That would be interesting... I have an Arab/Percheron mare... but she's built more for Sport Horse, Dressage (show @ Training Level, and schooling 1st Level!!), and Hunter... hence, that's what I show her in. (My avatar is a pic of my Allie!)  Wink

Would like to see some pics (or a website w/ pics!) of your Arab/Percheron crosses!  Smiley

Maryjo's gelding, Made In The Shade, is a fine upper level dressage horse (Arab/Perch of course).  He was featured in a recent issue of the AHA mag.





One of our stallions has also sired two nice Arab/Perch's.  The mare now is in Pa with Kenyon Brewer.  Both started their early training very nicely in Eventing.

jnjararabiansjm .... there must be a typo in your website link here, it doesn't work .... at least for me.

HorsyChic, thanks.  Maryjo's "Shade" is really a spectacular horse.  MJ rode him in several disciplines before concentrating on Dressage.  The first pic of him is with her coach in the irons.  Wish I could locate a recent pic (I KNOW she's posted an even better one than the one in Modern Arabian Horse) of her riding him at Prix St. George or I1.  She's earned both her USDF Bronze and Silver medals on Shade.

"Tally" and Kenyon (who got her about a year ago) have been doing the Arab shows (SHUS, SHIH, and a bit over fences) and were at SHN last year.  Pretty good feat for a very green young mare and a busy veterinarian.  Kenyon wants to eventually Event which is why Tally was selected (won her first BN event here with Chrissi).  Kenyon will be taking her to a clinic with Jim Wofford this summer.  Tally is also inspected Red Premium and branded AWS.

Winston, unfortunately, is standing idle warming a pasture.  He was ready to start competition eventing, but his owner was not (she's VERY green in the saddle) and her fairly accomplished daughter is no longer riding. The owner can't bear to give him up (though she's had impressive offers), but neither can she afford to have someone else compete him, so he stands there well cared for and greatly loved but doing nothing under saddle.

I would not have considered this cross as a potential English or Park horse.  I would be very interested in seeing pictures of them moving under saddle.  I always figured percherons as the draftiest (is that a word?) moving horses but have seen Clydsdales that trotted level.

Laurie... I was thinking the same thing... Sport Horse, Dressage, Jumper, 3 day Eventer, etc... Sure... But, I wouldn't think the cross would make for a good English / Park Horse either...

Can ya post some pics for us  jnjarabiansjm???

I think it would depend on the "type" of percheron you are breeding to.  The more modern "Hitchy" type that they use in the show ring can really get thier feet up, but most don't have as much "sit" in thier back end as you would like for EP.  I would want to cross with an arab with and EXCEPTIONAL hind end to get and EP (or CEP) horse.

He's a link to an ad that show the more modern Perch movement:

How did the show season go with the half Perch/half Arab???  I've often thought of that cross myself.  I had a Perch stallion that was a HUGE mover and would have made awesome native costume horses!!!

Please spread the word to everyone who has information or interest in arab-percheron crosses -- there will soon be a new website and a re-opened registry of these crosses, known as Desert Normans.
Please pass my email along to anyone who may have an interest, but especially to those who have arab percheron crosses (Desert Normans).
I am especially looking to profile, with photos, Desert Normans who are currently showing successfully in various disciplines. For example, someone  mentioned a show horse called Made in the Shade who was featured in a magazine a while back. I'd be grateful if someone could point me to the owner and/or article.
Of the photos I receive, one or more horses will be chosen to be the featured photos on the home page - the "model" Desert Normans as it were.
I also encourage anyone who previously registered a horse with the Desert Norman Horse Registry to contact me so I can ensure your animal is in our database. The registry operated initially from 2000-2003, but then became inactive when its founder took ill, and some computer records were lost in the interim. 
The website should be up in less than a month, with online registration forms. photo gallery, breed history and information, breeding guidelines/advice, chat boards, and a classifieds section for DNs and DN breeding stock for sale.
Any input appreciated.
Many thanks for your help,
Kay Langmuir

Please see my earlier post on this thread for details on how this cross is being promoted as a emerging breed.
And would Maryjoh, owner of Made in the Shade, please email me directly so I could learn more about her horse and his show career. I would love to be able to profile him on the website as an example of what this breed is capable of.
Thanks,
Kay Langmuir
