Helpful Information

Considering the inherent toughness of both the Mustang and the Arabian, it’s surprising that this mix is so new. The breed is a cross that combines two of the oldest and hardiest breeds on the planet.

Early in the 1990′s Michele Brown of Utah experimented by crossing an unrefined Mustang with an Arabian. Her idea was that the cross would be interesting & the result is a highly spirited animal with a willingness to please, providing you have their trust.

This ‘breed’ was called Abstang, and a registry was established in 1993 to obtain acknowledgement for the new breed. It turned out that the animals had the incredible endurance of the Arabian and fearlessness of the Mustang, who by the way, also has great endurance capability.

Approximately 1500 horses are registered to present. To date, no Abstang to Abstang crosses have been documented.
