Quarab - horses for sale
The Quarab is an American breed created by crossing Arabian horses with stock horses such as American Quarter Horses. Paint Horses have also contributed to this attractive and hard-working breed, which combines the skill and focus of a stock horse with the endurance and appearance of the Arabian horse. In fact, over the years, three distinct types have developed, which means that equestrians who buy a Quarab can choose between a horse that is more of a stock type, or one with more Arabian qualities. Breeders who sell a Quarab are often members of the Italian Quarab Horse Association since the closure of the International Quarab organisation. The breed is not only popular in the USA but also in Europe, with many enthusiasts in the Netherlands, Germany and Italy.

Use and characteristics of the Quarab
Although breeders have been producing crosses of Arabian and stock horses for many years, the Quarab is the outcome of a systematic approach based on breed ratios. Quarabs are between 14 hands (56 inches/142 cm) and 16 hands (64 inches/163 cm) high. This height range offers plenty of choice for those considering whether to buy a Quarab as a family horse. The three types of Quarab are: the Straight Quarab, also known as the Foundation Quarab. The ratio here is 50% Arabian and 50% stock horse (Quarter Horse and/or Paint Horse). This type represents the breed standard in the registry for breeders who sell a Quarab. The second type, the Stock Quarab, favours the stock horse breeds, with their rounder, more muscular croups and highly muscled legs and shoulders. Finally, Pleasure Quarabs are more Arabian in appearance, with longer necks and body, and musculature that is less pronounced. They excel at endurance. Percentages of up to 1/8 to 7/8 of either breed type are permitted. Every colour of coat is accepted apart from leopard complex spotting.
