new Mare what do you think?

Okay, so I have a friend who is selling her Arab mares becuase the place she was keeping her horses at just for closed today. She has until apirl 1 to be off. So she asked me if I want to buy the mares. The old one my friend wants.
I want to know what you think the type of riding I could do on her based by her pictures. I know there not the greatest pictures in the world but they are all I have so far. So here you go.....

Probably english or western... I know people who use arabs for both. My friend started training her quarab to jump and do barrels. I think they're pretty versatile as a breed.
But in all honesty, I think you can train her in whatever she's willing to do. Some horses don't like to jump while other LOVE to jump, and some horses are better working cattle and trail riding but other prefer the arena. I wouldn't make a horse do something it doesn't like doing... If she doesn't like riding period, tough, just don't make her do something that she's "afraid" of.

She gorgeous! She might make a nice little jumper or english horse.

I'd say English. She's nice looking horse. And I agree with other poster: give it a try and you'll see what she prefers.

I think she'd look darling in an English frame under English Tack. Her neck is begging for that gorgeous English headset <3! Arabs are also renown for their big floaty trot, which would look even more lovely under english tack =)

I dont usually care for arabs, but she is gorgeous, that first picture of her is so nice! She is pretty well put together too ^^

I hope you get her!

Nice horse, pretty face. I would say more english riding but go with what ever you feel comfortable.

If you muscle her up (esp in her neck) I think you could just get away with some showing, she has some lovely markings and confromation.

I think she would look goofy with western so I agree with English. Shes dainty so I think the English tack would look great on her.

It also depends on how she moves, she could do saddleseat. But as an above poster said see what she is willing to do and also physically able to do.
