY interbred pedigrees. Honestly, can't go wrong. They were my big sellers this summer.

I imagine they would do well in Alberta. And if you look at AERC results the farther north you get you see a few more morgans. They drop off down south. Same issues as QH, big muscles and heat.

I have a Arab/Saddlebred that did well in his younger days. I did mostly competitive trail rides with him. But he usually finished in the top 10 at any endurance rides we did.

At 18 he is used mostly for a trail horse right now. Still has a lot of go and faster than any of my foxtrotters.

He is the best $600 I eve spent

He sure holds that tail up when he walks, doesn't he? I had a grade saddle horse that held her tail up like that. I think it is so beautiful when they do that. :)

Oh, you should see him when he gets proud and starts to prance around, The trail really gets high. He puts it like a flag. But I can't find any of those photos

I would cross with an Akhal-Teke to increase my horses endurance, then breed it with a Quarter Horse and Morgan mix. so that way your horse will inherit the stamina of the Akhal-Teke and Arabian, the strong hooves of the morgan, and the speed and power of a Quarter Horse. I know that it is a lot of crossing, but this is just pretend.

I've had 4 Arab crosses and still have 3. The Morab (Morgan Arabian) I sold. I have a Standardbred, Tn Walker and MFT cross. Out of the 3, I think the MFT is the one that would make the best endurance horse. I met John Crandell this yr while camping/riding with my MFT cross in Sept. I told him I thought he should buy him. He looked at him and the next day asked me how much, but we were having a pretty good day of riding so I didn't give him an answer. Not sure if he was serious.
