Question choosing a horse

Im lookng for a horse to lease at a rather low down facility with amazingly talented horses.
However, the breeder doesnt speak much english so how do I choose the perfect horse?

Try looking for the quietest horses.. The ones that stand still the most, keep their heads low, and don't shy at things. That is, if you want a quiet horse

If the horses stand still, isnt it more likely that they'll be lazy in the arena?

Thanks

No. My mare stands still and very quiet at the tie, but is VERY forward and energetic in the arena. Some horses ARE just lazy, but chances are good that you don't really want to lease one that's dancing around in the ties or jumping at anything you pass.
