Breeding Arabian Mare

I have an Arabian mare that I am going to breed down the road, provided that she proves herself in the show ring first, but I know very little about Arabian bloodlines and what I should be looking for. Here's her pedigree: Alada Dreame Vs Arabian she's Crabbet bred very sport horsey, 14.2 hands, a little bulkier, though still refined, and I would like to keep her nice personality, and smart mind, as well as her beautiful movement. I would like to stay on the smaller side, keep the foundation type lines. It will be a few years before I seriously start picking out stallions, but I would like to get ideas, and start my research now so that I am fully informed, and know what I need about the current bloodlines before just going out and randomly picking a stallion I think looks cute. Here's a couple pictures of her so you can get an idea of what she looks like. I don't have any good conformation shots at the moment, so this is the best I've got. Sorry about the third one being blurry, but I wanted you to get an idea of how she moves.

As a note, she's not Crabbet bred. She does have lines to the Crabbet horses, as do most modern day Arabs, but she also delectable blend of the best Polish bloodlines through Bask and Aladdin, as well as that lovely Domestic line to Khemosabi.

I absolutely adore her pedigree, it's a fabulous blend of all the old time legends with less inbreeding then you'd see on a horse with Crabbet and Bask lines. She's a very nice mare, very athletic and sporty while still being very refined. I would definitely veer more towards a performance stud for her, even more of the sporthorse variety to really pull on that athletic blood. What do you want to do with the foal?

Hmm.. I was told she was Crabbet bred. Well ya learn something new every day lol. I want to do dressage and jumping along with the basic english equitation and pleasure. I don't know how she jumps with a rider, but I know that on her own she can jump a 5' pipe corral, and she's got gorgeous movement. Sometime I'll have to take a video of her moving. I'm planning on taking her to a show where half the classes are Arabian breed classes, just to have her out there, and see what a show is about, but I won't actually be showing her.

Oh, and the only other thing I would change, is a bit more refined of a head. She's got the dishy face, but to me it seems very subtle.

I think her head is fine... She is a pretty mare.

I can't suggest any studs for you right now but her head IS beautiful, and what an Arabian's should be, imo.

I guess that I've just been seeing all those SUPER dishy faces in a lot of the pictures I've been seeing, and then I look at her, and she doesn't look so dishy. Like I said though, I don't know a huge amount about Arabians, I wasn't planning on getting a horse for a while, and I wanted a warmblood, but I wanted to get her out of her crappy circumstances, and found out that I got an amazing horse out of the deal. So now I'm starting to do all my research after getting her lol.

Oh, and I forgot to say that she's 5, hence the wanting to show her and put miles on her before I get really serious about breeding her, and using the time to find out all I can about the breed.

I agree 100%. The last pic of the face. The dishier they get the stranger they get. And that's from a HUGE arab person. Faces like that seem to come from egyptian lines, I think. The mare in my avatar, is a little too dishey for me, but she is almost 100% egyptian.

Also don't forget that most of the 'dishy' pics you see are pro photos taken with the intention to present the horse as dishy. So the angles are all focussing on that, plus the horses are slathered in oil and wearing make-up. Look at 'candid' photos of those horses, and compare that to your mare. She has a lovely face :)
