what breed is my mare

I have heard things like she's a Arabian,Tennessee walker or Paso Fino. I need to know for sure what type of breed she is.

You'll never know for sure unless you have papers and a pedigree for that horse.

We can only guess...

I see QH and Arabian. Maybe TB? Who knows...

I agree with ClaPorte, if you don't have papers or ask her original owners you may never know..

Is there any way you can get conformation shots? A picture of each side, front, and hind end of the horse, on even ground..

Is she gaited?

Sidenote, I know I need to get back with you about the other stuff but I'll try to really soon..

Sorry, I didn't mean purebred TB. TB crossed with...something. Which is completely possible for a TB cross to be 14 hands.

My trainer said she has a little bit of a gait. He's thinking she's arab and he said he's going to take her on the barrels for me because she's a perfect barrel horse for me :)

I was just wondering, usually gaited horses like Tennessee Walkers aren't good at barrels..They just aren't meant to do this type of sport.. I would love to see a video of her, doesn't have to be on barrels.. If she doesn't have a definite gait she's probably a mix of something.

Im thinking she's Arab though because her canter isnt gaited at all. I seen her run and she's definitely going to make a good barrel horse the trainer said because she's hot headed

I actually see more QH with a babydoll head. The height is right, and QH's have such a diversity of body shapes these days. That's just my first impression, though.

I agree. A video of her movement would definitely help.

That really means nothing as far as excluding TB as a contributing breed. There are small purebred TBs and TB blood diluted by smaller breeds in a cross can also produce a horse that size that has TB blood.
