I own a 1/4 QH 1/4 Peruvian 1nd 1/2 arab cremello gelding.
His mother was 1/2 ARab 1/2 Peruvian palomino his sire was 1/2 Arab 1/2 QH. Funny he looks like a nice foundation QH with a refined head.
He was bred by someone else then given to me after the divorce. Shalom

I wouldn't call it the worst but the most bizarre cross I ever knew was an Australian Stock Horse x TB x Shire. Luckily for the horse, it had the head and brains of an ASH, neck and body of a TB, and slightly sturdier legs, good hooves and temperament from the Shire. Had slight feathering and a bit of fluff under the neck but nothing dramatic. Could have gone wrong though...

Oh wow! What if it had the build of a shire with the tb legs neck head? you'd have another quarter horse halter-bred horse on your hands!

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again

Or...the head and body of a Shire, and temperament and feet of a TB! Stock horses are too awesome, they couldn't contribute anything awful

ETA: Actually, the tail of an ASH - they're pretty miserly in the tailhair department.

I had a neighbour who was very proud to tell me that their Belgian mare was in foal to a mustang stallion. Considering this was Ontario I'm not sure about the stud being a mustang - they're not exactly common in that area, and "purebred" drafts with no papers are common so who knows what the mare really was. I never did see the result as the entire household was arrested for polygamy and child abuse shortly after.

I went to test ride a Fjord x Morgan once. (I lovingly refer to this mix as a Fjorgan). He was short (14hh) but I was hoping he'd have the Fjord stockiness with a little more 'forward' from the Morgan side, but sadly he ended up being narrow and lightly built. He wasn't small enough that I was too heavy for him, but he was small enough that I thought I looked funny on him I think he ended up making a very nice child's mount in the end.

I've got a girl friend breeding Georgian Grandes.......mare is the Saddlebred, sire is the Friesian .....and she has put out some nice crosses......my favorites are the last two she bred in 2011....one was a filly and the other was a colt.

I don't think its a bad cross if done with care.

Here is her website..... Grande Isle Farm

I don't like percheron crosses.

Well, I have an Arab/Welsh cross. She's good for endurance, but forget about it with something else ... she is hot headed AND stubborn. We have her on a strong Magnesium supplement for both her metabolism AND 'freaky factor'. She doesn't look bad, but sometimes you have to think more of the 'attitude' than just the conformity of the animal. My kids cannot ride her, and she has hundreds and hundreds of miles on her. If she can get away with it, she will; and if she can eat it, she will. And forget about the WHOA.

Worst cross I have ever seen was a Haflinger/TB cross. I suppose that cross could be fine, but this one was not. Everything that could go wrong did. I wish I had a picture because even my husband, who is not a horse person, asked "What is wrong with that horse?". You know it's bad when someone that is blissfully horse ignorant even sees something is amiss.

lol sounds like a dog I ran into at the river once. Coming towards me his head was a Saint Bernard as he passed the body was a Irish Setter lol He looked like he was going to tip over onto his nose at any minute. Also saw a add for a Chihuahua crossed with a Saint Barnard . . . almost went to see that one just from the pure curiosity of it, but was too afraid I'd end up coming home with one lol. As to the oddest horse cross . . . Prettiest was a Fresian x Saddlebred. Flashy was a understatement, ugliest was probably a Clydesdale crossed with I'm not sure what. Had a huge head and a knobby body. Just really awkward looking just standing.
