I'd say a Quarter Horse, Appaloosa, or Paint, one that is fairly low to the ground for barrel and poles, it makes it easier for them to turn :) I'm not too sure as for jumping though, I don't really jump. Although we have a thoroughbred that once jumped ad I've heard TBs and Warmbloods are good for jumping:)

If you aren't planning on competing into super high levels, I would think a taller Arab. I've jumped one that was almost 16 hands, and my trainer had ripped her around barrels before. Arabs don't always come too tall, but you could also look into an Arab Thoroughbred cross. Just my two cents :)

Quarter Horse, Paint or Appy. They might not go very far in jumping but they can do all 3. Me and my friends used to jump our barrel horses at fair, we were usually the competitive ones in the class. I think my old paint mare could have gone pretty far in jumping or hunters with someone else rather than me.
