^^lol i dont know any dull warmbloods !!!

i personally know a few arab/hanoverians and im really not a fan. none of them have great conformation and their body parts are a bit awkward. i dont think it works out well to breed horses of two totally different breeds.

I have seen a few of these crosses at Arabian Sport Horse Nationals. They were lovely and very competitive in halter, dressage, and hunter classes.

I just Wiki, hat warm and cold blood.

Wouldnt a National Show horse, which is an Arabian, American saddlebred cross be right up the OP's alley ? Just dont buy the one I am saving for.

An Arabian/Warmblood cross is one of the nicest crosses out there. I know someone who crossed an Arabian mare with a Hanoverian, really nice result. They make excellant dressage horses.

If it is a dressage type horse you want, I wouldn't look for a Saddlebred cross, they are more upright and have more of the up and down action, rather than the long extensions that are required for dressage. I'm not saying that not all Saddlebreds can't do dressage, but they typically do not have the ground-covering reach in their stride, just generally speaking.

That cross sounds nice too. I would use him/her mainly for jumping. I have a Quarter Pony, but I outgrew her and this is the first and last season I can jump in shows. I am doing 2 foot right now because we don't fit anymore! It makes me cry!

I have personally bred Arab X Trakehner two times. The nicerst filly was by an approved Trakehner stallion, and out of an ATA PSB approved Arabian mare. That particular mare had had a couple of very nice Trakehner/Arab foals. I can dig up photos if anyone is interested. She sold before she was even weaned, and for very good money. I think when it is done right, it's a fabulous cross, and that particular filly was eligible for inspection into the OSB, due to her dams' previous PSB approval.

The other filly, out of a VERY nice Trakehner mare and by an Arabian stallion is also very nice, but she was more "arab-y" than the other. A bit too refined for my tastes. She was eligible for insp[ection into the PSB, due to her sires' approval status (unapproved Arabian stallion).

Arabians and TBs were used after WW2 to replenish and improve the warmblood breeds of Europe.
so the cross is a logical and sought after one.

For example, if you have a OSB approved "purebred" Trakehner mare whose dam was a Preliminary Stud Book (PSB) approved thoroughbred, you cannot breed the OSB approved mare to an OSB approved thoroughbred or arabian stallion and have that resulting foal be eligible for OSB approval. The stallion cannot have a TB or Arabian parent.

Clear as mud?
No I get it :) My favourite stallion (recently deceased) was registered Trakehner (purebred) and Arabian Warmblood, and his dam was a registered Anglo Arab (and Anglos can ONLY have Arab/TB blood). I'm pretty sure there IS a minimum amount of Trake blood they have to have to be considered purebred, but it's less than 50% or this stallion wouldn't have been registered as a purebred.
