My transition from ponies to a "big horse" was with a quarab. She was allllllll Arab upstairs, smart, but very spooky and could be explosive. Never a bucker, but she would bolt. She was 6, I was 12 Waaaaaaaaaaaay too much horse for me. But, she taught me, and I am lucky to have her in my past. I miss her terribly, my mom sold her when I went to the service, no clue what happened to her. She was dapple, and got flea bites as she got a little older. Amazing mare. And she loved small kids, I could put my little brothers on her (toddlers at the time) and she would become a babysitter, not moving a muscle (sometimes I wondered if she wasn't faking her spooky shenanigans). And she was fun..always ready to get up and GO! Wish I knew what became of her.

My friend also has a Quarab, though honestly he looks more like an Ango Arab some times. He's got a tall, long build with a nice amount of muscle, not much height to his tail but a nicely refined head. Very handsome horse.

I had a Quarab mare and I loved her. She had great conformation, beauty(gorgeous golden palomino), speed, stamina, and an attitude.

She was a cute little jumper, but she loved barrels(hence why I sold her).

My gelding is an Appaloosa, but 3 of his grandparents were pure Arabian, and the 4th was an Appaloosa that was mostly Quarter Horse. Don't know if it is the gelding in him, or the Quarter Horse background taking the edge off the Arabian, but his behavior is that of a level headed Arabian with acceleration closer to a Quarter Horse.

My mare is my favorite, but Trooper is the better horse. Just don't tell Mia. You can see his background just by looking at him...

She also had the intelligence of the Arabs and the level-headedness of a Quarter Horse. What do you think of this combo?
I have a quarab and I just love him. His head and neck is arab as awell as his mind (stubborn brat lol) but his torso and butt are all quarter. He's the sweetest boy once he gets his wiggles out lol and I wouldnt have him any other way.
