All modern light horse breeds carry the blood of the arabian. IMO they are the only breed that is known to successfully cross on most others.
They are also the purest breed and a different subtype wth less vertabraes, tail bones aned ribs than other breeds. Some mustangs aslo have this trait. Especally thse of almost pure spainich blood. Infact if you ask me I think the only 2 crosses acceptable for a mustang are the Arab and maybe the Andulusaion.
I did see an Andulsion Kiger cross. Looked like an Andulsion dun. I did breed my Arab stallion ot a mustang mare this year. They are hoping for an endurance prospect. Shalom

That's just a legend. And not all Arabs are flightly, if they are trained right. My Arab doesn't mind wind at all.

Haha, mine was a joke. :P I had to find some way to compare the mist and dust to the horse. They are not my cup of tea, which is why I prefer the incredibly diluted version. Thanks to them, we have TBs. Thanks to TBs we have my beloved ASBs.

Andalusian x kiger, lusitano x kiger, andalusian x arabian, lusitano x arabian, quarter horse x kiger, these are becomming increasingly more common and have their own registries (like the hispano arabe). And usually they work, because they all source from original Iberian blood (except the qh). Most mustangs are not iberian, and are qh and paint based blood lines. They cross well sometimes with arabian based breeds because qh's have arabian throw back but that is about it.

Fresians are not Iberian based, and way to square, which is why it bugs the crap out of me when people call Fresians "baroque". Arabians are baroque, Andalusians, Lusitanos, Iberians are baroque. Percherons are baroque. Fresians are just furry cart horses are rarely cross well outside.

Also, even if many modern breeds can claim throwback to Arabian blood, which was used to refine many breeds, it is so far back in most breeds that it doesn't always cross back very well. Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses have a ton of Arabian refining in them, which is usually why between the three they cross well. Heck, QHs can still claim AQHA registration pure bred even if they are Thoroughbred two generations back. They are very close yet genetically. Same goes for NSHs. Saddlebred (Thorougbred), Arabian, and often QH paint. Would probably cross incredibly well with a baroque horse.

Check out rancho bayo kigers. They cross lusitano and kigers as well as quarter horse and kigers. Im not a huge fan of them but it is interesting to follow their blog on their foals.

I once knew someone who crossed a Percheron with a Morgan. The horse was so smooth to ride it felt like you were gliding and had a great personality, but his looks were quite unfortunate.
