Andalusian x Arabian?

A while back(about a month or so)I was on craigslist just looking to see what people had posted and came across someone who an ad for an Andalusian/Arabian cross. I went back last night to see if the ad was there, but it is no longer listed. But when I first saw the ad I saved the pics of the horse. IMO she looks like a nice horse, but I am not a horse expert.

Here are the pictures:






I wish the ad was still there. But anyways, I was wondering if anyone has ever owned one, met one, trained one? If so what are they like?

Feel free to post pictures!

Nice horse.

You can't judge a horse's abilities or attitude or conformation simply based on breeding. There are too many variables. That would be like saying all pit bulls are vicious or all quarter horses are dull witted, or all TBs are too hot to handle.

That particular horse is nice. The next one might be a dog.

I don't expect all the horses of this cross to be the same and amazing, I am sure some will not be so good.

Anyone else have experience with this kind of cross?? If not, the breeds separately?

We have a 5 year old Hispano-Arab named Morning Glory.
The andalusian side definitely didn't pass on a calm temperament to her even though her sire is very gentle and can be ridden by children.
Morning Glory is very sweet and trainable, but also reactive and will toss her head at the slightest thing.
She is becoming a good trail horse though.
Here are some pictures.

It's definitely not a cross that I would typically expect to result in a laid back sort of horse. In my experience, both breeds are smart as a whip and very responsive... but this also means that they may be too highly sensitive for the tastes of some riders. Other riders love how quickly they respond to the most light and subtle of cues. I am someone who rather enjoys the 'brio' that the Andalusians tend to have. I've ridden a bit of dressage on a few Andalusians and was very impressed with how they responded to the softest of cues.

As has been stated, there's really no telling exactly what this cross might turn out like... particularly considering the vast amount of variation within the Arabian breed.

I wouldn't purposely get a specific cross unless it was from a breeder who has a very good specific reason for crossing the two and knew what they were doing.

Thanks for the information. Both of these breeds I plan to own one day, but not until I learn more about them.

BTW your girl is beautiful!!
