I was actually looking into getting a QHxArabian.
Anyone know about them?
I had a QH/Arab, she belongs to my sister now. Like any horse, you can't say "That's a QH/Arab so it will definitely be such and such, or definitely NOT be such and such".
My mare was pissy with a bad attitude a lot of the time, had a problem with rearing for a while, HATED small trailers, liked to kick other horses so I had to keep a red ribbon in her tail. I don't think that's very characteristic of either breed... it was just her personality. She is also fairly athletic (not not as athletic as my Arab/Draft). She is fast and a good jumper. We kicked butt in gymkhana but only because she was fast on the straight - her turns weren't fantastic. She was a grouchy mare who got worse when she was in heat. We worked her on cattle and she did okay but, again, my draft mix was actually better. To be honest the only areas where I think the Arab/QH beat the Arab/Draft was in flat out speed and in jumping. I prefer the draft cross in everything else. But, I've known some very unathletic, spooky, hotheaded drafts too. It really depends on the individual horse.
But, like I said, that was just HER personality. All QH/Arabs are not going to be just like her.
