Re: [RC] [RC] Arab/Hackney cross - Maryanne Gabbani

You all are describing a lot of the baladi Arabs in Egypt. When the Brits came here in the late 1800's most of the horses were Arabs, some of the the short southern Arabs brought back from wars in the Arabian peninsula and others the taller Arabs from northern Syria and southern Turkey. But to Brit eyes they were too small so they brought in some draft and heavier horses to "improve" the breed. Now you can see some really stunning hefty Arab stallions hauling long wagons filled with rebar in the older parts of town. Some of the cart horses here are in rough shape, but others are to die for.  Nice bone and great stamina.

Another cross that we have just tried that has turned out to be a lot of fun and excellent in endurance is a half Arabian, half Dutch Harness Horse.  Some crosses are too heavy, but a lighter cross has huge bone and very athletic and makes an excellent HW horse.
