The French Anglo-Arab-horse traces back to 2 stallions: Massoud(an Arab) and Aslam (a horse of Turkish origin). These two stallions were crossed with English thoroughbred mares and produced the three mares that became the foundation of the Anglo Arab sport-horse breed. Delphine, Clovis and Danae. .

Uses: produced to be a sport horse the Anglo Arab has excelled in dressage, eventing and jumpers.
