About Anglo-Arabian HorsesAbout Anglo-Arabian Horses

Anglo-Arabian Aiglonne won Olympic Gold in three day eventing in 1948


Anglo-Arabian, or Anglo-Arab, horses ara a crossbred betweenrnThoroughbred (thus, the prefix "Anglo") and Arabian horses. The crossrncan be made between a Thoroughbred stallion and an Arabian mare, or vice versa.rnIt can also be a cross between either an Anglo-Arabian and a Thoroughbred or, alternatively,rnan Anglo-Arabian and an Arabian. Another permitted cross is between two Anglo-Arabians.rnNo matter the cross, a horse must have a minimum 12.5% of Arabian blood to be consideredrnan Anglo-Arabian.

rnrnrnrnFrance is one of the largest producers of Anglo-Arabian horses.rnFrench Anglo-Arabian horses can trace their liniage back to two stallions: the Arabianrnstud Massoud and Aslam, a Turkish horse, probably of the now-extinct Turkoman breed.rnThese Syrian imports were then crossed with a trio of Thoroughbreds, specifically,rnthe Comus Mare, the Selim Mare, and Daer. Some years later, three of their daughtersrn— Clovis, Danae, and Delphine — formed the foundation of the French Anglo-Arabianrnbreeding program.

rnrnrnrnAnglo-Arabian horses have used for military purposes. Butrnthese days they are mainly used as a general riding or sport horse. They doe wellrnin eventing, due to its stamina, speed, and jumping ability. In the United States,rnthe Anglo-Arabian is considered a "part-bred" Arabian and, consequently,rnis registered within a separate section of the Arabian Horse Association.

rnrnrnrnAs a result of different crosses that can produce an Anglo-Arabianrnhorse, their size and appearance can vary alot. However, on average, an Anglo-Arabianrnis a bit taller than the average Arabian horse (Anglo-Arabians average 15.2–16.3  hands). The largest horses are usually producedrnby breeding a Thoroughbred mare to an Arabian stallion. The best examples of thisrnbreed inherit the refinement, good bone, and endurance of Arabian horses, as wellrnas the speed and scope of a Thoroughbred.
