She screams arabian to me. I have to disagree with you guys, I actually think her muzzle looks very arabian.... her nostrils are small and delicate, her muzzle is round. Her eyes are also very arabian to me. Add that to her arabian- type movement, and her light build, she definitely looks at least half arabian. What makes me think she might have something else, like, say standardbred, is her body's silhouette- The long back, high withers, and camped-out back legs make me thing of a standardbred. I have to say that I agree with Nokotaheaven on her probably being 3/4 arabian, and maybe 1/4 standie or saddlebred, maybe.
But I would not rule out the possibility of her being full arabian, not at all.

Her eye, her dishy face, her upper head, her easy of going all look Arabian to me, but I do think there is likely 1/4 something else to her...I could also be totally off and she could be pure and just not super-"typey" all around! Again, she's adorable and super sweet looking so I suppose that's all that matters...

I do see a lot of Arabian in her. But I'm with the non-majority here, I see a cross, in the second and fourth picture she looks VERY similar to a Standardbred.

Definitely a National Show Horse! Looks like she moves like my daughter's horse Jesse! NSH is an Arab/Saddlebred cross. The neck is what makes me think NSH, and he movement in the pic.

I think I meant Standardbred too when I said Saddlebred. I'm not familiar with any of those breeds but I was looking up pictures and that's where I got that from. Guess I'll have to post more pictures if we can ever get any weight on her!

Since she is 3 and might be having a growth spurt I do not think you will be very successful getting a lot more weight on her right now.
I have a 3 yo 1/2 arab gelding that is going through the same thing. It seemed that overnight he has gotten ribby,
His coat is very healthy still and he has plenty of energy.
His mother is a very hot horse and he gets it from her.
The vet advised feeding a little more but for the most part he is in good condition. He will gain weight back.
In fact before he started this growth spurt he was overweight and I have not reduced his feed. Shalom

She's actually 7 so we're hoping that in a couple months she'll be all filled out, she was very thin when we got her a few months ago and it's been tough getting weight on her but she's finally starting to show improvement.
