    I only see QH. Some QH's are fine boned and small headed. Her knee action is very low.

    This is what an Arabian moves like. MUCH more animated. It's almost like they have springs in their legs.


    I used to have lower quality, trail riding Arabians, and at liberty they had that springy-action too.

    That is not a good example of how an Arabian moves naturally, sorry.....did you see his hooves?
    This one is bred for English pleasure/park=high knee action.
    And it has nothing to do with " lower quality" when they don't move like that.....just saying

    Also, the OP's horse is a MIX of Arab and QH IMO. I've seen quarabs with very good movement but also with somewhat less reach.

    I have several arab/QHs here an d have sold others.
    That mare is stock horse and an Arab. Now I am not going to bet the farm on it. My first born maybe but onl if I still get ot keep any future grandchildren and still see the kid on holy days. Shalom
    I'm not saying the pony IS a Connemara as in the picture, just she looks like she has Connemara in her. Not sure what a stock horse is and we don't have Quarab in England either LOL. No matter what, she is a lovely horse.

    I agree with deserthorsewoman. That arabian is also probably a stallion, therefore showing off more. I think if any horse had that much energy being kept back (since they were walking the horse in and then all of a sudden released the pressure) they would prance around a bit like that.

    And where I live (Midwest) there seems to be quite a few Connemaras. I know of three purebreds. They were used at a children's lesson and therapeutic barn. I'm sure there have both several others there too that could have been part breed. They seem to be a quite favored pony for lessons.

    She looks like a Quarter Horse/Arab cross.

    That was just a video I grabbed off of You-tube because it looked like it had a good example of Arab-y movement to me.

    What I meant by lower quality is that even back-yard Arabians have floating movement at liberty. At least mine did. They were not Scottsdale caliber.....just trail horses and they still have floating movement at liberty.

    Everyone has their opinion. I just don't see the OP's horse moving like at Arabian. That doesn't mean I'm right. But nothing screams Arabian except perhaps the color. And most common breeds have gray.

    I did get what you were trying to say, don't worry
    It was just not the best example.
    Im still for quarab, tho. I've seen more Araby ones, for sure, but she still has some features who give the Arab away. Apart from the color. And I bet she has better, floatier movement now that her feet have been fixed.
    But, no matter what she I, she is awfully cute
