Houston, if you could post the link to her pedigree again, folks can click on pics of ancestors of her French side
Besides the French, Polish and Russian Arabians are, or better were, until it started to become "type" only, selectively bred for racing, breeding stock had to prove itself on the track first, the ones who didn't make it were culled( or sold to America.....no kiddin'). Poles and Russians managed to keep the " pretty" in the fast horses, the French not so much. For me French Arabs resemble TB's more than anything. Glad this girl got a big heap from her mainly Polish side

She'll be coming in shape quickly when worked regularly.
For her neck, ground poles and cavalettis, yes, and lots of bending and turning. Never go straight. Circles, voltes, serpentines, shoukder-in and leg yields thrown in, never straight.
Wallaby and Houston like this.

Here's her pedigree: Chador Arabian

I'm glad she got a good chunk of Polish genes as well! She has a pretty little face. Not a dramatic dish like some halter horses of course but there is no mistaking she is Arab!
