    Yea, not many people don't seem to like them.

    There must be a little of Arab in her. The farrier's been around everywhere, seen tons of horses.
    Also, her personality. Even though it doesn't tell us the breed. She's pretty quick on her feet, don't wanna stand still, fidgets on the spot if you do. Though after a bit she settles down. She -loves- hill climbing. I was standing facing a cut out of the ground. Which is just straight up and down, about as tall as her. One minute I was talking to someone up the top. The next we were up there! XD And I take her for rides up our mountain every day. She acts a bit spooky. But she doesn't actually spook.

    I think your farrier is wrong in this case.

    The personality traits you describe could have totally been my last mare, a TB. Or my old pony I had when I was a kid, a Welsh B. There is no set personality for any breed, and we need to let go of the stereotypes that we attach. TBs aren't flighty from birth, they are flighty from race training.

    Physically, I can't see any Arab in her. I can see some QH, either she is not as stocky as a QH can be or she is a cross. At 14hh she could be a cross with pretty much any breed from a medium pony to a tallish horse.

    Can you trace her back to the breeders? Only they will be able to tell you for sure :)

    Sorry, but I also don't see arab. I know arabs, I've had one, worked with them, and they are my favorite breed! Like another poster said, she lacks a high tail set, refined nose and face, etc. Her personality has nothing to do with what her breed is. She could just be a quarter horse!

    I think she might be a tb x qh, or an appendix as it is usually called. I didn't like tb's very much until I got one. But they can be super sweet and are great horses (well, mine is at least)! Even if the breed isn't your favorite, the horse could be the best one you will ever know. The breed does NOT determine the horse, so no need to stereotype and say that just because you hate the breed the horse isn't as "awesome" as she would have been otherwise.

    Yea it can be the best horse I've known. I've ridden a bombproof TB before. And she was pretty great. But I'm still not changing my mind.

    I was in no way saying that. She is still awesome no matter what she is. I'm not that vain.
    And I quote, from MY text.(Use of capitals, since you seem to like it) "Also, her personality. Even though it doesn't tell us the breed."


    I've ridden a ton of horses in my life, as I was a hand for some dealer. And I've been to PC and ridden friends horses. I don't like TBs. Sure they can be good, but that's just my opinion. I can have it. Doesn't mean to say I'm not going to buy a cross. But I wouldn't buy a purebred. I don't like pure anythings.
    And I don't mind if you say she hasn't got Arab in her. I've only been around QHs my life, so I don't know that much about them. But I mind if you're trying to tell me I'm stereotyping them rudely.

    She's cute, but I don't think she has an arab in her. She looks mainly quarter horse to me... maybe TB mixed in.

    Maybe I'm just used to the chunky Quarter Horses.
