What breed is my lady?

I think she might be a Saddlebred or an Arabian X. I just got her and am real curious on what she is. And can you guess on how old she is? Her last owners have no idea because the owners before that told them 2 different answers. Http://m1279.photobucket.com/albumview/albums/jewelerin74/Mobile%20Uploads/20130323_182629_zps7c70909c.jpg.html?o=0 she usually carrys her head high. I have only trotted her once but don't remember it too well lol. Sense I got her Sunday it has been a while sense i've ridden her because i'm giving her time to aggust. But when I lunge her she looks like she has a smooth trot. And is a stubborn lady too lol

Picture isn't working

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

The picture is very small and you need to set her up without a saddle, standing four-square on solid ground. Don't do too much lunging in a small area. Good way to ruin a horse. Just keep riding.

She does appear to look like a possible Saddlebred, from what I see in the tiny picture.

I have no idea how to put pictures up like others but I have more pictures on my photobucket if you scroll through.

Go to the Conformation Critique forum and read the 'sticky' tutorial. This will show you how to take proper pictures of your horse. Then, go to your user CP and upload the photos there. Then you can copy them to individual message threads.

Few will answer you, if they have to go hunting for your pictures and then only finding pics of horses far away.

FF part of it being so small is it is linking to the mobile version of photobucket.

FF bigger versions of the pictures she has -


This link might work better for viewing. I'm not bringing them all over Mobile Uploads Photos by jewelerin74 | Photobucket

OP I see you posted this many, MANY places online just from a quick search. A lot of members are on multiple forums so don't be surprised to see the same answers over and over and over...

Thanks NdAppy. I'll stick to my thought of her being Saddlebred or mostly Saddlebred. Definitely needs her feet done.

Interesting that she has had several owners, yet not one has even asked the vet to judge her age. I hope the OP has a vet appointment asap, as well as the farrier. She probably needs all her shots, with such a past. I'm amazed that she is in such good condition, given so many homes.

Just looking at that face, with those upright ears, screams Saddlebred. And absolutely no work until those feet are done.

I am curious about the feet -- is it because she may have been wearing 'specialty' shoes at one point if she was showing? Like the look of her otherwise and I, also, think she's a saddlebred.
