Due to many knee problems/surgeries I've been looking more into gaited breeds.  I've rode a few gaited horses and I don't have nearly as much pain in my knee after a ride.  I hate the idea of leaving the arab world, but was wondering if there is anyone out there crossing PB arabs to gaited breeds?

I know that they have 5 gaited Half-Arabs (NSH), but I don't really think that 5-gaited is what you're meaning.

I'm looking more for the arab crosses with the Tennessee Walking Horse, paso fino, etc.  Basically more of a pleasure, trail type horse.

I knew a rancher in Montana who used all TWH/Arab crosses on his farm.  70-80% were natually gaited, and most of the rest could be trained to gait.

They worked cattle very well too.

If you're just using them for trail riding/endurance I'd say go for it (they probably wouldn't have a market in the show world though).

This sounds weird, but my purebred arab can "Fox trot"!  I trained for Natrc and endurance with my riding partner who rides a fox trotter and my arab (LK MR BLACK) picked it up and even got the fox trotter people's attention.  I  later found out that there are some arabs that will gate naturally and do a running walk.
I think he picked it up because my friend's horse gated faster than a walk but slower than an endurance trot.  I would walk then trot over and over again to stay behind the fox trotter and eventually my horse just started fox trotting to keep the pace.  We rode like this for many years together and it is pretty comfortable!

I have a TWH/Arabian who is trained to 1st level dressage and is a fantastic trail horse. He is not gaited but is extremely smooth and comfortable to ride, but is always the fastest horse on the trail. Loooooong steps and an energetic pace!

I have a 1/2 arab 1/2 foxtrotter right now, and he doesn't
gait under-saddle.   I have seen him gait in turn-out, and have
been told by a couple of "wanna-be" trainers that they could
get him gaiting for me... but it's not that important to me.
So, even though the "wiring" is there to gait, it doesn't seem
to be natural for him to gait...

My sister has a full foxtrotter, and she RAVES about how
much more comfortable she is riding his gait, rather than a
trotting horse, on the trail.   She has had tons of problems
with her back & knees prior to this horse, but now seems to
be in 7th heaven.

Hope you find what you are looking for,

I have a registered half arabian filly who's sire is a missouri foxtrotter. Her dam died when she was 4 days old(long story)and I raised her on formula. For some reason she seems to have been stunted and may never reach 14 hands. But anyway, there are others in my area, check craigslist, springfield, mo and you will see them from time to time. You can put in a search for half arabians.
I have 2 beautiful buckskin half arabians for sale now. Both are colts but are Quarterhorse crosses.

This thread is similar to the one I started -- Half Pinto/Arab?

I'm just wondering what the market is like for a Half-Gaited/Arab.
Particularly a Half-Tennessee Walking Horse/Arab.

Would it make a difference if the resulting foal is tobiano and can also be registered with PtHA (Pinto).
