^^ you have to sift through all the tack to find the face! ;)

OP, what parts of her make you think she has something more than just Arab/QH? I'd just call her that and be done with it. Sweet looking little thing.

Yupp shes in a hole in the front, and I've always been told by friends and such she looks like she has something other then Quarter and Arabian so i was curious! As for her tack she's a very hard headed speed horse, she has her bridle then something to keep her head down that goes down to her breast collar and just a saddle and a pad. She's used to that much its what she started on, im trying to teach her to keep her head down this summer so we can take off some tack.

Honestly a lot of English riders do this, as well as western speed horses. The difference with mine is shes got a little bit of bling on her's. As for comfortably she feels more weight on her head but it doesnt hurt her one, but and it does nothing but pull her head down if she picks it up to high.

She is probably holding her head up because that is A LOT of pressure on her nose and in her mouth. Do you know how that bit works? It looks like it has a twisted wire, does it? And that "thing that keeps her head down" is called a tie down. It's mean for a horse to brace off and balance of when they are doing high speed events, not for keeping a horses head down. That set up is down right torture in even the lightest of hands.

And she is absolutely Arabian and some kind of stock horse.

I understand that tie downs don't hurt horses, but they aren't good for them. I understand that a lot of gamers use giant bits, but it doesn't mean they should. I ride english and western, and no matter what i do with my horse i can do it in a snaffle. And my horse has a whole lot of bling too.

I was drawn to horses as if they were magnets. It was in my blood. I must have inherited a genetic proclivity toward the equine species.
