[Info] Cross breeders

Finally a post just for us cross breeders. The purpose of this topic is for cross breeders to have a place to discuss their crossbreeding programs and to share crossbreeding secrets and advice with others who may be interested in giving crossbreeding a try. Feel free to talk about your crossbreeding programs and your achievements and failures in crossbreeding.
Please remember to follow the rules of the forum and be informative and helpful. default smiley :-))


Reminder to all.

Please do not advertise sales or items wanted in this topic. I can turn a blind eye to the covers being offered (as long as they are not blatant advertisements) because we are, after all, trying to help each other progress and there is no filter on public covers for searching for crosses, but items sales and items wanted do not belong in any of the public forums and we have a sales forum for horse sales so please, lets keep our topic clean of the ads.

Thanks everyone


There are reasons for rules and everyone is expected to follow them. There will be no posting of advertisements in this topic and everyone is expected to be respectful. Any disrespect towards fellow players or moderators will not be tolerated. Anyone posting advertisements will receive a forum ban without prior warning. If breaking of rules continues to take place in this topic I will delete it.

Thank you

If anyone has personal issues with another player, or needs something back from another player(items/passes), other than covers/fills-please take it to private pms...anymore posting here will mean an instant forum ban without a warning.

A reminder that this is not the place for trading/buying/selling BMI, horses or advertising or asking for someone to train your horse.
If any of these things occur, you will be forum banned without prior warning.

i and going to breed my mare again...
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 23:44:49
I'm not new to the game, if you add the days of my previous account you have 636 days TOTAL on howrse.. so I know what I am doing.

I have started with a Connie, last time I didn't. I started with a Welsh, but now I want to do Connies... I'm trying to focus on having a Connie cross with high jumping, while maintaining my stamina and dressage for a ultimate cross country pony.. what should I cross??
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 23:46:11
Also I understand if I have to do any tweaking, and cross connies with more than one breed. Like I was wondering if I could do any connie crosses also to have high stamina and high trot.. if you could help me with that one too. Thanks. default smiley :)
Abbsolute, if you want to maintain stamina and dressage then your best bet to cross them with may be arabian. Hunter or morgan would be best for dressage but the stamina wouldn't be as good.

Arabian? Okay... I'll try that, and I was thinking maybe trying connie/hunter and then add a hanoverian also? But I know that hanoverians are horrible at dressage and have nothing to do with stamina, so probably not unless I did this:

hanoverian/arabian then breed the hano/arab with a connie/hunter??? default smiley *-)
By Retired breeder, 4th April 2010 23:56:44
Like Dr Zig said, I would suggest a arabian. Hunters are good in dressage and stamina, but they aren't in jumping - their other skill is galloping...
By Retired breeder, 5th April 2010 00:01:39
That might work... (the last one you said, with breeding crosses to making crosses) but I'm not sure... I admit I'm not *that* experienced with breeding crosses. Maybe someone else can help a little more than I can. (Like Dr Zig) Sorry. default smiley :)
