Need opinions on my mare's breed(s)! :)

Hey all! My name is Sara (new to the forum) I can't believe it took me this long to finally join lol

Anyway, I recently adopted my mare Vedra about 6 months ago. The rescue thought she was full Arab, however, I don't think she is . . . Maybe half, however, when she trots, I speculate some morgan influence or some other gaited breed.
She is about 15.3 hands, with a "?" kind of face stripe, and a polka dot on her one sock. Oh, and she has pretty large/wide feet (nothing about her is petite lol just refined haha)
SHe has the most personality I have ever seen in a horse. Period. She is extremely intelligent too.
As far as her movement goes, as I mentioned earlier about her trot, she has a lot of uphill movement, lot of suspension, and lots of forward energy.

So, what do you guys think?

Definitely Arabian or Arabian Cross.

Definitely an Arab but if she is gaited and a cross, I would suspect Saddlebred, not Morgan. Most Morgans are not gaited anyhow and she has more of a long, lanky Saddlebredy appearance to her but we would have to see her in motion to be sure otherwise I would just guess Arab ;)

She's very pretty-looks like she could be a handful. I agree she looks to be an Arab cross. There is a strain of Morgans that are gaited.

I guess gaited was the wrong choice of words, but you know how morgans have something special/different about their trot? She kinda does that lol

And yeah, she can definitely be a handful. She is well mannered, however, she just needs to b constantly doing something. Sometimes I think she has Horsey ADHD lol

Saddlebred is actually what I was suspecting too - wouldn't that maker her a "national show horse" then?

BUt she does have that long back and neck of a saddlebred for sure!

My money is on she is full Arab. That trot you notice is likely the floating trot many Arabs have...

As a side note, saddlebreds are a trotting breed, not a "gaited" breed as compare to a TWH, rocky, paso, etc. Naturally gaited saddlebreds are few and far between, and not the choice horse to cross with another trotting horse to get gaited.

As for the Ops horse, definitely Arab, and maybe not a cross. The Arab/ASB cross is very common, so it might well be that.

I'm with Face. She looks purebred Arabian to me.

WELL BRED Arabians should have good, solid bones and big feet. They're also known for a floaty trot.

She looks to be either Crabbet, Polish, or Russian bred with that straighter profile, but the lack of a pronounced jibbah doesn't mean she's not a purebred.

I have a Polish gelding with a fairly straight profile, and he's purebred.
