qh arab cross??

what's your guys view on qh arab cross? i love arabs and everything about them. my mare (who just passed away) was a reg arab and she was great so now i'm sold on them. at the moment i'm looking at getting either a qh arab cross who is two or a reg arab who is at least one. i'm just kinda lost cause i fell in love with the qh arab but i like having a pureblood arab. just curious about your views :)

This is my absolutely FAVORITE cross of all time.

Sure, they may not be a registered high-dollar arabian, but dang! The best horses I've ever had have been QH/Arab crosses.

My first gaming horse was one herself. Her name was Angel and she was so beautiful. She was big, around 16hh, and stocky enough to get down and slide in the ground and cut out cattle but quick and agile like any other arab. She was stocky but refined in her body type, if that makes sense. Like a lot of the newer arabs look like they'd break if you so much as tapped them wrong on the legs, but Angel looked like a working cowhorse in the ring but could rock any endurance race.

Its a very versatile cross. All the ones I've seen have been used for anything from Dressage to barrels, reining to jumping!

I'm not saying reg. arabs are bad, because I love them to death, but if I had a choice I would pick the Arab/QH cross.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I think they're called "Quarabs" sometimes. :3

But anyway, I think they would be a great horse. Perhaps a really good childrens horse, as most Quater Horses are stocky and I haven't seen all that many tall Arabs. (There is the exception, but alot of Arabs are really fine boned, too.) The probably wouldn't be as hot as an Arab, and have the agility of the Quarter horse.

I suppose with the right parents a Quarab would be practically a perfect mix. (Although I am more of a fan of Appy mixes, but of all more solid colored mixes that would have to be my favorite.)

I myself don't own any crosses, but a friend's daughter has a quarab pony mare that is absolutely darling! She has the bone and muscle structure of a quarter with a babydoll arab head. She got the best of both breeds and she is an amazing hunter/jumper pony!

It depends on the horse but I've seen many who looked like they weren't in the blender long enough, for example-big front end with light back end.
If you like the horse that's all that matters though.

One of my ultimate favorite breeds ;)
