Arabian pedigree

Hello all,
I am selling an Arabian for a friend of mine. Wondering if anyone on here can give me some insight into her pedigree. She looks to be well bred, but I know nothing about Arabians. I attached her papers.

Good bloodlines, mostly Polish with some CMK. Unfortunately, well bred Arabians are a dime a dozen nowadays, and many are in rescues with similar bloodlines.
Many of the horses farther back in the pedigree are very famous.

However, if I google this horse's sire and dam their information doesn't pop up, which usually means they were not shown much or campaigned. Often the most popular horses for people showing Arabs are those with relatives that were recently well known and sought after.

If the horse has great conformation and you can get great photos of the horse in classic Arab poses, along with video of great movement, you can try marketing the horse on the Arabian Horse Association Marketplace website.
Of course if the horse is well trained or has been successfully shown in some discipline, you will be able to sell the horse much more easily.

My *Bask granddaughter was $700 as a halter broke horse, and my other green purebred Arab was free. So training and showing record makes a huge difference in what you can expect to get for a horse, much more than pedigree.

Man, given this mares breeding, I'd love to see pictures of her. She's 3/4 Polish Arabian via her lines to Bask and Aladdinn, both of whom had a profound impact on the breed. They were know for consistently passing on their phenotype to get and grand get. Great performance and halter horses with intelligence and willing personalities.

Is she broke to ride? Any show records? Arabians are known for longevity, at 22 she's got some years left in her. Please do not let her go to auction, or for less than $800. as she'd most likely end up with a kill buyer. That would be heartbreaking.
There's a group on FB called Arabian Rescue and Rehoming. It has thousands of dedicated Arabian lovers who network to find them permanent loving homes. I suggest you check them out.

As @HombresArablegacy said, the mare is 22. Unless she is a proven broodmare, shes too old to breed, so her worth is going to depend on her ridability or other general usefulness.

I am a serious Bask one time I had 4 Bask grand get; now I have 5 mares out of those.

I don't break horses, I FIX them!

I am always saddened to see 22yr old horses put up for sale instead of retired or rehomed to a soft job

She has actually already had one foal. But she is, in my opinion, too old to breed. She is being rehomed for retirement, so no worries there. She is not going to be at auction, or sold for less than $800. I was hesitant to advertise her at that price due to the kill buy market, so no worries. She does not NEED to be sold, but we think she would love to retire to a home where she can be loved on more often. She was used as a therapy horse for disabled children, she’s a gem. She is well broken, but like most Arabs has the energy and spunk of a much younger horse. She’s a blast to ride! I’ll post some pictures for those who asked. She really is a sweet horse. And she’s gorgeous too.

Perhaps one of her therapy riders would be willing to provide a retirement home. When I was in a situation where I needed to sell my saddle horses I gave my Quarab to a family with a handicapped child that just wanted a horse to love on. That mare lived to a very old age being that child's dream horse. She was never ridden just groomed and made a pet of.

Wow, I really like her! Looks like a real horse, not a Fairy Horse like so many modern Arabs do.
