Quarab Facts & Information (Breed Profile)
Quarabs were developed in the 1960s in the United States.
In order for a Quarab to be eligible for registration with the AHQHR, the Quarter Horse or Paint Horse parent of the Quarab must first be registered with either the American Quarter Horse Association or the American Paint Horse Association.
The first Quarab registry was established in 1984, but eventually ceased operations.
The International Quarab Horse Association was established in 1999 and continues to be the most influential organization in the Quarab breeding industry.
The registration will only accept horses whose parents are registered with the appropriate breed registries, which are the American Quarter Horse Association, the Arabian Horse Association, or the American Paint Horse Association.
Additionally, horses must have at least 1/8 of their blood come from either the Arabian or the stock (Quarter or Paint) horse parent.
