The Polish were used a lot for racing, and were shown a lot at both halter and performance. She is a good mix of some very nice bloodlines!
Thank you loads! When I bought Ashen from the breeders they sent me her pedigree. I had never even looked at it when I bought her. I just liked the horse and she liked me.
I fell in love immediately and paid $1,100 in 2006 -including her bridle and saddle. She was a well handled and well mannered, gentle, but rusty greenbroke 6 yr old. I looked at her pedigree a few months later, but as you can tell, I know little about arabian bloodlines.
But apparently I must know a good horse when I see one! Or else, I am just durn lucky.
Did I pay too much?
