Breeds of Livestock - Quarab Horses
The United Quarab Registry was developed in 1989 to promote the Quarter Horse-Arabian crossbred horse. The Painted Quarab Index was added in 1991 to include the colorful tobiano and overo patterns of the American Paint Horse.
The Quarab's body type may resemble more the stock-horse type with muscular forearm and gaskin and well-rounded hip, or the Arabian type with long, well-arched neck, long barrel, and level croup. The head usually shows refinement, large eyes, wide forehead, and slight to extreme dish in the face, depending on the ratio of Arabian to Quarter Horse blood. Height ranges from 14 to 16 hands.
Horses with cryptorchid and parrot mouth conditions are not allowed.
The Quarab is suited to many events: roping, reining, dressage, trail riding, driving, endurance, etc.
