Sorrel: Frequently asked questions

What types of Sorrel are there and what determines a good product?

There are two types of Sorrel. The first is the common garden sorrel, which has a sour taste and grows in temperate climates around the world. It can be used as an herb or salad green when young but becomes too bitter to eat with age. The second type is tropical sorrel, also called dukka (Sorrell) or roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa). This plant produces red flowers that yield a tart juice; it’s often made into drinks like Jamaica ginger beer and lemonade-like beverages from India known as sharbat gulaab jaamun.

The quality of the sorrel is determined by its color, texture and taste. It should be bright green in color with a smooth surface, not rough or wrinkled. Its flavor should be tart but sweet at the same time; it shouldn’t have an overly sour or bitter taste to it.

Who should use a Sorrel?

Anyone who wants to get the most out of their horse should use a Sorrel. It is an excellent choice for any discipline, from trail riding and endurance to jumping or dressage.

Based on what criteria should you buy a Sorrel?

The first thing you should do is to check out the horse’s conformation. Look at his legs, feet and hooves. Are they sound? Is he well-built with a good shoulder and hip angle? Does he have a nice head on him that fits into your idea of what an Arab should look like? If so, then take it from there.

The first thing that you should look out for is the color. A Sorrel horse’s coat can be a variety of shades, from light to dark brown and even black in some cases. However, if it has white markings on its body or legs then it is not considered as a purebred sorrel but rather an Appaloosa instead (which will also have spots). If there are no white markings at all then chances are good that you have found yourself looking at a true sorrel. Another important factor to consider when comparing two horses with similar coloring would be their size; since both breeds vary greatly in this area so do their prices.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Sorrel?


A Sorrel is a cross between an Arab and Thoroughbred. It has the speed of an Arabian, but with more stamina than most other breeds. They are also very intelligent horses, which makes them easy to train for all disciplines from dressage to jumping.


The disadvantages of a Sorrel are that they have no speed, and their attacks do not inflict much damage. They also cannot jump very high or far.
