Breed Guess!

My new little paint horse. He is right @ 14hh.
Everyone at my barn is making comments about how small and petite he is.
It kind of hurts my feelings . I am 5'5'' and 150 lbs. I don't ride often, or hard. My plans for this guy are just trails every now and then :)
Someone told me he might be a Spanish Mustang bc of his shorter back, and petite build.
What do you think he is? I have no clue who his sire/dam are.

How old is he? I don't really have a breed guess, but his narrow-ness reminds me a lot of the young (2-4) Arabians at the barn I work at. He has cute ears!

You look great on him! Don't let people get you down. I think he looks like an Arab cross. He has the short back, and a Arab like neck. The head... Not too much... His body is nearly identical too my 4 year old Arabian filly.

Those Tippy little ears make me think ArabX too. I've seen tiny ears on other breeds but that tippy shape is pretty Arabian.

Thats neat ! I have always loved Arabs. Someone on another forum suggested American Indian horse too as they are narrow, short backed, and petite built.

Im guessing something with Arab, Paint, and Thoroughbred.

I also agree that you are not too big for him AT ALL. I ride a 14.2h QH and I'm definitely 20lbs heavier than you (he's the horse in my avatar). For his breed, I agree he definitely has some Arab and paint in him... maybe some tb too?

Hard to tell. I would guess a bit of arab, just because of the way his body is structured, but you dont see much of that in his head. Another possability would be a welshXpaint as he's got a thoroughbred-like face but is smaller like a welsh
