Show me your quarter horse crosses or share your thoughts!
I am wanting to eventually breed my AQHA mare again, but I am looking for a more interesting horse then getting another quarter horse or paint (even though Rem is my darling)
Maybe a Cross with a saddlebred? Akhal Teke?
Show me your crosses, or favorite/dream quarter horse crosses.

I do see a lot of QH x Arabs around?

But i am a big believer in keeping things pure LOL

I'm all about a pure QH but my mare is an QH/TB appendix and she's awesome..
She is reining and running bloodlines...I do think that I would probably own another QH TB appendix..even though I am all about a QH.. So this is my Nikki..

WOW nice horse
she looks really intense in that first picture XD

Why Saddlebred or Akhal Teke? They don't really seem very complimentary...

I quite like appendixes, and I've seen some arabxqh I didn't mind. My guy is a full QH though.

Above is Guinness-my QH/TWH cross (a PMU rescue) who is wonderful, despite my initial hesitation in buying a walker cross......:wink:

Below are both my guys-Frankie is a CLyde/QH/TB cross. Also, lovely.

I love QH's, and did also love my registered ones. I just don;t need a "pure" one for my purposes, and totally love my crosses!

Thank you! She is a very good girl who loves her job.

This is Sophie. She's a grade QH cross. I actually have not dealt with her much. I know that as long as she has a butt in front of her face she's fine to ride. But that is more of a training issue. Since she's my Aunt's horse and I helped her buy her (but at my place and my aunt has literally been out twice this month) I call them all my horses. Sophie was found on a highway as a two year old wrapped in barbed wire. So she's also a survivor.

This is a Quarab owned by a friend of mine. He's 26 this year. He was 22 in this picture. He definitely got the best of both breeds: He has a thick, stocky body with a dainty little head and carries himself like an Arabian. If you let him, he'll go from a standstill to top speed, but he has the endurance to stay at top speed for quite a while.

My mare is QH/Paint. Not exactly exciting. Most people assume she's a QH until I say she's APHA. She has a decent sized spot on her right side by her elbow and another small spot on her neck, so I assume she got Frame from her dam. Also, her eye looks really wonky in this picture because I used Picnik's red eye feature as her eye was just a white spot from my flash and looked really odd. But her eyes are not half blue. They are brown.
