I have an 8 yr. old Quarab gelding. I'd say it probably does vary from horse to horse, but in general they're pretty easy to work with.

My guy can be spooky, but I believe any horse that isn't trained to react properly will do the same, and he's getting much better. They have that laid back Quarter Horse vibe, but with a toned down personality of the Arabian. They've also got the Arab smarts, so they train like a breeze. The best part is their willingness to please. Once they know what to do, they're happy to work. They might be gawky looking, but they're pretty athletic.

My favorite part about them is their quirky personality. It may annoy some, but you really have to learn to laugh at them.

it depends on the horse. genetics is dice roll. You can have two horses out out of the same mare and by the same stallion, and have two totally different horses in looks and personalities. Just like people, brothers and sisters are all different ;) .. Thank goodness for genetics are we would all be stamped out of the same mold.. pretty boring..

Qaurabs are one of the best crosses from an arabian.
I own 8 though they are registered as half arabians only and not with the quarab registry.
They are pretty versatile and responsive. truly the best of both breeds from my experience. Shalom

One of our boarders has one. He used to be a barrel racer. He's quite fast and has a slim build. I like the cross. I love Arabians! I'd have more if I could. They're just so versatile.

When I was guiding pack trips into the Colorado wilderness areas, I bought a quarab. She was very sensible and one of the best mountain horses I ever rode.

here we are during hunting season

She was iron tough and never took a lame step.

My friend has a Quarab that I've rode many times. Although he is older, he has never spooked or acted cranky with me. Under saddle he always wants to go go go! Here is a photo of us.

this is my quarter arab .. he is quirky, he is older, he still crow hops, tosses his head around to intimidate the rider .
