I think she is 100% Arabian. :) She looks like my friend's grey.

They're a Gaited Breed, that's why she feel's prancy. If you watch her trot she is flicking her feet. Very pretty movement, the arabian horse has.

Arabians are not gaited. They have a very smooth trot with lots of action but it is a trot. They walk trot and canter. No runnig walk. shuffle. rack or fox trot.
That mare does indeed look like a purebred. Then again i ave 3/4 and 7/8 arabians here that look like purebreds. Shalom

To answer the question you asked ..... Nope,
To answer the question you think you asked, pretty much.

Arabs are people, horses are Arabians.

I always had my suspicions that my horse is a person.

Most definitely looks purebred to me.

I'm always amazed at people who seem to think Arabians are not calm, I owned them all my life, since the early 1970's, I never had a more quiet horse than my Arabians. You will find that the Arabians that are not calm were either shown at halter (AKA the freakshow here in the U.S.), or were mistreated and mishandled, they don't put up with rough treatment.

Wanted to add, regarding being gaited. Technically, no, Arabians are not gaited. But *Raseyn, a very well-known stallion who sired many well-know horses, was known to be five-gaited, naturally. My mare had several crossed to *Raseyn. I'm not aware of any other Arabians that have done this though.

Raseyn
I completely agree; my Arabian is one of the quietest, calmest horses I've ever ridden. I don't TELL him what to do, I ASK him. They're very smart horses. If I ever try to tell him what to do, he gets sassy with me real fast.

Looks Arab to me.
I've had a number of very mellow ones. I love the breed.
I've seen more nutty Arab owners than Arab horses.
