Half-Andalusian Cross Registries
If you are interested in breeding an Andalusian cross, but are worried about ending up with an unregisterable foal, think twice!
Introducing Spanish blood into your breeding program has many benefits...strength, beauty, versatility, elegance, courage and kind temperment! The International Andalusian and Lusitano Horse Association (IALHA) has created a half-registry. Your cross can be registered and can be shown at the IALHA shows which have 1/2 Andalusian classes!

The "Hispano-Arab" is a cross of a purebred, registered Andalusian with a purebred, registered Arabian. The Hispano-Arab is not a new breed, actually, it is the combination of two of the world's oldest breeds, the Andalusian x Arabian.
The Andalusian also crosses successfully with Paso Finos, Peruvian Pasos, Appaloosa and Morgan. These crosses all have registries and shows, in addition to the 1/2 Andalusian registry.
