Isn't it just nuts this is the first time I've looked at this?

I knew she had Bask... but I've never spent much time researching stallions/mares (except for Shagyas, which I've now done a TON of research on). From what I can see on her sire's side, they are VERY polish. Which is pretty obvious when you look at her.

No idea about the Saddlebred side.

All I can say is.... Nevy and Deli are not related. LOL. At least, not on the saddlebred side, I don't remember any of her family members on the arabian side. Nev is mostly Radiant Sultan lines on the saddlebred side, I can remember that!

I know next to nothing about Arabs and their various lines. But here's her pedigree if you're interested.

She is DEFINITELY bred for saddle seat, I did indeed know that when I bought her, but I figured, a good saddlebred can make a great dressage horse because of their athleticism. Lol. Her mom was a saddle seat horse, or rather, she was a halter mare that was given to Nevys breeder before she did much showing at all and her dad was a baroque style Friesian which are best at pulling the carriages and saddle seat, but when crossed with more athletic types, they can be good dressage horses. I know of a few Olof babies that are doing well in dressage in the US.

Also, if you remember, the saddle seat trainer was absolutely drooling over Nevy when he started her and many times tried to convince me to switch disciplines. Lol

We shall see this summer how she stacks up against the saddleseater's. Lol. I'm taking her to the Buckeye Baroque show, we'll be doing Dressage obviously, but I'm also going to enter her in halter (the hubby will be trained to do this) and LIBERTY!!! I'm stoked, I know she may not be what they're looking for since these are typically saddleseat movement type classes, but you never know, she might strut her stuff saddleseat style in the liberty class. LOL.

I fully intend too! And photos. The dressage photographer apparently charges $25 "sitting" fee and then gives you the link to download anything you want for no additional charge. I could then purchase prints or higher res digitals. I will have someone armed with the video camera as well, either the hubby or a stranger. Lol

And, I agree with saddleseat not being good for the horse. I watched those horses at the saddleseat barn, how hollow they were and I saw the types of injuries they typically sustained from long term use in this manner.
