    Default anyone have an anglo-arab?

    Does anyone here have an anglo arab? If so, could you post pics? No facebook pics please as i don't have an account. Also, what sort of abilities does the horse have? I am asking because my horse is an anglo arab and has a LOT of talent for his size. He's only 15.1 but could jump the moon. I know a lot of people put anglo arab's down because of the two breeds that make them up (arab and TB) but my guy is surprisingly handsome! Sorry, I don't have pics.

    Ive got one in my broodmare band... one of the smartest horses I have ever known.. too smart, actually. A 'people-first' horse. Her filly by a Trakehner stallion is extremely athletic and intelligent.. cant wait to get her started as I think she could do just about anything that was asked of her. Photos are on my site, sorry, cant post them here.

    I have one, but have never called him an anglo Arab...just always a tb/Arab. He's a super cute guy....huge personality. Never calmed down in the hunter ring quite enough for me though. But now he is my semi retired best friend. I trust him and we have a super bond. I've never had an understanding with a horse like this before. Im on my phone, but I'll try to add pictures soon!

    Mine has a bit of Paint in the mix as well. Looks Thoroughbred-y until he gets galloping/jumping and starts to flag the tail. :-p 15.1 hands and maybe a bit, and he is a narrow little guy, but moves/feels like a bigger horse. (I realize that everyone says this. About him, it is true.)

    Very, very, very smart and nosy. Supervises everyone and everything around him. Alarmingly good at manipulating anything he can get his lips on. Has a high opinion of himself, but luckily, so do I, and he has a super work ethic, so it works out. Was a highly reactive (and highly athletic) spook in his younger/greener days and that's definitely still in there, but mileage/training/rider confidence worked wonders and he now mostly uses his powers for good instead of evil -- routinely hacks out bareback on the buckle, pinch-hits occasionally as a lesson horse for a good kid, etc.

    Currently eventing at Training and is quite competitive on a day when yours truly has her act together. We are thinking he'll go Prelim but top out there (which is fine with me). Really seems to enjoy problem-solving on XC, in particular.

    I loff him. He would not be everyone's cup of tea, but has a pretty good fan club, and I've never heard anyone say an unkind word about the cross. (Maybe they're just polite enough to wait until I'm out of earshot?)

    Oh I rode a lovely one for quite awhile when I was a teenager. He was stunning and had done the rated circuit, but started stopping at fences regularly. So he was relegated to a quieter life with a friend of mine. She never rode him much, which means I got to ride him a lot.

    He never lost the stop and a lot of people couldn't jump him. He'd stop at every damn fence. In fact, his barn name was Bam Bam. But he never once stopped for me. I'm not sure why he and I got along, but we did, and I never had a problem with him. I think I was just young and dumb, and stayed out of his way and let him do his job without telling him how to do it.

    He was a big chestnut, lovely mover. More TB in type aside from the dishy face. Ah I adored that horse. He's one of the few that I think about and get a little teary over!

    Ok enough reminiscing, sorry about that! But I think AngloArabs are really cool horses, though they are probably not for everyone. Smart, sensitive, and high energy.

    I have one in my barn now and have had others in the paST. All were great movers, and good jumpers, the whole package! Athletic and smart . They won in hand, under saddle and over fences. Probably would do well in open shows but we stick mostly to Breed shows and local hunter shows where they do well. I have friends that show their Anglos at open shows and win a lot. check out the North American Anglo Arabian Horse Association for photos. I can't post on here.

    I have a quarter horse/arab. He was an "accident" that I inherited. The funny thing about him, he actually won 4th place at Devon out of 32. =)

    Sounds like you're describing my horse to a T!! He has HUGE movement. I am a small rider but wanted a big horse (16.0h or taller) when I went horse shopping. Of course, I am a sucker for big smooth movement as well. My guy is small but has bigggg movement. Also, he was a 3 day event horse before I bought him. Now he's my hunter. He's got endless energy but never out of control and will sleep ANYWHERE.

    I always wanted one. Never came across one; they're pretty scarce in this country, although much more plentiful in England, which has been doing horses for quite a while, tend to use them more than we do, and generally have pretty good judgement, horse-wise.

    My AA is a 12 year old that I bought at 7...unbroken. She is a 16.2 +/- gray whose mother was a 17 HH racing Thoroughbred. Don't really know much about her sire. She had grown up on a farm with 24/7 turnout in a mixed band of geldings and mares with stallions on the property. She absolutely knew she was a horse!

    I brought her to a boarding facility with an indoor where she was put under saddle, taught lunging and introduced to jumping, all of which she did well. Still, I was reluctant to trail ride her, either in a group or alone. Imagine my surprise when, after a move to a rural property with miles of out-the-back door-trails, she has turned into an awesome leader on trail as well as a confident solo horse! We are going to start training for endurance once the weather lets up a bit.

    Compared to my half draft mare, she is a firecracker in the best possible way. Fortunately for me, the firecracker has a brain and uses it! Gotta love that mix...

    I leased an Anglo-Arab two summer ago. He turned out to be my true heart horse. He and I really clicked. Sadly, the lease did not end well on the human side. He's up for sale now, and it kills me that I can't afford the purchase price.

    I don't think I will ever be able to replace that "void" that he left.

    He sure had a lot of try in him too. I think I jumped 2'6'' on him in the end. I was super nervous going that high, but he took care of everything. I swear he would even shift his weight to make sure I stayed balance.

    He was also a super dressage horse. He looked a lot more thoroughbred than arab even though he was half and half. Sigh, I miss him.
