Morabs :)

I have a 6 year old Morab mare. She has the stamina and brains of a Morgan but the ditsyness and attitude of an Arabian. I've been doing research on the breed and most of them are 'nice family pets'. But my Genevieve can be a handful. Are some of them known to be hot blooded?

Thanks, Natali! <3

Agreed! There are no Morgan breeders in Ireland, and only a handful in the UK! Very interested in where you found one, or if she was imported!

In general, the Morab could have any sort of temperament, lol. Some Morgans are very hot, some Arabs are very hot.. some Morgans are very calm, some Arabs are very calm. So you'd have the whole range of temperaments in that cross.

My mother's childhood horse is a morab mare(named "Phantasia"). Iv'e been told countless stories about this horse and she has held the "craziest horse of the county" title by the family and local trainers and farriers. The horse is still alive today(34 years old to be exact) and my mom says she is still like the "hellian" she was when she was young, but don't let what I told you of this horse get you worried of yours. "Phantasia" is one of the most loving and freindly horses I know and I trust her and feel safe on her, the things about her that makes her be considered "crazy" is that she loves going fast, she has a very strong personality, &she is fearless. Another thing about "Phantasia" is that she is extremely intelligent and seems to understand you. On days when i'm not feeling the best she isn't naughty and on days when i'm ready for an exciting challenge she always pleases me. I know no other Morab or horse is like her, but if yours is similar get ready for the ultimate life long companion who is full of fun and suprises. Long live Morabs!!! And goodluck:)

I am facinated by the idea of a Morab being in Ireland. Especially one being a rescue, as it costs a lot to export horses from North America to anywhere overseas.
Any breed can have some "hot blooded" horses. A lot depends on feed, handling and individual temperament.

One of our friends had a Morab. He was a great little horse, lots of energy and very smart. He would do anything for her.

How do you know she didn't get her dittzyness from her Morgan side? And her stamina and brains from her Arabian side?

My first and second horses were Arabians. They took good care of me. I rode them everywhere. Mostly by myself. I am tired of hearing all about "dittzy Arabians." I find the people that describe them that way are usually intimidated by their own horses, so they have to put down yours.

I used to have the only two Arabians at the place I boarded. I got tired of the people who were afraid to ride alone bashing my Arabians when I rode them daily by myself, out on the trail and through city traffic. They couldn't have been that crazy and ditzy could they? I am still alive to tell. :)

My riding buddy has an Arab who is the most laid back , sensible and personable little horse I have EVER met. He is almost never phased by anything, and not becuase he is sleep walking. He just is so smart he thinks first, instead of reacts first. And he has terminal cuteness, too.

My arab was bombproof and a total angel, extremely intellegent, could be ridden by a complete novice and not in the slightest bit ditzy

I agree, we have six arabians and arabian crosses. They are spectacular horses, yes sometimes they like to be spunky, but they aren't trying to be bad, theyr'e just showing how happy they are and how good they feel and there's nothing wrong with that and I don't know any horse, arabian or not, who doesn't express themself every once-in-awhile. Every time we go on public trailrides people bash our arabians and tell us that, "They aren't suited to ride on the trails next to the Quarter horses." Now i'm not bashing Quarter horses at all, but I think their riders are jealous because our little arabians can do things that their horses can't or won't do. Our horses are always the first in line to every ride, ready for adventure, crossing whatever lay before them without hesitation and by the end of a 30 mile ride they aren't the least bit tired, infact they seem refreshed, unlike some of the others who are basically dragging themselves. Arabians are amazing horses, I think everyone should have the experience of working with one.
