We once boarded a horse who was the exact same mix, except the sire was a QH and the Dam was an Arab/Welsh cross. Her name was Tia and she was absolutely adorable and actually quite pretty. Jet black with very fine Arab/welsh features. I wish we still had her.

Personally I think two of the worst crosses is a TWH x Gypsy Vanner and a Paso Fino x QH... The Paso/QH cross had horrible conformation but good disposition. The horse had no idea how to gait or trot... AQHA Girl can attest to that because she knew the horse. The Walker/Vanner is a stud who should have been gelding asap... Worst conformation I have ever seen-which is saying a lot. I just don't see how someone could cross a lanky gaited horse with something beefy and coarse and drafty... Gaited horses and draft type horses/ponies do NOT EVER MIX..... EVER!!!!! They turn out deformedish looking and IMO are only usable for trail riding and possibly driving depending on the build...

Mel!! I miss her, I wonder hows she's doing...

Anything gaited mixed with a non gaited is bound to not go well when the baby comes out.....

when I was working at an equestrian I saw a weird combo
A Thoroughbred/ Saddlebred X Clydesdale those breeds are fine on their own
But that cross was sure weird

I really wish you wouldn't use that expression. There are horses that can walk down a trail - and then there are trail horses - and then there are good trail horses...just as there are horses that can jog around a track, then there are racehorses, then there are good race horses. Proper conformation, temperament, and training, are just as important in making a good trail horse as in any other discipline...IMO moreso...

Wow, why is everyone so down on Friesian crosses? Here is mine, he is absolutely the best horse I have ever known or had, and I've owned and rode horses for over 50 years. The only other horse I've ever had that came close to him was my Arabian/Lippizzan cross.......

What is his other breed in him? He's beautiful!!! It just depends on what other breed a Friesian is mixed with I think. Personally I LOVE Appy and Friesian crosses, as long as they have loud coloring. Most people mix opposite breeds together and get something weird. Like a Paso Fino and Quarter Horse. They can turn out great (my friend has one right now who is pretty) and I've also met one that had horrible conformation and didn't know how to trot or gait. I'm all for refining bigger boned horses down such as mixing Thoroghbred and Percheron to create something that is pretty good at dressage(not always). My PMU mare is Thoroughbred, Percheron, and Quarter Horse. Great for dressage and also sturdy for trail and whatever else I throw at her (I've even placed 2nd twice in reining with her). One great mix is a Gypsy Vanner and Haflinger-but again, they are both draft type horses. Breeding opposites is a risky business. Sometimes you get good ones, other times you get weird ones.
