[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.

Does anyone know of some jumping mixes other than Kwpn x Selle's?


If you want to have them 'targeted' with low jump and high dressage and speed then trotting, galloping or cutting breeds might work?

Does anyone know of any crosses that give the same skill set as a KWPN but with high GP?

I have an 11s Marwari/TB with Marwari listed second. I also have a Marwari stallion (and mare!) with 11s, the mare isn’t BLUPed yet though.

I am wanting to breed a crossie that will win some western rosettes. I am far more familiar with classical crosses, hence my posting here. All the crosses I found are good, but usually one of my picked breeds doesn't have any horses with high enough GP in the sales or covers. I'm really open to any of the comps, I just want to try something new. Any suggestions? Thanks!!

Hi There! I'm interested in starting to cross breed Gypsies+ something else for Cross Country Comps, but I'm not quite sure what other breed to do! If someone/anyone wanted to DM me to help me out that would be great. default smiley (l)default smiley (l)

default smiley :) Number 3 is very promising for Western, you'll have to choose between barreling and reining if you want to target train.

Agree with avanderloop. Also if you do Grand Prix then she'd be a possibility for Reining in that. She looks about level with my tops in that at the moment, though with a slightly different balance. That might put her in the 300s/400s. I.e. not winning but I'm currently chasing a top 100 in the weekly overall list with that sort of level.

Is that Star? Yes, I went and looked... I would leave off breeding her and finish her training and get her 20 wins first, that way she'll pass on as many abilities as possible. I think the Gypsy cross you've already done would be a good one for Western. For Classical I'd try a Peruvian Paso, which would bring her speed, dressage and trot up, but hopefully leave stamina, jump, trot and gallop under the speed and dressage. The foal would likely be at a disadvantage in comps for those breed though: it would probably work a bit better with a Connie male and mares of those breeds so you could enter the results in comps for Connies.

Been a while since I last did a cross and actually blupped/trained it default smiley (lol). I'm back from my summer hiatus! Lots of new people I see!
Just did this cross last night she's #5 Overall, #2 in trot, #3 in Gallop, and #13 in jumping... for Friesians that is! I have her twin brother, if anyone is interested in him let me know!

It's been a minute since I actually posted a new foal in here. Since shelving some old projects, I've returned my focus to mostly pure Morgans and Morabs. And a looooong time ago I wanted to do two separate lines of Morabs, regular Morabs (morgan x arabian) and Shagya Morabs (morgan x shagya arabian). Well, I'm proud to introduce this little fella by Funk Master out of Techno DJ.

*side note: I've actually changed my affixes as well. Kind of like a fresh start with the refocusing. So my Drop Dead Diva morabs are now known as Southern Morabs.

Random question, but if you are planning on breeding and target training a foal, would you want to BLUP the parents? I'm a little confuseddefault smiley (l)

I always blup the parents, simply so that the foal comes out with a better GP and IBS, if you are just experimenting and trying to figure out what crosses have what skill sets and don't care if it's skills are great then I suppose you wouldn't necessarily need to.

This little girl is my Arab/TB cross. Her parents were not fully BLUPed. Can't decide Classical or Western, but her Gallop is outrageously high.

I think that's pretty ideal for either cutting or barrels.

A second cross with roughly the same GP but from fully BLUPed parents with tears... I’m leaning Classical (for Dressage and Gallop comps) but I’d like another opinion. I’d send a link but I’m on mobile so I can’t. His name is Nukhri and he’s in my Other Horses farm.

Check out my targeted barrel crossie! This was my first experiment with targeted crosses. Any breeds I could use to raise the gallop high enough for rosette wins?

I'm interested in breeding my cross country Gypsy Vanners with another horse to produce a foal that would do well cross country as well. Any ideas on what would be a good breed to cross with?

Loosed


Loosed has a little Gypsy with the Lusitano/Selle helping make for some Cross Country wins.

Sorry the link on my previous didn't work! I thought I put in the right part of the URL. If you want to see Loosed, she's in the Of the Crossed Hearts farm. 5% GV and the rest being Selle/Lusi
