[RC] Which breed is best? - k s swigart

Jackie said:

For various reasons, I am looking into an Andalusian
cross; either an Arab cross or a Tb cross.
However I am interested in getting started in endurance
as well (as well as dressage and driving and hence the
interst in the Andalusian cross)

So, my question is, is this type of cross "okay"...

Either of these crosses would be "okay."  The thing to do is look for an
individual (whatever its breed) that you like to spend time with.

However, as far as I know, none of those breeds (arab, andalusian, or
TB) is what most driving people have on their list as first choice.  Not
saying that they cannot be driven, just that it isn't where most driving
enthusiasts look first.  Arabs and TBs are considered by many drivers to
be too high strung and flighty.

However, both arab crosses and tb crosses make excellent endurance
horses (personally, I like them crossed with each other, but most
drivers wouldn't look for an Anglo-Arab as their first choice either).
