[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've been cross breeding since i got on here...ive been trying to get at least 1 star ing every thing when they are born...so i tried a standard breed and apaint...im still waiting...im basically gonna get every breed into one horse....i hope that it will work...will yall pm me with some tips please?
I am also new to crossing. I did used to look down on them, until I bought a Paint/Hano that was a brilliant SJ horse.

Anyway, I fell in love with the Mustang and am currently trying to raise the dressage while keeping Mustang as the main breed. At the moment, I'm still experimenting with different breeds, and will probably cross the mustang with just about all of them, but I do have a Mustang Hunter who should turn out pretty good, once I can get the passes to train him default smiley (lol)


I also have a decent Mustang/Arab who I'm hoping will also turn out alright.


I'm also interested in raising the dressage of the Hanoverian, as I used to breed them quite a lot, but I only need one project at a time.

(Excuse the crappy names, and the affix. I'll be changing it once I get a burst of inspiration default smiley (lol) )

Would anybody like to simplify the point of this for me?
I am quite a new cross breeder. I decided to try appaloosa simply because, no one seems to breed them that competetively like arabs or IH's. Well i have 4 eilte horses already and between me and my breeding partner we have at least 7 elite horses, one already ranked in the top 10 for appaloosa's.

Now, I can't buy passes either so this has really helped to start me off. I have however found that many people don't wish to buy my horses (Or offer ridiculously low prices for them) simply because they are cross bred. I don't see the problem with it personally. It's not like crossbred have a disease or something, so i expect the same prices for my crossbred elites as i would for any purebred elite. It is really driving me nuts....

Also if you are inerested in an elite cross pm me.

I have a few, they are mainly PSH x paint which seem to give the best performance for my PSH's

like this one he is #1 PSH elite


#2 PSH elite

I am interested in finding out what other people have discovered in breeding the partbreds together.

Shocky, I'd try Arab/Hunter crosses. Apparently those do well, I've never raised one though.

You asked for someone to simplify this for you. In a nut shell, when you do careful crossbreeding you can breed horses that excell in the competitions. Cross breeding is also a relaxing way to set reachable goals without having to battle in the GP race with the top breeders. default smiley ;)

i am excited.....
I've been playing with sportponies since last August...it's been going pretty decently. My first one, Three Haunts (Shetland/Arab/Connie), ruled in barrel racing...he has 29 wins for it, and got most of them in a row. Except he failed at everything else. I'm trying to wrap up his BLUP right now.

My second one was Three Twix (Arab/Welsh/TB/Connie), and she's doing decently. She's good at gallop races and cross country, but not much else. Still working on getting her wins, but I haven't played actively since December, so it's at a standstill.

My third one was Three Laughs (Shetland/TB/Connie), but I haven't even gamed her yet. Winter kept coming at inopportune times. Aww, I just went to her page to look up her breeding and her sire died. That's randomly sad.

My ponies have been doing decently with greenstars (1*, 4*, and 5*, respectively), but I'd like to raise that. I think it's going well overall, so far. Now I feel like going back and working my horses.

And it's very interesting to see what you guys are breeding. default smiley :)
lucky the horse
