Gracie would win first if I entered her in a level 1 or 2 dressage competition, right now, without any more training. Her headset is gorgeous and natural, her gaits are completely controlled by the energy in your body, and I know from riding her many times that she's got her half-passes, lead changes, circles, stops, and transitions down pat. She wasn't trained for dressage though, she was trained to be an English Pleasure horse.

Saddlebred/Arab Cross

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my NSH, ASB/Arab crosses. They are some of the most people oriented horses I've ever had. The NSH was originally bred to be an English (Saddleseat) horse, but many of them are now being used in all disciplines.

I have LA Peppermint Patti, Atomic Deluxe X KZ Jubilee, she's 3/4 Saddlebred, 1/4 Arabian and a gorgeous Tobiano Pinto as well. She is NOT a saddleseat horse, nor is it looking like her son by RA Hot Every Night will be a Saddleseat horse. Patti is a Res. Champ. Pinto Congress Mare, her sire is a World Champ Pinto Stallion, RA Hot Every Night is World Champ Pinto and 5 gaited champ.

I used to own TR Supergirl, HF Mister Chips++ (Canadian Champion Park Horse) X Calloways Blue Norther Daughter (one of the top siring ASB Park horses in history) and Gigi never took an English step in her life.

None of these horses is HOT, a NUTCASE or a GAZELLE with an inverted neck. Actually, Gigi has one of the most gorgeous necks I've ever seen and has a super typey (Arabian) head.

Above's a link to a rather poor video of Gigi, she's so lazy I could barely get her to get excited enough to flip her tail up over her back for the video. She's now got a great home in NM and going to be used for foxhunting.

What all 3 horses have in common besides registry is the common desire to be loved, crave attention, love to please and have a wonderful work ethic. Oh yeah, and they're flashy besides.

Do you have a pedigree on him?

LOL, I just found a picture of Gigi that sums up the Saddlebred/Arab cross for me.

Sense of humour!

The first pic shows Gigi stealing my barn helper's gloves. We were on our way to take pics and she thought it would be 'funny' to steal Heidi's gloves. Typical prankster of a horse!

Patti has been known to steal hammers when we're out working on the barn, and to try to 'help' with repairs. Smart smart smart!

Saying they are 'hot', is a major generalization. No, neither breed is considered lazy, but hot isnt nessacarily true. Ive seen spastic stock horses and arabs and asb's the needed a fire under their butts. Its a personality thing, not a breed thing!
