Can anyone help me with determining what my horse was breed for or might be good at?

I have recently acquired a horse and was given very limited history on her; I do have all her papers and have ridden her on trails extensively trying to feel her out. So far rides great, very calm, no spook, almost a plug, lol. Very sure footed, but very antsy when tied, can be bossy on the ground 15.3 hands tall. Here is her pedigree (, can anyone tell me much about her breeding (traits, flaws, what she might be good at, anything), I have very limited knowledge of bloodlines. Any info would be helpful. I found her last registered owner online and she lives here in Georgia and sent her an email yesterday so maybe that can help me shed some light on some of my questions, but I know itís a longshot. I would love to compete with her. Thanks guys.
I attached a pic of Abby in pasture alone.

My husband also recently got a horse, who was unregistered but AQHA registerable, unsure what we want to do with her currently but her sire is sonnys obvious and this is the pedigree ( Dam is St bars doc olena. We have had my husbands horse who we call jazz HYPP tested and she is negative but any info or suggestions about her breeding would also be greatly appreciated.
attached a pic of jazz as well (near round pen panels at the place we got her from)

I don't know much about the breeding or pedigree, but what do you plan or hope to do with her?

If you look at some of the horse's in her pedigree and run your cursor over the i with the circle around it, some of the information of the horse pops up...

From what I've read on her sire's side, she's breed for halter classes because that's what her ancestors did.

She's cute and built like a brick house! but, she needs some farrier attention. Her toes are really long and heels run under, especailly in front.
