    I'd say she's got Arab in her for sure...her appearance, and the way she jumps and moves in those pics strongly suggests it. Crossed what with? Who knows...and who cares, really...she's one very fine looking mare

    In the bottom and top one I see QH big time I can kinda see it in the third pic and quite a bit in the jumping picture.

    Thank you Tayz, that's very sweet!!

    Wallaby- I mentioned this to the owner and she considered it.. it's a possibility but this horse has the scope for probably 3'6 at least, most Arabs don't I don't think?

    Thanks for the guesses everyone, much appreciated!

    From what I've read/heard of Polish Arabians, they were bred to be more athletic and "useable" than your average Egyptian or Crabbet bred Arab, so it's within the realm of possibility that she could have that much scope and be pure Arab.
    My mare is mostly Polish, with a little Crabbet, on her dad's side (her mom is unknown but I'm pretty sure she was probably mostly Polish too), and she's a scopey jumper, even at 25! I haven't jumped her seriously because of her age but I have free lunged her over a tiny jump or two (2ft aprox) and she cleared them with about 2 feet to spare. Even after getting comfortable with them, she was still clearing them with plenty of room and asking for more. Anything is possible!

    She's adorable, whatever she is!

    Quarab or Appendix would be my guess. At first, I thought Appendix but then when others said Arabian I looked closer and could see it.

    I don't think she looks QH at all. Maybe her face in the second pic, but her tail ties in differently, and she's definitely muscled differently.
