I agree with tinyliny, her face screams Arab and her body could also be a Arab, depending on breeding.. I could guess full arab, if not that a arabXQh.

Im thinking Quarab too because she has the quarter horse traits but her slinder face I knew she wasnt full qh, she's small but talk about a good sure footed horse she definitely is.

Just a suggestion - post a good side picture with clear images of all 4 lower legs and hooves over in the conformation critique section. She's a very nice little mare, but I think there is something going on with her pasturns.

They should slope at about the same angle as her hooves...

The 2nd picture of her, she looks to be calf-kneed. She also isn't squared up, so it could just be how she's standing, the angle etc.

As for her pasterns, looks like slopping foot.

I am not a conformation "expert" by any means, so I would have her square up, take pics of her and post to those who better know conformation.

I agree though, she does scream Arab to me. I'm leaning towards Quarab.

I was thinking that something might be off in her hind legs too.
Arabs are horses they are not ponies.
Some may be pony sized but they are still horses.
Horses and ponies are structurally different. Shalom

Truthfully, I don't see anything wrong with her legs, she just appears to have quite a bit of angle in her pasterns. I've seen that in a lot of Arabs and it never caused a problem for them.

Lindsey, the pony vs horse thing is something that is usually up for debate LOL. Depending on where you are from, what discipline you ride, what types of people you learn from, etc will dictate how you view that particular subject.

Many people view any equine under the height of ?14.2? A "pony", regardless of what breed it might be.

Then there are others like me, and apparently dbarabians, that go by breed and call a pony a pony because that's their breed, regardless of height. Same thing for horses. I used to have a registered QH that barely broke 13 hands but she was never, ever a "pony", she was always a horse because she was a horse breed.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
