Okay, first off there are many strains of Arabians. A few include Polish, Spanish, Egyptian, and Crabbet. These are just a few however... there are many, many more. Within those strains, there are familys. (And in some strains, like egyptian, there are strains within the strain! I believe this is the substrain idea that you mentioned. ) An example of this would be the NR 5 family in the Polish strain of Arabians. I can't really be of more help than this... it would be impossible to list them all. However, if you post the pedigree of the mare you are looking at, I'd wager that there are knowledgeable people on here who wouldn't mind sharing thier expertise. There are databases that spell out the families in a stain, but I highly doubt there is a complete database for any stain. (I might be wrong here, this is just speculation.)
I hope this helps!
Okay, here's an example. (This is Cyclone's mare BTW... I don't think she'll mind!)
This mare is of the pure polish strain, and of the NR 5 tail female line. (tail female refers the the Dam line)
*(alternate personalities include Moe, Moeskii, and Beasturd)
It is a terrible thing to see and have no vision.

Strains usually follow the tail female line.
here are some links
there used to be some even better sites with better explanations but this should do for now
