    Thanks for all the good suggestions! :)

    About the rescue, I've never heard of any in Denmark and I wouldn't know where to find one, to be honest. But yes, the purpose of the horses I want is just for them to enjoy their life in a herd, and some exercise here and there

    Well boy I'll tell ya, rescues don't seem particularly easy to find online! I had a heck of a time finding any within about 50 miles of the bay area, and I KNOW there's one in Concord that I contacted within the last year but I couldn't find them to save my life! Maybe check around at some of the boarding stables in your area? That's where I got most of my rescue info.

    You don't find rescues in Denmark and Germany like you do in the US. In fact a lot of US rescued horses end up in Europe. The laws there are much tougher and animal abuse and neglect is MUCH less common.
    For your location you'll find it easier to find a horse to buy locally than to locate a local rescue.
    Growing up in Deutschland, where I learned to ride, I never saw a neglected animal anywhere. The parents of one of my local friends there once told me that you'd get in more trouble for beating your dog than you would for beating your spouse.

    I own an Arab and know a guy who breeds them, and they are generally very calm. I find it all depends on the owner and the environment the horse lives in. For example, my arab lives at a dude ranch, he is as calm as any QH I have ever seen. But if you look at Arabs that may have shown halter or libertyyou will find that they will be a little hotter as they were bred to be flashy.

    For your location there are some horses known for being calm. I know that Percherons, Frisians and Gypsy Horse are all calm breeds that you should be find locally. I learned to ride on a Percheron in Kassel and have never seen one that wasn't pretty easy going. A product of their breeding, the Gypsy Horse tends to be a very people orentated animal. The Frisian stallions I know from Netherlands are both more docile than some geldings I've known. Both are very calm and love human attention (so I have two of their offspring now). But look at the individual horse, not the breed. Horses are like people in that they each have their own personality. Select every horse as an individual not a breed. Unless you are looking to breed them or want a breed specific trait in your horses.

    Im in the US. I would suggest QHs. Most are very gentle and kid-friendly.
    Like they said, a horse rescue would be great if you could find one ! I don't know how common they are over there!
