What breed is my mare?

My grandma got me this mare when she was 3 and I was in the 5th grade (I'm in college now) as a Christmas present she adopted her from a rescue group and they said they didn't know what she was and on her adoption papers under breed all it says is horse.

She's only 14hh she's 14 years now and for a while I've been thinking Arab but she don't have the dished in face or the inward curving ears like an Arab so I'm thinking she's some kind of pony. Maybe? I don't know but a lady at my barn said she was a Paso Fino but my grandma has a Paso and BB (my mare) looks NOTHING like it. She is VERY gaited she has a gaited walk, trot, and canter. She does carry herself like an Arab, very elegantly and she does carry her tail high. So if you have an idea of what she might be let me know!

Here's a video of her so you can see how she moves:

Having owned several Arabs in the past, I would say she is definitely an Arab. Perhaps Quarab, and very possibly a Morab? I would think one of the latter simply because of her stocky build (mainly croup/hip angle), as opposed to full blood Arab. The way she moves looks very Arab to me. :)

Looks like an Arab to me. Or at least she has a good deal in her.
Remember not only are there different types of arabs, Polish, spainish, crabbet, russian, etc.
There are different strains that originated in the desert. One of them the Hamdani I believe has a more straight profile and is more muscular and stout than the others.
Also if you look at the pictures of the horses imported before the 90's those horses do not have extreme ly dished faces and had far more substance than what some are breeding for today. Good luck.

Looks arab to me also, at least 1/2 arab. I do not see any gait in her in the video. Do you have a video with you riding her to show what "gait" she does?

I agree, I don't see any gaited movement in the video.

She definitely has some Arab in her. She isn't gaited but she definitely moves like an Arabian. From her close-coupled build and height I'd say she's probably a Welsh pony x Arab cross. There's something distinctly pony-ish about her.

Agree she definitely looks like an arab cross. Arab/morgan or QH/arab maybe???

Arab mixed with something is what I see, don't see a gaited horse mixed in however.

I agree on the Arab/Welsh call. Looks pretty much exactly like ones I've seen before.
