pretty much anything crossed with arab.
-I knew an arabx qh that was an amazing trail and ranch horse, stocky like a qh but with a refined head and more stamina
-arab x appy gelding that has the size, stamina and flair of an arab, with a calmer disposition and cool color
-arab x paint, athletic and gorgeous.
-arab cross percheron. I've heard people say they've seen bad examples of this cross, but the one I knew was stunning, tall, with the bone and level headedness of a percheron, but a lighter body, endurance and movement from the arab. She easily could have been a dressage or eventing horse.
-I have always loved anglo arabs, and my mare is in foal for one next spring, which I'm excited about.
I also love thoroughbred crosses, it tends to lighten other breeds up and increase athleticism and drive.
draft crosses, done right, can also be amazing, but I have seen it go horribly wrong too.
The worst crosses... saw a qh mustang cross that was the ugliest horse on 4 legs. Calf kneed, sickle hocked, long backed, excessively narrow, with a long ewe neck and large coarse hammer head.
I've seen some horrifying Friesian crosses, and draft crosses. Why breed a long backed Suffolk punch to a long backed, tiny headed qh? The result was a pin headed, wide bus with 4 legs.
