I have one of those.
He is 14.3, really responsive, forward, has nice movement and will jump any and everything put in front of him.
He is Andalusian X TB X Riding Pony.
Instead of shopping for a specific breed, how about just use your list above to shop for a horse that fits your criteria?
Horses are individuals, just like people, you will have different temperaments in each breed rather than the stereotype. Eg Stereotypically, Off the Track Thoroughbreds are supposed to be forward and go-ey with explosive personalities (more so if they are Chestnut)... I have a Chestnut OTTB who is the laziest, most chilled out horse you could come across. I have to use spurs when riding him otherwise he does not go forward at all, take your leg off him and he stops dead - canter to halt in about 2 body lengths.
