If you mares dam is a AWS Horse then please feel free to contact the AWS directly and request at least her pedigree information. You could also make inquiry to WHO and WHAT the sire is.
If you need any more help beyond the above suggestion please feel free to message me here or email me and I will put you in touch with the right person at AWS to find out. The director will be here in VA in just 2 weeks as we are hosting a AWS Inspection.
Regarding your mare if she is a SWB, even if her breeding really is (could be) if she has not been presented and inspected to be included in their registry technically she is not even if her breeding says otherwise :( It gets a bit complicated. For what its worth we do have a SWB mare here in foal to our Purebred Arabian stallion who just happens to be AWS Approved/Registered/Accepted for breeding
Confused yet LOL
