Short summary
In this study we analysed the genetic contribution of the Arabian horse to the Lipizzan gene pool and its association with the overall type via shape regression analysis in 158 Lipizzan horses from the Austrian stud farm of Piber. Although crossbreeding with Arabian horses took place more than 100 years ago, we found a significant association of Lipizzan body shape (p < 0.003) with individual coefficients of Arabian gene proportion.
