I've known many very quite TB, in fact, I own one. They do tend to be a sensitive breed though. I also know great, quiet ponies and, while suggest an arabian for show hunters, I've known plenty of quiet ones.
I think I would suggest a warmblood. I've known many that were very calm and quiet to ride, though like all breeds this is not true of all of them. For lower level hunters a QH or appendix will work just fine. And before I get yelled at for that comment, I'm saying generally a warmblood will do better than a QH/appendix in the hunter ring.
Any horse can be lazy a nice thing about warmbloods is that for many of them, even if they are lazy, their stride length makes up for it.
