Quarab?

I've been doing some research on the cross between a quarter horse and an arabian. Does anyone have any experience with a Quarab? I've heard they're pretty hyper and a fun breed to own and ride. Does anyone know what else this breed is like athletic wise? I have a friend who run barrels on a Quarab and it's the perfect little mare.

I think you have *hyper* with any horse. Depends on the horse itself. I'm awaiting a Quarab foal. I have had a buck wild Arabian 18 year old, and have ridden a few 4,7,8 year old arabians and Quarabs and they was all very slow, patient, looking to please horses.

ETA: the ones I've ridden and been around can out last half I've rode with.

I was starting to wonder where you can assume a certain breed is hyper. Do you know anything on the breeds athleticism first hand?

One of my friends has a quarab gelding. He's lazy and fat. He's also very smart and knows how to get out of work very easily.

There are a few on here that can help more. All I do is ride for pleasure. We have had small dirt road races and stuff like that. I think a good inshape horse will top any. But, like I said even on all day and weekend trips the ones I've been around are still wanting to go. So I'm pretty sure one of the right lineage would serve well for any type of job you want it for. But, no expert here.

He's also got a jackhammer trot. I've ridden him once and there was no rhythm to post to.

I've seen some very athletic quarabs, though.

Those jackhammer trots are killers. I've only known one quarab, and I believe she's either 50% arabian or 25% arabian. I'm not to sure.

A lot depends on what the parents were bred for and how well the cross was chosen. A good solid minded Arabian with proper gaits and conformation crossed with a well bred and solid conformation quarter horse will give you an excellent cross. Though you cannot predict if they will inherit more from sire or dam or be somewhere in between, it will be a good cross. My mom bred some beautiful Arabian mares to the same quarter horse stud. She got 2 fillies the first year and 2 colts the second year. Each matured to different heights, builds, and overall appearance. One of the mare's offspring had a very moody, aggressive daughter and a son with a very gentle disposition that grew very tall and was so lazy that nothing bothered him. The other mare's offspring had a short, stocky WP built daughter and a sleeker, high energy English built son. All were well put together with solid conformation, but were suited to different disciplines and rider ability.

Just like any breed or popular cross breeds, they are varied in natural abilities and dispositions. Judge each individually and not lumped together in a mass that does not hold true for each one.
