wanting to breed her

im getting a purebred arabian(she did have papers but the owner didnt get the right ones when she bought her)she is black and stands roughly 15 hh.she has all the arabain chariteristics,im hoping to ride her until next spring,then im wanting to breed her because im wanting a foal that I can train from the ground up and I've never had a chance to do that before because my other horses were my competion horses,she is just going to be used for light riding and breeding.but my question is what is the best arabian cross?im wanting to breed her to another rabian but the stud fees are so high on them.so im wanting a foal for trail riding and light competition in shows and western events.but I want a foal that still has the carriage of the arabian,and a refined head.but something that can last all day.any help here?

Arabians typically have very good stamina on their own so most other breeds you might cross with would probably be okay for that, I had a 3/4 arab 1/4 standard bred and she could go all day and never get tired and had very smooth gaits. But there are many possibilties.
If money is an issue though just keep in mind all the costs that could come up with when you breed. If you decide to go with a cross I would really search and find a stud you just fall in love with (or heck even if you go with an arab)

You will get some further comments on this thread that I will not address.

The two best and most consistant crosses outside of an arab itself is a TB or Qharterhorse. First crosses with these two breeds have proven to be the most consistant and if a decent stud is found.

If you are looking for something to train from the ground up here is nice sounding filly in TN, no idea if its near you, but just an idea instead of breeding yourself.

by the way not discouraging you from breeding, just offering alternatives. By the way did you check out the arabian breeders network site? They had some fabulous looking studs on there for about $1000. I think that is pretty reasonable.

yes horses are really cheap here too (I am in florida) there are too many horses out there right now... trouble is even though you can get them cheap or free they can cost a lot after you have them :) I would probably go for the arabian but maybe just visit each of them and see what they are like in person, maybe check out some of their offspring.

Horses are really cheap right now - especially foals. If money is an issue - you could probably buy a good quality foal for less than the stud fee & mare care costs.

If you really want to breed your mare, I wouldn't skimp on the stallion. Get the best you can afford. As to which one and what breed - that really depends on the mare. While she is an arabian, some conformation shots of her might give a better idea as to what lines she would be best suited with.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

I really shouldn't do this but I will anyway. Your horse, as magnificent as she may be, is a grade horse that looks like an Arabian. If you do not have the correct papers then it has to be classified as such.

Next, what you want and what you will get when you breed is a mystery until the moment of birth. By that time you will have a ton of money in the foal from vet bills and special care and you end up with a foal that no one but you wants.

If you want a X that looks like an Arabian then it is 100% easier and more accurate to find one that is for sale. You will know what you have and the price will be 1/10th of the cost of breeding. Since you don't want to breed until next year, that gives you 2 years to find the right foal.

My 2¢

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.
