    24 y/o arab mare

    Simple question! What do you think?

    Breed:Arab
    Gender:mare
    Age:24
    What I want to do: Trails, light riding, maybe some w/p (Just fun shows)
    What I see: A little sway back, and maybe she toes out a bit

    The back may just be because she has not been ridden regularly. It could improve with work. I would have a vet check her over, but she looks like she would be sound for what you want.

    there are arabs that do ride western pleasure, it's a little different in the headset than say western pleasure with a QH, but it is still western pleasure.
    For example;

    To the OP-
    The mare looks very good for her age, but I would worry about her needing maintenance to keep her looking and moving well.
    It doesn't hurt to set up a time to try her!

    Thank you! The shows are just open shows, so any breed is welcome.

    That's great that you're going to look at her! She looks like a sweetie.
    She doesn't look to have a swayback to me, she just looks butt high but I'm not so good at identifying swaybacks. Haha

    My girl and her are age twins! =P

    Agreed, I don't see a sway back but she does look quite butt high. It could be the angle of the picture, but I'm leaning towards her just being built that way. I don't see any problems, she's a lovely mare for just a have fun mount!
