To me has a QH build and looks dainty/fine in the face and head like an arab. The ears almost have that arab look just a little too. Hard to tell. Though I have seen Appendix QHs that look very similar to her. Several of our white arabs when I was younger had flea-bitten coloration which makes me think possibly some arab in there. It is so hard to tell from pictures and sometimes you can't tell when they are standing a two feet away from you. She looks like a very sweet horse. :)

Also her height, arabs are typically on the smaller side. Most appendix QH's I have seen are pretty leggy.

Yea... I agree with what people have said.. But I now also suspect it's maybe more like QH/Tb/Arab or something, because she kind of resembles a thoroughbred i once knew. also one thing people didn't take note of was her height. Is she something like 14.3-15.1?

I see QH in the forearm, the hip and the croup. I see Arab in her bc she is lighter boned than a QH that size. I see no TB in her at all. If she was a QH/TB cross she would be leggier. BTW, is she is 1/2 Arab the lighter bone doesn't mean she can't carry weight.
Whatever, she IS a keeper. =D

Thanks! And no, I don't know for sure. I'm wanting some educated guesses.

I was told by a rescue that she was a QH/Appaloosa cross.
I was like... no. Just no.
Most horses that I've worked with have been TWH, QH, TB, Appaloosa, Paint and some pony breeds.
I know that she isn't a full stock horse. She just looks too fine in some places to be a bulky stock horse. She has a big body, which seems QH (or some other stock breed), but then a narrow body, neck, and face.

All the stock horses I know are ROUND barreled.

It's where I learned about working hard
And having a little was just enough

She is either 14.3 or 15 hands.

I keep thinking TB when I look at her withers. Her withers reminds me of a TB I knew before. Buuut, her legs aren't long enough to be a TB. /facepalm

What about her reminds you of a TB?

I agree about her being more leggy if she had TB in her. If she does have TB influence, it didn't go to her legs!

Oh, she IS definitely a keeper. c:
She has truly been every I could ask.
I got her unbroke (I was told she was green...), so I thought "OH CRAP. How am I going to do this alone?" But she turned out to be the quickest learner. She still has an attitude when it comes to not wanting to listen or slow down, but that'll take time.


If this helps anyone else:
She seems to be an all-around horse.
Her movement is quick, floaty, and animated. (Definitely not lazy!)
I'd say she'd be best at english pleasure compared to western pleasure since she likes to go fast.

She has the speed and quick turning for gymkhana, the scope and ping for jumping, and the curiosity and courage for cross country/trails.

She isn't always the most tolerant horse when it comes to leg pressure, but she is forgiving of a bad seat and hands. I had my mom get on her (note: she only rode a few horses in her life, and that was when she was young) and she was so tolerant! When I get on her sometimes... not so much.
She knows who she has to be careful around (kids, older and disabled people, etc.) and she knows who she gets to test/mess around with (me!).

She has very prominent features of both breeds, stockier built, but too refined to be a pure QH, ears and eyes are Arab, then as you describe her, tail curled=Arab. Floating movement = Arab. Tail set lower, rounded butt= QH.
Also the going fast I've seen a lot in quarabs and the knowing who's on board and giving a hard time to the knowledgeable rider
To be 1000% sure I would need to see her move, tho
