Best Breed For Me?!?

I'm into jumping, very basic dressage, trail riding, and just having fun riding.
I would like a horse that's fairly well mannered and doesn't have it in his blood to be high strung or spooky or uncontrollable. But I also don't want one that is adapt to plodding along.
I like the look of a draft and taller horses (not taller then 16.3 hh)

The TB and warmbloods are good jumper and dressage horses, but to high strung for my liking (generally).
Draft/Draft crosses have the look I like and are good in dressage and trail, but jumping puts to much strain on tendons and I wouldn't want to risk ruining a good horse.
Arab/Arab-cross are great in all my disciplines, but not the build I like and usually high strung.
My best bet is probably a paint or a QH.
If you know any other breeds, let me know please!!!!!!!

I personally think a TB crossed with a Draft is what your looking for. You will get the temperament of the Draft and the agility and willing to go from the TB. I think the draft would be a Percheron. My friend has the same cross as I just told you, her name is Venus, and she is AMAZING! She can jump like 4ft and is totally calm. But that is just my opinion on what horse you should get. (:

Draft crosses are awesome, I used to own a TB/Belgian/QH cross and he jumped 3' no problem. I'd suggest looking at the individual horse for temperament, and just go based off that. I've learned that no two horses are alike, and you can get psycho drafts or calm and wonderful OTTB's. Just check out some horses and see what you like!
QH's are awesome too, they just tend to be shorter than 16'

Every breed offers exceptions. I'd suggest not limiting yourself to breed (different bloodlines within breeds present differences in temperment, trainability, etc). Good luck on your search!

Yes here are a few links....

Some of them are jumpers, but im pretty sure they can be used otherwise, I think the last one will be your best bet, if he isn't too small(: if you want more links let me know(: Horse ID: 1678154 - Hank Horse ID: 1679951 - Priscilla Horse ID: 1623137 - Isadora Horse ID: 1666125 - Takin' Chances

Yeah I would agree with a draft cross! Percheron/TB cross I know usually does REALLY good in Dressage with the right combo! :)

TB X draft is what I thought would be good.
