[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.

That's a good goal! It is definitely a struggle to get to that point.

I assume you meant dabbling, not dabbing, lol.
They are XC horses (Lusitano is the main breed and they do well in breed-specific) obviously, Dressage is their best skill. Mine are still in training, you’re welcome to take a look default smiley :)

Nukhri is a 14500+ skill Marwari/TB who does amazing in medium level dressage (he’s only 31 with 320 wins, almost 200 of which are Dressage)

They look rather tough to get wins with. I may or may not try them. I am mostly looking at horses that can have low gp and still win or do decent.

I bred the original cross with unBLUPed horses, which is why they’re not doing so great in comps... they’d probably make good target Reiners

Looks like a great cross! If only your foal has higher GP...

I don't really bother with GP. Especially when it comes to Morgans. They're a less popular breed and thus have a lower GP that's open to the public.

I need some help here.

I need a Fri dominant cross with the following requirements

-High GP
-Stamina is lowest skill
-Dressage and Jumping are highest


Any ideas? I used to use Fri x KWPN but KWPN is so low on GP offering right now its impossible.

Got my newest cross mostly done…Jedidiah is 3 wins away from all 20. I was going through my horses, putting them in the Grand Prix when i came across an older cross of mine that is the same as Jedidiah (Lusitano/Gypsy Vanner) and found that he had won a lot of Western Pleasure comps. Wanted to update the GP and i've blupped my first 15k skilled cross!!

He looks great! Also, the top Morgan team offers cross-breeding. You just have to get in touch with the admin or whoever is in charge and tell them you would like a cross-bred covering. They've helped me out before and i go to them for any Morgan coverings i want.

Since I breed Morgans myself, I breed with my own stock to try to save money. But that's always good to know default smiley :)

What comps do Morgans do? Would they make good crosses with Marwaris or TBs?

Is there anyone out there with similar crosbreeding programs?

Pony breed: Shetland crossed with Lusitano, Gypsy Vanner, Selle Francais

Riding horse: Arabian crossed with Irish Hunter, Lipizzan, Lusitano, and Thoroughbred

I have found that these crosses tend to due well in Cross-country and Jumping competitions, but always looking for fresh bloodlines to infuse into the program. I'm also open to others thoughts on the program with the possibility of tweaking it to make it better.

Oof.
Me like. Isis was kind enough to give me five so I've chosen to keep this one.
Can't hope to compete with the teams but I'm interested to see her results.

So I've been breeding gypsians (friesian and vanner) and their stamina is decent. When I choose western, they do well in Western Pleasure, but what would I show them as in Classical? My laptop died and is currently charging so I am unable to post a link. Thank you in advance for any and all help.
