I NEED: Ponies for adult and child riding

So here is my latest thought on my horsie situation. Should this gelding I intend to check out not work for me, I noted an advertisement for "Ponies, $350." Depending on what they've got, I talked to my older friend and we're considering buying a pony each or going in and sharing a pony.

The reason: A large enough pony would be good for me to just dork around on since all I'm really into is trail riding. It'd also be good to teach my friend's son and my little sisters to ride. (If it's not child friendly in the beginning, I'll ride it until it's peaceful enough to do so.)

What I need from you wonderful horsefolk is the breeds of horses that can accomplish this. To help you out, I am 5'7" and around 120 pounds. I'd like to look at something medium since my youngest sibling is currently six-years-old.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated! :)
[And keep in mind that for now, this is just an idea until I know for sure how things are going to work.]

Even though Haflingers are considered horses many of them are pony height. I'm taller than you and weight more than you and my main riding horse is a 13.3 hand high Haflinger.

Other breeds that might fit the bill are Fjords, Welsh Cobs, Connemara, POA, etc. You might even just find a grade pony as well that would work.

I have a good idea about the number of pony/horse breeds that might fit what I'm looking for, but not only do I not remember them half the time, but I was looking for what everyone else thought.

Much appreciation for your comment. I actually would have never thought of a POA. Thankyouthankyouthankyou. :)
