You'd be better off buying what you want and not breeding another grade horse theres tons already on the ground ready to go.

Is she registered? What do you want this potential foal for? Trailriding, show, western or english?

An arabian can be registered half-arabian if one of the horses is an arabian, but with select breeds. But what are your plans with your foal?

I have absolutely no problem with breeding grade horses....as long as both horses are fantastic at their jobs and the resulting foal will combine both of their attributes towards a definite purpose. If she/he has the means for for a foal, with pregnancy checks and regular vet visits, as well as a fund for covering anything that might go wrong (and with pregnancy, there is a LOT that can go wrong), why not let them breed?

The problem I have is when people don't give a flying rat's @$$ about their mare's conformation, temperament, or training, and are breeding just to breed, or because they think it will be cheaper than buying a foal, or because they want a "piece of their mare", no matter how worthless the resulting foal by the free colt down the street might be.

To the OP. Can we see conformation pictures of your mare, along with any attributes she has and her bloodlines, so that we can help you match her with a complimenting stallion?

OP, your post leaves many questions unanswered and I doubt you will get any stud reccomendations on the info provided.

Why the wide variety of breeds?
What is your mare? Is she registered? Does she have fantastic conformation that screams breed me? What are your plans for the foal?

Can you raise a foal for less than you could pick up something similar for? Stud fees, vet care for the mare, raising the baby until it's of training age, cost of training, and on and on.

Breeding isn't something to be taken lightly. It should be done with an extreme amount of thought & planning as well as the knowledge it takes to raise a foal.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Let me help you to understand. Some crosses are the best horses there are at particular disciplines. The problem is not breeding mutts - the problem is using mutts themselves as breeding stock.

In the OP's case, she is wanting to breed an Arab to an Appy or QH - Araloosas and Quarabs make some of the best endurance trail horses there are if they are crossed properly, and she did clearly say she only does trails. Now whether her Arab is registered or worth breeding is a different matter - don't know from her post...it takes just as much savvy and good breeding stock to breed a good cross like an Araloosa or Warmblood as breeding within a breed, but you are making a mistake if you think breeding crosses is not prudent across the board...
