    I would say on the Quarabs, just be careful of the lines the horse has. My friend has a quarab gelding that is from just two random parents (obviously one QH and one arab, but they weren't selected for any particular traits, they were just tossed together in much the same way "designer dogs" are bred) and he is probably one of my least favorite horses in the world. His gaits are extremely rough, his conformation is horrible (even I with my limited conformation experience can see that) and he is one of the hardest to deal with horses I have ever met (could possibly be because his owner has had him since he was 2 and he's now 16 and she lets him get away with murder because "it's cute"). Not saying all are like that, because I've seen some really nice ones, but just beware of the bad ones.

    Awk, thanks, i've been told about Arabs and their reputations, which is why im hesitant to get a horse that's even a cross with arab. But then again my friends got an arab and she's coming along nicely because the rider's dedicated and very talented. I guess if I was to get a quarab i'd get one that I made sure suits me, like any other horse i'd buy. :)

    Cute :) Arabs are beautiful animals, but I love quarter horses for some random reason, so that's probably a good reason to get one :)

    Here is a QH who is also a full registered with APHA.



    One with good size bone and feet. He passes these traits also.


    One with just the right about is bulk that crosses well for an outstanding performance horse. This is what I like to see when I look at a QH.

    Thanks, took a lot of years and hard work to get the horses I have. True what they say about hard work.

    I reckon. It has taken a long time to get my horse where she is. It has been a learning experience for both of us. I like the slide stop photo. I would love to gtet into reining but im a showing/dressage/jumping gal
