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!!
For you WildJessie : Hispano-Árabe UK Ltd Home page

you'll find all the information you want about this breed here and links to everywhere else that can give you more of an idea about these wonderful horses. I have been involved with Hispano-Arabes for over 30yrs and while they may not be everyones ideal horse (being very smart and having strong personalities) they are to me an exceptional all round horse. As mentioned on my blog the USA has one way or another been breeding these horses for as long as they have in Spain and for the same reason (they are outstanding work horses perfect for stock work on all terrains) and whether inscribed in the Spanish Studbook (a requirement here under EU law for the horse to be defined as Hispano-Arabe) or inscribed in one of the American long established registries for the breed, you will find many responsible breeders over there only to happy to introduce you to these horses. All the best in your quest for the breed of horse that meets your dreams.

Andalusian X Arabian

To the reader that posted about a cross of these two she saw on Craigs list. I personally own both these breeds. I have crossed the Andy with the Arab and got a wonderful boy. He was a little devil though, not in a bad way. Very light on the cues, all you needed was the slightest movment of your pinky and a slight placement of your leg. I had no problems with spookiness. He was a little anxious when training though. I then crossed the same Andy with a Percheron. If you want a smart , solid, calm horse, husband friendly, thats smart and learns easy, this is the one I would recommend. The Andy - Arab cross is not for beginners, but they are wonderful.
