Can someone please help tell me what breed my horse is? Greatly appreciated :)

Hello there I adopted my horse, Asiya, from the humane society after training her where I worked at, her foster home. I have been told by nearly everyone that she is Arabian, and she does look Arabian to me. I've had her for two years and then the vet comes out for coggins test and asks if she is and Andalusian. She says that she has all the traits and features of an Andalusian. She doesn't have the small body of the Arabian, but when she runs her head is way up high as is her tail and her hooves look as if they are flying, almost like shes hopping like a rabbit, just more graceful . I've been told Andalusians run like this too?? I've attached pictures of before she was rescued by humane society and after I've adopted her, yes it is the same horse.

please help me :) thank you very much!

She looks like she might be a quarab (quarter horse/Arab cross). She does look very Andalusian in that first pic, but unless andalusians are relatively common in your area, I highly doubt she is (for example, I know of two andalusians within a 75 mile radius of where I live).

She might be an andy, just very malnourished when she was young so didn't reach the full height.

I'm not to sure though...

Maybe a morab? Morgan Arab mix?

There is no sport like barrel racing. It requires more speed than a sprinter, more balance than a gymnast, more grace than a dancer, and a stronger team than football.

I'm hoping she's half Arab and andalusian . I wish there was a way to find out if she ever had papers or get a hold of the terrible people that did that to her to see where she came from,, and thank you barrelbeginner

Wow, what a transformation!

She might be an Arab cross. Honestly though? My first thought when I saw her face was Saddlebred. Maybe she's a saddlebred x arab?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:
