Question What breed(s) of horse could this be?

Hey horse people, I recently acquired a new mare. The lady I got her from said she was saved from a kill pen so not much is known about her past. She is the strangest horse proportionately I have ever seen, she has an unusually long neck and back and her back is semi swayed due to her being under weight. Anyways I was wondering if anyone knows anything about what breed(s) she could be... Thanks

Ugh her back looks TERRIBLE. And her legs look wonky to me. I hope you don't plan on riding her, maybe there was a reason why she was in the kill pen :/

Anyways, idk what breed she could be.

Yea I thought the same thing about her legs in the first picture but they don't look like that when you are looking at them in person, I had a full work up done on her and besides being very under weight she is fine and will make a great riding horse. These pics are also about 2 months old and her back has filled out much more.

Yikes, how old is she? If she is not terribly old I would be very concerned about her sway back and riding. No amount of weight can fix bony structure flaws, in fact may only make them worse. And if you do start riding her, pay close attention to saddle fit, it can be nearly impossible to fit these guys to make riding comfortable for them.

As far as breed, I would guess TB or QH, a poorly conformed and bred one...

She looks like a Quarter Horse to me.

If you can get some help from a GOOD dressage trainer, you can improve her back, I think. I saw a Morgan similar to this, and when they changed trainers, he improved. She needs to be taught to round (not just put her head down) so that she uses her stomach muscles, and lifts her back.

She looks worth the work, to me. I think she is pretty.

Being poor she looks worse! She does look QH-esq, maybe not pure bred but there are some influences there. She looks like a cut and shut horse, bless her!. I wouldnt be riding her until she puts a lot more condition on and seen the farrier.

I'm thinking stunted Saddlebred.

From a breeder that had no clue.

Poorly bred Saddlebred or Saddlebred cross. The sway back is VERY common in Saddlebreds. It is not to do with her being thin. Her back might be improved a little, but not much. What you get is what you see in this girl.

Now, horses with Lordosis or sway backs, can be ridden and make nice riding horses. However, do not ride her until she is late three or four year old. Her saddle must be extremely carefully fitted.

Once she is fed well and in condtion, she will be looking much different, in spite of her back problem.

To me, head looks QH, and body (except for the back) looks like light Morgan.

Saddlebread's are gaited aren't they? Also when I first got her I was told she was either a QH Arab or Arab TB cross... I don't know though... She's not very tall either maybe 15hh at the most, my QH mare is around 15 too but I can't get them close enough to compare lol
