Does she look more like an arab or a welsh?

Okay...so some days she looks welsh to me and then she looks more arab-y and acts like an arab. I was wondering what you guys thought because I am planning on taking her to a local show during the winter or fall and don't know if I should get a regular leather halter or an arab halter....here ...

Pretty girl you've got there. Lucky you :) How old/tall is she? I have a part arab mare and find that the "cob" size halter fits her great. Won't go near my thoroughbred though.

No matter what road I travel, I'm going home and if I'm riding a horse I am halfway there.

Thank You,Day Mares. She is 13 hands or maybe a bit taller now. She's a yearling and growing like a weed.

EthanQ, so I should probably get an arab show halter instead? I wonder what type of arab she is. Maybe Polish? She doesn't have that dish face really anymore.She had a bit of one when she was younger.

I don't know much about the diff types of arabs but i can tell when I see one. the halter decision is up to you but as long as she has a dshed face, id go wit the arab halter :)

Is this one yours?! Very pretty!

In some photos she reminds me of a pony, in others she looks arab. Either way, I think a dainty-looking arab-type halter would look best :)

This girl is mine :) She is a sweet thing!

So her face isn't too big looking for an arab halter?

The QH Impressive showed in an Arab halter.

I would get her an arab halter. She looks more welsh to me but arab halters are flashy.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

She looks like a welsh to me. But Arabs can come in all shapes and sizes. I had an Arab who was 16hh and had a face like a TB. While my friend had one the looked like a warmblood cross.
