Arabian - Bloodlines Information

So I've been debating putting my mare's bloodlines up here for a while. I'm generally more of a silent member...stalk the threads, but don't say much. But I've hit a wall in researching her most recent ancestors and if anyone knows anything about her bloodlines I would be very interested! From what I do know her sire Ariegance competed a lot in the western NY area in western pleasure. Her dam was used for barrel racing and pole bending. The next two generations after that I can't find much through my Google searches. Past that is when I'm able to find more info.

Also, if anyone could let me know if she's mostly Polish/Crabbet/Egyptian/etc. I would appreciate it. I believe she's mostly Polish/Crabbet?

Her registered name is Alayzia. Allbreed link: Alayzia Arabian

And of course info and pictures of her. She's 13, grey, has done two LD endurance rides, mostly we trail ride, but have dabbled in cow sorting and reining. Not competitively, just training.

Very pretty girl!

She is a nice blending of bloodlines... looks predominantly Crabbet, with a smattering of Polish (*Bask and *Witez II), and also Egyptian (Amir Ibn Shamah).

I especially like that line to The Midnight Sun!! And, *Serafix too.

I recognize a LOT of very well-known names in that pedigree, on both sides. Very nice.

As Remali said, predominantly Crabbet. The egyptian line is a strong one, her face has a lot of resemblance to Morafic, just more feminine. Nice girl!

No wonder she is such a beauty -- she is chuck full of Arab Royalty, clear in the back. She has every right to sashay around with a "Do you KNOW who I am?" look:)

I love the sweet expression in your mare's face:))

I am forum acquainted with a retired lady who bred, trained, showed Polish Arabs for many years. She is very knowledgeable and told me some interesting history on my Crabbett-bred Arab. One of those being that he is half brother to a Filly that sold for 2.44mm in 1984, at auction, right before the Arab market crashed to where, literally in 24 hours, Arabs were only worth pennies on the dollar.

She isn't on line every day but, if you're interested communicating with her, PM me and I'll be most happy to give her the link to your mare's pedigree:)

Thanks everyone! She is quite the pretty little thing...though I am biased.

She knows it too though. Walkinthewalk, she definitely does sashay around everywhere we go with the "look at me" attitude.

I know next to nothing about Arabs, but man is she pretty!

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

So here's a question for you Arabian lovers. Has anyone else heard/read about certain strains of Arabians, primarily Crabbet bred, having the ability to gait?

My mare has a gait in between the walk and trot. I call it her power walk, but the best way I can describe it is similar to the singlefoot. Her foot fall is the same as a walk, but much faster and very smooth. She tends to lower her head and really get it bobbing, and I can feel her really using her back.

I have never tried to train her to do it on cue. She usually does it when she's really excited to go, but I haven't asked for a trot yet. She'll also do it if I'm riding with my friends and their quarter horses. If they want to do a nice jog, she tends to "power walk" instead and usually even then she's still pulling away from them out in front.

I have not noticed it affecting her other gaits in anyway. She can do everywhere from a nice slow jog to a crazy extended trot, and she has one of the smoothest canters I've ever sat.

Rabiyas(RahasxRabiyat), the sire of Abu Farwa, was five gaited and showed off on the then popular Sunday shows at Kellogg ranch.

Yep! My old lady Arab mare is gaited too. :) Her father's maternal greatX3 grandfather was actually doubled registered as a TWH thanks to his gaits! My girl isn't quite that gaited, but she has a nice one..when she wants to. haha

And your girl is lovely! She looks like such a sweetheart!
