Opinions on Arabian Quarter horse mix

I own a beautiful 2 year old, bay Arabian quarter horse mix. She was given to me for free when she was almost 2. Just wanted to see what everyone thought of her. I also put a picture of one of the most amazing days I ever had with her when she trusted me enough to ley me lay her all the way down and she started to fall asleep.DSC_7484.jpg

It looks like you have the gentling part down. I think most people here would suggest that you limit the actual time you train mounted until she grows up. Most horses bones are not set until they are at least 4yo, and some not until they are 6yo, and many trainers do not train hard until then. If your young horse had an injury while training and while you were riding and you damaged her leg or legs you wouldn't forgive yourself.
Also, are you SURE she is only a 2yo? Have you checked her teeth? She looks older to me.

When I got her the we had a vet come look at her and he said she was a little younger than two. She is two and a half now. He also checked her teeth. I also got the ok from the vet to start riding her. I have a lot of professionals who have broken in their horses helping me. I'm only doing light riding on her.

Your mare looks precious ;D

I have seen a few quarter/arab crosses gone wrong. Had the misfortune of informing an owner that they weren't compatible with their excitable cross after they'd thoroughly fallen in love with him.. Yours however is pretty and seems extremely sane :)

Nice filly. Quarabs are nice horses. Even with the vet's ok I'd limit your riding time. It is standard in the horse industry to start horses as 2 year olds, but they are far from mature at that age. Their growth plates don't completely fuse until between 4-6 years. Do your horse a favor and be patient.

I like QhxArabs. They can of course vary a lot in type, but the nice ones are quite nice. They can be smart and handy.
