    Saddlebred x friesian crosses are extremely popular in the dressage world right now. They are nice horses. (generally, anyway).
    Personally, I would wait longer then a week to breed. I have had horses take as long as a month to settle. It also depends on their own cycle and when the mare comes into heat.

    Sorry, have to disagree with you there. Although how a horse is raised has a lot to do with how they act/react to people and their environment a horses breed DOES make a difference.

    QH are known for their calmness. Some think their "deadheads" or have no personality. That's not true either (no personality) but they ARE a calmer breed in general

    Belgians and many other Drafts are very calm.

    Arabians on the other hand are not as calm. They are known as a "hot" breed. IMO this is because they are so intellegent, and many people don't know how to handle that, but they are "different" (not bad, just different)

    TB's are the same way.

    Think about the gaited horses. It is not the way they are raised, it is in them genetically to be gaited. Why should be gaited be genetics and not "temperment"?

    Personally, I breed for temperment, and I have found in the horses I breed, they are intellegent, yet very willing and sweet. It is BRED into them. How? By finding that type of Stallion (I own one, possibly two, he's a stallion prospect) and the right type of mare.

    Now, could you make one of my babies mean? Sure, if abused they could turn rank, but they didn't start out that way. Some horses are BORN rank. It comes from a combo of a poor mare and stallion and poor upbringing/training.

    I have also cross bred gaited to ungaited. Sometimes they end up gaited, sometimes not. But the potential between this cross is very exciting. I would LOVE to see a Buckskin with feathers who is gaited! How awesome would that be!!!??

    A week was a general idea. Obviously they would have to be in season, and settled into the new place. BUT, if within the week they were calm and happy and settled, and in season, then yes, they would be bred.

    Hmm I really disagree on that. I have found many of these in opposite things. Quarter horses for instance I have a friend who owns one not so laid back, i've seen neighbors with some not laid back and I ride one that is not exactly laid back. If he wants to go he'll go. It has nothing to do with the breed. Take it like this for example...........
    Humans are all not in the same way its like saying a white person is crazy a black person is loud and a mexican will kill someone. That's labeling.
    And everything I just said is not true and not what I think I just put stuff down. So its not the breed of horse that says personality or the way they are its the horse. If your talking parents wise i've seen some situations were that doesn't come in at all. The parents of a horse can be very calm and the baby can be hyper and a little devil.
    You can not get personality and the way a horse is by its genes. I am nothing like my parents. You don't get stuff like that from genes.
    What people are saying a horse is like is all labeling if someone would teach people this stuff you would know.
    Do you think quarter horses are calm and innocent and nice? Go ahead give me your answer.....
