[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.

Almost BLUPped Angelic Pretty! Just waiting for her to get the 20 wins.


What should I breed her with next? Maybe something with a good gallop & trot?

@cheer4always that's a really neat horse! I Still don't know what Angel will be good in, looks like it'll be dressage though default smiley :)

I have a lusitano x peruvian paso mare. Does anyone think that if I crossed with maybe a thoroughbred that it would have really good dressage, trot, and gallop to win rosettes (if it has a high enough GP?

Dressage needs to be at least 4000 to even see rosette comps, tb and Paso have decent dressage skills but nothing on the lusitano, it might work with tears (depending on gp of course) but if you want to do dressage you might want to cross back to a lusitano. The lusitano half kills speed so trot/gallop comps wouldn't be a great choice. How about western competitions? Reining, trail, or western pleasure might be a good fit depending on skills/gp. Maybe a gypsy cross with a western focus?

Huh, I never though of that. I even have a lusi x gypsy cross foal already. I'm not as experienced with western disciplines but I'll sure give it a go. Thanks

Quite surprised with my newbie in which I bred just as an experiment...

Capsicum 50.3% Arab 49.7% Selle

Surprised because... this Arab just won a show jumping rosette! default smiley xd I should've expected it by bumping up the jumping skill with the Selle, but I thought it's 'background' skills as it were would be too low for this. Apparently not default smiley (lol)

I absolutely love her! Personally I would try to cross her with a reining breed or gallop breeds- you could end up with a great cross! (I'm also working with a lot of reining horses atm so I'm a little biased lol)

Oh, thank you Bandito15! That's awesome! I've hardly tried any Western competition horses. I'll definitely try doing that! default smiley :d

If anyone is looking to try a cam cross, let me know! I've got a pair of fully blupped ones you can use if you'd like.

Speaking of reining crosses, I'm very happy with my Friesian/TB! Almost fully trained!

Does anyone think a lusi x friesian would be successful in dressage comps?

@Bandito not sure yet. I was gonna say another 50/50 cross focused on show jumping. Since Cheng Jun is a male, and Morgan is his 2nd listed breed, the foal should also be a Morgan, right? default smiley :)
