The Anglo-Arab is an offshoot of the Arabian and its derivative, the Thoroughbred. It is a horse that should combine the best of both. Such a cross might be expected to inherit some of the Arabian’s qualities of soundness and stamina while incorporating the speed and scope of the Thoroughbred, without its sometimes excitable temperament..
The breed may be said to have originated in Britain and to have been perfected in France, where Anglo-Arabs have been bred systematically at the great studs of Pau, Pompadour, Tarbes and Gelos for over 150 years. (info from Eyewitness Handbook)

    Lovely work – the way you’ve defined the muscle in the horses, yet still gave them a delicate look is amazing. What a talent you have!
