She's adorable! I really can't see any reason not to breed her, as long as you have a good plan for the foal - especially if you don't plan on keeping it forever. (Especially if she isn't registered.) This is fairly big for me to say, since I'm usually very anti-breeding grade horses. The mare looks like a preformance horse, which I'm impressed with - too many mares without a showing history are out there!! Just promise yourself that you will train the foal, or if you sell it, that it goes somewhere good.
Okay I'm done my rant!
I would stick with another pony breed, like a Connemara, maybe a Welsh... possibly a small (very small - pony size small) TB.
I would look for something with a good shoulder, as she doesn't have the best shoulder, as well as a stud with a very strong topline. She does tie in very low on her shoulder as well, so try and get a stud that has a clean line and a good tie-in.
There are very few flaws with your mare, but it is your responsability as a breeder (even if you only produce one foal) to breed the best to the best... your goal is to produce a foal that will never have to worry about not having a good home :)
Where do you live? I'd love to play matchmaker for your mare! Do you want live cover, or is AI okay? How much do you want to spend on a stud? How far is too far away to ship her/the AI stuff?
