Agree with this 100%.

I don't see anything glaringly wrong. I don't see a National Champion halter prospect, but I don't much care for Halter conformation either.
As per WP, that all depends on her ability, which you won't know until you start her. But she is a nice looking filly, even if she isn't smooth enough for Halter, I do see performance prospect.

Thanks Whisper, your input is valuable to me because you are more experienced with Arabians than I am. I hope I learn some vital key points from you in the future.

No problem!
The only thing that I don't like that stands out for me is the way her neck ties into withers. But she is only a yearling - tgat can change dratstically. Good hip, nice shoulder, great short back, lovely face. She really took after Soho Carol in that respect.
She has an interesting mixture of new Halter horses and older Performance horses. Soho Carol was very exotic and alot of his foals have been exported over seas. Ali Jamaal is a great Halter producer, I just find him over used.
LOVE her dam lines. Muscat and Naridaini are two of my favourites, tossed in with Khemosabi and Bey Shah. These guys produced lots of substance and excellent working horses that have done extremely well in both the Western Pleasure and Reining rings. I'm a sucker for old foundation lines her dam has some of the best.
She could change alot in a year or two and blossom into a Halter prospect, and seeing as how I'm assuming she isn't futurity nominated, waiting to do Halter as a three/four year old is just fine.
Arabians are late maturers, so you probably won't see her at her best until about five or six.

I don't plan to even start climbing on her back until she's 4....hate when horses get swayback from being ridden too early! I'm 5', maybe 105 lbs soaking wet but still...I want to train her naturally using Monty's techniques with her and her get when that time comes. Forget all the "jumping on their backs and holding on for dear life" horse breaking, the only thing that truly breaks with that IMO is the horse's spirit.

Very nice filly!

But, wait a minute.... the seller told you that "kids can hop on her bareback".... are you talking about Bria, or her dam? I sure hope it is not Bria....she is way waaaaay too young for any weight at all on her back. If it were me and that was the case, I would be asking the seller some very serious questions regarding that.

They really do not get a sway back from being ridden too young (sway back is in older horses), but the legs are what is the issue if ridden too young, it is way too hard on the horse's legs/knees.

Possibly her dam, not sure she just said "she" but we were talking about both horses at the time...she tended to jump off to new things in the conversation sometimes. Could be because she's got a lot going on. I hope she meant Rubyana, the dam. I have a lot of pics of Bria none of which include kids upon her back...
